Halloween Round-up: Pumpkin Pie Fudge Lollipop from The Sweet Life, NYC

I visited The Sweet Life candy shop on the Lower East Side in NYC last week and was astounded by their vast selection of candies from around the world as well as their own home-made (and reasonably priced!) offerings. Their motto: "anything can be dipped in chocolate." Wise words, indeed. It's incredible how much they can pack in that little store! I'll be reviewing a few more of my purchases in upcoming posts, but wanted to slip in my recommendation for the shop's unique and decadent Pumpkin Pie Fudge Lollipop before the Halloween holiday passes us by. This fudge was the perfect texture. It's firm but instantly dissolves on the tongue. The flavor is unlike any other fudge I've sampled- it really tastes like pumpkin pie, with all of the spices and butter that goes into the ideal holiday treat. And let me assure you, the consistency of fudge works beautifully with the flavor of pumpkin pie. In fact, I'd choose this fudge over the real thing any day. You can consume the fudge in lollipop form or by the slab, but I believe that the lollipop offers the perfect two-bite size. If you find yourself on the Lower East Side, definitely check out this shop. Click here to check out their website.
