DYLAN’S CANDY BAR NEW YORK
At Dylan’s Candy Bar NYC, the first thing you see when you walk in is rows and rows of candy in clear plastic pick-n-mix containers.
This is a blast from the past, with lots of candy from your childhood that you haven’t seen in years.
Be prepared to spend a while searching the pick and mix stands at this nostalgic candy store.
Pick up one of the Dylan’s Candy Store containers, and begin to fill it up.
You pay for the weight of candy and assorted confections you choose, so don’t go too overboard at this candy buffet just yet.
There’s LOTS more to see!
But let’s face it. You are never going to leave here without a tonne of candy in tow.
The kids will not let you walk out of this place without a purchase, so fill your wallet and have that credit card handy.

Memorabilia at Dylans Candy Bar New York
On one wall, there’s a timeline showcasing the evolution of candy.
Did you know that Hershey’s invented the Chocolate Kiss in 1907?
It was named the Kiss because the machine that made them looked like it was kissing the conveyor belt they were made on!
Or that the Life Saver (named after it’s ring shape) was first introduced in it’s signature peppermint flavour.
22 years later, the fruit flavours were on the shelves for the first time.
Jelly Belly Gourmet Jelly Beans at Dylans Candy Store New York
There’s a WALL full of different flavoured Jelly Belly jelly beans too.
