Food in East Village & Lower East Side

Bringing sweetness to the ’hood since 1937, this candy shop is stocked with floor-to-ceiling goods in package and bulk, and is home to some beautiful antique gum machines. You’ll find everything from childhood favorites like jelly beans, lollipops, gum balls, Cadbury imports, gummy worms and rock candy, to more grown-up delicacies such as halvah, green tea bonbons, hand-dipped chocolates, dried ginger and papaya.

There's also an eye-catching assortment of collectible Pez dispensers.
