Good luck getting budding Anglophiles to leave this Upper East Side candy mecca, a shrine to the not-typically-seen sweets savored by boys and girls across the pond. Not surprisingly, candy giant Cadbury has a starring role among the well-known United Kingdom imports—Tootsie Roll hankerings need to be indulged elsewhere—but you’ll also stumble upon novelties. Strands of strawberry-flavored Loopy Laces, squishy Jelly Babies, and cocoa cream–filled Happy Hippo biscuits, for example, may leave curious kids clamoring for a trip to Buckingham Palace instead of Disney World.
