This was our breakdown, for 65 people.

  • Giant Pixy Stix – 50 ct

  • Gummi Bears – 12 lbs

  • Tootsie Rolls – 10 lb

  • M & M’s – 6 lbs

  • York Peppermint patties – 175 ct

  • MARS mix (milky way, twix, 3 musketeers, etc) – 10 lbs

  • Sour Patch kids – 6 lbs

  • Twizzlers – 6 lbs

  • Blow Pops – 125 ct

  • Gummi Worms – 6 lbs

  • Dubble Bubble – 3 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.
