Dylan’s Candy Bar – Upper East Side, New York

Posted on: Friday 30 September 2011

Halloween isn’t observed in Australia. It’s considered an American tradition but some neighourhoods do celebrate it. A couple of houses near our home in Sydney decorated their front yards with fake cobwebs and glow in the dark skeletons. Children in costumes were chaperoned by parents to go trick-or-treating.

A visit to Dylan’s Candy Bar is like trick-or-treating for adults. Sweetness perfumes the air and rainbow coloured candy tempt you on every floor.

Decals cover the windows to promote The Smurfs film and there was a section dedicated to themed merchandise.

The centrepiece of the store is rows of clear containers of candy sold by weight, to be scooped into plastic bags or glass jars. Candy of every shape and flavour entices and I purchased half a scoop of sour cola bottles, my childhood favourite.

A chocolate fountain is by the entrance and dipper choices included Graham crackers, marshmallows, pretzels and fruits.

I skipped the upstairs Candy Café and walked down the ‘stairway to candy heaven’.

A kaleidoscope of Jelly Belly dispensers.

A collection of retro candy.

‘I want candy…’

Shelves of Hershey’s products.

I was delighted to find purple M&M’S!

Inedible candy paraphernalia.

Sweet Paws for your pets!

I would like to know how parents stop their children exiting with a sugar high from Dylan’s Candy Bar!
