Coral is so much more than just a colorful invertebrate living under the sea. In fact, coral happens to be the season’s hottest hue! Perfect for everything from interior design to nail polish, this color is everywhere this summer. So why not dive in and invite it to your next party?

Known for portraying positive energy, relaxation, and adding an oceanic ambiance to events, coral can spice up any room, outfit, or festive occasion! It adds a dash of peppiness to décor without overloading it with the intensity of most warm colors. Because it’s created from a mix of yellow, pink, red, and orange, shades of coral can vary widely, making it extremely versatile! Different versions of coral are compatible with nearly any other color with which you may desire to pair them.

As for candy, we’ve got plenty to suit your color-specific needs! If you’re leaning towards a more pinkish coral hue, Jelly Belly jelly beans in Cotton Candy and Bubble Gum are sure to impress. As well, these Pink Grapefruit Gummy Bears are beary sweet additions to the candy bowl, and chewy Bumplettes Beaded Gumdrops will hit the spot — in both your décor and your belly!

You can find redder versions of coral colors in many watermelon flavored sweets. These Fruity Hard Candies should fill out a display nicely, and Kenny’s Juicy Licorice Twists are a sure-fire win with colored candy connoisseurs. For those with a taste for the tangy, Sour Spanks Chewy Candies will round out your buffet with ease.

And if you’re searching for lighter orange shades of the color, look no further than our Peach Salt Water Taffy and Candy Covered Milk Chocolate Lentils!

So be sure to get your summer shindigs into shape with the shades of the season! For more coral confections, check out this list below. Happy buffet building, candy lovers!

Our Giant Gummy Dune Diorama Gets Internet Famous!

giant-gummy-worm-dune-011

Any readers of the Dune saga out there? If so, you’ve probably enjoyed our gummified giant-gummy-worm-dune-041diorama of Paul Atreides riding the giant sandworm. Our creatives had a lot of fun recreating that scene with our favorite medium (why, candy, of course!), so you can imagine how pleased they were to see their artwork making the rounds on the internet as of late. The scene was composed entirely of candy items, with gummy bears standing in for the Fremen, yellow sprinkles as desert sand, and rock candy playing the role of space rocks dotting the extraterrestrial terrain. Our giant gummy worm is even wrangled by a piece of black licorice!

See what other people had to say at fearnet.com and io9.com, and check out all our images here!

Enhance Your “Promposal” With Candy!

“Prom would be so much SWEETER if you went as my date!”

Are you looking for a date to prom? Gone are the days of bashfully slipping the girl or guy of your dreams a sweet little note reading, “Prom with me?” That, candy lovers, is just not going to cut it any longer. If you really want the apple of your eye to agree to spend a fun, end-of-high-school evening with you, then you’re going to have to go all-out in your display of sweet affection. Hey, you don’t have to be ready for marriage to create one of the dramatic, award-worthy proposal performances our YouTube-obsessed decade has begun to encourage. It’s called the “Promposal” folks, and it’s the only way to go to formal this spring!

Want to sweeten up the idea of the dance? Add a little candy to the whole shindig! Better than regular flowers, we have delicious candy blooms and chocolate roses. One member of our creative team was even “promposed” to back in the day by way of Hershey’s Kisses… a whole display composed entirely of them! But if the idea of roses and Kisses is too cliché for high school romance, try getting more creative by way of giant signs and sassy puns.

eb2f3e7a98131d48c215fc17880fce36

It’s not a real proposal, so why use a real ring? Ring Pops are the way to go!

How about a vase full of gumballs or Hi-Chew, along with a cute note reading “I CHEWS you”? Or maybe try a pile of mints with a letter stating “We are MINT to go to Prom together”! We also like the idea of a a locker stuffed with bags of gummy bears, accompanied by a note saying “Prom without you would be unBEARable,” or an entire collection of Dum Dums announcing “I would be a DUM DUM not to ask you to go”! So get creative and have some fun with your promposal. Just don’t forget the candy! (Because seriously, who could say no to candy?)
