^^My go-to bulk candy mix I created, including sour gummy cherries, mint chocolate cookie bites, chocolate-covered Swedish fish, pink gummy fish, sour gummy stars, OMG’s (chocolate-covered graham cracker), and sour cherry bites!
Those of you who don’t know me probably don’t know how much I love Dylan’s Candy Bar. I first visited Dylan’s Candy Bar when I went to New York as a 16th birthday surprise. That was when I fell in love. Dylan’s Candy Bar is the BIGGEST candy store in the world with a selection of over 7,000 different candies. Dylan Lauren (daughter of Ralph Lauren) opened the first store in 2001. One of the things I love most about the candy store is how candy becomes a form of art and creates a magical experience for kids and adults when they visit the store. I don’t know how anyone would not LOVE it!
Many people know that when I was attending BYU, I completed a summer internship with Dylan’s Candy Bar. I was studying marketing and thinking about where my dream place to intern would be and Dylan’s Candy Bar obviously came to mind. Somehow I happened to get the online marketing internship, moved to New York City for the summer and had the time of my life. Not only did I get some great experience in the e-commerce and candy industry, but had the nicest manager and interned along with people I am still friends with today. It was the best. And of course, it involved eating candy 24/7. Dylan herself even complimented me on my neon pink pants one day.
This past weekend, I took a trip out to NYC to visit a friend and visit Dylan’s Candy Bar for the first time since interning there! If you haven’t been, it is a must-do while in New York. The Color Your World section is my FAVORITE! Candy in all colors of the rainbow perfectly lined up. They pretty much have any candy imaginable. I loaded up my bulk bag with my favorites, including sour cherry bites, chocolate-covered Swedish fish, mint cookie bites, sour cherry gummies, sour stars, OMG’s (chocolate-covered graham crackers) and pink gummy fish. They are all SO dang good! I also love all of these fillables – they make the perfect gifts!
Ok, sorry for going on and on about this place but it truly is my favorite and will always hold a special place in my heart. Feel free to message me for any more information about Dylan’s Candy Bar or tips on visiting NYC!
