It's National Caramel Day!

Caramel is a tasty treat used for a variety of purposes. It is a delicious topping on ice cream or custard or the perfect filling for candies and chocolate. It is also a delightful flavor of puddings, desserts, and even coffee! The color of caramel can range from beige to dark brown. High quality caramel is usually made with butter, brown and white sugar, heavy cream, and other flavorings.

Soft caramel candy was invented in America, but the exact date and location is unknown. Americans first started producing hard candies around 1650 by boiling water and sugar in kettles over a fire. During the 1800's, butter and milk were added to the recipe and thus, soft caramel candy was created.

Following its invention, candy manufacturers all over America began mass producing the caramel candies. In fact, Milton Hershey's first business was actually the Lancaster Caramel Company!

To celebrate National Caramel Day, enjoy some of your favorite caramel candies or try making some of your own homemade caramel! Here's my favorite...

Have a Sweet Day!

National Candy Day!!

There are thousands of different type of candy, all with their unique flavors, taste, and history. For example, did you know that Tootsie Rolls were created by Leo Hirshfield of New York in 1896? He named them after his daughter's nickname, "Tootsie."

Candy isn't just for kids either! Americans over the age of 18 consume approximately 65 percent of candy produced each year. Candy is also a favorite treat worldwide. Though the average American eats 25 pounds of candy each year, the average person in Denmark eats 36 pounds each year!

Whether you like chocolate candy, gummy candy, or super sweet and sugary candy, celebrate National Candy Day with your favorite types of candies!

National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day!

Chocolate-covered cashews, almonds, or macadamias? Take your pick, it's National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day! Nuts have been a part of people's diet for thousands of years. Archeologists recently found several variety of nuts buried deep in a bog that dated back 780,000 years ago!
Since their discovery, humans from all different regions around the world have been enjoying the delicious and nutrious benefits of nuts. The ancient Greeks and Romans were fond of the walnut, Native Americans enjoyed the pecan, and the ancient Chinese placed the hazelnut among the five sacred nourishments God bestowed upon human beings.

When chocolate was first invented during the 17th century, it only seemed natural to put these two delicious foods together into one amazing snack. Celebrate National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day with your favorite chocolate and nut combination! So have a bag-full-o-chocolate-covered-nuts!

Can I design and create my own Candy Buffet?

Most people who have tackled a candy buffet alone end up spending the same amount or more money than if they had hired a professional.
Consider this--if you create your own candy buffet table, you will need to purchase specialty glassware (at least 10 pieces), table accessories and props to make your display attractive, ribbons and signage, candy scoops, candy bags, containers/bubble wrap/packaging to transport your candy buffet to the event location and the candy itself (with no vendor discounts).
Additionally, you will invest tons of hours canvassing the stores for your supplies, researching candy prices, designing and practicing the set-up of your display, washing and wrapping your glassware, hauling your supplies into the venue, setting up your display, breaking down the display at the end of the event, rewashing all glassware and figuring out what to do with all of your containers now that the event is over. Whew, that sure was tiring!
Let us take care of the details for you so you can enjoy your event!
