5 NYC Sweet Spots to Buy Delicious Easter Candy

Whether you're a lover of velvety chocolate eggs, rainbow-colored jelly beans, marshmallow Peeps, newfangled flavors, or simply vintage treats, somewhere in NYC is the perfect candy store for you. On the hunt to fill your Easter basket? Indulge your inner kid (or maybe even the actual kids in your life) at the best candy shops in NYC this Easter.

1. Dylan’s Candy Bar

Dylan’s Candy Bar is probably the most prolific of NYC’s candy stores, with multiple locations scattered throughout the city. Housing over 7,000 confections and an unparalleled selection of candies from around the world, it’s a must stop shop that satisfies even the most sophisticated sweet tooth. Visit the flagship store on the Upper East Side for three floors of every kind of candy you could possibly imagine, a candy-coated stairway, jumbo gumball machine, and a ‘Candy Bar’ serving candy-themed cocktails. Dylan’s Easter Collection includes themed ‘Bunny Baskets’ with Peeps and assorted candy, crispy milk chocolate eggs, chewy gummy kabobs, an Easter Bunny truffle gift box, and a flower tackle box with pink Easter candy like jelly beans, gummy bears, and chocolate pieces in shades of pink. 1011 3rd Ave.

2. MarieBelle New York

Shortly after MarieBelle’s flagship opened in SoHo, Oprah gave the shop a shout-out, so you know it’s good! MarieBelle specializes in signature chocolate and ganache, all hand-made in their Brooklyn factory. Easter treats include green eggs with milk chocolate pretzel pearls, purple eggs with dark chocolate blueberry pearls, chocolate bunnies, and Easter themed ganache, all wrapped up in colorful spring-themed boxes. 484 Broome St.

3. Kee's Chocolates

Founded in 2002 by Chocolatier Kee Ling Tong, Kee’s Chocolates has a small Upper West Side location that showcases handcrafted bonbons and truffles in exotic flavors like balsamic, black sesame, Champagne, honey saffron, and smoked salt. Design your own spring bouquet-inspired Easter box with floral flavors like black rose, elderflower, jasmine, and lavender. 228 Columbus Ave.


4. M&M’s World

Positioned in the middle of Times Square, M&M’s World has two floors of wall-to-wall milk, peanut, and specialty M&M’s chocolate. Their ‘world’s biggest wall of M&M’s’ features fun colors not typically found in stores and exclusive flavors like cherry and strawberry. Each year, they roll out their Easter collection with treats like White Chocolate Key Lime Pie Easter M&M’s, Speckled Eggs, M&M’s Minis Easter Tubes, Milk Chocolate Easter Candy Canes, and a variety of M&M’s with pastel-colored candy shells. Personalize your purchase by getting images or customized messages on your M&M’s. For more chocolatey goodness, visit Hershey’s Chocolate World, located just around the corner. 1600 Broadway

5. Economy Candy

A NYC staple since the 1930s, Economy Candy is stocked from floor-to-ceiling with a perfectly curated selection of sweet goodies. From imported candies to obscure chocolate bars, you can find a snack for every type of candy lover. Tasty Easter sweets include jelly beans, oversized gummy bears (a single bear being the equivalent of over 200 regular bears), Cosby Surprise and Kinder Eggs, chocolate bunnies, Easter Pez, and Palmer Double Crisp Chocolate Carrots. 108 Rivington St.
