I walked in and out in the space of about two minutes, as the first thing I picked up - a small box of candy - cost 50.00.

Whoever put only one dollar sign at the top of this article - indicating an inexpensive establishment - has a different idea than I do of the value of things.

I took a quick look at a couple of other items and their prices and left as fast as I could go.

I'm horrified that there are people out there willing to spend this much on what amounts to packaging.

People, there are better places to get candy, and if you want to spend the rent on it there are 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚 better places to get actually gourmet sweets.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOOOOVE dylan's candy bar. It's any child's dream come true. Candy on candy on candy. Candy everywhere. I could easily spend so much money here, but often restrain myself and opt for buying candy by the pound. Variety, and control of quantity. The space looks fun and colorful and oh so cute. There's three floors of it so my first time here, I definitely took a while to take it all in. The first floor has gourmet chocolate, candy by the pound, personalized candies, retro candies, and toys. The main floor where the entrance is mainly has candy and chocolate by the pound with a few other goodies. The top floor is a restaurant that does savory as well as sweet desserts. I'm interested in trying the restaurant but cant help but go for all the candy when I'm there. If you're craving something sweet and unique, this is the place to get it.

What a fun place and a throwback to my youth. Tons of options on 3 floors of sweetness. The colors are impressive and sets up some good photo ops. You really want to leave the store with a little bit of everything, and you're bound to find it here. Their celebrity candy wall is quite impressive and a fun way to share the love of sweets. There are also some imported options from across the globe that makes it fun to try. If you also listen carefully, the song selections are also all related to candy, sweetness, sugar, or sometime similar. If you're going with kids, you should set a boundary with them before entering or they could go crazy! 


Flagship candy store on third avenue. The main floor is typically seasonally decorated and has a comprehensive selection of most sugary snacks, generic and brand name. The upstairs has a restaurant and bar that serve shockingly sweet cocktails, and a selection of non-candy food. The downstairs has a selection of niche, old-school, and rare candy, as well as a wall of celebrity candy picks. Overall, the staff is friendly and helpful, the store, and candy bar are bright and clean, and the candy is fresh, delicious and overpriced. Worth a trip for the candy connoisseur.


The Dylan's Candy Bar on the Upper East Side, is the flagship store. There are three floors of sweet candy heaven and really if you can't find it here, then it doesn't exist.  You can cure your past ten sweet cravings all at once with the amazing selection of gummy candy, jelly beans, chocolates, lollipops, chewing gum, and much, much, more. There is a cafe as well with real food like warm spinach and artichoke dip, nachos, and flatbreads. It is not just fun for the little ones, there are delicious  alcoholic drinks to enjoy as well.  They do private parties too for a variety of special occasions.
