For me, the proverbial delights of being a kid in a candy store are perfectly captured at Sockerbit in the West Village. The minamlist white interior highlights their colorful candy treats, including gummies, marshmallows, sour gummies, chocolates, and many, many more.
It's pure joy to fill up your bag with whatever your heart desires, and my favorites include the toffee-filled chocolates and the strawberry sweet hearts. I was amused to learn on my most recent visit that one thing you won't find at this decidedly Swedish shop are Swedish fish, which apparently are actually Canadian. Who knew?!
Whenever there's a holiday or occasion that calls for candy, I find myself stopping by Sockerbit to stock up accordingly.
