If you’ve ever dreamed or imagined yourself to be in a whimsical Wonka-like wonderland, Metropolis at Metrotown is the place to be from August 11th – 20th! In celebration of sweet & salty snacks (the best flavour combination IMO), Metropolis at Metrotown invites the public to experience their newest exhibit: Tasty Treats.

This magnificent exhibit promises larger than life food displays, tasty samples from sweet & salty snack retailers, daily contests and more! It’s a fantastic way to beat the heat this summer and enjoy some delicious snacks.

As a candy lover from way back who used to doodle lollipop bushes and gumdrop trees while enjoying a bag full of penny candy (remember penny candy??), this is like a dream come true. Seriously. A giant cupcake sprouting a lollipop tree? A donut taller than I am? This could be everyone’s dream come true from littles right up to candy loving adults.

One of the largest features of this mouthwatering exhibit, located in the Grand Court, is a 7ft gumball machine that actually works! Filled with 22 000 jawbreakers, it will only cost you a quarter to turn that crank and get one for yourself. But the best part is: every quarter will be donated to Burnaby Neighbourhood House, a wonderful local charity. This 10 day event is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and your soft spot!

As if this event wasn’t sweet enough already, there are two (2!) different contests with prizes of a $1,000  Metropolis at Metrotown shopping spree as well as other prizes up for grabs! How do you get in on these generous giveaways? Easy peasy lemon squeezie.
