Although it’s not quite like walking into a scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Dylan’s Candy Bar has a number of sweet treats and original creations that are sure to appeal to candy and chocolate lovers alike. The owner of the store is Dylan Lauren – yes “Lauren” as in Ralph Lauren’s daughter – and the store’s aesthetic is fashionably delicious. The original store is reportedly the “world’s largest sweets emporium” and is located 1011 Third Avenue. I decided to visit the special holiday pop-up store at 42nd and 6th Avenue. It’s not as big as I expected, but it wasn’t as crowded either and the whole focus is on the holidays, which is what I wanted. Since the pop-up store is only open until January 8, I may have to head over to the East side to visit the flagship store, too, which serves candy-inspired libations. Yum!
See You in the City!
The front of the pop-up store. From the outside, it looks like it takes up an entire city block, but the inside is much more compact.
