Sweet Teez is a candy shop with treats both nostalgic (NECCO Wafers, $1.75; Sifer’s Valomilk $2.25) and new (a gravity bin wall has chocolates and hard candies at $10.80/lb). Oreos, pretzels, and gigantic marshmallows covered in white, milk, or dark chocolate are also offered. They can host private parties for up to fifteen children, offering activities like candy crafts and projects, cupcake decorating, and candy trivia. Candies can be custom-mixed for different events, and there are parties for adults like “parent’s night” with wine and gourmet chocolates and cheeses. All proceeds from Sweet Teez signature water bottles benefit the Food Pantry at the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force. Open seven days a week.

Best Candy Buffets (2011)
Everybody loves a trip to the candy shop—and Sweet Teez does one better by bringing the candy shop to you. For parties or other events, the shop can whip up a photo-shoot-worthy traveling candy buffet, with colorful M&Ms, Pumpkin Pretzels, and Sour Patch candies set up in jars, bowls, and stands of various sizes. The store’s staff then will keep a watchful eye as party guests fill their own goody bags, either to eat then and there or take home as favors. Guests love that they get to choose their favorite flavors, and you don’t have to worry about setup or cleanup.

What more could a child want than a birthday party in a candy store? This one-stop-shopping birthday party includes everything—pizza, drinks, crafts, and goodie bags. Sweet Teez has catered parties for kids as young as 3 and as old as 16. Some of the crafts include making sugar scrubs, candy bracelets, blending perfume, decorating cookies, and sugar art (boys particularly love the bugs and aliens).
