Kids love candy (and so do their parents). Though we usually try to keep candy to a minimum, we know it's fun to indulge in sinfully delightful sweets. And if you're going to indulge, might as well make an experience out of it. While little ones may be content with a packaged treat in the checkout aisle, why not go big at one of Westchester's local sweet shops?
We've mentioned several of Westchester's awesome ice cream shops, however, maybe a good old fashioned candy shop is more your speed. If you're looking for a candy fix while you're out and about checking out the fun family events in Westchester, be sure to check out one of these local sweet shops that go above and beyond to satisfy any sweet tooth!
