Dylan’s Candy Bar {Retro Chic}

This retro week has been quite fun- and has brought back some childhood memories to say the least. Let’s start off this (rainy, here at least) Thursday with some sweets (shocking for me, I know).

I haven’t made it much of a secret that I’m planning a dessert crawl across the city for my birthday in July- and seeing as how it’s my 30th, researching the best spots is of utmost importance. Obviously.. enter Dylan’s Candy Bar. Dylan’s is the mecca of all things sweet and their retro candy assortment is unrivaled..

If you are in NYC at any point in time- go there, just trust me and go. Have I ever lead you astray? If you aren’t in NYC they’ve got a crazy good website where you can order all kinds of awesome nonsense.

Not to mention their cafe upstairs with an ice cream bar and a, well, bar bar that comes stocked with candy cocktails. Let’s see how many times I can say candy in this post. 

It cannot be normal that I seriously want to rent out the entire place for the day… I’m half kidding in that I’m not actually kidding kidding kind of way. Do we think this would be acceptable for anyone over the age of 10? If you say no, we might not be able to be friends anymore.

Don’t worry- after all of this sugar overload this week we will be hopping on the fitness train next week. I’ve got a big photo shoot to prep for and unfortunately that doesn’t allow for much in the treats department. However, that is next week and this is this week… 

So this week we talk candy and sugar and everything that is amazing in this world. Do these photos bring back childhood memories for anyone else, what was your favorite candy as a kid?

We save salad for next week
