Alison “Dewey” Oblonsky’s white-walled candy lair brims with old-fashioned charm, from the whimsical lollipop chandelier overhead to the barrels and jars of sweets reminiscent of a general store. Despite its small size, Dewey’s is well-stocked with childhood classics, such as Nerds, Pixy Stix and Bonomo’s Turkish Taffy, but Oblonsky has a brazen side, too. For Halloween, she goes all out with orange Pop Rocks, gummy candy corn and bags of “blood” filled with cherry juice. Little ones may never settle for mini Snickers bars again.
