We had the pleasure of visiting this display when it launched for the first time 2 years ago and the kids absolutely loved it, I mean how could they not? Returning this year are the life-sized donut, gingerbread house and gummy photo station and this year’s newest additions included life-sized melting popsicles and a giant pretzel as a nod to Mr. Pretzels – a favourite snack shop of mine in the mall.

These displays are set up for ton of fun photo-ops and you never know, your photo may win you a shopping spree at Metropolis at Metrotown!

  • Snap ‘N Share! During the exhibit, shoppers can snap endless selfies in front of the jumbo displays, share their photos on Instagram by tagging @metropolisatmet and #METSNACKNSNAP, and enter for a chance to win a prize pack or a $500 Metropolis at Metrotown gift card.

Workshop Wednesdays invites guests and their families to a DIY Decorate your own sugar cookie with @sugarsugarstudios on Wednesday July 17 & 24th from 3PM-4Pm. Decorate your own cookie to take home (and learn some fun cookie decorating skills!). Registration is recommended and can be done through www.metropolisatmetrotown.com. Walk up spots will be available on a first come first service basis but it is recommended that you register to avoid disappointment (and lack of cookies always makes me disappointed).

While you’re already at the mall to check out the Snack ‘N Snap display, don’t forget to visit one of Metropolis at Metrotown’s latest snack retailers for all your snacky needs – whether you’re a sweet or savoury fan, there’s something for everyone. With camping, park and playdates, snacks are key to getting through the summer with kids and some of my faves can be found in the mall.

Some of the new vendors/must have snacks include Uncle Tetsu’s Japanese cheesecake (seriously so delicious and worth waiting in the line for), Sweet Jesus’ fun ice cream creations, the latest mix of popcorn from Kernels, Mr. Pretzels pretzel bites (my FAVE), Chatime’s summer bubble tea flavours, Squish or Sugarfina for their latest candies. Hoping to do a bunch of shopping at once?  Stores such as Walmart, Real Canadian Superstore, T&T Supermarket, Shoppers Drug Matt and even MUJI also sell various snacks for all your parties and movie nights!
