In my post of Feb 24th…’Painting Party’… I said I had one more birthday gift to collect. I did that recently with my daughter Deb. There are actually two gifts to tell about. One I knew about, one I didn’t.
Dylan’s Candy Bar I knew about… but before we went there we walked a little further down E 60th St to.
Serendipity 3 for lunch. Why there? Well, because of their famous, delicious, heavenly chocolate dessert….. Frozen Hot Chocolate, which I adore.
I would have gone straight for the frozen hot chocolate but Deb said we should at least have a sandwich or something first. They were okay. I only ate half of the chicken salad and Deb’s prosciutto sandwich turned out to be less than fresh… I’m pleased to say that the management generously rectified that situation.
And then…. tah dah… THE frozen hot chocolate.
This is me in 1994 the first time I had frozen hot chocolate.
Good to the last lick.. and as sinfully delicious as I remembered it… and yes, I drank it all by myself.
You might think we had no desire to even look at anymore sweets. Nope. Still had Dylan’s Candy Bar to visit and use my gift card from Deb.
So down the block we waddled to…
We were literally like kids in a candy store.
So much to look at, so much candy it boggled my mind. And there were other interesting things like this illuminated staircase.
Miscellaneous this and that… a birthday hat, and yes, apparently chocolate does aid in healing.
Starting at bottom left going clockwise: chocolate/raspberry bar – chocolate covered pretzel balls – a box of chocolate covered pretzels – chocolate covered krispies and chocolate covered sandwich cookies.
There was one other stop, the New York Public Library, but you’ll have to wait a bit for that post as I’m coming down off my sugar high and think I need to rest a bit 🙂

I loved reading about and seeing your NYC day! Yummy! Frozen Hot Chocolate–you loved every bite, I’m sure.
I’ve heard about Dylan’s–it is really a candy lovers dream! I’m going to show your photos to Jess. She is a candy-lover!
What a wonderful day–will look forward to hearing about the library.
