COVID-19 UPDATE: ALL STORES IN LOS ANGELES ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
If Willy Wonka opened his own store, it would be Sweet! No really. Located on the second level of the Hollywood and Highland complex, this is a candy store on steroids.
There’s a big Nestle Crunch bar on the floor that crackles when you walk on it. (You don’t have to be a kid to delight in that!)
Have you ever wanted to see a portrait of Benedict Cumberbatch made from jelly beans? Here’s your chance! RuPaul’s Drag Race offers not only candy but a chance to see some amazing dresses; Route 66 provides the history of candy in America; and they have all the Tokidoki merchandise you could ever want.
Don’t miss ‘Sticky’ where you can watch artisans layer molten candy into a long rope that, when cut, reveals the design or message. Or how about the ‘Chocolate Lab’ – where kids (and grown-ups) can build their own customized chocolate bar with a wide variety of additions.
Elvira gets an entire Boo-tique to herself, containing sweets, merchandise, and memorabilia, including the Macabre Mobile, a tricked-or-treated-out 1950s Ford Thunderbird with custom faux-leopard interior and skeletons in the trunk. For a mere $1500 (down from $2000), you can be the proud owner of an original portrait of the Mistress of the Dark made entirely of Halloween candy.
Want a selfie? You can take one standing on a ‘Hollywood sidewalk star’, holding an Oscar!
