Sometimes you can find a really good price on salt water taffy used to have a lot of great bulk candy ideas… have not been on in a while though. Also, maybe try going to a BJ’s or Costco? They have a lot of bulk candy for cheaper… goobers, etc.

Definitely OrientalTrading! That’s the candy we used for our favors!

We did a sweet n salty snack buffet.  I baked cheese straws, cake pops, made dipped pretzels (honey mustard, white choc), made savory chex mix, white choc chex mix, and caramel chex mix (my own caramel recipe).  My guests loved it and since everything was packaged, they were able to take snacks home with them on the plane.  We had an open bar, so we figured no one would want to eat candy.

@MissCountryGirl727:  We are doing a popcorn bar!! If you would consider switching to just that it was pretty cheap.  We have about 110 guests qnd popcorn was a little over 100.  Or maybe you can do popcorn and have stuff for them to add. M&ms, marshmellows, chocolate chips, etc…
