My family with two girls 9 and 12 made a stop while in NY. They had three stories - 2 with all the candy you could want including a chocolate fountain and a third story with an ice cream bar. Place is what you would expect. I honestly thought it might be bigger but was still a great place to... More

My daughter had this as a must visit while in New York. She loved it to look around at all the different candy. It is colorful and multiple levels with an ice cream shop at the top. We walked away with some candy, but would be easy for kids to get carried away. Be prepared to spend your money and... More

CLEAN!!!! Don't be caught eating candy without paying or not using the scoop. They will throw the candy out and kick you out. Seen this happen 3 times and I was very happy about the outcome. The dark white chocolate swirl popcorn is so GOOD. I should have purchased more than one. Use Cash if you can, it seems as... More

3 o'clock in the afternoon and Serendipidy had a 2 hour waiting line with absolutely no waiting area. We decided to check out Dylan's instead and it did not disappoint. It's a candy heaven! Everything you can possibly imagine. They could have more lactose free and sugar free stuff, but at least they had some. They also have some pretty... More

Dylan's is a candy bar for all ages. Great options. It is a beautiful store, with wonderful friendly people who work there. My kids did not want to leave. The only thing that held things up, was they had issues with their credit card machine and had to call in anyone's information, who used a credit card. This made the... More

This shop is built for the kids and they "own" it. Try to time your visit to avoid them if possible--it was like a zoo during our visit, but we still managed to purchase way too much candy--but then again, can you ever have too much. The staff is terrific!

I have a sweet tooth in a big way so this store is for me! Loved the Brownie Batter and Marshmallow chocolate bars. 4 bars for $12. For me.....worth it. The store is very much in the spirit of Wonka! Fun shop!

If you have a sweet tooth, go here. The ground and lower floors have every kind of sweet you could wish for. The first floor has an eaterie. But then the best part of all is the cocktail bar. Imagine your favourite cocktails with the addition of sweets - popping candy, nerds, jelly fish - these drinks are awesome. And... More

The kids will love it, but it is expensive. For the adults, it isn't worth the trip. if you walk in with a child, expect to walk out with candy.

I know you can probably get the same candy elsewhere with lower of a price, but tell that to my kids! It's heaven for kids and that's what I like about it. Must see for kids
