Sweet Treats

April 8, 2013

I love to put fun sayings with candy for all occasions

Birthdays, Get Wells, Thank yous, Lessons and so on.

Here are some of my ideas for great sayings to go with candy. . .

                      “Don’t BOTTLE your potential, POP the CAP and let it go!”
                      “We give to you the ‘Elly Badge’, for bravery above and beyond the call of duty!”
                         (the paper could look like the grape soda bottle cap, with a safety pin in it)
Mike & Ikes: ”Who cares what MIKE & IKE say, always choose the right way.”
                        “MIKE & IKE can certainly wait, be 16 before you date.”

We love your feed back! so drop us a comment and let us know what you liked and what other candies you would like to have sayings for.
I recently had a request for a THANK YOU to an Intensive Care Medical team and this is what I wrote.

I would get a basket and put the following candies in it. And attach this poem in a card.
Almond Joy, Mounds, Crunch Bar, Hershey Treasures, Skor, Sweetarts, Lifesavers, Rocky Road.
“Some times life’s intensive and can lead to ROCKY ROADS,
We’ll need help from SWEETARTS to lighten the heavy load.
We were in a CRUNCH with our precious little boy,
The loving care you gave, brought us so much JOY.
MOUNDS of weight was lifted when you took the time to serve,
The title of LIFESAVERS is something you deserve.
We are so lucky to SKOR people just like you,
You are truly TREASURES for the awesome work you do.”


We had another request. This one for a long term care facility. This is what we wrote.
 You will need the following candy bars
Jawbreakers, Reisens, Rocky Road, Extra Gum, Almond Joy, 100 Grand, Look, Crunch, Sweetarts
Our suggestion is to get a basket with the candy bars in it and put the poem in a card.
“Caring for people is Jaw Breaking work,
We know that the hours can be long.
There’s so many Reisens we Thank You today,
You’ve been there for us when things have gone wrong.
Sometimes as we age it’s a real Rocky Road,
So we need Extra help from a friend.
That’s what we consider you to be,
So this wish we gladly send. . .
We hope that your life is filled with Joy,
For all of the lives you have touched.
The work you do is worth a 100 Grand,
Because every day you do so much.
You Look after our loved ones,
With a steady and kind hand.
The times when we are in a Crunch,
You are Sweetarts to take that stand.”
Kit Kat, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup : I found another blog with this idea.  It could work with any candy bar really.
Make a card “Thought I’d forget?  Never fear!  I have this (Insert Candy Name here)  for you”
These candies also are used in some of the links below.
Although many of these could be used for school we also did a School Sweet Treats version. Here is the link to that and so many others like church, teachers, saying I’m sorry, sports and Valentines. Check them out!
