We finally had the chance to attend Candytopia, something I’ve been looking forward to doing all summer, and it definitely did not disappoint! In case you haven’t heard, Candytopia is an interactive art installation that travels to major cities displaying beautifully handmade exhibits completely made out of candy. To be honest, there are no words good enough to describe how beautiful the art is. I’m definitely not an art buff, but the exhibits actually had me in awe. I guess the fact that they made these beautiful pieces out of candy is completely mind-blowing for me. One piece that stood out to me was this beautiful portrait of Cardi-B:
They also had this one of Prince:
And of course Willy Wonka:
The tour starts off in a vintage-themed “clock room” with a tour guide who looks like he works in Willy Wonka’s factory.
I was kind of nervous at first because I knew that if we stayed in vintage-themed areas, Jaylin would not be entertained for too long. That thought didn’t last long because we immediately “traveled through time” into a bright and treat-filled area to wait for entry into the main art-candy room.
When we got to the ocean-themed room, Jaylin nearly lost his mind playing with the shark exhibit. Did I mention that every single thing is made out of candy?!
Naturally there were candy stations throughout the entire tour. I had to force myself to save some for later.
Next we entered the confetti-room. Unfortunately I was so lost in the moment I did not realize that the candy pigs were actually shooting confetti, but Jaylin did. He stood right in the middle of them, and of course this is what happened.
Could you imagine how much fun it was to take this out of his hair?! (Definitely no where near as much fun as Candytopia!)
To be honest, I couldn’t even be upset at the confetti because I already new we would be participating in the next attraction: The spinning Trolli wheel. At this point we were both covered in confetti.
I loved the illusions the rooms created. Like this one below:
The hit of the tour was the huge marshmallow pit. We had so much fun in there I couldn’t even get pictures!
Overall this was a great experience! It was so much fun to let loose and enjoy the moment as a child would. I encourage everyone to go. The tickets are super affordable and toddlers (3 and under) can attend for free. The exhibit closes it’s doors on 8/31/18 and tickets are selling out fast! Be sure to get yours ASAP!
