Candy.com Candy Buffet Contest Fourth July 4

In the spirit of Independence Day, we decided to give you a little patriotic inspiration to go along with the contest. Needless to say, to put this together we looked at a lot of red, white, and blue sweets!   As a whole, we decided to stick with items that hold up well in the heat, and we also found ourselves gravitating to fruit and berry flavored items that are sweet and refreshing at the same time. Take a look!

Lets start with the centerpiece. We wanted a real eye catcher, so we picked  these blue and white Twister Pops. At one foot long, these lollipops can’t help but attract attention.  To present them, we found a great oblong metal bucket (meant for utensils) from HomeGoods, and filled its sections with Styrofoam. We planted the sticks in it, and they stood right up.  You can’t see, but we then covered the styrofoam with white sixlets to give it a cleaner look.

We filled the front of the bucket with Watermelon Cube Pops. These tasty  pops are a pretty juicy visual compared to a standard small round pop.

Next we put a perennial favorite, rock candy sticks (Strawberry, White Sugar, and Raspberry), in a bed of white sixlets.  In hot weather, if a candy item has a stick option; go with it.  Sticky fingers do not a happy quest make.

For single color candies, we wanted three simple candy staples that would present simple, large blocks of color. The red is the gummy, a delicious red raspberry gummy from Albanese…

Lastly, these blueberry jelly jeans from Jelly Belly are about as blue as you can get and burst with flavor.

For one last element, we found this great three piece tower at HomeGoods (FYI you can find all the glass containers we use there!) We did a combo of blue raspberry pufflettes at the top and bottom and filled the middle with more red gummies.

For styling, we wanted to keep it traditional with a slight vintage American feel.  We labeled the candy containers with simple blue and red hangtags on twine.   We used the same tags for the signs, and added a band with red and white striped craft paper.

Friends and family can take some candy home in red paper bags, and we put these and the candy scoop in small metal buckets decorated with the same striped craft paper and blue stars.

For the streamers, we cut simple triangles using the the same red and white striped paper and blue paper that we used for the buckets, but we also cut white stars to add to the blue. We hung it on the same twine as the hangtags, and called it a styling day!

October 31 is looming large. Most trick-or-treaters have picked out their costumes. Pillow cases and plastic pumpkin buckets are out of the closet. And, candy is top of mind!

Here is a roundup of 5 of our most unique Halloween candies for this frightfully fang-tastic event:

1. World’s Largest Gummy Skull
Weighing in at 5 pounds, the World’s Largest Gummy Skull is grossly entertaining. The packaging includes a slot underneath where you can place your own small flashlight to make it glow. You can gift this cranium to friends and family, light it up … and eat it! Also noteworthy: it’s gluten-free.

2. Cauldron of Chocolate Gift Basket

Another great gift idea … especially for those who won’t be trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Filled with mini Snickers, Milky Way, Hershey’s, Reese’s Cups, and more, this reusable 9 1/4″ x 9 1/4″ x 5″ black cauldron is great for handing out treats next year.

3. Snickers Pumpkins
If you’re a trick-or-treater and you get a Snickers shaped like a pumpkin, it’s highly doubtful you’ll trade it out at the end of the night  … unless you have peanut allergies.

4. Halloween Peeps
Halloween Peeps made our list of Halloween-must have because you can do so much with then. Pop them on top of cakes and cupcakes, insert them into treat bags, place them on a straw to create Peeps pops, string them to make Halloween garland, and, of course, eat them.

5. Fall Pumpkin Gummies
These bulk pumpkin-shaped gummy candies are ideal for Halloween parties because they add lots of seasonal color:  bright orange (orange flavor), yellow (lemon flavor), light orange (black cherry flavor). They’re also perfect for classroom parties and treat bags.
