Papabubble opens up in NYC

My favorite candy store, Papabubble, just opened up an American branch in the great city of New York. In a way it’s a little bittersweet for me; I used to be able to bring this unique fun candy back from Barcelona whenever I went to share with my friends. Now all I have to do is go to 380 Broome St on my semi-weekly trip into the city. But oh well — I suppose I had to share at some point.

The fun thing about Papabubble is that they formulate, cast and prepare all of their candy in-house, in front of your eyes. It’s fun to watch them roll the huge cylinders of hard candy down to a fine bar, then methodically chop them into shorter pieces. In the end they collect the pieces into jars and bags of various sizes, ripe for sale to the salivating public.

Papabubble has several stores scattered across the world. From their headquarters in Barcelona (pictured above), they have now expanded into Amsterdam, Tokyo and of course, into New York. Give them a try next time you’re in the city.
