DYLAN’S CANDY BAR: UNWRAP YOUR SWEET LIFE
By Dylan Lauren
“To me, candy is more than an accessible everyday product we consume; candy is an artful masterpiece!” —Dylan Lauren
For anyone who has had the opportunity to experience Dylan’s Candy Bar, you know that simply entering one of these emporiums can awaken your inner child and make you feel, literally, “like a kid in a candy store.” In DYLAN’S CANDY BAR: Unwrap Your Sweet Life (Clarkson Potter; on sale October 5, 2010), Dylan Lauren elevates candy to more than just an everyday treat. With surprises on every page and stunning four-color, Pop Art–inspired photographs throughout, Dylan’s tribute to candy will encourage readers to discover the magic behind the seemingly familiar world of candy.
DYLAN’S CANDY BAR features mouthwatering candy recipes and inventive candy craft ideas that will appeal to the young at heart, the candy enthusiast, the fashionista, the Pop Art aficionado . . . and anyone interested in living the sweet life.

Sprinkled throughout with candy history, trivia, and fun facts, and organized by events and holidays—including birthdays, baby showers, weddings, Easter, Christmas, and Halloween—DYLAN’S CANDY BAR shows how to use classic candies that have been around for decades in innovative ways that will entertain and amaze. Dylan shares wonderfully creative ideas on how to pop the question with candy, host a chocolate-themed movie marathon for single friends on Valentine’s Day, and give birthstone-themed goody bags of candy at a birthday party!
Throughout Dylan’s life, candy has served as an inspiration, and her readers will be provided a peek inside her life through personal anecdotes, memories, and photos, all of which led her to create Dylan’s Candy Bar.

By 2001, she realized her childhood dream by opening her first candy store, which was inspired by Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Dylan Lauren and her “candy-centric” tips for living the sweet life are often featured in press across the country. She shares entertaining, decorating, and gift-giving ideas for holidays and other special occasions with her chic and colorful signature style.
