Miami Sweet: Experience a ‘Candy Dreamland’ in Aventura

A sugary escape has made its way to Aventura Mall – and it was created by the same co-founder as the popular Candytopia! 

Miami Sweet is the latest immersive experience to hit our town, combining art, entertainment, and retail to deliver an unforgettable visit that ignites the imagination.

Miami Sweet is open to the public through February 2022, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy this experience for all ages. The price tag is a little heftier than what we usually feature – at $29 per person – but you apparently get a lot as part of the package.

Miami Sweet features 12 interactive rooms that elicit the “good-vibes-only” Miami lifestyle. Journey through a Versace-themed, South Beach candy pop-art gallery and sway along with samba dancers in the Candy Carnival room. Or maybe swinging on licorice vines through the jungle in the Zoo Tropical area is more your vibe!

This experience offers so much to see, do and taste – with more than 20,000 square feet of fun, and of course, plenty of Instagrammable moments.

“It was time for me to create something that stands as a reminder that life is beautiful and nothing can steal our joy,” says Jackie Sorkin, founder and creator of Miami Sweet, in a statement. “This is my answer to the hardship, providing everyone with a care-free opportunity where your only job is just to have fun, come play, and make sweet memories!”
