Who doesn't love sponge candy if you're from Buffalo? It's right there with wings, beef on weck, loganberry, and pastry hearts for Buffalo staples (and yes, candy can be a staple in my book).

You could literally go two dozen places deep in Western New York for sponge candy stops but these are seven of the best places to stop for the delectable sweet:

1) Antoinette's (Depew)

Located at 5891 Transit Road, Depew, Antionette's has arguably the best sponge candy in Buffalo. What I love most about their sponge candy is the thicker layer of stellar chocolate on top, which helps preserve the honeycomb interior from getting stale. It tastes amazing!

2) Fowler's (Amherst)

Fowler's is one of the most popular chocolate makers in Buffalo and I grew up a stone's throw away from their Amherst location on Niagara Falls Blvd. Their sponge candy, like the rest of their candy, pasts the taste test and is a great gift during the holidays.

3) Alethea's (Williamsville)

This I still believe to be underrated, even though north towners know how great they are. Located at 8301 Main Street in Williamsville, Alethea's hosts some of the most out of the world sponge candy in the business. The chocolate coating the sponge is so good!! Their store also has an ice cream parlor and looks like you're stepping back in time with the decor.

4) Ko-Ed Candies (South Buffalo)

South Buffalo's very own Ko-Ed Candies has some great sponge candy. Their nestles away at 285 Abbott Road in South Buffalo and host an array of other candies. They love celebrating every holiday with candy for the occasion.

5) Wahl's Candies (Cheektowaga)

This place is always packed by locals around Losson Road and Union. Located at 130 Losson Road in Cheektowaga, Wahl's is among the most underrated candy places in Western New York. The sponge candy is to die for.

6) Watson's (Buffalo)

Another popular choice for sponge candy and rightfully so; Watson's located at 738 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo is among the best sponge candy in town. They have other locations in Western New York as well, What's great is they can hand-package your sponge candy and ship it anywhere.

7) Parkside Candy (Buffalo)

Another place that has many stops but the store at 3208 Main Street in Buffalo is where I used to go. Parkside sponge candy is renowned across Buffalo and it's easily one of the first places you imagine for sponge candy.
