Sweet Success! Our Recommendations for the Best Graduation Candy!

May 16, 2017

We have plenty of Pomp and Circumstance every day at All City Candy, but there's extra cheer in May and June when graduation season is in full swing. Whether you're hosting a graduation party of your own, attending someone else's, or both, All City Candy has plenty to help you celebrate your favorite grad's sweet success!

Without further ado, we present 10 items you must consider when shopping for graduation candy:

#10. Bulk Foil Wrapped Candy

Bulk Foil Wrapped Candy

We admit, we're cheating a little bit here. This isn't "one item." In fact, we have hundreds of different foil wrapped candies to suit every mood, taste, and color scheme. So, what do they have to do with graduation? They're the foundation of your candy buffet, of course!

If you're hosting a graduation party, there's nothing that will get your guests more excited than a colorful table covered with every candy imaginable, including candy in your grad's school colors. It's a spectacular and easy way to make your party a memorable one. Check out our handy guide to candy buffets here.

#9. World's Largest Gummi Bear

World's Largest Gummy Bear

Does it have anything to do with graduation? Not really. Is it a gift they'll be talking about for years to come? Most definitely. This gargantuan bear weighs in at nearly 5 pounds and is enough to share with 50 of your closest friends. Make a little paper cap for him and you're good to go!

#8. Candy Jewelry

Candy Jewelry 

Is your favorite grad going into or graduating from a fashion design program? Treat them to a few of these very tasty accessories. You never know what they might inspire. Even if you don't have a future Tim Gunn in the family, nobody can resist wearable candy! 

#7. Jelly Belly Mini Bean Machine

If your grad is going to college, this is the ultimate dorm room accessory (and it might help them collect enough quarters to do laundry once in a while). If they're heading into their first job, it'll look terrific on their desk. One thing's certain: Whoever has candy available is going to be mighty popular. So give 'em a boost up the social ladder with this unique gift!

#6. Book Worms

We can't promise that these fun gummies will turn every kid into a straight A student, but we think they'll be a nice reminder that you're not supposed to visit the library for the first time during finals week. And for the student who really is reading all the time, these are the perfect companion to their latest book.

#5. Harry London Buckeyes

Anyone heading to Ohio State University in the fall needs no introduction to these yummy treats. But for those of you who do, check out our recent blog post on this Ohio classic, or All City Candy Product Review- click here!

#4. Candy Blox

Any engineering student would get a kick out of these tart and tangy candy blocks that'll remind them of how far they've come in their quest to build the ultimate masterpiece. Plus, a bowl at each table will entertain young and old guests alike!

#3. Gummy Pizza

Gummi Pizza at All City

I don't think anyone's ever declared pizza the official food of college students, but it might as well be. Whether they're heading to a dorm or finally moving out of one, they'll appreciate this twist on the fifth basic food group!

#2. Good Luck Smartie Pants Smarties Treat Bag

The name says it all. One of these simple gifts will remind your grad that you're rooting for them every time they reach into their candy drawer. It might not seem like much, but it's a welcome reminder in the middle of an all night study session!

#1. All City Candy's Graduation Poem Gift Bucket

Graduation Candy Bar Poem Gift Bucket

Surprise! It's a ready made candy treat straight from our shop. With 10 popular candies inside and a punny little poem on the front, the only hard part will be giving it away! Check out the video below for all the details:
