NYC 2011 PART SIX: Candy

This one may be a doozie. You’ve been warned. This trip involved far more candy than I anticipated, just as it involved more pizza and burgers than I expected. It’s a wonder we didn’t gain more weight on this trip. Must have been the miles of walking we did!

SOSIE: I LOVE CANDY!!! I might have an addiction to it. All four places combined would be a wonderland for me, but I really liked Economy Candy. There were candies there that I haven’t seen since a was a kid, and it was great. Also, their prices were great. They had Jordan Almonds which are my favorite candy of all time and it was great to get a pound of it for such a cheap price.

LAUREN: Dylan’s Candy Bar was way overpriced, but it was a lot of fun to walk around in and window shop. The candy I did buy was good and they had plenty of cute gift items if you’re looking to get someone something from the city. At M&M World I really wish I had gotten some M&M’s! They had so many varieties. After going there, the Hershey store was a disappointment. They didn’t have nearly the amount of things that M&M World had and down the street at the Walgreens I could have purchased the same candy for half the price. Economy Candy was awesome, and they had really good prices. I enjoyed reading all the funny mint tins. They had a lot of random hard to find candy. Because of Sosie, I tried Jordan Almonds for the first time.

KELSEY: M&M World was definitely fun, and I found so many types of M&Ms I didn’t know existed. I absolutely love the peanut butter ones and the pretzel ones, so it was great you could buy them in bulk instead of in a normal pack. Economy Candy was a playground. They had my beloved Kinder chocolate and Zots that I usually only find at German delis or World Market. Something about that store gave me the urge to shoplift, though I refrained (I’m sure my mom is happy to hear that).
