Candytopia is a traveling interactive installation with candy art galleries, flying unicorn pigs and a marshmallow tsunami swimming pool. It's an Instagram hot spot. It's a utopia for candy lovers. And its gift shop is doing gangbuster sales. 


John Goodman, Candytopia CEO, talks about how Candytopia came about, its growth plans and what he's learned from playing the ringleader of a crazy candy circus.


Portions of this episode were recorded in front of a live audience at the ICSC New York Deal Making conference in December 2018.
