Summer Candy

Build the Perfect Ice Cream Bar

Bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips | BlairCandy.comSummer is coming to an end and what’s a better way to celebrate all of the fun than with an ice cream sundae bar! Friends and family of all ages will love creating a sweet treat that’s just for them during the festivities. But what do you need to create the ultimate sundae bar?

1. Cone or Bowl? Give your guests the option to build a sky high cone or a packed sundae bowl. Leave out waffle cones, cake cones, and disposable sturdy bowls for your guests to choose from. (Or build a second treat!)

2. Ice Cream. Obviously you have to have chocolate and vanilla, but will you add other flavors? We recommend sticking with the two classics and adding a wild card flavor like cookies n’ cream, rocky road, or mint chocolate chip.

3. Candy. Here’s where things get fun. Save time and energy by buying pre-chopped chopped ice cream toppings like Reese’s, Butterfinger, Snickers, and more! Also, you can easily add baking pieces.

4. Other Toppings. Chocolate Sauce? Marshmallow Fluff? There’s other toppings besides candy that you can add to a buffet. Crushed up cookies, brownie pieces, and fruit are all things that make ice cream even better.

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!
