“I love the taste, but also appreciate candy for all its qualities: colors, shapes, textures, packaging,” Lauren told the Miami Herald soon after the opening. “It makes me happy just to look at.”

A clerk at the store told the Miami Herald said that although this location was done, you could still visit the stores in Los Angeles, New York and The Hamptons if you’re in the area. DCB also does a brisk online business and currently has specials for Mother’s Day.
