In this, the lull between two of the three most sugar-fueled of holidays, Valentine’s Day and Easter (Halloween, of course completes the trifecta) we bring you glad tidings of the sweetest sort. A Museum of Candy is opening in New York City. No, you’re not having glucose hallucinations, it’s true. The brain child of the people behind the Sugar Factory, the 30,000 square foot combination museum, dessert marketplace, full service restaurant and outdoor café will open in the Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan this summer.
Featuring a display of the evolution of candy, candy making demonstrations and DIY candy stations, candy-themed experiential rooms, interactive installations, edible artwork (including a unicorn and the largest gummy bears on Earth), and lots and lots of sugar, the museum promises to be even more Insta-worthy than even the most decadent of Sugar Factory drinks and desserts.
And once you’re finished walking through displays of sugar, you can settle in for…more desserts. The dessert marketplace will feature a roster of sweet treats and we’re sure there will be an extensive selection of delicousness on the restaurant and café menus. Still not done? Visit the museum shop for supplies so you can make DIY desserts at home.
