If you’re planning on hosting a sweet little party, then there’s no better place better than Jack’s Candy Store. From floor-to-ceiling there are stacks of every candy and treat you can imagine in this downtown warehouse. And you can shop by brand, color, and theme, making planning a snap.

If your kids are lovers of all things gummy, whether sweet or sour, then Sockerbit is the place for you. Sockerbit loosely translates into “sugar cube” in Swedish, which is also the namesake for one of their most popular candies—a little square of homemade marshmallow that comes in pink or white. The stark white of the store is a great canvas for the multicolored hues of the candies.
Munchies has the largest selection of Kosher candy in the city, from chocolate and gummies to lollipops and truffles. But whether you keep Kosher or not, you’ll want to drop in for their biggest claim to fame: the largest selection of Gimbal’s jelly beans this side of San Francisco. Be adventurous and try the buttered popcorn flavor or stick with favorites like hot cinnamon and lemon meringue.
