While some may say that its cheap chocolate isn't as good as our cheap chocolate, Britain certainly has the edge where the names of its cheap chocolate are concerned. Who wouldn't want to buy something called a Percy Pig, Curly Wurly, or Aero? Or a Malteaser, or a Crunchie?

The London Candy Company is betting that New York will: Per City Biz Real Estate, the U.K.-based company has just leased a 1,100-square-foot storefront at Lexington Avenue and East 94th Street. It will sell both British confectionery and -- no, really? -- cupcakes. No word yet on when it will open, but dentists across the Upper East Side are no doubt rubbing their hands together in gleeful anticipation.

While you gleefully wait in anticipation for this store's opening, I who live directly above the store dread its opening. It is another example of a business'; disregard for its affect upon others. My understanding is that this store will have a coffee bar and that the ceiling beams are being left exposed. I am worried that the coffee smells will make my studio apartment which I can afford and have lived in for over thirty years uninhabitable.

Sounds like a great idea, I'm sure the Americans will love to have a browse through a purely British store. At least the chocolates and the cupcakes won't be taking any local business away from any Birmingham restaurants. If there was a store like that here though, it would make for a great stop off for some dessert treats.

Well you could have a chinese restaurant below you. You should count yourself lucky. Besides, that space has been left vacant for a while now. I'm happy that there is finally something going in there. Keep it coming!!

My wife and I popped into the new store twice last week.  We loved it!  The coffee was fabulous, far better than what you can get at the Starbuck's a block over, the candy was fun to look at, and eat, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and warm.  I think it makes a wonderful addition to the neighborhood.
