Candy Buffet

Recommended Posts

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!blush2.gif

 

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.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
