Novelty Candy
Kids party candy favor ideas

Kids parties and candy just seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you're
going to throw a kids party, then you've got to throw some novelty candy into the mix.
Novelty candy is also fun for stocking stuffers.

Candy that looks like food? Candy that tastes like something it's not supposed to?
Candy mom or dad had as kids? You'll find that candy that's hot, extra sour, strange,
creepy or retro cool is the candy kids crave, and adults love to share. Here's our top
list of novelty candy to try with your kids for your next party:

Our Favorite Novelty Candies

  • Bean-Boozeled®. Each box contains weird and wild flavors. Tops on the list right
    now is Bean-Boozled jelly beans from the Jelly Belly Candy Co. The gift box
    version of candy and game all in one! Spin the wheel to decide what bean to
    eat. You've been BeanBoozled if you choose a jelly bean that has a strange
    taste. Booger or juicy pear? ! Will it taste like canned dog food or chocolate?
    Strawberry or Centipede flavored? Banana or pencil shavings flavor? Black
    licorice, or skunk spray? Toothpaste flavor or berry blue? Baby wipes or coconut?
    Barf or peach? Moldy Cheese or caramel corn? Also available in favor packs. Dare
    to compare!

  • Grillz Candy: Bring a little "bling" to your teeth with candy grillz (rapper style
    flashy candy teeth)  in "gold" and "Platinum" colors with different designs. This
    hard candy sucker comes in four fruity flavors: peach, sour apple, strawberry
    and watermelon, so kids can suck while they show their bling.

Retro Novelty Candies
  • Cocktail Wienies Bubble Gum. No cocktail party is complete without a crock-pot full
    of cocktail wienies simmering in a red sauce. This mini tin of wienie-shaped gum
    pays tribute to these tiny, tasty morsels. For the kid who won't eat their dinner,
    or the kid who has everything, these novelty candies make great April Fool's Day
    surprises or birthday treats!

  • Meatball Bubble Gum. Having a pizza party, then "chews" this: meatball
    bubblegum, right! Meatball bubblegum would make a fun finale to a pizza party
    and comes highly recommended by candy aficionados. Manny the Meatball says
    "Atsa chewy meatball." How can you doubt the emphatic assertion of a talking
    meatball? Now that's meatball novelty at its finest!

  • Candy Popcorn: Gummy popcorn, right is perfect for movie night. These yummy
    gummy candies are in the shape of popcorn, and even aerated to give them the
    feel of popcorn - light and airy. Assorted fruit and popcorn flavors, but are all
    yellow in color. Eat bite is a mystery from strawberry to watermelon: kids have
    to guess which flavor they are eating!

  • Pucker up for Wax lips: Kids love looking at themselves in the hilarious puffy wax
    lips candy. Made of chewable, cherry flavored wax, these wax lips hey're just
    like the wax fangs that were popular in the 1970s around Halloween.

  • Atomic Fireballs. Atomic Fireballs are hot! Atomic fireballs, left, is the original
    super intense cinnamon candy.
