Candy Buffet MISTAKES!

I'm tired of seeing so much bad and outright made-up "expert" information about setting up a candy buffet. This is an expensive part of an event and the amount of candy, the types of candy, the right size favor boxes, the correct jars and the appropriate scoops and tongs are all incredibly important components to making a successful candy buffet. So when I see bad advice I call it out!

Layout is Too tight and has too many lids. I only use lidded jars sparingly and only in the back row, really just for show. Lids are difficult and people are toughen them. I agree they make the jars cuter but not worth the tears (or packing) when those fragile lids break.

I give this buffet a C+ because I like the masks BUT 2 gumballs, some weird hygiene looking wrapped candy and gummy frogs is not good for kids! Here are some great green candy that would have been WAY better: Green Apple Gummy Rings (Albanese), Green Apple Sour Belts (Dorval), Sour Patch Green Apples (Cadbury), Green Gummy Army Men (Albanese), Watermelon Jelly Bellies, and the list goes on. (Oh and you also forgot plastic tongs for the gummy and plastic scoops for the gumballs)

Candy bar... In direct sunlight. Incredibly stupid. Those Three Musketeers are all gooey by now and the gummy worms have melted into one big glob. But the problems here are endless and I'm disgusted by the sheer number of bad decisions. (and the fact I see the kids are avoiding it says it all)

You shouldn't raise jars up too high. They are pretty wobbly and it makes it near impossible for guests to reach up and down into the jar to dispense that candy

Candy as colorful as Carnival! OK, its colorful but the #1 thing is taste. Gumballs, Chocolate and rock candy are BORING and not the best thing in a candy buffet (especially when the sixlets are mainly used to support the other two items... (what a mess when people want to get them.) You always need gummy items (Albanese rings, bears, sharks, etc.) and you always need sour (belts, sour patch, etc.) And you might want some nostalgia (jelly slices) "Form Follows Function!"
