Hello Brides and Wives,
We are having a June wedding with a antique country feel in a B&B. Our colors are a pale yellow and clover green. We wanted to use yellow and green jelly bellys as our favors but when we calculated how many we would need it seems way too expensive. I dont want gross cheap candy, because I would rather not give them a favor at all if I had to resort to that.
I am looking for something that can fill my favor boxes (2 x 3″) that will not be too expensive. I am open to all ideas beacuse my fiance and I love all types of candy.

Why not get M+Ms? You can even customize them!

How about the speamint mints (basically the classic peppermint but that is green) and you can incorporate the yellow in a label or the packaging.
I know bags of this stuff is cheap at Sams or Costco.

I second the M&Ms! Get a few bags around Easter time. Thats when you’ll be able to get your pale colors.

Have you considered ordering from a bulk candy store online? This one below has pastel yellow candy hearts in a 5lb bag for $19.50. There are lots of other options and they are good quality.
Otherwise I know that here in BC we have Shopper’s Drug Mart that carries “Life” brand. They make knock-off “Jelly-Bellys” that taste amazing and are only a few dollars for an entire jar. I bet if you do some shopping around you can find some comparable knock-offs that are still good quality 🙂
