Tailgate parties aren’t all burgers, brats, and beer. Bring on the football sweets! These awesome Football Pops are perfect for poking into cakes and cupcakes.
#9. Gummi Candy Corn
Classic candy corn is always welcome for fall parties, but for chewy candy lovers, this year brings a special treat: Gummi Candy Corn. Each kernel is big, too, at approximately 1-inch tall, so this candy provides a huge splash of color on a dessert table.
#8. Apple Cider Candy Corn??
Also new in the candy corn category this fall is a crop of corn in fun colors and flavors like Apple Cider with a layer of red, brown, and cream. YUM!!!
Other flavors include Raspberry, Raspberry Lemonade, Tangerine,Cinnamon, Candy Cane, Egg Nog, and Gingerbread. Think of the possibilities for baking and candy crafting!
#7. Candy Apple Taffy
Remember candy apples when you were a kid? Candy.com has Candy Apple Taffy and it’s a great choice for fall parties. This vibrant salt water taffy can be dressed up in a glass apothecary jar or served casually in favor bags or in a big bowl for trick-or-treaters.
#6. Pumpkin Gumballs
Individually wrapped Dubble Bubble Pumpkin Gumballs are adorable… and perfect for crafting and topping cupcakes.
#5. Twinkle Candy Corn Pops
Vanilla-flavored Candy Corn Pops scream “Halloween!” Each individually wrapped lollipop sits on a long 12-inch stick, making it a great choice for adding height to a candy buffet or centerpiece. Tie on an orange bow to create a quick party favor, or bunch a dozen together for a Halloween bouquet.
#4. Autumn Mix Mellocremes
Hard to resist grabbing a few of the Pumpkin Mellocremes when you see them in a bowl on your kitchen counter or co-workers desk at the office. Candy.com ran a Facebook Poll that showed the majority of their followers did the same thing!
#3. Fall Candy Sticks
One of the best “pops of color” you can get from Candy.com is from old-fashioned candy sticks. Rita’s tip is to stack them on top of vibrant Sixlets in a tall glass jar, bundle them with a bow to make a pretty party favor, or display them on a flat white tray to create instant eye candy on a dessert table.
#2. Zombie Pops
Kids will love these spooky looking Zombie lollipops. The individually wrapped, cherry-flavored lollipops have incredible detail. (Lots of warts!) They’re so gross, yet soooo cool.
#1. Missing Body Parts Gummies
At #1, are bloody bones, severed fingers, brains, skulls, feet, and fangs all in one bulk bag! Imagine what you can do with these gross gummy body parts. Candy.com suggests on floating them in a punch bowl along with yellow gummy chicken feet this Halloween.
