Hey everyone – I have excellent, excellent news! One of Manhattan’s finest candy stores, which closed at some point last year, is now becoming an all-online business! The Elk Candy Company (one of the premiere makers of marzipan and other fine sweets) sent out the following e-mail a few days ago:
For those who haven’t seen our blog entry here is some good news. We are looking to open (online for now) in time for Thanksgiving. We’ll be preparing and gathering what we need over the summer.
It will be just Marzipan in the beginning and hopefully expanding the selection in early 2010 to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.
My Mom used to take my older brother and I to this candy shop when we were little kids living in Manhattan. We’d get marzipan and she’d get chocolate covered marzipan (I think they were called acorns). Absolutely delicious – better than any other marzipan that you’ll find anywhere. This was also the place to get your Advent calendars.
Treats from the Elk Candy Company compliment the perfect holiday gift. I encourage you to go online, bookmark their page, and check back frequently to see what the Elk Candy Company has to offer!
