Sweet Island Opens On Avenue U


Sweet Island, a bonafide candy store, is now open at 1214 Avenue U.

The owners told us they opened up shop about a month ago, and the place seems like a slightly Eastern European twist on the candy shops of my youth. They’ve got the staple candies, including collectible M&M dispensers and such, but they also carry some imported candies and Eastern European baked sweets.

They also have ice cream, milkshakes, cakes, coffee and regular, not sweet snacks.

It replaces IMJ Kosher Market.

Good luck, Sweet Island!

    I never dreamed that I would climb over the moon in ecstasy,

    But nevertheless it’s there that I’m shortly about to be

    Cause I’ve got a golden ticket

    I’ve got a golden chance to make my way

    And with the golden ticket it’s a golden day.

    Always laugh to see grammatical errors on these expensive signs… I guess turning “Beverage” into “Beverages” would have cost too much? (Unless, they only sell one and only one beverage?)

    Should do great. Chinese people have the biggest sweet tooth that I ever seen. Much different than from years ago.
