When I was a little kid and my family lived in Manhattan, every once in a while we would go to the Elk Candy Company on the Upper East Side (where we lived) to get the best marzipan on the planet. My Mom would take us there throughout the year and we’d get all different types of marzipan and Christmas goodies when the holidays came around. Later, when I was in college, I made a few visits to the candy store to pick up some marzipan gifts for my family.
Unfortunately, due to the financial downturn, the Elk Candy Company closed their doors a few years ago. However, after an outcry from long-time customers (myself included), the Elk Candy Company has decided to open up an online shop – which is now open and ready for business! Take a look at the e-mail below, which I received about a week and a half ago:
Many people have been looking forward to this day and now, we take great pride in announcing Elk Candy Company is now open and ready for your marzipan orders at www.elkcandy.com. We are proud to be able to share our world class marzipan with you.

Those of you who were familiar with the store will remember our complimentary gift wrapping, we will continue to offer free gift wrapping to our online customers. We ask that if you would like your purchase gift wrapped please state so in the special instructions portion during the checkout process,.
