    Why am I now just hearing of this? My inner child has needed one of these ( not my outer-she needs rice cakes)!

    Has anyone done one of these? I have found some great photos but I really can't tell how much candy to buy. We are now thinking of skipping big OOT bags to do this instead. Maybe bring some insulin along too just incase we turn anyone diabetic!

    I read somewhere to bring one pound per person. What do you girls suggest? I want it to look full and pretty. We are also going to throw in some popcorn and peanuts to off set the sugar high some what.


    Page 7 now has some "final project" photos!

        We are doing this! We bought about 75 lbs of candy for 65ish guests. I read an article that said not to follow the 1 lb per person rule totally. It's a good guide, but you also have to make sure you get enough of each type to look good. 5 lbs of one type looks a little sad in a jar. Just dont forget the big picture of what the candy will look like.

          great-thanks. How many different types of candy did you get? Are you finding it hard to travel with the containers?

            We got all red and blue candy. Hot tamales, swedish fish, red vines, sour cherry balls, sour blueberry balls, a couple colors of blue jelly bellies, and airheads that came in blue packages. That is all I can remember - think that is it.
            We aren't bringing the containers with us. Just gonna use what the coordinator can get for us.
