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.

So, you are browsing the candy by color category at BulkCandyStore.com and a thought bubble pops over your head – How much candy do I need for this event?

So lets do the math – if 25 party goers RSVP yes to your event, then you will need 200 ounces of candy or 12.5 pounds – that’s 25 people, times 8 OZs of candy equals 200 OZs. Divide the 200 ounces by 16 ’cause 16 oz = 1lb and you will need to buy 12.5 lbs of candy. (I bet you did not know that math was this sweet:) Now, I know some of your guests may take more than 8 ounces, but if your friends are like mine, some will be watching their weight, so they will take less or they may leave the delicious candy treats behind – yes, I did take that into account – it all balances out.

Yes, cake pops are all the rage, but how did they come to be? The concept of a ball of sweet cake is actually not new, I suspect that some inspiration was derived from donut holes, which are sweet dough balls glazed or coated with glaze or cinnamon and sugar crumb. Donut holes; however, are considered more of a breakfast item with only a basic presentation quality. They are yummy and fun to eat, but a tray of donut holes just doesn’t have that “wow” factor we all strive for, especially when selecting party foods. Continue reading →
