Dylan's Candy Bar: Ten Reasons Grownups Will Love It (Photos)

Dylan's Candy Bar opened about a week ago, and already it's giving the Apple Store down the street some stiff competition as the most popular (and populated) place on Lincoln Road.

We've been there twice, and both times the two-story shop, founded by Ralph Lauren's daughter, Dylan, has been filled with people browsing, shopping, and eating. And by people, we mean grownups.

Sure, there are some kids in the store. But the majority of patrons are adults -- with no child in sight. Does that surprise you? It shouldn't, because Dylan's is a nirvana for adults. It's a fantasy land filled with sweet memories, fun trinkets, and some very grown-up treats and drinks perfect for a get-together with friends or a casual date night.
