Memorabilia at Dylan’s Candy
On one wall, there’s a timeline showcasing the evolution of candy.
Did you know that Hershey’s invented the Chocolate Kiss in 1907? It was named the Kiss because the machine that made them looked like it was kissing the conveyor belt they were made on!
Or that the Life Saver (named after it’s ring shape) was first introduced in it’s signature peppermint flavour. 22 years later, the fruit flavours were on the shelves for the first time.
Jelly Belly Gourmet Jelly Beans
There’s a WALL full of different flavoured Jelly Belly jelly beans too. I’ve never seen so many jelly beans in my life.
Plus a GIANT self-portrait of Dylan herself made entirely from jelly beans.
