Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This impossibly bright Willy Wonka wonderland, a block from the boardwalk, looks like Katy Perry exploded in the middle of Coney Island—a preteenage dream of sun-kissed kids hightailing it across sparkly garnet floors toward giant Tootsie Pops. Along with oversize novelty sweets, candy like apple sour belts, caramel creams and saltwater taffy is dispensed from shiny bulk bins, available to-go in colorful Chinese takeout containers. Kiosks are packed with retro candies like Mallo Cups, Cow Tales and Bit-O-Honeys, the kind of treats that would have satisfied sweets-lovers during the seaside ’hood’s early-1900s heyday.
