THINGS WE LOVE: DYLAN’S CANDY BAR

We here at Le Dolci love to discover new things especially while traveling to some of our favorite cities.  On a recent trip to the Big Apple, we visited any sugar addict’s dream world.  Welcome to …

This sugar haven is three floors of candy, gum, licorice, jelly beans, chocolate and more in any shape, form and flavour that you could imagine.  Our favorite discovery was the nostalgic section where you could find your favorite treats from your youth.  They even have a time capsule gift where you can fill your favourite candy from different decades.

Hunting through the different bins gave us plenty of inspiration for new ways to decorate our own creations back at Icing Sugar Towers!

What are some of your favorite things to satisfy your sweet tooth?
