Sweeten Up Your Gender Reveal with Candy!

Gender reveals are all the rage right now and many have been coming up with some very creative ways to make the big announcement. From smoke bombs and confetti to cakes and pinatas, we’ve seen a lot! But, when it comes to sweet occasions like this, we can’t help but think about different ways to incorporate candy, so let’s go!

First, let’s head over to our candy by color section – the perfect spot for selecting sweets in specific colors for wedding receptions, bridal showers, birthday parties, class reunions… and gender reveals!

Of course, we have a great selection of pink and blue candy perfect for the occasion, many available in bulk for satisfying the sweet tooth of a small to large gathering.

Pink and blue mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Hershey Kisses are perfect for putting into large clear pedestal jars or bowls. They come in 5lb bags so there’s great for filling up these large types of containers, and let’s be honest… nobody is going to pass up one of these classic chocolate treats.


We all know that kids just love lollipops so why not include these as part of your gender reveal to welcome in your new addition! Whirly Pops are available in, you guessed it, pink and blue. You can even tie a little tag onto the lollipop’s stick with your family name and date of the party so your guests can have a keepsake of your special day.


Another candy that goes great in clear display containers are pink and blue chocolate balls. They can also be used as small party favors. Take a small amount and put them into a small clear drawstring bag, tie the top with a pink or blue ribbon, and voila!


There’s also large gum balls and some classic candies such as pink and blue rock candy sticks and the ever popular candy sticks that bring a bit of nostalgia to your party.

Whether you’re hosting a gender reveal party or another event and you’re looking for creative ways to incorporate candy, just head over to our candy by color section to pair sweets with your company, sports team, high school, or college’s colors and wow your guests with a sweet surprise.

Tips for Planning a Perfect Family Movie Night Complete with Candy and Snacks!

Looking for fun things to do at home with your family now that spring is here and summer is right around the corner? We previously talked about fun activities such as making S’mores and whipping up a batch or two of delicious Rice Krispies Treats using our new kits. Today, our sights are set on Movie Night!

Movies are a great way to bring the whole family together for an hour or two of wholesome entertainment. Here’s some tips for planning a movie night with your family:

  1. Pick the venue! You don’t need to get in your car for family movie night, have everyone vote on whether to screen the chosen movie either indoors or outdoors. Inflatable movie screens and projectors for outdoor viewing are readily available online and they’re not as expensive as you may think.
  2. Pick the movie! Will it be a comedy, mystery, thriller, or a classic like Mary Poppins? Let everyone pick one movie they would like to see, and then either vote or randomly pull a title out of a hat to choose the evening’s flick.
  3. Pick the snacks! We admit, this is our favorite part of planning for family movie night and there’s no shortage of recommendations, so let’s roll film on some great movie candy and snacks.

Popcorn
Nobody can watch a movie without snacking on popcorn, so having this snack on hand is considered a must. We like to make ours the old fashioned way, on the stove or in an popper, as opposed to the microwave.

 

Concession Stand Size Snacks
If you really want to get creative, you can setup a concession stand somewhere in your house where everyone can go and pick out a snack or two to take into the “theatre.” Of course, since this is movie night, skimpy size bags of candy won’t cut it. You need the big sizes just like they sell at your local theatre’s concession stand. We’ve got a huge selection of movie theatre size candy to choose from including all time favorites like Jujyfruits, Mike & Ike, and of course, Twizzlers.

Helpful Tip: Choose your candy wisely!  It’s warm out there this time of year, so choose candy that won’t melt during transit.  Gummy candy, licorice and other types that won’t melt are what we recommend so your audience isn’t disappointed by a melted mess of chocolate.

Theme Candy to the Movie
Now’s here where you can become the star of movie night. If you’re going to be watching the classic film JAWS, be sure to order a bag of gummy sharks!

Watching a Disney movie featuring Mickey Mouse and pals? Don’t forget to order some bags of Mickey and Minnie Mouse Jelly Belly jelly beans.

 

There’s so many different ways to pair candy with the type of movie your watching, so put your thinking cap on and use the search feature on our site to come with the perfect movie-candy pairing.

Cotton Candy
Cotton candy, or candy floss, isn’t just found at fairs and carnivals and you don’t need a machine at home to make it for your night at the movies. We have ready-to-eat cotton candy in a rainbow of flavors that makes it easy to add this sweet treat to your lineup.

Planning a family movie night isn’t hard and everyone can play a role in making it come to life. So pick your movie, order your candy and snacks, and get ready to yell… roll film!

Patriotic Red, White and Blue Candy for Your Spring and Summer Celebrations

Let’s hear it for the red, white and blue!  The most patriotic of colors are not only a symbol of our great nation, but they remind us of spring and summer holidays that all of us celebrate – Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.

With parades, neighborhood events, and backyard cookouts on the agenda to commemorate these events, you can sweeten the celebration by adding red, white and blue candy to the menu.  Of course, Blair Candy has a great selection of patriotic candy for you to choose from, including:

Red, White and Blue Sour Patch Kids
For those who like a little sour with their sweet, Sour Patch Kids is the candy of choice!  This favorite gummy candy is available in a red, white and blue special edition that’s perfect for snacking on during your 4th of July cookout or while taking in the local Memorial Day parade.


Red, White and Blue Candy Corn
You don’t have to wait for Halloween for one of your favorite fall snacks!  We have red, white and blue Candy Corn in bulk 2.5lb bags that are also great for candy buffets and gift bags, or just for placing in a big bowl at your BBQ for all your guests to enjoy.  If you’re a Candy Corn fan, these are a great way to get your fix in before Halloween!


Red, White and Blue Chocolate Balls
No celebration would be complete without chocolate, so be sure to grab a 2lb bag of our Stars and Stripe themed chocolate balls that are all decked out in their patriotic best.  Each one is individually wrapped perfect for candy buffets and gift bags.  Each bag contains over 140 balls.


American Flag Wrapped Mints

Who doesn’t enjoy a mint after dinner?  We never say no to one, that’s for sure.  These individually American Flag wrapped mints are great not only for your own red, white and blue themed event, but for restaurants as well!  Each bag contains 56 delicious buttermints mints.


Red, White and Blue Sixlets
If your event is featuring a candy buffet, many of the candies we mentioned above are great additions, but don’t forget the Sixlets.  Available in red, white, and blue, these candy coated chocolate balls can be placed in candy dishes or on a tiered display that will definitely be a focal point of your celebration.


Whether you’re looking for cheap parade candy, candy for your candy buffet or summer picnic, let us help you choose the right selection that everyone will enjoy.  Feel free to contact one of our candy experts to help with your event.

Create Your Own Backyard Candy Buffet with these Sweet Ingredients

Planning a summertime backyard BBQ is fun, but it also takes a lot of work. You have to put together your list, head to the grocery store, lug everything in the house only to realize you forgot the potato chips.. and then there’s the cooking and cleanup!

While it takes effort, it’s also a lot of fun. But you know what’s even more fun and takes a whole lot less work? Creating your own “Backyard Candy BBQ,” of course! That’s right, you can plan your own backyard candy buffet without ever having to light up the grill or cook Uncle Orville’s burger to the right temperature, with our summertime sweets.

Let’s go over the menu:


From the Grill

No BBQ would be complete without everyone’s favorite – hot dogs! Our Gummy Hot Dogs are what everyone will be craving and there won’t be any argument about whether ketchup or mustard belongs on one of these weiners!

You can’t have hot dogs without burgers, so we’ve got you covered! Mini Gummy Burgers are a big hit year-round, but even more so in the summer. These stackable gummy treats are great to eat whole or piece by piece!


From the Oven

Now we know there may be a few of your guests who don’t like hot dogs or burgers, so why not give them pizza! Gummy Pizza of course! You didn’t think we’d leave out this all-time classic, did you? These five-slice “pies” may just be better than the real thing.


Side Orders

You can’t have burgers and hot dogs without a side of fries, right? No need to get the deep fryer out for these! Gummy French Fries are both sweet and sour and absolutely a delicious addition to your summer soiree.


Dessert

No party is complete without dessert. Now you may be thinking, “after all this candy what could we possibly have for dessert?” More candy, of course! This time in the shape of Gummy Cupcakes. They come in wonderful flavors including orange, strawberry, pineapple, and banana and have a spongey vanilla center just like the real thing.


What do you think of this mouthwatering menu? If you’re looking to add even more delectable bites, be sure to check out our complete selection of backyard snacks for something that everyone on your invite list will enjoy.

Does your little girl or boy love mermaids? When you are planning a mermaid-themed birthday party for your child, here are the three ingredients to make the party truly amazing:

Decorations

Every good theme party has fantastic decorations. To save money and make the party more fun, have your children help you create and hang the decorations. Cut sea creatures out of construction paper and hang them around the room, use green and blue streamers to simulate seaweed and water, and find ocean-themed plastic table cloths at the local party store.

Food

No birthday party is complete with delicious food. Mermaid sugar cookies and mermaid tail cupcakes are a great addition to any mermaid party. For added fun, have the birthday boy or girl help you make the special treats.

Party Favors

Your child’s friends will have tons of fun at your mermaid party, so send them home with a party favor so that they can continue the mermaid fun at home.  Fill colorful baggies with oceanic candies like

Swedish Fish Tails and other gummy fish, gummy sharks, and more. When you need candy and snacks for your child’s birthday party, visit BlairCandy.com. We offer delicious and affordable candy in bulk for any occasion.
