Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! Today I have tons of photos to share with you guys from the premiere night for Candytopia in Atlanta. Candytopia is a pop up immersive candy experience that is traveling the country with special stops currently in Atlanta and coming to Mall of America in Minnesota in March.
If you are a candy lover, a kid at heart, or just love cool art. This is certainly a must! While I had seen photos and info on Candytopia, in person it was even more amazing than I could have imagined! There is tons of candy sculptures, candy wall art, and fun interactive zones that are sure to keep your senses going.
Each sculpture or art piece in Candytopia has a fun information sign that details products used, time, and even how many grams of sugar. The dragon sculpture was certainly one of the larger pieces, this guy was probably about 6 foot tall!
One of the first rooms you enter is a fun outdoor setting with a couple of swings, cool outdoor art, a little treehouse to explore, and so much more. Obviously, I would find the cat in Candytopia and had to have my picture taken with it. All of the art you are welcome to touch, they just ask you to not lick it! Hahaha!
The lighting in Candytopia is just amazing so there are tons of photo opportunities, along with photo stations set up with cool angle shots sent directly to your phone thanks to a handy unique user QR code. Since this was a press event and
Yes, I found Jackie Sorkin! She is the mastermind behind Candytopia and the Queen of Candy! She was super sweet and so welcoming to everyone. She will be in and out of Candytopia so you too may get to see her while attending!
The aquarium was certainly my favorite room. All of these pieces were huge and even a few awesome surprises I didn’t spoil with photos. I can’t show you everything! I really wanted to bring that stingray home with me!
The next room was all about the celebration of candy and color! As soon as you walk in you are showered with confetti….and yes, I am still digging out confetti from my purse! There was another really cool photo opp here but the line was insane so we will just call that another surprise for you. When you leave the confetti room you get to exit between some giant blown purple walls. You can’t see in front of you or behind you, you are just surrounded and hugged by the purple air balloons! It was so much fun we actually went through twice!
The last room was the one room I was most excited for at Candytopia! There is a giant marshmallow pit you can dive into! Now, these aren’t really marshmallows, just foam cut to look like and still cute without the stickiness. If diving isn’t your thing, there are also stairs leading into the pit but I must warn you….they are on the very backside and getting through the pit is a serious workout! I was feeling extra old by the time I got out but laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe. Seriously this night was the most fun out I have had in a VERY long time.
Last stop for Candytopia is the gift shop. If you didn’t get enough of a candy fix while touring the facility, you can stock up here on even more candy! There are also tons of cute merchandise items, I got a magnet with a unicorn pooping rainbows! In the gift shop is more cute sculptures covered in candy, like this giant Georgia peach.
While going through the exhibit I was so busy taking photos that I didn’t eat much candy but here is an idea of what you can expect to find. Each room you pass through has a giant treasure chest full of candy and depending on the candy you can take one or a few. The rainbow confetti room had some Trolli candy that I am now literally hooked on!
So what do you guys think of Candytopia? Honestly, I had so much fun I’m considering going back before they leave. And not only did I have a blast, but so did my date! I was a bit concerned a male wouldn’t have as much fun but he loved it. We both left grinning ear to ear. This would be an awesome date night, girls night out, or depending on family size, a great family outing. Tickets are $28 for adults and children 4 -12 are $20. Most of the Saturday and Sunday dates are sold out for the month of February so if you want to snag a weekend ticket, look into March and grab them quick!
If you would like to stay up to date on Candytopia and where they are headed next, you can sign up on their site or follow them on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
Thank you guys so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a wonderful and warm Sunday! I will see you all again soon! <3

The event I attended was a hosted event for press but that does not influence my opinions.
