Welcome to our blog!
See what's brewing!
It is now tradition to take a sweet adventure every year.
It all began in 2016 when the Ice Cream Museum came into town. The next year we went to a chocolate museum and when Candytopia came about- we bought tickets immediately! So here's what we thought!

If you like sweet treats, bright colors & confetti- then Candytopia is a place you need to visit. It all begins a little weird- in a dark room with an actor running around yelling things. Although, you can't fully understand what he's saying so I honestly had no idea what was going on. But after a few minutes you enter a new room with bright colors, loud music and people running around everywhere!
Now, when I re-read my pros & cons for the ice cream museum, the one con I had revolved around it being a guided tour. Interestingly enough, having Candytopia not be a guided tour was probably one thing I didn't like. Here's why.
At the Ice Cream Museum, your groups that you were with were small- maybe 10 people or so. So even though you only spent a certain chunk of time in every room, it was a small enough group that you got to see & explore every bit of that area. At Candytopia- the group you were with was a MUCH larger group and you can explore at your own leisure. With so many people & kids running around, you couldn't always necessarily do what you wanted to do or look at something as long as you'd like. We ended up staying in Candytopia for the same amount of the Ice Cream Museum so that all evened out.
When they finally open the doors to Candytopia, you're just thrown into all the rainbows, confetti & candy you can imagine! There's artwork made of candy, statues made of candy, trees made of candy- pretty much everything was made of candy!
You were free to roam about each room & each room had a different theme which made it super fun! One room was filled with candy portraits, another took you under the sea & another let you play with unicorns and confetti. They had great photo opportunities & their staff were all super nice while taking pictures!
And yes- there was even candy to eat! Each room had a chest of candy for you to snack on! Between taffy, tootsie pops, pixie sticks, air heads, candy bracelets & more- your sweet tooth was happy!
To wrap up the day, we entered the marshmallow pool! No- they are not real! I made the mistake of jumping into it at one side while my friends were on the opposite side because it required a lot of leg work to get through those marshmallows! You only had 5 minutes in the pool (this was the only time restricted piece of the exhibit) so you had to make it count! We got a lot of fun pictures & boomerangs so we were very happy!
I would recommend this if you can snag a ticket! It's very kid friendly & there were a ton of kids there. We had a great time exploring and playing with confetti! It was a fun thing to be a part of! So if it makes it's way to your town- go have fun!
