Stock Up on Halloween Candy at these Local Shops

The scariest day of the year is almost upon us. No, it’s not Tax Day—it’s Halloween!

You likely have fond memories of going door to door as a youngster amassing huge piles of candy that fueled a weeks-long sugar rush, but Halloween may have lost a bit of its luster as you’ve gotten older. However, who says adults can’t still enjoy Halloween by gorging on candy?

Right near your The Isle apartment are a number of candy shops that specialize in high-quality, handmade sweets. You may want to grab some for trick-or-treaters or, better yet, stock up for yourself, so you can re-create the magic of Halloween!

Here are a few of the sugary standouts:


Sugar Philly: What started out as a popular food truck has now set up shop right here in Manayunk just two blocks from your The Isle apartment. Sugar Philly specializes in high-end, gourmet sweet treats, including all things chocolate, macaroons, cakes and much more.

Z Candy Bar: Two miles from your The Isle apartment, Z Candy Bar gives you endless opportunities to satisfy your sweet tooth. The shop offers more than a dozen different varieties of treats, all in a simple, self-service option so you can walk away with exactly what you want. If you’re heading to a Halloween party and want to impress the host, stop first at Z Candy Bar, which offers a wide range of platters and trays, stocked with its most popular sweets.

Zipf’s Candies: This classic candy shop, five miles from your The Isle apartment, features case after case of handmade chocolates in every size and shape. The store is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, so stop in to wish Zipf’s a happy birthday and grab yourself a treat.
