Our Top Cheap Parade Candy Recommendations

Line up the floats and strike up the band, it’s parade season!  One of the many things we love about summer is lining up along Main Street for one of the many parades our local fire companies and veteran’s groups have.  They are often the kick-off to a weekend bazaar where there’s plenty of homemade food, games, and fun to be had.

But we have to admit, the best part of the parade, besides all the creative floats the local organizations put together, is watching the kids go running after the penny candy that is thrown off those floats!  It takes us back to when we were kids racing to pick up a few pieces of bubble gum or some Jolly Rancher candies.

If your organization is participating in a parade, don’t let the little spectators along the route be disappointed!  Be known as the float or motorcade that tosses the absolute BEST candy!

Here are some of our top pics for parade candy that will surely be a hit.

Tootsie Frooties
Who doesn’t love Tootsie Rolls?  These fruit-flavored Tootsie Frooties are a parade candy favorite every summer, and for good reason.  Not only do kids and adults love them, but we also have them packaged in a huge 4-pound box that has over 500 pieces of candy.  Order a couple boxes and toss them out by the handful – and we won’t snitch if you have a few pieces for yourself.


Just mention the word “chocolate” and we come running and so will your spectators once they see M&Ms being tossed from your parade float.  We have big 20 and 23-pound boxes of Milk Chocolate M&Ms and Peanut M&Ms that contain nearly 600 individual fun-size bags of these delicious treats.

Dum Dum Lollipops
You won’t have to go through your local bank branch’s drive-thru to get one of these iconic lollipops.  You can grab a box of 1,800 of them (whoa!) and make a whole lot of fans along your parade route happy to get one.  After all, when you think about lollipops, you automatically think of Dum Dums.

Original Bazooka Bubble Gum
Our list of favorite parade candy would not be complete without including gum and there’s none better than Original Bazooka.  This nostalgic treat will bring back memories and introduce its classic flavor to a whole new generation.  We sell this gum in a 225-count bin so you can toss out pieces by the handful.

Need more suggestions?  Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty!  Check out our complete selection of bulk candy that will make your fans happy and won’t break the bank.
