London Candy Company


I teach a student on the Upper East Side. The other day, walking back to the train from her apartment, I noticed a cute little coffee shop on the way. It's not hard for me to be lured into a new cafe, seeing as discovering new ones is one of my life's passions. However, I've passed by this one a few times before finally deciding to duck in for a cup. It turns out, it's actually a candy store! And interesting enough, they sell candy only from Britain.

I would never expect to find a quirky little spot like this on the Upper East Side, of all places. It's such a buttoned-up community. But another plus- they serve Sumptown coffee! I'll probably find myself stopping in all the time after my lessons. Next time I think I'll pick up one of those CurlyWurlies.

  1. This is so funny, there are so many shops over here dedicated to selling American candy, I never thought of it working the other way round. Love the way they have decorated, so cute xo

  2. That honey infused ice cream with a honeycomb sounds amazing! I have had very little English candy, although when my friend goes to visit family, he always brings some back! It's such a cute shop, and definitely a niche market! We don't have any here!

  10. Ha ha! I am always on the look out for American candy over here - Hershey's hugs seem impossible to find! - and now you have our lush sweets and chocs to enjoy. I recommend Cadburys buttons, definitely get a Curly Wurly and if you get a Crunchie you HAVE to nibble the chocolate off first then devour the honeycomb! Enjoy! x

  14. Ha! That's surreal. Funny thing is, we don't call it candy over here, we call it sweets! The only thing us Brits really refer to as "candy" are candy canes. Everything else tends to be called sweets or sweeties. Though chocolate is never referred to as a sweet... It's always specified as chocolate. Little things, eh?
    I go nuts over American sweets. Especially lifesavers, ugh, so wonderful (cherry is my favourite). There's an American Shop in my nearest "big" town which sells lucky charms too (my favourite food), but its £8.99 a box!! Ouch. Treats only :)

  15. I would leave with so much candy if I stepped foot into that place. Love the way the shop looks! It's darling.

  16. This places looks awesome! My husband would be in heaven - he grew up in Ireland and is always picking up nostalgic candy that reminds him of home :).

  17. What a nice place! And they sell Pimms! Hurray to that!

    There's a place like this one is Pasadena which I love! They sell all kinds of old candy and sodas you don't get to see in normal stores. I think we're going to get our Christmas gifts for the family there, shhh ;), hehe.
