Whatever it is, it opened last Thursday, and it is something to behold. Described on its website as a “sprawling sanctuary of confectionary bliss,” the experiential museum debuted in New York and Los Angeles before arriving in San Francisco.
Like the the Museum of Ice Cream, it’s perfect for whimsical exploration, and instagram. Hoodline explains that Candytopia features seven rooms, one of the most notable being its art gallery. There, some of pop culture’s most recognizable faces — Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, and Prince among them — are comprised entirely of jelly beans, gummy bears, red vines, rock candy, sprinkles and jawbreakers.
In other rooms, guests will have the opportunity to be blasted by rainbow confetti that shoots out of a pig’s rear, or take a dip in the much-buzzed-about Marshmallow Pit.
Whatever it is, it might be worth checking out. Tickets are available now through the end of November.
