Williams Candy (Brooklyn, New York)
***** Williams Candy.
See this joint…it’s right next door to Nathan’s Famous- in Coney Island.
Williams Candy has been in business for over 75 years.
Jeff Eats has been a customer for 61 of those 75 years. Now for sure, my 22 year South Florida residency has hindered my consumption…that said, at least once a year for the past 22 years- I’ve either been to the store, or had stuff “delivered” to me down here in South Florida…so I know, that Williams’ candy apples are amazing, same for its caramel corn, same for its marshmallow balls and sticks.
You want great stuff…just call the number on Williams’ sign- place your order-and Williams will ship-to-you! By the way, the sign and awning aren’t “originals”- 61 years ago Williams didn’t “do” ice cream and the-“thought” of an ATM was something right out of a Buck Roger’s comic book!
You can check Williams’ stuff out at candytreats.com
Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you…off the chart-good! Just watch those front teeth- when you bite into those apples.
Now let me get to this package that I just got!
I know this place well.
I grew up in Brooklyn in the 60s and have been to that Nathan’s and Williams numerous times. Williams jelly apples and caramel corn are amazing.
There use to be a scooter car ride right next door to Williams. Is it still there?
I didn’t recall the name, but years ago as a kid I use to stop in there after riding the scooter cars on the days we cut school.
Was there just last week.
Showing my kids where I was raised.
Had a candy apple and some caramel corn.
