We are all like kids in a candy store at Dylan’s Candy Bar. The store is a curated, candy emporium with literally thousands of confections and candy-themed merchandise. It is great fun having the flagship right here in NYC, and now this family-favorite destination is offering new and exciting activities monthly as well as their usual parties and signature events. 

There will be exciting candy activations like glitter tattoos, mad scientist shows, cookie decorating, special seasonal tastings, and more at these special activations and demos throughout the month. We spoke to their team to get the sweet scoop on what’s planned this fall for both free and ticketed events. Here’s what can give you a requisite sugar rush at Dylan’s Candy Bar!

Candy Tours

Everyone can enjoy an interactive Tour de Sweet of the NYC Third Avenue store. There’s also a new, free Mini Candy Sampling Tour every Tuesday and Thursday at 4 pm and 5 pm that lasts for 30 minutes. Visitors can just walk in and a tour guide answers candy questions, has samples, and concludes with a coupon to get terrific treats.
