press_swatchIf you haven’t heard already, Pantone, “the global authority on color,” announced that this year’s it color is Emerald Green.

We’re fully expecting this powerful shade of green to translate to wedding and party candy buffets.

It’s a bold color that pairs well with mint green (another it color for spring), lemony yellow, peach, midnight blue, and lavender.

Here are three different candy color palettes using Emerald Green as a main or accent color. As you can see, a little bit of emerald goes a long way for a pop of color …

Labor Day is over, which means fall weddings, tailgate parties, homecoming dances, and Halloween parties are officially in season.

With insights from our discerning candy buyer, Rita Cummings, we’ve rounded up our top 10 fall candy picks to make all of your upcoming celebrations unique, fun, and majorly memorable.

#10. Football Pops

Football LollipopsTailgate parties aren’t all burgers, brats, and beer. Bring on the football sweets! Our Football Pops are perfect for poking into cakes and cupcakes … and for topping glass vases filled with candy (try Green Candy Sunbursts for a “turf” effect).

 

#9. Gummi Candy Corn

Gummi Candy CornClassic candy corn is always welcome for fall parties, but for chewy candy lovers, this year brings a special treat: Gummi Candy Corn. Each kernel is big, too, at approximately 1-inch tall, so this candy provides a huge splash of color on a dessert table.

 

#8. Apple Cider Candy Corn??

Apple Cider Candy CornAlso new in the candy corn category this fall is a crop of corn in fun colors and flavors like Apple Cider with a layer of red, brown, and cream. Other flavors include Raspberry, Raspberry Lemonade, Tangerine, Cinnamon, Candy Cane, Egg Nog, and Gingerbread. Think of the possibilities for baking and candy crafting!

 

#7. Candy Apple Taffy

With its deep red and green color, Candy Apple Taffy is a great choice for fall parties. This vibrant salt water taffy can be dressed up in a glass apothecary jar or served casually in favor bags or in a big bowl for trick-or-treaters.

 

#6. Pumpkin Gumballs

Dubble Bubble Pumpkin GumballsIndividually wrapped Dubble Bubble Pumpkin Gumballs are adorable … and perfect for crafting and topping cupcakes. (Check out the recent blog post about these orange cuties on our sister site, MyCandyCrafts.com.)

 

#5. Twinkle Candy Corn Pops

Twinkle Candy Corn Lollipops

Vanilla-flavored Candy Corn Pops scream “Halloween!” Each individually wrapped lollipop sits on a long 12-inch stick, making it a great choice for adding height to a candy buffet or centerpiece.  Tie on an orange bow to create a quick party favor, or bunch a dozen together for a Halloween bouquet.

 

#4. Autumn Mix Mellocremes

Autumn Mellocreme Candies for Halloween

Based on a Candy.com Facebook Poll, we found that the majority of our followers eat Pumpkin Mellocremes first when tempted with a bowl of Autumn Mix. Indian Candy Corn and Classic Candy Corn tied for second. From our poll, we also found out that there are lots of great memories attached to this classic mix, which is why we think it’s a must-have for every fall party.

 

#3. Fall Candy Sticks

Old-Fashioned Candy Sticks in beautiful autumn colorsOne of the best pops of color you can get in Candy Land is from old-fashioned candy sticks. Stack them on top of vibrant Sixlets in a tall glass jar, bundle them with a bow to make a pretty party favor, or display them on a flat white tray to create instant eye candy on a dessert table.

 

#2. Zombie Pops

Zombie LollipopsJust in time for the return of the AMC series “The Walking Dead,”  Zombie Pops  have arrived at Candy.com! The individually wrapped, cherry-flavored lollipops have incredible detail. (Lots of warts!) They’re so gross, yet soooo cool.

 

#1. Missing Body Parts Gummies

Missing Gummy PartsAt #1, we have bloody bones, severed fingers, brains, skulls, feet, and fangs all in one bulk bag! Imagine what you can do with these gross gummy body parts. Our candy buyer, Rita, is planning on floating them in a punchbowl along with yellow gummy chicken feet this Halloween. FaBOOlicious!
