Shopping, Chocolate and candy West Village

Here the selection of Scandinavian treats is dizzying—more than 140 different kinds fill the bins lining the walls. Kids will delight at filling their own bag of brightly colored candies, from sour octopi (sura blackfiskar) to salty licorice tigers (salta tiger huvud). And you can feel good about the fact that all of Sockerbit's sweets are free of trans fats and artificial colorings. FYI: sockerbit means "sugar cube" in Swedish. The storefront also carries pantry items (Swedish meatball mix, crisp bread and cloudberry jam) and designer ceramics.
