Dylan’s Candy Bar was founded in 2001 by Dylan Lauren with a mission to awaken the creative spirit and inner child in everyone. Renowned for merging the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture with candy, Dylan’s Candy Bar is the pioneer in changing the way we see candy today. As the largest state-of-the-art sweets emporium and candy lifestyle brand, Dylan’s Candy Bar is not your average “candy store.” The modern day candy land is home to over 7,000 candies from around the world, making it the most popular destination for the ultimate sugar rush experience.

Dylan’s Candy Bar freestanding stores are currently located across major cosmopolitan cities in the U.S. as well as luxury boutiques in premier hotels, international airports, and leading department stores. Dylan’s Candy Bar plans to continue expanding its omnichannel presence across the U.S. and markets worldwide.
