Serious Eats finally discovers Economy Candy

November 7th, 2013 by Rosa

I visited Economy Candy back in 2007 (man that feels like a lifetime ago; the below photo is from before I figured out how to take nicer close-up photos) and have been dreaming about going back ever since. David Lebovitz has documented his visit there, as has Cybele from Candy Blog. Serious Eats is finally […]

Economy Candy in the NY Times

January 21st, 2010 by Rosa

Economy Candy (of which I am a huge proponent) gets a shout out in a NY Times’s 36 hours in NYC article. I hope it brings them tons of extra customers; they deserve them! Here’s the blurb from the article: “A giant Gummi rat. How New York is that? You can pick one up to […]

Economy Candy – ZOMG!

September 10th, 2007 by Rosa

My visit to New York was incredibly fun (and rather expensive). Lunch at Cafe Boulud was lovely and tasty, even if the portions were a bit small. I had the corn soup, the scallops, and this blueberry cake-y thing (I forget the exact name) for dessert. Mmmm! Economy Candy was candy heaven. The cheapest bulk […]

Serious Eats makes a candy ark

November 26th, 2013 by Rosa

I had posted earlier about how Serious Eats had finally given Economy Candy the glowing write-up that it deserves. After they bought all of Economy Candy’s gummi animals, they turned them into an adorable Serious Eats ark (photo from Serious Eats): They even put up a giant hi-res version in case you wanted to sweeten […]

Candy Filled Modern Love

September 7th, 2010 by Rosa

Last weekend’s NY Times Magazine Modern Love column was a poignant and candy-filled memoir. If only I could write like that! I think I may consume too much candy to have such strong memory ties to specific sweets. But I do have plenty of memories where loved ones and candy intersect: I have thoughtful friends […]

January 29th, 2010 by Rosa

Today, y’all get the latter half of my take on Cybele’s list of the 110 Essential Candies for Candivores. In case you missed it, the first half of the list posted last Friday. I’ve bolded what I’ve tried before and sprinkled comments and photos throughout, after the jump.

Nestle Yorkie

September 25th, 2009 by Rosa

I often came across Nestle’s Yorkie bars during my summer in England, but I never bought them because they’re “NOT FOR GIRLS!” It wasn’t that I was intimidated by the tagline or the red-slashed purse-toting icon; it was that I believed any candy company misogynistic enough to have such a slogan, even if only tongue-in-cheek, […]

Candy as comfort, candy as expense

April 9th, 2009 by Rosa

Two candy pieces from the NY Times. First, reports of an upswing in candy sales during these tough economic times, in keeping with historical trends. Two things immediately struck me after reading the article: 1. Raymond Schneider of the opening paragraph could save a lot of money buying his candy someplace other than Dylan’s Candy […]

NYC is full of wonderful candy

December 5th, 2008 by Rosa

To my NYC readers, I’ll be in the city this Sunday afternoon and evening. One of my friends wants to visit the Met. I want to hit up Economy Candy and possibly visit Bergdorf Goodman for the Vosges tasting (and to check out the 5th Ave window displays; those of you who live in the […]
