Marriott’s Shadow Ridge adds Dylan’s Candy Bar

Just in time for Valentine's Day! Marriott’s Shadow Ridge in Palm Desert is bringing a sweet experience to its owners and guests with the opening of its very own Dylan’s Candy Bar, "the world’s sweetest candy emporium," modeled after the innovative New York flagship store.

“The Marriott Vacation Club experience is about creating memorable moments for our owners and guests,” said Daniel Slaughter, general manager of Marriott’s Shadow Ridge. “We’re excited to offer the first Dylan’s Candy Bar at a Marriott resort and see this as the perfect complement to our amenities at Marriott’s Shadow Ridge.”

The shop’s bright turquoise walls with a candy-coated ceiling, custom candy-themed light fixtures and shelves full of tantalizing treats is guaranteed to indulge the inner child in everyone. Guests can enjoy a delicious adventure discovering their favorite candy and chocolates, including scrumptious gummy bears and jelly beans, a vast variety of nostalgic treats and various flavors of Dylan’s Candy Bar’s exclusive line of chocolate bars. Other eye catchers include the famous Whirly Pop Tree with its branches of lickable lollipops and candy-inspired apparel and accessories that look good enough to eat.

The iconic Dylan’s Candy Bar was founded by Dylan Lauren, daughter of the legendary fashion designer Ralph Lauren. Dylan’s dream of combining a love of candy and a passion for art became a reality when the first Dylan's Candy Bar, located in New York City, opened in 2001. Since then, Dylan has expanded her stores to include locations in East Hampton and Roosevelt Field, N.Y.; Orlando, Fla.; Houston, Texas and prestigious wholesale venues around the globe.

“As a great explorer (of candy, that is) I love traveling and discovering new treats from around the world,” said Dylan Lauren, CEO & Founder of Dylan’s Candy Bar. “By partnering with Marriott’s Shadow Ridge, we have combined the delight of luxury vacationing with the deliciousness of candy to create a mouthwatering duo that will ensure the sweetest of escapes.”

Renown for merging the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture with candy, Dylan's Candy Bar is not your average "candy store." Besides over 7,000 different kinds of candy from around the world, it features candy-inspired fashion and a café serving delicious baked treats and gourmet ice cream, as well as a party room and candy-cocktail bar.

Located in the heart of Palm Desert, Marriott’s Shadow Ridge currently has timeshare rentals available for your Valentine getaway. And when you visit the candy store you can pick up something sweet for your sweetheart with Dylan’s Candy Bar Valentine’s Day special edition chocolate bars including a premium Belgian milk chocolate “Bleeding Heart Bar” filled with sweet red caramel, sure to get your Valentine's heart beating.
