Joe Melville, one of the owners of Candy.com, and his fiance, Jen, tied the knot last weekend! The East Coast wedding was picture perfect, and, as expected, the candy buffet was magnificent and full of surprises.

Sharon Chase from Princess Sharon Events of Boston styled the aqua, purple, and silver sweets table, and made it look like a queen’s jewelry box with opulent serving vessels.

One of many unique touches were personalized Necco Sweethearts with sayings like, “Jen & Joe,” “Love is Sweet,” and “Forever & Always,” as well as their wedding date.

To get guests seated creatively, the Melville Candy Company (the groom’s other fun family business), made personalized pops with edible names and table numbers.

The Melville Candy Company also created sparkling purple mustache lollipops. The fun pops were displayed on a bed of lavender foiled chocolate balls and could be used as photo props.

Wedding guests were treated to custom wedding cake-shaped cookies, layers of beautiful purple and white Jordan Almonds, purple rock candy sticks, and a treasure trove of turquoise, lavender, purple, white, and cream jelly beans.

Every guest got to fill a glass mason jar with candy as a wedding favor. The jars were beautiful! Each one was topped with a silk purple flower and personalized with an “M” for Melville.

Radpack Gumballs

OK, get ready for five completely radical gumballs in one pack: Flaming Hot, Foaming, Colorful, Extremely Cool, and Super Sour.

Each of the five flavors in SweetWorks’ new Radpack Bubble Gumballs mix is over-the-top, and that’s an understatement.

Meet Ball of Fire, a gumball that gives habañero a run for its money; Mouth Mess, which oozes color and will instantly turn your tongue into a Picasso; Super Sour, a gumball guaranteed to make you wince (and possibly cry); Extreme Cool with ridiculously icy mint flavor; and Foaming Flavor, which should be avoided at all costs when wearing white.

If that doesn’t pique your interest, these extreme gumballs are also gluten-free, kosher-certified … and perfect for ambushing unsuspecting friends who are fully expecting a classic, cherry-flavored gumball. So evil.

We double-dog dare you to try a Radpack and give it a review at Candy.com. C’mon … do it!

Move over Benjamin Moore. Candy by color is all the rage.

Several manufacturers have jumped on board with this new, colorized way to buy candy, including Spangler with its single-color Dum Dum Pops and Saf-T-Pops; Albanese with gummy bears in most any color imaginable; Adams & Brooks with Unicorn and Whirly Pops now available in 10 individual colors; and SweetWorks with Sixlets, Candy Pearls, gumballs, and Foil Hearts and Foil Ball chocolates in a range of colors that all match.

Bottom line, the candy industry has become heaven for event planners and consumers who are color-matching for weddings and theme parties.
