 - Jan 26, 2017
These confectionery retail innovations range from alternative candy stores to whimsical ice cream parlors. Marrying fun flavors with decor that is equally as bold, these examples range from minimalist to quirky spaces that are inviting to those seeking to satisfy their sweet tooth.

When looking at notable brand activations, standouts include Cadbury's holiday chocolate grotto which surprised fans before Christmas along with the brand's creme egg cafe that served up a menu inspired by the popular Easter treat. Another standout is KitKat's candy-themed museum activation that recounts the history of the iconic brand, while spotlighting some of its most unique flavor combinations.

Stark bakeries, chocolate factory retailers and experimental dessert popups round off this list and boast memorable design details like sculptural merchandising displays and interactive elements for visitors to enjoy.
