Stacked with some of the best known dancers in the Bruk Up, Voguing, Housing, and Jersey Club scenes, Red Bull Music Academy’s Bounce Ballroom is set to rock the house at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on May 1. As this is RBMA’s kick-off event for its jam-packed NYC calendar, you can expect to have a rollicking good time, and do some, well, bouncing around.
Easter Sunday is on 4/20 this year - and since Easter is the second largest candy-buying holiday of the year, we decided we’d make a list of the ten of the best candy shops in the city. Whatever your beliefs or… habits…(cough)…are, it’s important to get your sugar fix.
This shop has been a staple of the Lower East Side since 1937. With a huge selection and “solid discounts on everything from sour balls to upscale chocolates,” you really can’t go wrong.
Dylan’s Candy Bar
A modern Willy Wonka factory on the Upper East Side, Dylan Lauren’s shop has an unmatched selection of specialty candy of all kinds.
London Candy Company
As someone who spent a year studying abroad in London, this writer can say that a lot of their basic candy is just plain better than our American stuff, but feel free to come try some for yourself.
This relatively new Williamsburg gem promises its customers “the very best in Confectionary and Snoconery.”
Sweden has the highest candy consumption per-capita, so they must know what they’re doing at this Swedish Candy Store.
This is almost as much a laboratory as it is a candy shop, where visitors get a glimpse behind the curtain to see how the sculpted sweets are made.
The Sweet Life
Another landmark of the Lower East Side, this old school candy shop has a great selection of candies, nuts, and dried fruits, as well as the motto “anything can be dipped in chocolate”
Right next to Nathan’s Hot Dogs on Coney Island, William’s Candy specializes in candy apples and marshmallow treats.
Jacques Torres Chocolate
Jacques Torres has several locations around the city where you can find a delicious and innovative selection of everything chocolate.
Hershey’s Chocolate World
If you’re willing to brave the crowds, this Times Square landmark is a 16 story monument to everything Hershey’s, complete with lights, props, souvenirs, and of course, chocolate.
However you choose to celebrate this Sunday, make sure you do it right- with as much candy as possible. After all, it’s a holiday and you deserve a little something sweet.
