One good looking candy store - Handsome Dan's

There is good news for candy freaks of all ages in the East Village. Brooklyn's Handsome Dan's has opened a new location on 1st Avenue. The store is a nostalgic tribute to candy stores of old with an excellent and diverse selection of candy. Jars full of classic candy share the shelves with Brooklyn staples like Mast Brothers and Liddabit Sweets. Regional candies like Abba-Zaba and Big Hunk are represented as are European and Japanese candies. The candy is available individually and by the pound as well as by the Mason Jar (they did start in Williamsburg after all).

In addition to candy, Handsome Dan's also prominently features SnoCones and Cotton Candy, which is spun to order right in the store. The small store and shelves are painted white so the brilliant colors of the candy and packaging stand out. The staff is friendly and welcoming to kids of all ages and yes, there is a Handsome Dan. This is a dangerous store, especially if your are hungry or have kids, or both. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Candy! Candy! Candy!


A taste of Brooklyn

A mix of the high and low, literally.

Make your own (I think)

Nostalgic or  hipster? Both? Certainly reusable.

My kind of street sign.
