Hi, I want to know if someone knows where can I buy bulk candy melts on line so my cost will decrease. Because on Michaels and Hobby Lobby they're kind of expensive aren't they?
Thank you

that 30 pound bag is really expensive!!!! it works out to be over $4 a pound!!! i buy just the wilton ones when they're on sale, right now they're on sale for $1.60 a bag, so i usually go and buy as many as i can. i have heard others say they buy bulk packages at sam's club or b.j.'s.

I am looking for kosher certified non-dairy candy wafers. Wiltons is dairy. Can anyone direct me to a good source? It's fine even if you know of a wholesale place as i'd order in bulk anyway and have a tax id #.

Some of the more expensive melts taste better than Wilton. They still aren't real chocolate but they are pretty good just so you know.

If you can find Mercken's Chocolate Candy wafers, I think they are the best around. The flavor and workability is far superior to Wilton. We will be offering it later this fall but for now you could Google it and find a vendor. It usually sells for about $4.00 a pound but it REAL good!!!
