How many times have you been happily munching away at candy, only to discover that the sweet deliciousness has already run out, and you’ve been left licking your hand for the past three minutes? We’ve all been there. So until we find a way to create a Willy Wonka-esque Everlasting Gobstopper, assuage your desires for infinite amounts of sweetness with some of our GIANT candy products! They’re the gift that keeps on giving, certain to make your holidays BIGGER and better than ever!

If you love gummies but hate facing the moment the bag runs out, then turn instead to some of our mega-sized chewy treats! Clocking in at 4.5 pounds, Astro World’s Largest Gummy Bear is over 1,000 times the size of the gummy ursine average. That makes for quite a bit of snacking! And this 2-Foot Green and Red Gummy Worm is a soft and squishy replica of his soil-bound brethren… only this guy’s about 125 times larger and far more delicious!

What’s better than a Sugar Daddy Caramel Pop? Why, an entire pound of Sugar Daddy Caramel Pop, of course! Same goes for this larger-than-life 4-Inch Jawbreaker — it weighs about 2 pounds, so discovering a way to eat it might just take some advanced astrophysics. And if you’re starting to bore of plain old pops, take a look at this Giant 9-Inch Psychedelic Swirl Lollipop! Because there’s nothing less boring (or more awesome!) than a sucker bigger than your own head. (Plus, giant candies make great gift ideas)!

FIDM’s Cool Candy Store Design (for a Good Cause)!

suGAR diSHStudents from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) recently created a candy-themed table for a good cause… and guess whose candy they used! Beginning as a project in a design class this summer and continuing on throughout the break, the installation of the space took place last week for a Dining By Design event in San Francisco held for DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS). This community service project (one of the city’s most highly anticipated high design charitable events) showcases the talent of top designers who create one-of-a-kind dining table installments. If you can’t tell from the pictures, this table-scape was created to resemble a sophisticated urban hip candy store — and it’s awesome! Thanks for letting us be a part of a great cause, FIDM!

Check out their blog here, and more pictures below!

Party like a Pilgrim!

It’s important to give thanks on Thanksgiving. Come to think of it, we’re pretty sure that’s how the holiday got its name in the first place. So what’s the very best way to do so? Well, by eating, of course! By stuffing your turkey with stuffing, and then stuffing yourself with turkey. By making sure you have a pile of potatoes and gravy giant enough to last you through to the 4th quarter of the game. By loading up your dessert plate with enough sweets and treats to give even the largest linemen a sugar rush. And this holiday, why not up the wow factor at your party by decking out your dessert table with autumn-themed sweets?

First off, be sure to accent your display with the taste of fall. Mini Chattanooga Pecan Pies and Cranberry Bog Frogs (made with real berries plucked fresh from the bogs of Cape Cod!) make a delicious addition to the typical pumpkin-themed smorgasbord.

Always remember to include some confectionery turkeys for good measure. Exquisitely designed hard candy Turkey Lollipops are hand decorated with icing, and they look fantastic in any centerpiece display.

Adorable Bubblegum Turkeysalso make great place settings and table decorations. Invite these big birds to your party, delight in their festive presence, then gobble them right up!

And of course, no Thanksgiving celebration would be complete without a little bit of pigskin. These Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Footballs make just as fantastic a dessert as they do an adornment. And Jawbreaker Football Helmets will be sure to spruce up the chips and dip table whilst keeping all the kiddies entertained at the same time!

However you choose to celebrate, always remember to party like a pilgrim and show thanks to your tummy with a collection of themed sweets!

Eight SWEET Nights — a Hanukkah Buffet!

Eight-Sweet-Nights-blog

With Hanukkah beginning early this year (November 27th!), it’s about time to start making your preparations for the Festival of Lights. Before the 20th century, people didn’t really do much decorating for the holiday — aside from a beautiful metalwork menorah, adornments weren’t really an important aspect of the celebration. Luckily, this has all changed! These days, decorating with family and friends is one of the happiest of holiday traditions… and nothing lights up a room quite like a festive and spritely candy buffet! Read on to learn how we fashioned ours!

Tired of the basic spread of latkes and bimuelos? This year, incorporate confectionery embellishments into your buffet layout! Shining with the hues of the Israeli flag, these blue and silver hard candy discs make the perfect backdrop upon which to build any display. And remember to add some blue and silver Hershey’s Kisses to enhance your mix with the taste of delicious milk chocolate!

Treats such as swirled Hypno Pops, dark chocolate nonpareils, Pufflettes gummy bites, and rock candy crystal sticks will round out your buffet nicely — fill glass containers with these sweets in shades of blue and white to really set off the holiday decorations.

Next, spruce up your buffet with some Hanukkah-themed lollipops. Chocolate fans will delight in this cocoa version of the Star of David on a stick, while the more traditional pop enthusiast will devour these sugar-frosted gourmet hard candies, each featuring festive, intricately-crafted designs. Use some milk chocolate lentils to prop the pops up in a candy jar and display their beauty for all to admire.

And remember to throw in some milk chocolate gelt coins, festively wrapped buttermint creams, and candy-filled dreidel tubes — you’ll be all ready to have a shamash-ing good time!

It’s Time to Party!

Time-to-partyWant to party like it’s 1999?!

Of course you don’t. That was nearly a decade and a half ago. It’s time to party like it’s 2013, and with the holiday season on its way, we have the supplies you’ll need to amplify your candy buffets and keep the festivities going well into the New Year!

Whatever the party, there’s a pom for that! Whether it be a Halloween bash, winter bonanza, birthday celebration, or bridal shower, you can spruce up any soiree with a flirty and fun poof! Full of pomp and panache, these pom poms are far from pompous. Fluff them up like a spherical flower to hang from ceilings, or unfurl just one half to use as a wall ornament — these poms are a fantastic way to fill the vertical space above a dessert table. From yellow and green to light or bright pink, there’s a color for every occasion, and in two different sizes (8 inches and 14 inches) you can mix and match styles and shades to fit any candy buffet theme!

It’s no surprise that we love candy here at CandyWarehouse.com. Perhaps that’s why we like piñatas so much… we can bash at them with a stick until the candy comes raining down upon our heads like a sweet, sweet waterfall. So this Halloween, why not spruce up your holiday with a piñata or two? Take a bat to this grinning skeleton head to free the candy inside, or invite Frankenstein’s monster to stay for a spell — you’re guaranteed to have a witchin’ celebration!

An Amazing Selection of Classic and Unique Candy Corn Confections!

Candy-Corn-hdr

In the 1880s, a man by the name of George Renninger changed Halloween forever when he invented a three-toned treat he called “Candy Corn.” Each individual piece of that uniquely-textured, chewy sweet was originally crafted by hand. Today, the National Confectioners Association estimates that 20 million pounds of candy corn are sold annually — it has certainly come a long way from its humble origins! In fact, the treat has grown so popular that it can now be found in any number of crazy seasonal forms… and we love every. single. one.

Let’s start things off with the tried-and-true original version. Brach’s Candy Corn, with its creamy flavor, has been a staple in Halloween-loving households for generations. Or, try out Jelly Belly’s take on the traditional treat! Using a 100-year-old recipe, this gourmet sweet is a true taste of candy corn excellence.

Feeling adventurous? Get a little funkier with corn of a different color. These Starburst Candy Corn pieces come in cool, neon colors, complete with a spectacular burst of fruit flavor in every bite! Or, if you love the goodness of fire-roasted marshmallows, try a handful of this S’Mores variety!

And if you’re a creative soul with a penchant for curious candy, we also have the seasonal favorite in entirely unexpected forms. Taste the yummy flavors of that tri-toned treat in handy candy lollipop style! Or check out these White Chocolate M&Ms, coated in the classic colors of candy corn.

There’s a variety of corn for every taste bud this Halloween.

Candy Blood Bags: The Perfect Prom Accessory for the Carrie Reboot

Let’s face it, blood is pretty cool. It’s red and scary, and people get super upset when you dump a bucket full of it on them at prom. But it’s also hard to come by. Sure, there are several liters of it quite literally at your fingertips, but getting it out can prove to be quite fatal. Even if you manage to get your hands on a quantity of real blood, it doesn’t keep for long, it can be full of disease, and it tastes horrible.cherry-liquid-candy-blood-bags-127135-im2

But CandyWarehouse has the solution: Cherry Liquid Candy Blood Bags! Featuring drippingly delectable cherry liquid candy in a very realistic looking transfusion-ready blood bag, these packs of syrupy, sanguine candy fluid are a hemophobe’s worst nightmare.

Imagine coming home from a long day’s work to find a loved one sucking whole blood straight from the bag, claret red dripping down their chin like some hunger-crazed vampiric creature. There just might be some fainting involved.

If you can’t stomach an entire unit of cherry flavored blood in one sitting, there are also Mini Blood Bags Candy Pouches. image-130290

These adorable crimson sachets are the miniature counterpart to their larger cousin and contain just enough sugary blood to scare.

Plus, their the perfect size to toss into your purse or clutch on your way out the door.

See red, but taste cherry!

Candy Buffet Inspiration from Charleston Weddings Magazine!

bohomainLooking for wedding inspiration? Charleston Weddings Magazine recently featured a super sweet buffet designed to brighten up an unused corner of a reception room… and just guess where they got some of that delicious candy? Using colored jelly beans, gumballs, and marshmallows from CandyWarehouse.com (along with some pretty bouquets and a whole lot of creativity!), they managed to transform one dull corner into a fancy and fun dessert bar!

A nifty take-away from the article: Don’t be afraid of color! According to Lisa Thomas, owner of Ooh! Events, “You can always make [colors] pop and coordinate by accenting one shade with its opposite on the color wheel.” Keep that in mind while designing your next candy buffet. We’re so glad to have been a part of this deliciously awesome wedding display!
