What is a candy buffet?

The wedding invitation mentioned about a separate counter called ‘candy buffet’ for children. However, I thought I would head there first bypassing other traditional Indian delicacies. Wedding buffets these days include food for all and candy for children is a thoughtful addition indeed.

Instead of traditional Indian sweets and deserts, I think a candy buffet would be an added attraction.

What kinds of candy are typically included in a wedding candy buffet? 

The options are just too many I would guess.  There are hundreds of varieties of candies, chocolates and confectioneries made in all parts of the world.  I read that candy and confectionery products are categorized under three primary classifications that include "chocolate confectionery", "sugar confectionery", and the "flour confectionery", which refers to products that are made primarily from ground cereals. I have seen lollipops shaped like flowers - daisies, tulips or sunflowers..

One could get gold foil wrapped chocolate toffee seashells, fruit filled hard candy shells, or chocolate fish, to match the wedding candy buffet to the reception’s flavor. 

There are caramels that are coated with chocolates, fudges, nut candies, candy corn and taffies, to give everyone their favorite kinds of candies to eat. The hard candy favorites of, peppermint, cinnamon, butterscotch and Jolly Ranchers can be thrown in for those who prefer the long-lasting sweets.

The wedding reception is scheduled on next Friday. Looking forward to it.
