As the end of May approaches, many have already walked across what at the time seems like the longest stage in the world to wrap their hands around that hard-earned diploma. Others still are anxiously awaiting the day in coming weeks that they too will pace their steps and their breath as they reach for one of the most important pieces of paper they’ll ever know. It’s Graduation Season, one of the most monumental times of year our country knows! And with these proud accomplishments often comes a celebration of family, friends, food and fun.
If you’re planning a graduation party for yourself or a loved one, we can’t help but chime in with a reminder that candy is the sweetest gift of all. But in addition to being a delightful treat, candy can also play into your theme or décor, with colors and options to complement any and every party you can dream of. After all, as the popular quote goes: “Reach for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the Starburst!” Or is it “land among the stars”? I can never remember. 😉
You’re Getting Ready For The Big Leagues. The Big League Chew, that is! A fan favorite, this gum will not only be enjoyed for its unique packaging and fabulous flavor, but also makes a cute and clever tribute to grads who will be hitting the job market soon.
Look At You With The Great Grades! Is the grad you’re celebrating walking away with a nice, high GPA? Pay homage to their big, beautiful brain with Smarties! Sure, you’ve always known they were among the brightest bulbs shining, but now they have numerical proof of their amazingness. And if they were picked on as a kid for their high grades, poke a little fun but adding some Nerds Ropes to the candy mix. Nobody seems to make fun of ‘nerds’ past age 18. Kinda funny how that works, isn’t it? (Whatever you do, just don’t get Dum Dum Pops!)
Consider Where They’re Headed After Graduation. Is your grad headed to the Army? Our green apple flavored Gummi Army Men would make an awesome addition to the table! Future X-Ray Technician? Our Gummi X-RAY Fish are as cool as they are tasty. Maybe they have a much-needed vacation on the horizon? Browse our candy selection and see if there’s something that ties into that, too. If Cancun tickets are carefully stashed away, Mexican Gummi Hats would be a colorful choice. If they’re heading a bit further away to Sweden, Swedish Fish would work wonderfully! Even if there isn’t a sweet treat that works as perfectly as these, with a little thought and creativity, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
