Candy is a wonderful thing; whether sweet, sour, salty, or tart, this guilty pleasure of innocent proportions radiates with universal appeal, offering so many flavors it is as if it were tailored to each individuals preference. And nestled cozily on 267 Bleecker Street in the West Village is the London Candy Company --a delightful candy shop that boast a massive collection of delectable treats from England.
We had the oppurtunity to chat with Jigs Patel, the owner of the London Candy Company, and after the Q &A, found ourselves very hesitant to leave the candy heaven. From the moment we walked in we were captivated by the ghoulish goodies aligning the wall, and Patel's charisma added even more color to a store already so bright. It is very clear that this unique store is so because, aside from offering unique delights, it offers personable, and outstanding costumer service for a truly one-of-a-kind candy-shopping experience.

What separates you from other NYC candy stores? Why should people come here?
The main differences between candy in the UK and candy in America is the use of artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup--we don't use any in the UK! That is the main reason that candy from here tastes completely different.
