Dylan’s Candy Bar

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, establishments like Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.

Dylan’s Candy Bar creates an unforgettable experience, combining childhood nostalgia with the latest in retail concepts and chic design. 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.

If that's not sweet enough for you, Dylan's Candy Bar now features award-winning Moomer's Homemade Premium Ice Cream, a tempting display of Mackinaw Island Fudge, a real cotton candy wagon, decadent specialty chocolates and novelties, take Dylan’s to a whole new level of “wow.”
