Sugar Factory: Desserts Baptized by Kylie Jenner

If you're looking to get your sugar fix for the year, pay a visit to Sugar Factory. Yes, the high-end candy retailer chain with outposts in New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas that's sold limited-edition $26 lollipops branded by celebs such as Britney Spears, Nicole Scherzinger, Mel B., Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, and Hello Kitty is a bit of a clichéd tourist trap, but it's also a good and boozy time and a hell of a place to people-watch.   

Opened in May and baptized by none other than Kylie Jenner, the 5,000-square-foot brasserie and candy retail store located inside Hotel Victor and conveniently overlooking the pedestrian-friendly Ocean Drive, Sugar Factory is just that: a shop of sweets. Nutella chocolate chip pancakes, apple pie, banana-split waffles, and crepes Suzette are just some of the treats. But don't be fooled by the candy-packed foyer — there are also plenty of savory items to enjoy. Offering mac 'n' cheese pops, pizza burgers, and even paella, the menu is a mishmash of anything and everything.

Milkshakes

Your sugar high begins with an old-fashioned milkshake ($11). Choose from flavors such as chocolate cookie jar, fluffernutter, red velvet, and Oreo. Get the Oreo — you won't regret it.

From there, take it to an alcoholic level, without forgoing lots of sugar. For that, 60-ounce goblets do the trick. The Ocean Blue features blue gummy sharks and liquid nitrogen, which will smoke up your entire table.

Or you can opt for the signature Lollipop Passion, a mix of melon, coconut, pineapple, and, of course, lollipops.

Martinis here come in peanut butter and sour apple.

Or if s'mores are more your thing, they've got them too.

At first, you might not be inclined to order the country-fried chicken ($24), but you'd be a fool not to. It's surprisingly insanely delicious. A crisp breaded thigh, breast, and leg come on a plate with a side of golden mac 'n' cheese.

Chef Christophe Bonnegrace would love for everyone who dines at Sugar Factory to enjoy a — wait for it — salad. Try the salmon salad ($22), with Atlantic salmon, shredded romaine lettuce, roasted red peppers, diced avocado, mango, fresh cilantro, and sherry vinaigrette.

Burger aficionados will be pleased with Sugar Factory's signature burger ($18), which has no frills or thrills but delivers on all the expected toppings.

Crepes Suzette ($16) come topped with house-made orange marmalade, vanilla ice cream, orange, lemon zest, and a chocolate drizzle.

Who doesn't love ice-cream sandwiches, especially when they involve gooey fudge brownies, vanilla ice cream, and candied walnuts ($11)?

For a grand finale, the world-famous King Kong sundae ($99) feeds up to 12 people (probably more). It contains 24 scoops of ice cream piled high with hot fudge, caramel, strawberry sauce, sliced bananas, toasted marshmallows, Reese's Pieces, chocolate chip cookies, waffle cones, gummi bears, white chocolate strawberry shavings, toasted walnuts, whipped cream, and giant lollipops — well beyond your recommended daily allowance of sugar. The proverbial cherry atop the King Kong sundae: sparklers. Because Miami.
