Flying is so draining nowadays: the lines, the delays, the cramped seats and antiseptic atmosphere. But there’s one literally sweet spot, in the middle of LaGuardia Airport. The SGR boutique, in Delta's Terminal C, is adorned with what looks like a giant striped Life Saver and filled with all sorts of comfort candies and sweets, many of them in handy bite-size servings (perfect for slipping into that carry-on). We’re not talking Hershey’s here, but artisanal bon bons, handmade marshmallows, chocolates that come from France or via Venezuela—filled with strawberry champagne, or potato chips, or bacon bits. But wait, there’s more. Candy-themed bath and beauty products (think: a bath bomb “lollipop” on a stick), bubblegum-colored T-shirts, fun jewelry. It’s enough to make even the most white-knuckled flyer as happy as a kid in a candy store.
