Jelly beans, maybe?

what about something like old fashioned taffy or hand candy or something a little bigger?  Then you would only have to fit a few pieces in each, rather than filling it up to the top with something smaller.

Do you have a candy store in the area?  I would suggest some penny candy.  Maybe something like butterscotch drops or peppermints.  Jelly beans are usually pretty inexpensive, too.  There are a ton of websites that let you buy candy in bulk for pretty cheap.

If you went the M&M route, I would suggest not having them customized and just buying colored M&M’s.  Those are usually much cheaper.

are you looking for a specific color? you could do jolly ranchers, caramels, swedish fish, tootsie rolls, starburst, gumballs, ….

have you checked out candy wholesalers where you can buy in bulk for pretty good prices?

there is sweet services, groovy candies, or candy warehouse

M&M’s are expensive. And they’ll melt if it’s outside!

I would try lemon drops, jelly beans, and other candies that are harder and not chocolate! 

Good luck!

I think Jelly Beans are a good route – you can get them in just about any color!

Keep in mind that while Mars doesn’t seem to think that M&Ms melt – they really do… and might get mushy in the jar…

Super cute idea!
