Hello Bees! Another sleepless night of wedding planning and an idea popped into my head. My accent color is red and I thought it might be cool to give my guests cherry floavored rock candy (excuse the size) in these cute little 2 inch jars. What do you think? By the way, I never had rock candy before, so I need honest oppions please

oh i think it is a cute idea. If you have a lot of younger guests ( im thinking 35 and under) I think it would be a hit with them especialy if you find some cleaver wording to tie it it

It’s a cute idea but getting it out of the jar to eat it would be difficult. Maybe instead get the rock candy sticks?

Thanks, I going to also look into other candies. I think the rock candy might stick together if it gets hot. Same with mike n ikes and Swedish fish. I never had jelly beans (lol I know, I’m so deprived), I would do m&ms but some of my guests cant have chocolate. And they are so expensive! It was almost $200! I really would like skittles (lol I’ve tried those) but apparently they are not available in custom colors like m&ms. I better go do some homework and eat some candy.

@oneovakind: I better go do some homework and eat some candy.
You’ll have so much fun doing that!
Rock Candy is not a favorite and not popular… so I don’t know how that will go, but I do like the idea of those tiny jars!

You might try this website. You can order candy by the color. Some of it is expensive though, but if you’re just putting it in those little jars you might not need too much;

The rock candy looks pretty buy you all are right, I better go eat some candy. I really think it will melt together. I am very close to buying skittles and plucking all of the red ones out.

I would suggest some candy trials to see what works and what doesn’t. Rock candy really isn’t very popular, it’s why it is often only used as an accent type addition to most candy bars.
One way to look for inspiration would be to hit up your grocery store in the bulk candy aisle. get little samples of each, they shouldn’t cost more than a few cents a piece. Then you can compare and even see how different types look next to each other if you’d like to offer a variety of choices to guests.

i’m having a picnic themed reception and as part as the centerpieces I will have individually wrapped rock candy sticks in flower pots for people to take
Sorta like in the picture. but i used flower pots instead of the mason jar
