Economy Candy, New York City
(4.6/5 based on 240 reviews on the web)
At Economy Candy, browse through countless aisles stacked with candies both vintage and modern. Opened in the wake of the Great Depression in 1937, this is the oldest candy store in New York City. A triangular yellow sign that says “Proceed with Candy” welcomes you in the front of the store. Check out a large table in the center filled with virtually every sweet from your childhood, including gummy animals, jelly beans, pixie sticks, wax lips, and mega lollipops. An extensive selection of dried fruit, nuts, and halvah is also on display. For a taste of old New York, try a dried apricot coated in chocolate. Comic book lovers will enjoy leafing through a stack of old comic books. The store also sells baseball cards, vintage gumball machines, box tins, board games, and lunchboxes.

  • They have EVERYTHING from old school candy to the latest and greatest all at fair prices. Skip Dylan's chocolate and the other fluffy candy shops.
  • Love this place. Would way rather spend my money here than places that overcharge for cute packaging.
  • This has been the go to place for candy since I was kid. They have everything you need at good prices.
  • A plethora of goodies to choose from! It's hard to resist getting bagfuls of sugar! Very reasonably priced.
  • The best candy store in the city. They have something for everyone, including since rare and vintage candy. The best part is that everything here is well-priced, unlike other candy stores in Manhattan ;-)
