Dylans is great for many reasons. They have tons of new and old fashioned candy. They have a chocolate dipping station with marshmallows, pretzels, crackers, they charge you $2 an item but so worth it. The cupcake and chocolate section is amazing. The ice cream parlor upstairs is well worth the wait (which I am sure you will wait for... More

Expensive store-for what it is-Candy! Many of the candies can be found in our own community, but it was a neat place to visit. We arrived at 9:55 and found it was "closed for a private party" and would open at 10:30. We were let in around 10:40 to our surprise Tina Fey was in there filming and doing some... More

Best 'candy store' we came across in NYC and great for a few presents for people back home, as well as a few presents for yourself, oops! Quite expensive, but so are a lot of places in NYC. This was better priced than places like M&M world in times square!

The kind of store 10 year olds dream of. Good selection, cute concept. Beware of rampaging children.

Is it overpriced for what you get? Yes. So is FAO Schwartz. Heck, so is all of NYC. But if you want a unique interior, incredible selection, and fabulous NYC souvenirs, this is the place. Too bad Ralph Lauren's daughter has limited herself to building candy palaces! But fun, and worth a stop if you're by Bloomingdale's

If you love sweets you will love Dylans, so many sweets to choose from over three floors. We would say though that it can be a little on the pricey side but it was worth a trip just to see that many sweets. They also have a cafe bar on the top floor which serves all sorts of treats!

It's the best candy shop in the world in my opinion! There are thousands and thousands of different types of candies! A big baggie of candies of your choice costs even not that much! If you're a candy lover, this is your heaven.on earth

The shopping downstairs is awesome. So much candy to choose from. But the restaurant upstairs was awful. Didn't even sample the limited menu because the tables never got cleared. We sat at one table for over 20 minutes and no one ever came to clear the old dishes and wipe the spilled food up. The bathrooms (although obviously under construction)... More
