I’m curious about this too.  I’ve heard that we should order 1/4-1/2 lb of candy per person, and with mixed candies, I’m not sure how large of a container to use.

It really depends on the type of candy you are having in your candy bar. If you are having more large candy, you will want a bigger container. If you are having mostly small candy, you will want a smaller container. I suggest purchasing one in each of the sizes you are considering and then fill it up with a little bit of each candy, so you can see how the candy fits in the containers. Then you will be better able to make a decision as to which one will work best for you and your guests.

I think a 1/2 pint is fine.. you want them to get a good amount but not a pound of candy 🙂
