Candytopia: Wonka-esque sweets pop-up is extended through the holiday season

The candy pop-up to the stars, Candytopia, is extending its run in New York City through the holiday season, giving the sweet-toothed more time to experience a sugar high.

The huge exhibit, which will run through Jan. 6, welcomes visitors in through Wonka-esque gates, past a tiny “Harry Potter” -like village and whisks you into a dreamy, Instagram haven, where everything is made out of candy and made for selfies.

There’s candy for the taking — by the handful if you’re so inclined — and, yes, a pool of “marshmallows” that you can jump into and “swim” around in.

For Halloween, the pop-up is introducing crowds to the “Phantom of Candytopia” and treats for those who come in costumes.

The exhibit, which has drawn the likes of Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, James Corden and Wiz Khalifa, is $34 for adults and $26 for children ages 4 to 12. A new batch of tickets is on sale at candytopia.com and is expected to sell out quickly.

We got a sneak peek of Candytopia when it opened in August, so, in the words of Willy Wonka, “Come with me and you’ll see a world of pure imagination [below].”
