So I am thinking about offering custom Candy bars for weddings and such on my website.I have a few questions...
Where is the best place to buy the assorted candy?
What candies are the most popular?
How would I go about pricing it out? Per guest?
I buy some locally from a bulk store, mold some myself and order the rest form Oh Nuts!
argh! Now you know my secret.
Thanks Leah_s..You're the best!!!
Okay..so looking at your site leah and seeing you price per person..How do you know how much candy to order for the event as you say..they get the leftovers but I'm sure you don't want to give tons away...
Here's a 'how-to' link that I came across some time ago that may help you with basic getting started questions..... http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/candy-buffet-table-101
Thanks Indy..the link is very useful...
Bulk Barn is opening soon in Okotoks - probably more of a drive for you than me, because I'm in the SE, but still ... might be worth it.
I did a candy bar for a family party at Easter and although it was a lot of fun it was kinda pricey once I added everything up, so it would be good to be able to get decent bulk candy locally. Have you checked out Superstore?
Also, the restaurant supply stores like Russell Foods have small metal scoops and tongs.
No..I haven't yet looked st Superstore although I have asked before about ordering bulk amounts for cake decorating and they said no...so..Okotoks is too far..I wonder why they chose to open there and no in Calgary..
And yes, the standard is 4 oz per person.
Great..That as least gives me something to go off of...
