CANDY BUFFET: What TYPES of candy did/will you use?

Title says it all...we always talk about jars, signs, poems, etc. but let's down to the real details...WHAT DID YOU PUT IN THE JARS? OR...what WILL you put in the jars?


For those that have already had their wedding:


What were your guest's favorite candies?


What was left over?


Anything you should have bought more of?

My colors were chocolate and aqua, so I did all chocolate candy.  I did chocolate covered gummy bears, chocolate covered raisins, chocolate covered mint square cookies, brownie bites, and chocolate covered pretzels.  I bought all of my candy from the bulk bins at Winco, and the cookies from the cookie aisle for 99cents a pack.  I spent only about $100 on candy and it looked nice and the guests ate every last drop.

My colors are Chocolate Brown, Lime (Apple Green) and Ivory with a hint of Gold.  I've started ordering my candy.  So far, I have green apple jolly rancher stix, green apple gumballs, laffy taffy in sour apple of course, sour apple candy stix.  In chocolate, I have tootsie rolls, rootbeer gumballs, rootbeer candy stix and chocolate tootsie pops.  I have gold wrapped Hershey's kisses.  And since I'm from N.O., I'm making suckers in the fleur de lis shape in both chocolate and white chocolate.

I'm having a fun on colorful candy buffet and not matching colors.  I'd LOVE to know where folks ordered candy from, in particular, the best site out there!  (I've seen a bunch of lists of places to order already!  TIA)

amanda, we have almost all of those on our list, too. We are also doing our favorites, most of which are considered retro candy by now. LOL.We are also doing cotton candy, I found a cool place online to order from that will package in CLEAR bags or tubs so that we can put our own labels, etc. on them and i think it will be super cute.


Calli, I think I'm putting more thought into this then anywhere else. I have been to every single Marshall's, home goods and TJ Maxx within a 100 mile radius...collecting apothecary jars and candy jars. I'm insane with this. It's fun!


Oh...amanda.....which were the first to go? did you have anything leftover?
