Candytopia is coming to San Francisco in September

Guess what, Museum of Ice Cream fans? If you loved every scoop-tastic, rainbow-sprinkled Instagram-background minute of your time at the San Francisco museum, you’ll be delighted to know that its confectionary equal is about to descend on us.

After a successful run in Los Angeles and a details-still-coming run in New York, Candytopia is coming to San Francisco for a limited-run on Sept 6.

Never heard of it? Oh, you will. The immersive, candy-coated pop-up and wonderland features one-of-a-kind sensory experiences for adults and kids, and drew sold-out crowds and celebrity interest — Gwyneth Paltrow, James Corden and Wiz Khalifa, to name a few — in Santa Monica.

Candytopia is the brainchild of celebrity candy artist Jackie Sorkin, and was created in partnership with retail veteran John Goodman, a longtime San Francisco resident. You can expect more than a dozen distinctive rooms and art installations made from gumdrops, licorice and every other sweet-tooth surprise.
