Parkside Candy

3208 Main Street, Buffalo, NY - (716) 833-7540

Wooden tables and chairs allow customers to contemplate the fine gastronomic artistry of their creamsicle frappes, root beer floats, and maple nut sundaes.

Known elsewhere as 'fairy food,' sponge candy is a specialty of Buffalo confectionaries. It is chocolate surronding spun sugar that quite literally melts on the tongue. (buffetbuster photo)

We are forever amazed that Parkside Candy still exists. It is such an old-fashioned place in so many (very good) ways. (buffetbuster photo)
