A must do with children when visiting NYC. Huge selection of yummy candy. If you can think of or crave it, they have it. Expensive but you're on vacation.

I do love this place!! I visited several of the stores! There is nothing sweet that you cannot find here! All candies are reachable for all age children so you do need to watch them closely before they stick their hands in the bins. I know this can't be changed but it does give one reason to pause before purchasing... More

What fun and I wish I could bottle the smell. We had a New York pass which meant we could fill a paint can for $13 instead of $16, what a challenge to cram as much in as possible. We were also entitled to 15% discount off other products including the cafe, which I would definitely recommend. The sundaes were... More

This place was fantastic. Do not miss this place, it was well worth the commute. My kids could have stayed there all day.

Themed nicely for current holidays. Priced a little high as expected. In a quieter section of Manhattan than Times Square candy destinations. Narrow aisles in some spots. Unique upstairs candy cocktail bar. Bright atmosphere and good selection. They sell souvenir apparel but sizes seemed very limited. Worth a visit.

Every visit to New York with our boys must include a stop to Dylan's. Their location isn't the most ideal so we usually need to take a taxi or subway to get there. This takes a good chunk of our vacation time but the kids are in heaven. They have 2 floors to collect their candy goods. The first floor... More

Great place to pick up gifts although a little expensive. The highlight was the top floor where you can have a candy cocktail, not for the faint hearted... gives you the boost to keep on shopping.
