This Rivington Street store is so much fun, you'll feel like a kid in a candy store or, if you're actually a kid reading this, you can take that literally. Here you'll find everything from high end chocolates, dried fruits, halvah, Big League Chew to gigantic Pez dispensers, there's something for every sweet tooth. I picked up some gummy fangs and eyeball gumballs for my halloween goodie bags.
Economy Candy has been family run and owned in the Lower East Side since 1937 and its sweet treats have filled tons of halloween sacks in those years. It's a New York institution and everyone who lives here should stop by at least once, particularly if you have a soft spot for candy and/or nostalgia. This means you, Mike Stermer.
