    Dylan's Candy Bar: Candy Heaven

    by TexasDave Updated Aug 27, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the neatest candy store, for adults, too. There are two stories filled with the most comprehensive assortment of Jelly Bellies, M & M's, Pez, all kinds of gummi candies, as well as a dessert cafe and ice cream bar.
    In 2008 a third floor was added and so it's now a 15,000 sq. ft candy store. They have also included an apparel section (One T-shirt says: "Stressed spelled backwards is Desserts"), and even a bath and body line (with items like Chocolate Cupcake Shower Gel and Strawberry Licorice Body Lotion).

    What to buy: Practically every kind of candy you can think of, even some you'd forgotten about!

    Dylan's Candy Bar: Sugar Overload!

    by Brehone Written Mar 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This store is a great place to stop for any kind of sweet treat! They have a whole wall designated just for Pez candy. Lots of treats for any type of sweet tooth. I also enjoyed this store because it's just up the street from Serendipity (another sweet place) and Bloomingdales.

    What to buy: Candy, Ice Cream---anything sweet!

    What to pay: It really depends on what you buy. Prices seemed pretty average to me.

    Dylan's Candy Bar: A Sugaraholic's Dream Come True

    by ForestqueenNYC Updated Aug 4, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sugaraholics, this is the place for you. Dylan's Candy Bar, co-owned by Ralph Lauren's daughter, Dylan (of course), is chock full of every kind of junk candy you can imagine. You know, the kind that you used to buy as a kid (and some of us still do)-- the penny candy stuff. Though there are lots of little penny candy stores in Manhattan with more reasonable prices, Dylan's is like the Times Square Toys R Us. It's really special and you have to go there at least one time. It's near Serendipity, but don't do both on the same day. That would be a real binge.

    Subway: 4, 5, 6, N, R to 59th St

    What to buy: Candy, hot chocolate, ice cream.

    What to pay: Depends on how much you buy, but it is more expensiive than the penny candy store on Lexington in the block above Bloomingdales.

    If you're looking for a particular type of candy, old or new, you can probably find it here. There is a LOT of candy here... even the steps have candy pieces in them (probably fake, but nonetheless...)

    What to buy: Bubble gum, chocolate bars, Pez, Jelly Belly's, the list goes on and on...

    Dylan's Candy Bar: Willy Wonka-esque Boutique

    by learn24x7 Written Jun 5, 2003

    This shop is for anyone who loves candy. (And, is the brainchild of Dylan Lauren -- Ralph Lauren's daughter.) Dylan's carries everything from fancy chocolates to pop rocks to Bazooka bubble gum. Be sure to visit the upper east side location where they also have an ice cream bar. They are open later (11pm) on Friday and Saturday nights.

    What to buy: This place has a fantastic selection of Jelly Belly jelly beans. You can make your own selection from the bins. My favorite flavor is BUTTERED POPCORN -- yum! I heard on TV that this is the most popular Jelly Belly flavor right now - so does that make me normal?

    I also purchased plain M&Ms. You can make your own rainbow selection from about 24-30 colors, including GRAY.

    The shop also carries many RETRO candies from the 50's to 80's (i.e., pop rocks, sugar babies).

    This is a nice place to purchase gifts to take home to friends. They sell many types of small containers with their logo and you can choose the candy content.

    What to pay: The M&Ms and Jelly Bellies are sort of pricey at about $9 per pound.
