Run by the third generation of the Cohen family, it’s earned the coveted title of New York’s oldest retail candy shop.
And though their brick-and-mortar is a must-visit for any New Yorker with a sweet tooth, they also do online orders through their website! Which means you can send a piece of New York to anyone in the country.
The historic NYC business began offering online orders during the pandemic, when they had to shut down their store for about 18 months. Luckily, Economy Candy had their grand reopening this past September but kept the delivery option in place.
You can order candies individually (the site has “old time favorites,” “candy and chocolate through the decades” and you can ever search by color!), or one of their delightful “Candy Care Packages.”
Place an order to stock up for yourself, or send a care package to someone else who needs a sweet surprise. You can choose between a basic pack, combo pack, merch pack, health nut pack, or movie night pack. They include a combination of candy, chocolate, gummies, hard candy or nuts, dried fruits, etc.
They even make speciality ones for holidays, with Valentine’s Day still on sale and Easter coming up.
Either way, you’re supporting an iconic NYC store! Place your order here.
Of course, you can also now visit Economy Candy in person and take in the 2,000 varieties of candy for yourself.
