Ricky's NYC Sat, 11/25/06 11:07 PM (permalink)
Has anybody been to Ricky's before? It's a chain of beauty supply stores/costume shops in NYC. I walked in to the one on 13th street tonight and at the front counter was a combo box of assorted chocolate bars. In it were: Twin Bing, Big Cherry, Mallo Cup, Rocky Road, Goo Goo Cluster, Sky Bar, Clark Bar, Maple Bun, and various other bars that I can't remember. I think the box was $25.00 and it looks like I might have to get it. I'm just hoping that the chocolate isn't stale.

    Love Ricky's - or at least I used to before they started opening branches all over. Like the Starbucks of beauty?? I loved their funky Halloween gear, their boots/sandals, soaps and candles (sort of rhymes. no?) I never bought any snacks (I didn't even know they carried any). Are they outside on NYC?

      Sounds like the box is the Big Tips Candy Collection:

      They carry most of those bars as singles at Economy Candy down on Rivington Street (LES).

          I just saw more of the Big Tips boxes for $19.99 on sale at the Bed Bath and Beyond on 6th Avenue and 18th street in Manhattan.
