We learned a lot about what types of candy people love for their It's A Girl Baby Shower candy buffets from our years selling candy online. Hopefully in the list below you'll discover a new candy that will add some flavor and charm either your baby shower candy buffet or candy favors.
It's a Girl Hershey's Kisses are a super popular baby shower candy, almost every baby shower order included these chocolate treats. The only drawback to Kisses is that it can get somewhat expensive if you use them to fill a large candy bowl, however this is a candy worth splurging on. Also, be careful when ordering these during the summer months, you don't want your chocolate to melt while in transit!
Somethings are just perfect, and these Baby Girl Buttermint Creams are the perfect It's A Girl baby shower candy. Just about everyone loves buttermints and the baby girl wrappers are super cute! Also since this candy is individually wrapped no need for any scoops of tongs, just pour them into your bowl and let the party start!
These It's A Girl Bubblegum Cigars make for great baby shower favors. There are 36 individually wrapped cigars per box so there should be plenty to go around. Be sure you buy these from a retailer with a great reputation, you don't want to get a box of old and stale bubblegum! Candy like this usually sit in inventory for a shorter time at larger retailers.
M&M's have always been a crowd favorite and these decorated pink and white It's A Girl M&M's continue the tradition. Note, in this case beauty and delicious taste comes at a price with M&M's being one of the most expensive candy options for candy buffets.

Lollipops are an obvious addition to any It's A Girl candy buffet, and these Twinkle Pops are super cute. The major drawback to these are their very odd shape, the 'sticks' are approx. 12 inches of flexible plastic which is very different from your standard rigid lollipop stick. Also, the actual candy is relatively small when compared to the super long stick. Keep these dimensions in mind when you're considering ordering these.
Pink and White Cupid Hearts are a very, very pretty hard candy that fit perfectly into any It's A Girl baby shower candy buffet. As beautiful as they are they are not as tasty as other candy like Salt Water Taffy or M&M's. Although their flavor is not as strong they still make a great addition because seriously...aren't they just too cute?
Gumballs are a staple for candy buffets, no matter what the occassion. Shimmer Gumballs can add a little extra style and flair to any candy buffet, but note you can also buy pink gumballs without any shimmer. The standard gumball size is one inch which is a good large size that will help you fill up your buffet containers fast.
Chocolate Coins don't have the brand power of Hershey's Kisses or M&M's so they aren't as popular. That's not to say their taste is less appealing, if you love chocolate they you'll love these sweets. The only downside is chocolate candy tends to be more expensive then most other candy and you have to take extra caution if you plan on shipping chocolate during the hot summer months. However it is a baby shower, a special event that surely warrants a little extra splurging!
Salt Water Taffy is one of the most popular types of candy people choose for their baby showers. First, you get a lot of candy for your money and second taffy comes in almost limitless colors and flavors. Strawberries & Cream, Vanilla and Bubblegum are some of the most popular flavors since their colors match an It's A Girl baby shower perfectly. Plus the taste...Salt Water Taffy is suberbly delicious!
Everyone loves lollipops, and these It's A Girl Whirly Pops are fantastic. The only issue is Whirly Pops can be relatively large when compared to other lollipops. These are 3.5 inches in diameter and as good as they might be you'll have to have a serious sweet tooth to eat this much candy all at once! Also, they are usually sold in a box of 12 so you're going to need a whole squad of candy loving attendees to eat them all up.
Jelly beans are a staple in candy buffets and Jelly Belly by far is everyone's favorite brand. For It's A Girl baby showers the most popular Jelly Belly flavors are Cotton Candy, Tutti Fruitti, Strawberry Cheesecake, Bubblegum and Strawberry Daiquiri. That's a lot of delicious flavors to choose from! Many Jelly Belly flavors also come in a shimmer finish in case you wish to add a little bit of upscale style to your party.
Be super careful when shopping online for pink gummy bears - Albanese's Pink Grapefruit Gummy Bears are actually an orangish-pink and their Watermelon variety is a deep dark pink. If you are really concerned about your pink colors matching take your time when examining the product's pictures online and and don't hesitate to call the retailer to inquire more.
