Super fun candy store on the Upper East Side. It's one of those places where you go even though your metabolism can't handle it because it's such an exciting and vivid flashback to your childhood. It is, however, a huge tourist trap and incredibly busy pretty often, so I advise well thought out visits and strategic planning around peak hours... More

This visit brought back so many memories of the different types of candy I enjoyed from my childhood, and from just last week. They literally have every candy ever made, it seemed like

6 of us ate here for lunch for one of our party's 7th birthday and we came away extremely underwhelmed. The service was poor from start to finish. The restaurant was quite empty, god knows what it would be like if it was full. We were left what seemed like an age to have our order taken and then had... More

OK selection, but nothing special. Two floors with candy (one small and one larger floor), third floor with bar, lunch, icecream options. Had reservation to eat at a later date which my kid asked me to cancel after visiting the store first time. OK for a one time visit with small children and just next door to Bloomingdales.

A huge candy store. Found it to be on the pricey side but a wide variety of candy themed goodies. The service was great and efficient.

If you have a sugar craving...this is the place for you! Diabetics beware! There is so much to choose from, you need at least an hour in this sweet retreat. Watch your wallet...this place is by weight and it is easy to fill an expensive bag. Aside from the candy, they have an amazing selection of cupcakes made by Melissa... More

Well, I took an out of town friend in here the other day because it is a "touristy"looking place. AND, I was pleasantly surprised! They have a very nice array of interesting candies presented in a very happy-looking environment. There is a counter with a fine offering of fudge. The fudge is tasty, fresh, creamy. I bought 1.5 lbs.i will... More

Really fun candy store and we loved the personalized items they offer. We picked out candy bars to bring home to friends with their names on the wrappers. Their signature chocolate bars are great, too. Lots of bulk candy to choose from, but that can get expensive, so we stuck to items we could only get at Dylan's.

Even with a 6 o'clock dinner resevation for 4 we had to wait more than 10 minutes for anyone to even talk to us. There was nobody at the entrance. Other groups came and pushed in front of us and staff could care less. Once seated we waited another 20 min for someone to take our order. After another 10... More
