Me and FH went to raid the post-wedding candy sales … we got:
Lindor Raspberry truffles – 1 pound 6 ounces
Hershey’s Kisses (Milk chocolate) – 3 pounds
Hershey’s Kisses (Cherry Cordial) – 2 pounds 10 ounces
Gourmet Jelly Beans – 4 pounds
For about $50 dollars – all the candy was half price so it was a good deal! Our colours for the candy buffet are pink, silver and chocolate so it was awesome timing! I can’t wait to do a mini trial run (we have all our containers, so maybe I will post a mock-up pic tomorrow!

That’s awesome! You picked the perfect colors for your candy – I bet pink is easy to find! 🙂

It is right now … we are also going to go on a post-easter raid, and finish off with a bunch of candy from bulk barn, so our buffet shouldn’t totally break the bank!

I had it planned out for months to ambush the stores early today to get the 50% off candy sales. First, I went to our local grocery store and got:
12 bags of peanut m&ms
12 bags of dove milk chocolate hearts
12 bags of caramel hershey kisses
5 bags of valentine mike and ikes
all for $70, which is a good deal considering it’s all name brand chocolate!
Later today, I went to Target (um…only 30% off of bagged candy) and got 12 bags of raspberry filled Hershey”s bliss for about $22.
I’m done getting all my candy…finally!!! Yay for day after holiday markdowns!!
