Best Penny Candy - 2008
A nameless shop in Sunset Park
By now you?ve loaded up on jelly beans at Economy Candy or eaten your weight in M&Ms at the Chocolate Bar?but if you want a more exotic bang for your dime, nickel, or quarter, you might enjoy the South American sweets on offer at a nameless shop in Sunset Park. Our favorite bo?te is at 822 Fifth Avenue, corner of 34th Street, which, in addition to CDs, videos, cowboy hats, and sporting goods, stocks an impressive amount of treats?some prepackaged (Bubu Lubu, Chiclets), some seemingly homemade (dulces de coco or dulces de calabaza). Try the chili tamarind pops!
