Dylan Lauren, founder of Dylan’s Candy Bar, announced the launch of a new healthier line of candy in an interview with CBS. The line is called “Treat Yourself” and will feature candies that are exclusively vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, and allergen-free. This is part of the expansion for the company including new stores opening in locations like Dubai and Japan.
