Getting your ideas together for a candy buffet and want to know how much candy you’ll need for all the guests? The key is to buy enough candy for everyone, but not to overspend. It's important to know if the candy buffet is the highlight of the event, or for people to take home small bags as party favors. A big misconception is that only kids eat candy. Not true! Candy is a popular treat for people of all ages, so keep this in mind when planning. And, remember, it’s better to have too much than to have half-filled jars, or to run out too soon. With our tips, you can easily determine the right amount of candy to buy. For more information, watch our short video: How Much Candy to Buy for a Candy Buffet, view our How Much Candy? infographic for tips and tricks.
