Ice Cream Toppings for Your Sundae Bar

Ice Cream Toppings | BlairCandy.com

With the amount of cookouts and get-togethers this season, an ice cream sundae bar is a great solution. Not only is it fun for your guests, but it lets everyone create the dessert they want at the end of the meal. But what ice cream toppings do you need to have for a successful bar? These are the basics that you definitely should have sitting next to your ice cream:

M&M’s – Everyone wants extra chocolate in their sundae! M&M’s not only give you the chocolate you’re looking for, but also that candy crunch that is so satisfying.

Chopped Nuts – Can you have a sundae without chopped peanuts? Not really. Chopped peanuts are great, but adding chopped almonds can also add more flavor to a sundae.

Liquid Topping – Fudge and marshmallow topping are a must! These are a great finishing touch to any sundae. Fudge, marshmallow, strawberry, and caramel are usually the fan favorites.

Blair Candy has these and plenty of other classic and crazy toppings for your ice cream sundae bar. Everyone will talk about how fun the idea was and how many ice cream toppings they added to their sundae! Shop now to get started, and don’t forget the sprinkles!

Traditional Wedding Candy for Your Summer Wedding

Wedding Candy | BlairCandy.comSummer weddings usually are a little more laid back than the other seasons. However, traditional wedding candy still makes an appearance at these events. While you can really spice things up with a candy buffet, you should make sure you have the following somewhere at the event.

Jordan Almonds: These candy coated almonds are a wedding staple. Choose from a variety of colors or go with a simple white color to fill jars at the buffet or add to small bags for a take away treat.

Pastel Mints: While the colors don’t appeal to those choosing decorations, these mints are just as soft as they are sweet. Because of this, many overlook the colors and serve them anyway.

Melty Mints: These are extremely similar to pastel mints, especially when it comes to the colors. However, they melt a little faster which gives them the difference from pastel mints.

Whether you want to go traditional or a little more modern, Blair Candy has the treats you need for your candy buffet, decorations, or as treats to take away.
