Best Candy Shops in Philly


The Easter Bunny has come and gone, which means one thing: discounted candy!

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’re in luck, as there are lots of great spots near your Edgewater apartment to find candy of all stripes, from gourmet chocolate to bubble gum and everything in between. Now that Easter is behind us, many shops will be slashing prices to get their merchandise out the door, so now is a great time to stock up. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you can even stock up on some sweet treats for Mom—or just keep it all for yourself!

Here are a few of the best candy shops in town:

Termini Brothers Bakery: Famed South Philly bakery Termini Brothers has an outpost just six blocks from your Edgewater apartment. In business for nearly 100 years, Termini Brothers has an expansive selection of treats, from cookies and cupcakes to chocolate-covered peanuts and cannoli. Get a few of each or opt for the pre-packaged gift baskets, which you can use to impress a loved one or keep for yourself!

Nutbox: A half-mile from your Edgewater apartment, Nutbox is a haven for snack lovers. Chocolate-covered almonds, dried fruits and strawberries encased in dark chocolate are just a few of the wide selection at Nutbox. The shop embraces the old-fashioned candy store feel, with shelf after shelf of hand-packaged goodies

Teuscher Chocolates: If a trip to Switzerland for their famous chocolates is out of the question, head to Teuscher, about a mile from your Edgewater apartment. The Swiss chocolate company sells everything from truffles to bars, along with some specialties like chocolate-covered fruits and even liquor-infused chocolates.
