I never see this mentioned so I will. Just FYI…
I went to a wedding with a wedding with a nice blue candy bar and Chinese take-out style boxes to put the candy in BUT…one candy was minty and the next day EVERYTHING was minty, especially all of the gummy candies. I was very sad because I love gummy candies : ) I think the bride would have died if she knew; she worked super hard on everything and who would predict all of the candy flavors mixing?
So my Public Service Announcement is: do not include any mint flavored candies in your candy bar!

Thanks for the advice! My BFF is having a candy bar at her wedding (in ONE month) so I’ll pass along the message!

That’s a great tip! I had a candy bar and I don’t even know if I used minty flavors or not! Eeek!

It’s funny you mention this. My co-worker says that Halloween chocolate has a different flavor than the rest of the year because it’s in a bucket with Smarties and Starburst and other fruity candies. But this flavor mashing will happen with a lot of candy. I had cherry cordial and dark chocolate kisses in a dish for Christmas this year, by the week after Christmas the dark chocolate had a hint of cherry in it too.

Thanks for the message! I plan on doing the exact same thing, take out boxes and all, and had not even thought of that, so thank you! Btw, were the mints individually wrapped? I did still want something minty for guests for after dinner, but if it’s going to ruin all the rest of the candy it’s not worth it then.
