Candy meets art in the new immersive candy exhibit, Candytopia, debuting in New York City.
The sweet art exhibit first premiered in Santa Monica earlier this year, attracting celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Christina Aguilera, James Corden, and Wiz Khalifa. Now, the sugary wonderland has opened in New York City, with New York-inspired candy creations, including a life-size taxi cab and portraits of New York rapper Cardi B and legendary singer Frank Sinatra made out of candy.
"Candytopia was really created for the people's happiness," co-creator Jackie Sorkin, of TLC's "The Candy Queen," told "Good Morning America." "We just wanted to bring light to the world. My whole world is all sweet candy and love and joy. So, it’s a tremendous dream to be living this experience and sharing it with everyone.”
At the exhibit, visitors journey from room to room collecting candy in every corner. From chocolates to gummies, Candytopia is designed to satisfy any sugar craving.
Candy portrait gallery
If you’re not in the mood for a sweet treat, the candy creations make for a sweet Instagram pic. There are many stops throughout Candytopia, but one of the favorites is the candy gallery. Portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Cardi B, and a fellow candyman Willy Wonka are created entirely from candy.
The Rainbow Confetti Room
The Rainbow Confetti Room is a must-see on your Candyland tour, complete with a confetti cannon, a unicorn made of candy, and even a pig that farts rainbow confetti. Yes, really.
Swim in the marshmallow pit
The real-life Marshmallow pit is another fan favorite where you can literally jump into a pit of pillows shaped like marshmallows. Cranking a special lever will make it rain marshmallows.
Candytopia, located at Penn Plaza in New York City, runs through Nov. 15, 2018. Tickets can be purchased in advance on Candytopia.com.
