At this Little Italy treat shop, kids can ogle more than swirled lollipops and tins of exotic hard candy. All day long, the friendly chefs behind the counter at Papabubble roll huge mounds of malleable confections into colorful patterned bands—some with a tasty strip of chocolate at their center—and cut them into bite-size pieces, a spectacle almost as delightful as the sugary snacks themselves.
