Living in New York City, it’s easy to get spoiled by easy access to foods from all over the world, acquirable right outside one’s door at any hour of the day. But sometimes it’s more exciting to have to wait for holiday foods that only come around once a year.

We swung by Economy Candy the other day and were kvelling over the fact that macaroon season was in full swing. We’re not talking about the fancy French macarons (though we never have a problem with those, either). In this case, we’re referring to the old-school coconut Passover macaroons – the ones many of us grew up on.

Economy Candy is now stocking the macaroons in plain and chocolate, along with dark chocolate covered options, too.

For those of you who are making a special trip over there, make sure to get a little extra. You know you are going to eat half of the bag before you get to bring them to your seder this year.

And for other Passover food news, remember to revisit our tour of the Streit’s matzo factory.

Tuesday night’s Town Hall on Open Restaurants and Open Streets, hosted by Community Boards 3 and 6 – left residents with more questions than answers regarding the long-term impact these pandemic-era health and economic neighborhood solutions have on a post-COVID city.
