Village Voice's Description

Warning: Knowledge of this store may be hazardous to your teeth. Opened in January by candy aficionado Alison "Dewey" Oblonsky, Dewey's stocks tons of great retro candies (remember Mallo Cups, Ferrara Pan's Atomic Fireballs, and Sky Bars?) as well as plenty of cool contemporary treats for the kids, such as candy tins that look like Wii controllers and the popular Grillz, a sucker attached to the back of gold teeth. Beneath a chandelier of whirly pops tied with colorful ribbons, you can dig through wooden barrels and gleaming glass jars of goodies of Mary Janes, multicolored jawbreakers, and every color of M&M. Chocoholics must go straight to the back for the Oreos and cake-batter balls coated in milk chocolate. Gift options include decorative flowerpots, pretty boxes, and silver buckets that can be stuffed with the candy of your choice (an excellent party favor is the "Dewey-tini," a martini glass of sweets for $10). Gummy fiends will love the huge variety that includes everything from gummy teeth to gummy sharks to something called a "Gummi Mexican Dinner," with a teeny chewy chili con carne (yum). Did we mention that Dewey's may also be hazardous to your waistline?

    Allison is awesome, and if she doesn't have a certain candy, she'll try her hardest to get it for you.
