We are planning to do a candy bar for about 300 guests. It is being catered by a candy shop in the area but I feel to figure out what types of candies I want. The reception is in June indoors, but I’m still slightly concered about chocolate melting. We will have little boxes for guests to take the candy home as well. As a guest what selection of candy would you want? It will be serve yourself in large glass jars. They also said they will try to match our colors (tiffany blue and peach) but I’d rather have good candy than matching candy. Ideas?

@MrsN14: We are also doing a candy bar. Our colors are yellow/white and we chose:
(1) yellow M&Ms
(2) white wedding mints
(3) lemon jelly bellys
(4) white (not sure what flavor) jelly bellys
(5) yellow skittles
(6) hersey kisses
(7) some flavor of white gummy bears

If one of your colours is peach, you should definitely serve fuzzy peaches!!!
In addition to fuzzy peaches, we had:
• Jelly Beans
• Cherry sours
• Hershey Kisses
• Mini chocolate bars
• Gummy worms
• Old fashion candy sticks like these:
We had other things too…just trying to remember what else. Hmmm.

Just make sure it tastes good. It could be a beautiful, color-matched setup, but if the candy is bad, then its not worth for you or your guests. If it is indoors, you should be okay with chocolate, especially M&Ms and I agree with jelly bellys. Lots of color variety there.

We had a candy bar as well.
We had Sixletts, kisses, lollipops, rock candy, gummy bears, apple licorice, Fruit Jellies, Heart mints. And a few others. As long as the bar is inside I wouldn’t worry to much about it melting. It should be ok. Here are a couple pics of mine.

@Sweetescape1976: That looks very nice (and delicious!)
Thanks for the ideas everyone! I’m making a list of them to give to the candy company!
