We’re from the UK and really enjoyed picking up chocolate that we can’t get at home. My only gripe is some of the mix and match sweets have a minimum weight to purchase.

This place is great in that it has a ton of selections that you can’t find any place else, not even Dylan’s Candy Store. Dylan’s store may anesthetically look better but Economy candy beats it in terms of variety and price. I was thrilled to...More

We brought a group of teenage girls here and it was a big hit - floor to ceiling candy and something for everyone. Lots of specialty and hard to find items as well as very well priced candy in general.

Every type of candy you might imagine! Very cramped and hard to move around but I think that's part of the charm here. Hard to see everything they have to offer. Would most definitely recommend a stop in during your visit to NYC.

Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
