Willy Wonka once invited us to hold our breath, make a wish and count to three and then join him in “a world of pure imagination.” His magnificent chocolate factory featured unbelievable sweets, a milk chocolate river and more to see, touch and taste than its guests could ever experience in a day—an amazing Technicolor candy world with no real world equivalent—until now
Who says candy is just for kids? Certainly not fashion legend Ralph Lauren’s daughter Dylan, who founded the New-York based flagship Dylan’s Candy Bar - a three story, 15,000-squre-foot shrine to sweet - in 2001. The wildly popular candy emporium now has branches in New York State, Florida, Texas, as well as satellite shops within high-end retail establishments across the United States.
Dylan’s Candy Bar creates an unforgettable experience, combining childhood nostalgia with the latest in retail concepts and chic design, artfully strung together like candy beads. For some, it’s a trip down memory lane: With “My Boy Lollipop” playing in the background. Peruse tables, shelves and bins brimming with perennial favorites likes Swedish Fish, Sour Patch Cherries, Jordan Almonds, Gummy Bears, Wax Lips, Mallo Cups, Coke Bottles, Pez... the list goes on.
The sister shop, Dylan’s Candy Bar-Candy Café, opened in June 2011, bringing the total square footage of Dylan’s Candy Bar to 2,800 square feet. Outfitted with gumball-topped tables and candy-cane stools and a real cotton candy wagon, everything about the sweet stop says fun. The Candy Café’s 14 flavors of homemade ice cream, (including exclusives like Red Velvet Cake and Coffee & Donuts), tempting display of fudge, decadent specialty chocolates, party items and novelties, take Dylan’s to a whole new level of “wow.” The café offers creative ways to celebrate baby showers, weddings and other occasions.
And yes, we do sell “Candy Land” - a super-sweet Dylan’s version, of course.
