Candy shop is a special land; a kind of a place that turns grown-ups into kids and makes kids go crazy. CuRious Candy is exactly like that and it’s also nothing short of a beautiful work of art. Designed by Cynthia Rowley it is reminiscent of her clothing and beauty articles: trendy and unusual, with a little bit of a dark fairy tale thrown in for good measure.
Tucked in a little out of the way in Rowley’s Upper East Side flagship store, the candy shop is a beautifully decorated space filled with all kinds of candy. Willie Wonka and Alice in the Wonderland come to mind. Just about everything you see is edible, from toys to glitter. While there is a lot of unusual candy, there are classics as well.
This is an incredible place for kids, but that is not to say that adults won’t enjoy a trip back to childhood. The shop may be small but you are likely to linger as you’ll want to take a good look around, so plan accordingly.
