All you need is one step inside of Dylan’s Candy Bar to know you’ve entered a whimsical candy wonderland — one that’s perfect for kids and that’s sure to bring out the kid in any adult. It’s no wonder that its founders pulled inspiration from the fictional story of Willy Wonka when creating the magical and colorful space that is Dylan’s, which houses more than 7,000 edible treats and candy-inspired lifestyle products. Although it first opened up shop in New York City, Dylan’s has expanded to other major cities like Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami. But its flagship, located on 1011 3rd Avenue is considered a favorite among New Yorkers and tourists, thanks to its pop-art installations on the ground floor and fudge and ice cream bar on the bottom floor.
