Hanukkah Candy Buffet

It is almost time for Latkes, and Noodle Kugel!

If you celebrate Hanukkah there is no need to explain what those two yummy recipes are made of! But we would love to wish you a Happy and Festive Hanukkah Season. With that being said, here is a beautiful buffet inspired exclusively by the ‘Festival of Lights’.

hannukah_candy_buffet

We think this is one of our most BEAUTIFUL buffets yet!!!

You can make yours just as festive and colorful, with the right candy and props. Look at those cute little Hanukkah themed styrofoam pieces we found at our local craft store!

For only 99¢ we jazzed up our Candy Buffet with Stars of David, Dreidals, and Miniature Glitter Spheres. Throw some blue or silver fine glitter on the table for an extra dose of magnificence.

Our inspiration came from some of our staff here at Bulk Candy Store. It occurred to us that everyone celebrates the upcoming Holidays differently, and this is our way of saying ‘Chag Sameach?’ (Happy Holiday) to our Jewish friends, and family!

Gelt (Gold Coins) made everything POP! Royal Blues, Silvers, Whites, and Gold are all common colors for this seasonal celebration, so don’t be afraid to get in there and get creative!

These are some of our FAVORITE gummies! They are called SnowFlurries. Not only are they delicious they are beautiful! Don’t you agree? Gummy Candy could NEVER be a disappointment if you ask us!

You can also use  fun foiled Candy to mix up the textures. We made our buffet super fancy with an antique Menorah placed in the middle! We loved the blue lights that glimmered off of the menorah onto the Buffet.

Have fun and make it jazzy! You could even put some home baked goods in there, after all, food is one of the staple ingredients to a perfect and Happy Hanukkah!

The Sweet Look of Candy Clothing

There are all kinds of fusions going on today; food, culture etc. So it only makes sense that in the past few years we have seen the fusion of candy and clothing (or does it?). Yup, you read that correctly, candy and clothing. You’re probably thinking I’m going to talk about candy necklaces or maybe even the “adult” candy bras, g-strings and panties, but nope, that’s not it. I’m talking about people using actual candy and/or candy wrappers to make some really one of a kind pieces. Continue reading

Valentine’s Day – How it started

 

St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, includes remnants of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. Have you ever wondered about who Saint Valentine was, or how he started this romantic ritual? One legend tells us that Valentine was a priest who lived in Rome during the third century. Roman Emperor Claudius II had just outlawed marriage, because he believed that single men made better soldiers than those with families. Saint Valentine continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Claudius found out about this, he had Valentine killed. Continue reading

Long Lost Candies: The Marathon Bar

Have you ever wondered what happened to the Marathon caramel chocolate bar? The Mars Candy Company introduced it in 1973 and it was a full eight inches of braided caramel covered in milk chocolate.  It was marketed as “the candy bar you can’t eat quickly” in commercials by some kind of a cowboy guy.  The Marathon Bar came in a bright red wrapper that made it stand out from the other candy bars. There was actually a ruler on the wrapper that showed how long it really was. Continue reading
