candy buffet candy?

For those of you who did candy buffets, where did you get your candy from?

I'm trying to order online, but the shipping is INSANE. Just wondering if there are any other options out there. We got some stuff at BJs but they didn't have much of a selection.

    I know it's a drive, maybe  1 1/2 hour, but check out yummies in Kittery MA.   www.yummies.com That is where I will be going a few weeks before our wedding.

    Good luck!

    I got mine at BJs.  We had hershey kisses, reeses cups, mini snickers, jordan almonds, swedish fish, sour patch kids, and m&ms.  I think that's a good variety.

    We do Candy Buffets (www.althatmusic.us/candybuffet.pdf) and here's some of the places we source our candy from:
    -Jordan's Furniture in Reading has great price on M&M's & Jelly Belly Beans...best color selection and always fresh
    -acandystore.com has flat $9.95 shipping
    -dollar tree has Mike & Ikes and pink malt balls....don't buy anything else there....some of their candy is from China
    -Target has big bags of candy (Hershey's Kisses, swedish fish, skittles,etc)at better prices than BJ's
    -Michael's has swirled lollipops and silver foiled candies and candy sticks
    -Cracker barrell has a good selection of colored candies and candy sticks
    -Hannafords has white yogurt covered pretzels for $4.99/lb...these always are gone first in our candy buffets

    Hope that helps :)

    We got our candy from BJs and Walmart as well as Oriental Trading (cheap shipping, cheap candy) and Walmart.  Good luck!
