Economy Candy

This family-owned Lower East Side staple is stocked (and has been, since 1937) from floor-to-ceiling with a mix of vintage candies like Fruit Stripes Gum and Pez to modern day sweets that your grandparents would turn their noses up at. For a fun weekday activity while you're bored at work, browse the store’s website to see their candy offerings organized by color. Next, prepare to rack your brain for any excuse to buy a pound or two (or three). No more sorting out the brown M&Ms!
