Caramel Tootsie Pops: Perfect for This Halloween Party Craft

Halloween parties are a lot of fun. Whether you choose to go with something ghoulish or something alive with fall’s colors, there are plenty of ways to celebrate this holiday. If you’re looking to combine together one of the season’s best flavors, caramel, with a fun Halloween craft, then be sure to check out this awesome Halloween lollipop wreath idea.

Using delicious Caramel Tootsie Pops and a few craft supplies, you can put together a wreath that fits in perfectly with Halloween party décor (it’s also a fun way to give candy to trick or treaters). Let’s just say, it’s sure to be a scream at your Halloween get-together!

What You’ll Need:

  • A wicker or foam wreath core (you can find these at your local craft store)
  • Craft ribbon or curling ribbon
  • Minimum of 50 Caramel Tootsie Pops depending on wreath size.

Directions:

  1. Begin by cutting the ribbon and making it into a bow. To make things extra festive, choose black and orange or orange and purple ribbon varieties. If there’s Halloween ribbon on hand, use that instead. It’s up to you!
  2. Start sticking the Tootsie Pops into your wreath, starting at the top off-center and working your way around the wreath. The pops will take up some space, so feel free to adjust them to make sure that they are distributed evenly. Hang and enjoy!

When your Halloween lollipop wreath is finished, you can hang it up as part of your Halloween décor and have your party guests take a Caramel Tootsie Pop as a favor.

5 Delicious Ways To Sweeten Up Your Candy Buffet Candy

Our team here at Blair Candy thinks there’s no better way to sweeten up a party, shower, or wedding than by having a buffet, filled with tons of delicious Candy Buffet Candy!

You know us as your candy headquarters, as we’re always on the lookout for delightful goodies to add to our candy collection while keeping prices as low as possible. Yet, we also know a thing or two about creating a candy buffet worthy of a first-place trophy, so follow our advice on how to sweeten up your candy buffet!

Decide on a color scheme – even if it’s multi. With so many yummy candies on our huge candy warehouse shelves, it can be pretty hard to decide on which will be part of your candy buffet. Start off by deciding on a color scheme, and choose Candy By Color that fits into the color scheme. If you prefer a Multicolored Candy, well, we’ve got that too!

Decorate your candy buffet. Sure, the candy will take center stage, but add some flair to your buffet by covering the buffet table with a fun tablecloth, hanging up a banner behind the table, and sprinkling glitter throughout the table.

Choose unique candy containers. You don’t have to spend a fortune on glass jars to house your candy. – Think unique, such as using glass mason jars, martini, and wine glasses, and glass bowls to house your candy buffet candy.

Dessert and candy are a perfect pair. Don’t limit yourself to only candy! Set out creative cupcakes and treats throughout the candy buffet. This way, you’re expanding the function of your buffet and using your space efficiently.

Candy centerpieces sweeten up dinner guests. So many centerpieces go unclaimed and unappreciated, so instead incorporate candy into your centerpiece! Choose a popular candy from your candy buffet, and spoon some into a pretty vase or container. Decorate it with a ribbon and faux flowers, and pick a “centerpiece winner” from each table.

Make Summer Fun with these Candy Drinks, Games, and More!

Summer is almost here and it’s time to start thinking about keeping cool, keeping the kids busy, planning some fun family activities, and for parents – surviving until school starts again! But fear not – we’ve come up with some sweet ways to accomplish all those goals and have some fun along the way.

Let’s start off with one of our favorite ways to cool off on a hot summer day. Whether you’re hanging out at the pool, kicking back on the front porch, or staying inside with the air conditioning, nothing refreshes more than an ice-cold glass of Jolly Rancher Lemonade.

To make this cool summer beverage all you need is Jolly Rancher candies and your favorite fresh-squeezed or store-bought lemonade. Take a few Jolly Ranchers, approximately two or three for each cup of lemonade, and place them unwrapped in a microwave-safe glass measuring cup.

Fill the cup with just enough lemonade to cover the candies and microwave on high for 60 – 90 seconds. When the cycle is complete, give them a stir. If the candies didn’t fully dissolve, give them more time in the microwave until they do. Just make sure you stir them up after each heating.

Once they are fully dissolved, transfer them to your favorite glass, add additional lemonade and serve chilled or on ice. Experiment with different flavors of Jolly Ranchers to make a unique flavored lemonade each time!

If the kids are looking for a game to play, we’ve got one that’s fun to play and can be eaten when they’re all played out.

To make a Candy Tic-Tac-Toe game, start off with everyone’s favorite licorice treat, TWIZZLERS. Cut the TWIZZLERS Twists into equal lengths and arrange them into a tic-tac-toe grid.

Then give each player five HERSHEYS KISSES of the same color. Players take turns putting their candy KISSES on the grid until one gets three in a row and is declared the winner. By the way, this is a perfect game for birthday parties!

One of our favorite things to do on a summer night is to sit around a fire and make S’mores! These three-ingredient bites of bliss are so simple to make and are so sinfully delicious. To make smores, gather up graham crackers, marshmallows, and HERSHEYS Chocolate Bars.

To make S’mores, simply place a marshmallow on the end of a stick and heat it over the fire until it’s golden brown. Place the marshmallow between two pieces of graham cracker with a piece of HERSHEYS chocolate. The heat from the marshmallow will melt the chocolate just enough to make it soft.

If you want to make this treat even more delicious, skip the graham cracker and just sandwich the marshmallow between two pieces of chocolate!

Now, one final note! If you’re sending the kids off to summer camp, you’ll want to make sure they have everything they will need to survive their adventure. Socks, underwear, plenty of shirts and shorts, and… candy!

No good explorer ever discovered anything without having a supply of snacks and sweets to get the adventure started. Our Camp Survival Kit is packed with more than 50 pieces of candy and snacks that will satisfy when the craving hits and a convenience store is an hour away!

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!

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 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.

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.

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
