Dylan’s Candy Bar probably has the largest selection of candy in the city. You can buy almost anything here including sweet tasting drinks. The colors and candy themed walls and furniture will make you smile. If you’ve never been, make it a point to go once (though you’ll probably end up going multiple times).
1011 Third Ave at 60th St. New York
No matter who you are: tourist, New Yorker, tourist pretending to be a New Yorker, you cannot resist the giant Hershey store. They give you free chocolate when you walk in. Free chocolate! What more could you ask for? With bags filled with more chocolate than anyone thought imaginable and all of the cute teddy bears with chocolate names stamped on them, how could you not love this place?

From classic candies to candies you could never think of on your own, the Economy Candy shop is the place to be! Here you’ll find everything from sour belts to Pop Rocks to candies from the 80s you never thought you would see again. They also just happen to sell the largest Hershey’s Bar ever (5 lbs!!). If you’re looking for a candy that particularly hard to find or just want to go crazy and buy as much candy as possible this is the place!
108 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002
This place sells both chocolate and ice cream! They have chocolate bars lining the walls, iced hot chocolate, brownies, cookies, and truffles! This place is small, but don’t let that deter you. If chocolate is what you’re after, head here immediately!
