A super Scandinavian shop serving up bright colored candies with funky names.
High quality candy that's good for you [ok, well, as good for you as candy can get anyhow...]
What's the Deal?
What's amazing about NYC is the plethora of micro-communities you discover over time. While the Swedes were one of the largest 10 groups immigrating at the turn of the century, there's not an obvious 'Swedish section' of town. You'll find them at Sockerbit though, choosing from candy that you won't find elsewhere in the city. Delivered fresh [as opposed to stale], the candy is free of transfats + GMO's, only using natural coloring. Flavors + textures can be exotic like the salty/sweet black licorice, or the chocolate dipped gummy bears. We're personally fans of the sours like the Fizzy Roll, Watermelon Skulls + Sour Peach Lips.
