“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.

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?)

Calling all our Peeps! How do you enjoy those fluffy, sugar covered marshmallow treats — fresh, squishy, and straight out of the pack? Maybe a few days old and a little stale? Dipped delicately in chocolate, or perhaps even immersed entirely in a rich cocoa coating? Well no matter how you like them, we have a variety of those sugary little morsels of holiday goodness to tend to every taste bud!

Original chicks and Easter bunnies are a staple of the Easter season, but don’t forget the novelty Peeps! A Giant Marshmallow Bunny will add wow factor to any basket, and little marshmallow chicks resting inside chocolate eggs are an adorable surprise for any Peeps lover!

Yellow chicks lightly dipped in a layer of milk or dark chocolate will make any cocoa fan positively giddy with sugary delight. Or for the even more adventurous, try Chocolate Covered Peeps, who’ve been utterly submerged in the sweet stuff! For a more grownup twist on the original, take a taste of Chocolate Peepsters… fluffy marshmallow is coated with a layer of milk or dark chocolate, making a tempting treat that’s just as sweet as it is sumptuous. You can even use Peeps to add some color to your Easter buffet!

And of course, be sure to check out the rest of our Easter Selection for more seasonal delicacies!

Celebrate Spring with an Easter Buffet!

Back in 16th century Germany, children were told a nice bunny rabbit would bring them candies and eggs each Easter if they behaved well all year. So in preparation for the generous hare’s arrival, young girls and boys would create small nests out of bonnets, caps, or baskets, in which the bunny could “lay” his eggs. This custom eventually gave rise to both the traditions of the Easter Bunny and candy-laden Easter baskets!

So what’s even better than an Easter basket? Why, an entire Easter buffet, of course! Read on to learn how to design one of your own!

We filled our buffet with sweet pastel hues and even sweeter candy delicacies, like these seasonal Rolos and Easter Eggs Quins. To create a springtime display sure to delight any and all guests, be sure to stock it with jelly beans, such as these Teenee Beanee delights! And what would the holiday be without a pile of Peeps? Be sure to include some coloful Peeps Chicks and a box of Peeps Bunnies, tucked into vases or laid out on plates for good measure.

Did someone say Easter pops? If not… they should have. Because nothing is more delightful than a bunny shaped lolly! Peppy swirled suckers and delightfully shaped marshmallow pops make a great vertical addition to any candy bowl.

Eggs are another necessity during the spring. So if you must include them, why not make sure they’re delicious? Fill some bowls with colorful Brach’s Bunny Marshmallow Easter Eggs, and watch your guests melt over these oversized jelly beans! As well, Brach’s Fiesta Malted Milk Chocolate Eggs and Reese’s Mini Chocolate Easter Eggs are colorfully delectable additions to any candy dish!

What’s the number one rule of Easter decorations? Never forget the bunny! (Ok, maybe we just made that up, but it sounds good, doesn’t it?) Weighing in at a whopping two pounds, Palmer’s Big Binks is sure to be the center of attention in any buffet! Speaking of chocolate, you should never leave out Cadbury Cream Eggs — they are an Easter staple, after all!
