I am planning on doing a candy buffet at my reception for favors. How much candy should you order per person? Also, if you have any suggestions as to the most cost-effective places to get the candy, I would definitely appreciate it! 🙂

This was our breakdown, for 65 people.
- York Peppermint patties – 175 ct
- MARS mix (milky way, twix, 3 musketeers, etc) – 10 lbs
- Pop Rocks packs (2 flavors) – 72 ct
- Rainbow hard candy – 4 lbs
- Rock Candy sticks, assorted colors – 120 ct
so….. it equaled out to like… 60-70 lbs. We did have some leftovers, I would say like… maybe, 5-6lbs left over? That’s a rough estimate. We do have a lot people in our families who are big sweet eaters and took 2 boxes of stuff home, so I’d say what we bought could have easily stretched to 90-100 people.
We acquired most of our candy from a local candy wareouse/wholesaler and Sam’s Club.

Forgot to say… we spent about $300-$350.

Thanks! We’re thinking about 150 guests, so that will be a TON of candy! I’m hoping people will be nice and only take one container per person!
