Starting today and running until July 28th 2019 you can Snack ‘N Snap your way through Metropolis at Metrotown’s Grand Court with larger-than-life food art displays, sampling from sweet & savoury snack retailers, pop-up treat carts, Workshop Wednesdays to make your own tasty treats, and contest giveaways.
The giant pink donut, 10-foot lollipop tree and cupcake house is back.
New this year, Metropolis has added a jumbo pretzel and melting popsicle displays that will make you want to snack for real.
Check out that pretzel. My kids loved it! Actually they loved all the oversized food items and begged me to let them bring them home – even after I reminded them that the melting popsicle, the doughnut and the pretzel are all bigger than our actual car.
Another aspect of the Snack ‘N Snap at Metropolis at Metrotown that my kids loved and one that they were able to take part in was the “how many jellybeans” activity.
You, like my kids can try to figure out (or guess) the correct number of jelly beans for a chance to win a $1000 shopping spree. You can enter the “Guess the Jellybeans” daily for more chances to win.
And I don’t know about your kids, but my kids LOVE any event that has “activities” for them to take part in.
Workshop Wednesdays presents a DIY Decorate your own sugar cookie with @sugarsugarstudios. At this activity you can learn to decorate your own cookie to take home. You can register online through the Metropolis website or if you are like me and you forget to pre–register, there are a few walk up spots available on a first come first serve basis.
The DIY Decorate is on Wednesday, July 17th and 24th at 3pm and 4pm.
And of course, EVERYONE’S favourite part of the Snack ‘N Snap at Metropolis are the sampling days on Thursdays and Fridays from 2pm to 3pm each day.
Watch for the following retailers providing samples and giveaways for Snack ‘N Snap: Curry Express, Godiva, Jugo Juice, Kernels, MUJI, Squish, Sugarfina, Thomas Sabo, and XSkin.
And if the sampling days are too busy for you and your family, you can visit the snack retailers for all the latest snacks, sweets or savoury treats.
Retailers such as Uncle Tetsu’s Japanese cheesecake, Sweet Jesus’ fun ice cream creations, latest mix of popcorn from Kernels, Mr. Pretzels pretzel bites, Chatime’s summer bubble tea flavours, Squish (my kids LOVE the treats from Squish) or Sugarfina for their latest candies, and more.
Finally, the name of this event is “Snap ‘N Share” so 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.
