It’s Sugar, the candy emporium on Broadway, near Soho, had this fun slogan in its window when I passed it a week or so ago.
Dylan’s Candy Bar is a national chain of high-end designer candy emporiums conceived by Ralph Lauren’s daughter, Dylan. With maybe a dozen stores scattered between New York and Los Angeles, the brand’s flagship store on Lexington Avenue merges the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture with candy so successfully, it is like Willy Wonka exploded in your face.
A stand out feature the Lexington Avenue location is the Candy Embedded Staircase that connects the main floor with the basement level. These are the kind of details you can add to a retail space design when money is no object.
My teeth hurt just looking at these photos of Lucite stairs studded with Gummy Candy, Lollipops, Swedish Fish and Candy Corn.
Look out for the sharks!
Going Up, Going Down.
This adorable tin shaped like a Minion holding one of their dreaded Fart Guns is actually filled with tiny Cocoa Flavored, Cloud-Shaped Candies.
This is what the candy looks like: little chocolate farts. Tasty!

This fantastic portrait of Darth Vader holding a Light Saber was created entirely from Jelly Belly candies! Yummy! I wonder how long it took to create. Photographed by me at the Jelly Belly exhibitor booth during the Summer Fancy Food Show 2015 at the Javits Center in Manhattan.
We are guessing that the Sizzling Bacon Candy that “explodes in your mouth” is essentially bacon flavored pop rocks. It might taste like ass, but we still want to try it.
Available for just $4 for two (2) packs (what a bargain!) from Urban Outfitters stores and online at This Link!
