Who Doesn’t Like Candy?

27 Jun

A new-ish store has opened in Manhattan. Or should I call it a shop. Or perhaps shoppe, since it’s filled with sweets from the UK. Owned by a former restauranteur from England who goes by “Jigs,” The London Candy Co. is filled to the brim with Cadbury, Thortons and Terry’s (you know—the chocolate orange), along with “digestive” biscuits and Walker’s crisps (salt to offset the sugar). When I visited, Jigs was handing out candy to kids on the street like a British Willy Wonka.

And not to worry if you find yourself on the Upper East Side at 9am without chocolate on the brain—the place also serves Stumptown coffee.

Cheerio.
