So to tie in with our vintage theme we’re doing a vintage/retro candy buffet. Our colours are also white and navy, not that it’s relevant for this part as it would be quite limiting but in any case this is what we have so far….(some of it isn’t quite retro– the jellie bellies and other penny candy)
What we have so far
Blueberry Jelly Bellies
Wax Syrup candies
Neopolitan Taffy (the big wide strips)
Watermellon penny candy
big foot penny candy
Button candy (rainbow dots)
Candy sticks (rootbeer and fruit punch– catch my drift?)
Aero Bars wrapped in vintage comic book paper
Two expensive so far
What we still need to get
Pez candy & dispensers
dots (the hard candy type)
……..Im running out of ideas!
Anyone have some more suggestions about what else I might consider??? Anything I’m totally missing out on that is a must-have for this??

Oh and I should add that this is for approximately 120 people or so…..I’d like any cheap ideas as well (we thought to tie in with the white theme for decoration we may do a whole vase filled with white marshmallows or popped popcorn) and I should add to the list that we got a bunch of boxes of that elephant candied popcorn!

I think you should get some Werther’s Originals! So yummy! What about Cracker Jack? Or bottle caps?
Check out these two wedbsites – they both have multiple pages full of nostalgic candy. Should give you lots of options!

The candy you have and the candy you are looking to get looks really fun. We are doing an old-fashioned candy bar. I am looking at this site right now for the candy:
They seem to have the best selection and the best prices so far. I still have to look locally though.
