Why Not Propose a Candy Buffet for Your Special Day

June 9, 2017 by

“Life is the best party I’ve ever been invited to.”     — Arlene Francis

candy buffets are the life of the party!Dearly beloved . . . we are gathered here at the most popular month for weddings! Finally it’s your day. A day you’ve been dreaming about for so long. All the planning and preparation is over. Now it’s time to celebrate with family and friends. White dresses and black tuxedos. Beautiful flowers and great music. Delicious food, delectable cookies and you even remembered to include an eye-catching, colorful, candy buffet.

But hold the rice! Don’t toss your bouquet just yet!  Because candy buffets aren’t just for weddings you know!

On your wedding day, I’m sure you’ll hear the saying “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.” But for all those candy lovers not walking down the aisle this month, let’s “marry” that well-known quote to some unique candy buffets for any occasion.

Candy Buffets are not just for weddings anymore…

How about Something old to create a Happy 60th or 70th birthday candy buffet using candy favorites from years ago like Kits Taffy, Butterfinger, Chuckles (we can all laugh about our age now, can’t we), Mr. Goodbar, Oh Henry and a product from my era, the 1950’s, M&Ms. Celebrating a high school class reunion is a great occasion to set up a candy buffet featuring your high school colors. Celebrating your hair style back in those days . . . hmmm . . . not so much!

A candy buffet adds a sweet touch to almost any event!

Something new has endless possibilities for your candy buffet. Did your new neighbors buy that house next to yours? Why not throw them a “welcome to your new home” party? If it’s spring time how about a candy buffet done in all pastel colors? Candy Favorites has pastel M&Ms, gumballs, Hershey Kisses and even licorice. Add some 5th Avenues and Milky Ways. What a great way to welcome them to your great neighborhood!

Did someone have a new baby? Pink and blue candy buffets will welcome in that bundle of joy. Fill candy jars with Baby Ruths and Pacifier Pops for some added laughs.

Learn how to add creative touches to any event!

Any special day should have a candy buffet!

Something borrowed brings to mind sleepovers! You get it . . . you’re actually borrowing your children’s friends for a fun filled night, where they stay up late, watch movies, play games and eat candy!  Tootsie Pops, Fun Dip, Gummie Bears and Dubble Bubble Bubblegum will keep the laughs going.

Once I walked down to our basement at one of my daughter’s sleepovers and saw every kid glued to their phone. “Ok, all phones off, everyone make two teams,” I laughed. Then I gave each of them a wooden stick and the first one in line got a Life Saver. “The first team to successfully pass the Life Saver from one person to the other by holding your wooden stick in your mouth wins a prize.”

See who can blow the biggest bubble with bubble gum. Ask them to guess how many Jelly Belly Jelly Beans are in a jar. Play Minute to Win It to see how many M&Ms each kid can suck up with a straw and transfer them in a bowl. It’s amazing how candy can be such fun!

There’s blue Air Heads and Nestles Crunch. Whether it’s your high school team or your favorite pro sports team, the possibilities and color combinations are endless.

So celebrate life with candy. Whether it’s a birthday, new home, sleepover, tailgating with friends, or saying “I do” with the one you love, a candy buffet fits into any special occasion or reason for a party! So go on! Throw the rice! Blow out the candles! Giggle with your friends! Yell for your favorite team!

Life is about moments. Create them. Don’t wait for them. Life is sweet. Celebrate it!

Bachelorette Blowout: Candy Makes It Dandy

February 26, 2007 by

Last summer, I got roped in to throwing a bachelorette party for one of my good friends, and man, it’s difficult to find fun party favors and games! I drove to a bunch of different places, looking for some racy/fun stuff to give her or do at the party, but the pickings were slim. If only I’d known about all the great stuff that was out there!

Start off by soothing the stressful bride-to-be by giving her some Chai Latte, Tai Tea or Milk Chocolate Body Wash. It’ll help her chill out in the crazy pre-wedding days. If I were a bachelorette, I’d love to receive a full-size chocolate champagne bottle. There’s always enough booze at a wedding; there should always be more chocolate!
I’ve always been a huge fan of candy jewelry, so I was delighted to find a risque line of candy “clothing” completely appropriate to give at a bachelorette party. It would be fun to have each guests buy and give one item: there are candy bras, candy g-strings, candy garters, candy suspenders, and even a candy “posing pouch,” so your friends’ fiancee can get in on the fun. If hard candy’s not your taste, there’s also the option of outfitting your friend with some gummie panties and bras. Even if that’s not your scene, pick up some gummi handcuffs for the adventurous couple in your life. And with gummi handcuffs, you don’t even need a safe word! If you don’t like what’s going on, just gnaw on through to freedom.

Finally, there’s candy designed for the party as a whole. Grab some risque Candy Hearts, but try not to blush if they’re a little more, say, adventurous than the candy hearts you’re used to. There are also some cinnamon Hot Lips to share with your friends.

When you add your girlfriends, lots of chocolate and a bit of raciness, well, there’s no better recipe for a night out than that.

Bacherlorette Fun

April 25, 2006 by


At every bachelorette party, the gag gifts are inevitable. In fact, it’s usually one of the best parts, besides that fireman stripper of course. Well I have found what is probably the most useful (not to mention yummy) gag gift.

It’s the penis candy necklace. It’s pretty much the same as a regular candy necklace, but instead of the little circles, you get penises. Now of course there are usually some sort of penis gag gifts in the bags already. But normally they don’t taste this good! Which is why they are the most useful gag gift. Of course they don’t last very long. My roommate and I consumed the entire necklace in about 10 minutes.

Candy necklaces are just that tasty. And of course the fact that there are penises on it causes much giggling and obscene jokes. But isn’t that half the fun? So for you’re next bachelorette party, or even your next girls night out, bring along some penis candy necklaces. The fun never stops!

Until next time, this is Kandy K…..stay sweet!!
