British chocolate is made from cocoa and cream. This makes it much richer than local chocolate.
We have individual treats for the curious or selective, larger packs for the committed fan and gift baskets for special occasions.
We also carry a range of British specials like marmite, chocolate spread, walker’s crisps (chips) and selection boxes.
We’ve won awards for our selection, combined with friendly and knowlegeable service. If you are new to our candy come try us out. Those that know us well need no invitation to return.
We open early every day - just when you need one of our Stumptown coffees to help you on your way.
We carry their full range, with specials too like Ethiopian nano challa, hairbender (it does) and holler mountain - by the cup and bag.
If coffee isn’t your tiple then try our selection of British imports like Ribena, Lucozade (English Gatorade) or Fanta.
When we do adult events we also like to indulge in some of the fizzy stuff - so don’t think your just stuck with soft drinks if you’d like something different for that special occasion.

The London Candy Company’s Jignesh “Jigs” Patel is part of an English sweet shop dynasty that stretches back over 30 years. The Patel family’s shop at Greenford Station, in London, was close enough to his strict prep school that 12-year old Jigs was able to smuggle coveted sweets into school while his friends dejectedly snacked on apples and milk. Seizing a business opportunity when he saw one, Jigs sold his goods for a profit and used the money to buy completed homework assignments.
Jigs initially planned to make his mark in the United States with a night-life venture. He had experience as a general manager of a Chelsea hot-spot, but his American friends’ incessant requests for English sweets inspired a different path. Why not transform his juvenile delinquency into a bustling New York City business?
The idea took shape in 2010. After scouring New York City’s neighborhoods for the ideal storefront, Patel decided on the shop at 1442 Lexington Avenue. The space, in a landmark building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, features a glass storefront, coffee bar, pastry case and space for children’s and cocktail parties.
The menu at The London Candy Company includes English classics like approved by-the-Queen Cadbury’s chocolates, and treats from Thornton’s, Nestle’s, Terry’s, Mars with Rowntree’s Wine Gums and boiled sweets round out the selection. Rich Cadbury hot chocolate, Horlicks malted milk drink, Stumptown Coffee, fresh pastries and cupcakes ensure that there is something for everyone.
The company’s logo was developed by Freddy Lopez and is play on the flag of the United Kingdom, the Union Jack.
The London Candy Company held its soft launch on April 2, 2011. The April 29 grand opening was designed to coincide with England’s royal wedding and launched what is now a thiriving staple for expats and locals alike.
