Saltwater Taffy would be high on my list!  You could only use certain colors if you wished.

Salt water taffy screams summer to me. Flavors like watermelon, lemon, peach…

Candy necklaces, lemon drops, Bazooka Joe bubblegum, peach rings, Circus peanuts…

Circus peanuts get me every time for memories, but not everyone likes though. As well as any “old fashioned” candy found out Cracker Barrel, especially the sanded candies.

Plus random things like Razzles and candy cigarettes.

You could do Jelly Bellys in your colors, I’m doing that for a shower I’m hosting this weekend.

@HappyToBeeMe11:  I was thinking the same thing about chocolate! I love M&Ms – I’m pretty sure you can get them in specific colors, if you want.

@mightywombat:  I think M&Ms would be great, too! 

Chocolate covered pretzels (mini) too.

Salt water taffy, mike and Ike’s, peach rings, sour patch kids… M and m’s… I love the chocolate covered pretzel suggestion… Rock candy… Tootsie rolls…. Chocolate covered nuts… Skittles… Twizzlers (they come in rainbow colors, so you may even be able to make them color coordinate for you)….

For the choc covered options, you could do white chocolate and have it dyed in your colors…

Some other candy ideas… gum balls, jordan almonds, cake pops!!, orange slices, starburts, gummy bears/worms, Really anything in the bulk candy section at a local grocery store (it would be classic and often you can find a variety of colors to fit your needs – lots of gummy sour candies in different colors), jelly beans, hersheys hugs/kisses, 

This site has pics of some classy looking candy buffets…
