Candy Bars are fun, popular, easy and economical.
Choose your favorite candy or pick candy in your school or college colors. Some candy ideas include:
- M&M’s in your school, college or favorite colors. Or personalized M&M’s with your photo and/or fun sayings.
- Hershey’s Minis with personalized wrappers.
- Jelly Belly jelly beans in your school, college or favorite colors.
- Tootsie Pops
- Swedish Fish
- Sugar Babies
Find large clear glass or plastic jars, vases or bowls. Borrow them from your friends or check your local dollar store or craft store. Large pickle jars from restaurants work great! Decorate the jars with bows or keep them plain and simple. Set out large spoons so your guests can scoop unwrapped candy. Put out small plastic bags with ties so your guests will have something to put their candy in. Or they can make a take-away bag if they want to.
If you set up your candy bar by the front door or backyard gate (where your guests will leave) then they’re more likely to create a take-away bag when they go.
