Holiday Candy

Planning a Christmas Candy Buffet

Christmas Candy in Bulk for Candy Buffets | BlairCandy.com

Candy buffets are a great way to entertain guests at a holiday party. You can make them as large or small as you’d like, they’re easy to set up, and they make a great party favor station for your guests. But where do you start when planning out a buffet? We recommend you read below before buying your Christmas candy in bulk:

First, how many guests will you have? Be sure to plan to buy enough candy for at least a pound of candy a piece. This doesn’t include any novelty treats or baked goods. For those, you should plan on at least one treat per guest.

Next, start designing a table. You should choose a variety of glass bowls, apothecary jars, and cake stands to display your treats. The more variety you choose, the more appealing your table will look. Also, choose a color theme to base your candy and decorations off of.

Finally, assemble your table. Add labels to every jar and plate to show your guests what they’re about to enjoy. Wait to place baked goods until about 10-15 minutes before guests arrive, to ensure they stay fresh. You can also place serving utensils in the bowls and jars at that time. Additionally, be sure you have goodie bags so your guests have an easy takeaway favor for later.

This article from Quinceanera.com breaks down everything you need to plan your table. When you’re ready to get your Christmas candy in bulk, visit us at BlairCandy.com. We have all of the treats you need, from retro to new favorites to stock your candy buffet.

It’s National Candy Corn Day!

Bulk Candy Corn for National Candy Corn Day | BlairCandy.com

Candy corn…you either love it or you hate it! Regardless of how you feel about it, October 30th is National Candy Corn Day! Grab a handful of this classic fall candy and check out some facts about it that you may not have known about:

Candy Corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger and the Wunderle Candy Company, but later mass produced by Goelitz Candy Company, now known as the Jelly Belly Candy Company. Originally, candy corn had to be made by hand, each color being added on separately and molded into shape. Because of how time consuming this was, they decided to make this a seasonal candy, like how crops were harvested seasonally. With this and the shape, Candy Corn came to be.

Since then, Candy Corn has been made into different variations. Kernels with brown tops, called Indian Corn for Thanksgiving, and even red and green “corn” for Christmas. This “mellocreme” candy has also been made into pumpkins. Regardless of what it’s been made into, over 35 million pounds will be made this fall. That’s roughly 9 billion kernels will go into candy dishes and treat bags. You’ll even find candy corn flavored products, from cookies, drinks, even bagels!

Grab a small bag or a bag of bulk candy corn on BlairCandy.com today to celebrate!
