Summer Candy

Buffet Candy Ideas for Your Summer Bash

Summer parties are in full swing and you may be thinking about a candy buffet for your get together. Summer candy buffets can be even more fun because of the colors, types of candy, and even how you present your candy. Here are some things we love to do with buffet candy during the summer months:

Buffet Candy for Summer | BlairCandy.com

First, you should definitely take advantage of the fun gummy candy that is out this time of year. Sharks, fish, turtles, octopi, even frogs are ready to go on display and be enjoyed by kids (and adults) of all ages. Ditch the gummy peach rings and make your gummy candy really nautical.

Second, stay away from some chocolates during the warm summer months. No one wants melted chocolate unless it’s on a sundae.  To add some kind of chocolate element, consider chocolates with a candy shell on the outside, like Sixlets or M&M’s.

Finally, consider some candy toys or novelty treats to add. Not only do you have another candy option on the table, but they also double as decoration. Also, you can really tailor this to the theme of your party.

The buffet candy options are endless at BlairCandy.com! Find classic staples in summery colors or go crazy with something unique. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to have the most talked about party on the block!

Desserts for Your Next Camping Trip

Camping in summer is a family tradition for many. While you may have your meals planned out, you still may be wondering what you should do for dessert. Obviously, you have to make s’mores, but what other sweet treats will make your trip memorable and fun for everyone? We’ve found three treats you can easily make with before you leave or while you’re around the campfire for something to satisfy that sweet tooth.

Campfire cones are a great way for everyone to customize their dessert while around the campfire. Take ice cream cones, marshmallows, fruit, along with ice cream toppings and stuff your cones. Then, roast over a fire with foil and you’re ready to go! Find the whole recipe at Hip2Save here.

The less cooking you have to do the better, right? Make these before you leave and take them with you for an easy to serve treat. Learn how to make these no bake, vegan peanut butter bars by Bunsen Burner Bakery here.

How to Prevent Candy from Melting in the Summertime

We all know that the hot sun and delicious candy simply do not mix. We shouldn’t have to be deprived of our favorite summertime candy just because it’s a bit hotter outside, so how do we prevent our delectable from succumbing to the sun’s heat?

By including ice packs with your order at Blair Candy, you can protect your sweets for up to 48 hours. We suggest one ice pack per each item ordered, as UPS, US Postal and Fedex trucks are not air conditioned!

We also suggest having your candy delivered in to an address where someone is there to accept your package once it’s delivered. The longer your candy delivery sits on your porch, the more likely it is to melt.

(Although ice packs are recommended, they should be purchased as added protection, not a guarantee.)
