Candytopia is Candyliscious!

What is Candytopia? 

Here’s what the Candytopia website Candytopia! says:

What if an eccentric chocolatier and a daredevil pop star had a whirlwind romance, got married while skydiving, and had a glamorous, glittering love child who grew up to rule a small nation?  Welcome to Candytopia, where colossal candyfloss constructions meld with a tantalizing taffy twistedness!
Explore our sprawling sanctuary of confectionary bliss, tastefully curated by Hollywood Candy Queen Jackie Sorkin, realized by master fabricator Zac Hartog, and brought to life by life-long retailer, John Goodman. This four-month interactive art installation celebrates the vibrant colors and flavors of our favorite sugary delights across over a dozen environments, from flying unicorn pigs to a marshmallow tsunami. Bring your family, your friends, and your sweet tooth for an experience like none other!
If you ever dreamed of nibbling your way through Candyland or scoring a Golden Ticket, you’ve come to the right place. Treat yourself to Candytopia, and let your tastebuds and your imagination soar!

Here's what I say:

Last week, I went to Candytopia with my friends!  Boy, was it sweet!  I had not heard of Candytopia, but I am glad my friend had.  She secured tickets for exactly 11:45 AM on a Monday.  We headed to Atlanta.  When we arrived slightly early, the Candytopia folks said, "No entry until 11:45 AM".  We wasted a little time at Target and then, headed back to Candytopia.

There were lots of excited Candytopia workers that met us at the front door.  Once they gave a basic introduction to Candytopia, we were on our own.

Have a look at what all we discovered!

Cool Swings!

I love how they give the Candy Facts for the sculptures!

The color in this place was AMAZING!

Have a look at the Art Candy at Candytopia!

The Candy Thinker...

Here's the real thinker at THE MUSÉE RODIN in Paris!

Like Pixie Sticks?  Here is a big chest of them just for you!

There were lots of photo ops along the way!  You had to give Candytopia your email and they would email the photos to you!

I just love Boomerang!

Lots of Confetti in the Pig Room!  They even have blowers to blow confetti off your body on the way to the next room. 

A little chalk art drawing time!

In this photo, the wheel spun!  I am not a fan of spinning things!  Carsick, City!

Emoji boy!

Love this funny pose!  Crazy Knonny!

Finally, the Marshmallow Room!  This was so cool!  
Look at Knonny's slow jump into the big pile of Marshmallows!

I still have confetti in my hair from the pig's booty!

A tribute to the great state of GEORGIA by Candytopia!

Folks, Candytopia was worth the bucks!  It was fun for adults and kids!  The colors were amazing.  No filters needed because of such amazing lighting in the exhibit.  My favorite was the candy that was made into art!  Also, I did not mind getting lots of free candy in each room!

It Candytopia is near you, mosey on over and have a look!  It is a sweet treat!  I promise!

Here's Iggy Pop and Kate Pierson (B-52s) singing....Candy!
