Candy stores on LI?
Looking for a good candy shop on Long Island, south/central--by that, I mean starting along the Nassau/Suffolk border and middle island/south shore. Will venture further north and east/west, but that's the area I'd like to focus on. Patchogue and Great Neck, e.g., are too far.
Not looking for a chocolatier, or a convenience store with with racks of bars. Thinking more like the candy shop ("The Candy Man" song) in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory--the original, that is.
I've been to Dylan's Candy Bar and that doesn't really do it for me.

Wonderful old-fashioned candy store.
I just remembered St James General Store, haven't been there lately but talk about old fashioned!
A great candy store. they have all the retro candy and also all the fun new novelty candy. HUGE selection of sours and gummies too!!!! My favorite is the chocolate potato chips
