Ordering 80 pounds of candy!!
Last night, I ordered all the candy for the candy buffet (or at least I think I did) from Amazon. I was planning to order from an online candy wholesaler, but it turns out that the shipping for that wholesaler would increase the overall price by 40%. So, a $200 order would cost $280 to get to me. Well, turns out that Amazon has some great candy deals that fall under the Free SuperSaver Shipping deal that they have (or are Amazon Prime eligible, if you have that- I have the one-year student trial :) ).
I got all the below for well under budget:
(my 100% favorite that I fell in love with when working at the Sweet Factory)
I think I ended up with a good grouping of chocolate, gummi, nut, sour, and flavors. I also needed to consider the color situation since I want the candy, when all set up, to look good and cohesive and in line with my overall color scheme.
It was more difficult to determine the line-up than I thought it would be; all the considerations (color, flavor, price) made things somewhat challenging to balance well.
You know what, though?
I'm definitely excited to eat all the candy....you know, to taste test it...in case it's....poisoned.
