notable shopcoin Philip's Candy of Coney Island truffles/bon bons made in nyc
John Dorman--one of the oldest candy makers in New York--has been making candies continously since 1947 at Coney Island Stillwell Avenue later moving to Staten Island early 2003 after being forced to close due to Subway construction early 2001.

Philip's features old-fashioned candies at old-fashioned prices. Expertly made peanut brittle, candied apples ($1.95), hand-dipped chocolates ($1.95+ quarter pound), maple walnut fudge ($0.95 quarter pound), cotton candy, caramel popcorn, and so much more. Mr. Dorman's gigantic lolipops, and salt water taffy are no longer made as the equipment used to make it was "lost" [stolen] during the move from Coney Island. But, one day, hopefully soon, they will be offered once again.... updated 2003-10-31. philips candy phillips candy phillip's candy
