Dylan's Candy Bar

Dylan's Candy Bar
1011 Third Ave
New York, NY 10021
(646) 735-0078

Yup, facebook and twitter too!

This wasn't planned! I mean, we were already stopping at every bakery we found, but a giant candy store? Three floors of sweets? Come on!

Dylan's Candy Bar is just full of... well, candy! There is candy everywhere! There are lots of novelty items, apparels, cosmetics, and sweet related merchandises of course. I managed to find a little section that had lots of cupcake things - earrings, candles, books, bags, and boxes.

The very neat thing about Dylan's is that everyone can leave with their favourite candy or make their own mixed selection. They have cute little pails, tins, boxes - basically anything that can be used to carry things. As for another neat feature, they have a display case showing celebrity picks! Here, we have the lovely Nigella Lawson. She seems to prefer black and white M&Ms. I love how each candy box is signed too!!

Hey! It's Buddy from Cakeboss! His favourite candies seem to be various sorts of gummies.

Now, if you continue to the top floor, Dylan's has a cafe and private party rooms (really, a fantastic place to hold a kid's birthday part).

I went up there because there was a sign saying "Cupcakes." They do sell cupcakes at the cafe! I checked the cupcake wrappers and it looks like Crumbs supplies them here. Mmmm, they have cold treats here too!

This was a nice quiet spot to relax. The rush on the main and bottom floors is overwhelming. There are lots of children filling their buckets with candy. Parents in awe of the amount of candy and in turn, chasing after their children. To add to the excitement, there was a giant chocolate fountain on the main floor too. For a price, you can pick an item and dip it in the fountain!

PS: I just found out that Dylan Lauren (the daughter of Ralph Lauren) also has a book coming out this year. Now, wouldn't her Candy Bar be the best place for a book launch? And from the looks of it, her father favours twizzlers!


  1. That's definitely a place me and my boyfriend would love to visit one day in the future even if its far away in New York and were in B.C,Canada. I love the ice cream cones,now I wish I was a kid again and went there lol.

  2. Ralph Lauren's daughter opened a candy bar? Now there's a drastic change!

  3. Wow! That place is incredible! I wonder how much money parents spend in there with their kids filling up bags of candy! That place is definately a feast for the eyes! Sooooo fun! If I was a celebrity, I would pick Swedish Fish to go in my autographed box! Yum!

  4. I was wondering how they got all those celebs to sign lolly cases - Contacts baby. But it is an amazing concept, three floors of lollies, squeee!

  5. LittleMissBaker, hello fellow Canadian! You don't have to be a kid again to enjoy the Candy Bar! ;)

    Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes], I know, but good for her!

    Bonnie, parents probably spend a lot. How do you say no to your kid who just customized their own candy box? I don't think I've tried Swedish Fish before... and good idea! I wonder what I would put in my celebrity candy box?

    Linda V @ Bubble and Sweet, contacts for sure and she's probably friends with some!

  6. My daughter just moved into an apartment right across the street - yep, now, that is dangerous!

  7. Anonymous, oy! I agree that would be very dangerous...
