With Easter on the horizon, we thought it would be the perfect time to talk about the best confections in the neighborhood. After all, if there’s any reason to indulge in a sweet spring treat, it’s this one.
If you’re after old school candies, It’Sugar (1870 Broadway between 61st and 62nd Streets) is definitely the place to go. The loud, bright space is well-stocked with everything from gigantic Hershey’s bars to Nerds to bins of gummy-everything.
For the more refined sweet tooth, try Sugarfina (10 Columbus Circle), coined “the ultimate candy boutique for grown ups.” Filled with modernly packaged artisanal candies (think: Champagne bubble bites and golden truffle chocolate eggs), the space is a true indulgence for any sugary craving.
In the mood for a baked good/candy hybrid? There’s no better choice than Treat House (452 Amsterdam between 81st and 82nd Streets), purveyors of gourmet marshmallow and crispy rice treats. With flavors like s’mores, caramel sea salt, and chocolate raspberry, you definitely don’t need to be a kid to enjoy these yummy bites.
Happy early Easter to all!
