I am a health freak as I love my gym, nature, fresh air, chia seeds, coconut, and vegan concoctions. And yet, I am a sucker for candy, too. I KNOW, right? Hard to believe, but I love it. I hoard Halloween candy all year because I love the shiny wrappers and the delicious, chocolatey, oh-so-sweet treats inside. Drooling now. And it is so cliche, but a candy store to me, is well, like one big candy store. I can’t just look, and I want to taste everything — it all looks delicious and I NEED. EVERYTHING. THEN. AND. NOW. SHAKE. SHAKE. CONVULSIONS.
Constantly on my Scandinavian kick (PROMISE LAST SCANDINAVIAN POST!), I recently “found” myself in this posh, modern, beautiful Swedish Candy Store, Sockerbit, in the West Village. I first heard about this store through my dear friend, Camilla, who the sweetheart she is, would always bring us candy on any holiday (talk about being a good friend!). So when I “stumbled” in this store, I could have died. My heaven.
So check out Sockerbit. They sell online (thank heavens) as well as at their retail space at 89 Christopher Street, in NYC. It is the perfect pick-me-up present for any friend, or yourself. Especially when the days get shorter and the nights get longer.
