According to the team behind Candytopia, a popular pop-up experience that recently made its debut in Atlanta, this wild and whimsical exhibit can be compared to the “glittering love child” of an “eccentric chocolatier and a daredevil pop star that had a whirlwind romance, and got married while skydiving”. With that said, the teammates of NELSON Atlanta had to check it out and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see what the magical museum was all about.

Our studio took a break from reality to visit this sugar-filled art exhibit and upon arrival we were impressed. Large scale pop-up experiences are a popular trend nowadays and despite the somewhat pricey fee to get in, we found it well worth the visit. The museum consists of twelve rooms full of over-the-top décor, Instagrammable moments, and hundreds of thousands of pieces of candy. From a life-size sculpture of Ray Charles playing Georgia On My Mind, to flying pigs and confetti canons each room had its own unique experience and we really enjoyed the bits and pieces of localization they added to celebrate the culture of Atlanta.

Things To Know Before You Go:

  1. Bring a large purse or go with someone who has one because you get candy in every room.
  2. You will be covered in confetti from head-to-toe and will continue to find it for days.
  3. You will need a shower after going in the marshmallow pit, but don’t let that stop you…because let’s be honest, you haven’t really lived until you’ve pulled your co-worker out of four feet of foam marshmallows.

If Candytopia is coming to a town near you, don’t miss out!
