Plenty of bodegas stock U.K. imports like Twirls, HobNobs and Yorkies, but this West Village candy store is singular in its commitment to sourcing hard-to-find English sweets. The sugary bounty—arranged along wooden shelves and stuffed into black baskets—could set any British schoolboy’s heart racing. We bit into Crunchie bars, full of honeycomb-like toffee that shatters in your mouth, and picked up boxes of jelly-filled Jaffa Cakes to dunk into our tea. True British-confectionery geeks can get English-made Cadbury treats (creamier than the American ilk) and novelties such as Terry’s Chocolate Oranges, which break into segments just like the fruit. After plundering the goodies, sit by the floor-to-ceiling windows and sip a mug of malty Horlicks, frothed to perfection by a barista.
