Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching and, chances are, we all need a sweets fix.  New York City has far more to offer than fashion, theater and fine dining… we also have some of the best candy stores and chocolatiers in the world. So indulge a little bit and check out our top 5 sweets shops in the City.

1 Dylan's Candy Bar

This candy shop is the crossroads between food and fashion; it's owned by daughter of designer Ralph Lauren, Dylan Lauren. We love the candy shop because it's got a design edge and stocks tons of varieties of candy, as well as her own personal Dylan's Candy Bar line. And if you are watching the waistline, they offer a nice selection of sugar-free candies, as well.

2 Papabubble

This Barcelona candy boutique churns out the most adorable and delectable handmade candies. They use creativity and imagination to combine flavors that you will find no where else. We suggest trying their perfectly sweet ring-shaped hard candies and their signature chopped caramel sticks. An added bonus, the shop will personalize your candy order if you so desire!

3 The Sweet Life

The Sweet Life has every kind of candy you could possibly covet from gourmet chocolate to dried fruits to European candy. The shop has been a landmark on the historic Lower East Side since 1982. Whether you want to go for a solo trip or have them cater your next occasion, they churn out the highest-quality sweets and stay true to their motto, "Anything can be dipped in chocolate."

4 Michel Cluizel Chocolat

This Parisian transplant has quickly become a favorite in the world of chocolate lovers. Michel Cluizel has been cooking up fine chocolates since the 1940s. They offer a vast selection of truffles and chocolates like no other. Cluizel's luxury chocolates come from his vision to start at the very base and find remarkable plantations to elaborate legendary chocolates. He seeks out exceptional cocoa beans and the finest ingredients and goes from there. How can you resist that?

5 Williams Candy

Williams Candy is a Coney Island mainstay, and has been a destination for 75 years. Located in the heart of Coney Island, their world famous candy treats have been featured widely, and they are best known for their deliciously fresh candy apples. They offer their original candy apple made with the Williams family recipe. You can get your apple with add-ons like peanuts and white coconut. We also suggest a big bite of their caramel peanut marshmallow stick.
