Hey candy lovers! It’s 2019, and nothing in the candy world compares to the beloved Gummi Bear, or is it Gummy Bear? We’ll get to that later…
With choices like Watermelon, Hot Cinnamon and Gigantic Bananas we don’t think any other candy can compete with the demand of these fun and cute confections. No matter your favorite adaptation of these chewy delectable temptations, you have every reason to adore them.
Haribo or Bust
Those shiny and squishy bears have had millions of loyal fans across the world for decades. In fact, the first known Gummi bear (Gummibär) was made in Germany in the early 1920’s by the self made candy connoisseur, Hans Riegel.
HARIBO soon became one of the largest Gummi Bear distributors in the world.
What started off as colorless, hard candies soon turned into soft gelatin-based fruit snacks that resembled the popular bears that were seen dancing in festivals and parades.
Are you young enough to remember the Delfa Rolls, also called Danish Ribbons? They used to be sold by a few convenience stores in the 1960s. They were pretty hard to find because they were imported from overseas. It was a lot of fun eating Delfa Rolls because you could peel off the strips and chew on them, or just pop the entire roll in your mouth and suck on it until it was gone. You got a roll of licorice that you could separate into four rolls.

Hey there! My name is Tina and I decided to write more about my experience creating the Wedding Candy Buffet documented below. I worked closely with Dan and Ally to create this fusion of delightful sweets for their wedding. So I thought it would be a good idea to ..*BREAK IT DOWN* ! (I know there is some sort of dance move involved in that phrase lol) I thought this would be an awesome opportunity to get informative on this candy buffet. Not only was it fun but also inspiring! Click the video below to check it out and the read the rest of the post for behind the scenes candy buffet tips.
3 Reasons I wanted to blog about this Wedding Candy Buffet
1. To highlight this wonderful celebration and all it’s tasty treats!
2. To talk about the pros of having a candy buffet at your wedding.
3. And to give some advice on doing one yourself!
So first off, we were incredibly lucky to find Dan and Ally! We were searching for a local couple who was having a wedding in the next few months and after about a month they strolled into the store to purchase some candy. As I helped them check out, I asked them what the candy was for and when they gave me the details I was excited! Their wedding sounded like so much fun! On top of that, I knew we would be able to get creative with the overall theme of the wedding: 1920s Great Gatsby with a modern twist! And so it began….
Tip #1: Use larger candies for the bigger jars and more petite candies for the smaller jars. On our first meeting, we chose the candy and quantities based off the jars we already had. A lot of times people end up not having enough, or having too much based on the size of the jars they’ve purchased. However, if you do end up stuck in a situation where you do not have enough candy…
Tip #2: Grab a small clear cup or wrap a soup can in tin foil and place it in the middle of the jar. This takes up more space as all the candy piles up around the can and gives the illusion that the jar has more candy in it than it does. Don’t worry about your guests finding out your secret; they normally don’t scoop too deep into the jar anyway. Plus, you end up having to use less candy.
Tip #3 It’s Especially important to know the taste preference of your guests or “crowd.” I first asked Dan and Ally what kind of candy they liked: chocolate? Sour? Gummy? Wrapped? Nostalgic, old-time candies? These questions are very important.If everyone is relatively neutral, then shoot for a wide variety! Why not? The more the merrier!
After that, they were pretty easy to please! We went with Kopper’s Sugar cookies, which are little tiny white chocolate balls topped with sugar cookie powder. We also chose another gourmet favorite from Koppers (the S’mores). These babies are delicious! Crunchy, graham-cracker-like outside, and inside is chocolate and sweet cream. The outside finish is very much like a powderey graham cracker lol
Unfortunately not everything in a candy buffet is for taste. Sometimes you’re going to need something to fill the extra big jars and show off a little of a better-looking candy. So with that we added a jar of Gumballs and made a nice display with purple and green Whirly Pops and Round-Ups!
Tip #4 Candy Buffets are a great mixture of color & convenience! Most of our customers and event planners opt for the candy buffets because of convenience. These are great favors that your taste buds will definitly remember. And you can choose to eat some now and/or take a party favor bag filled with candy home with you. In addition, most of the candy doesn’t go bad right away.It’s a great wow-factor for the guests and you can offer them so much to choose from.
