The time has come…the intergalactic online candy company Candy Galaxy has busted out of its old warehouse and landed in an enormous candy coated warehouse. Since opening it’s doors in December 2011 Candy Galaxy has experienced rapid growth and we are extremely happy to be where we are. Owner Jonathan Murrell describes the new building as “a huge step forward for this company. Moving to a beautiful new warehouse with plenty of room to continue growing is a blessing.”
The growth for Candy Galaxy could not have come at a better time for the company. Alex Neubauer our Customer Service manager articulated that “we needed this move more than anything, we were bursting at the seams in our old warehouse.” And after speaking with many of the other employees at Candy Galaxy it seems that everyone is excited about the opportunity to help even more customers find the candy they love online. The moral around Candy Galaxy is at an all time high with all of the employees expressing loads of excitement about our new space.
July 4th is just around the corner. Whether you’re planning on throwing the year’s biggest party or simply hosting a backyard barbecue, a patriotic candy buffet can be the pièce de résistance for any event.
I am not the biggest fan of chocolate. Yeah I said it, me one of the candy gurus at candy galaxy doesn’t “LOVE” chocolate. I am a peanut butter guy, so chocolate is good but it doesn’t touch peanut butter. And if I eat chocolate it will probably come in one or two forms, with peanut butter or with nuts. More precisely nuts drenched in chocolate, so when I got the idea to review sunbursts I jumped at the chance.
So sunbursts, what are sunbursts? Sunbursts are unshelled sunflower seeds smothered in a chocolate candy shell. They are available in most colors and will make for a perfect addition to any candy by color event and especially candy buffets. And I must say they are delicious! I love the flavor match up with the sweet chocolate and salty sunflower seeds. The flavors tend to really balance eachother out, and there isn’t too much of either flavor making the partnership one made in heaven.
Spring is a time for all things new… which means you might find yourself hosting (or at least attending) a baby shower this season! Here’s some ideas for including candy in this spring’s celebrations:
Baby Shower Candy Buffets
Candy buffets are perfect for baby showers because they can serve as the dessert and as part of the décor. Blue candy buffets are perfect for boys on the way, and for girls there are plenty of pink candy options to choose from including Pink Gumballs. For mommies to be who would rather keep things a surprise, there are still plenty of candy buffet options: try including yellow or green with a neutral candy like white or gray, and continue those colors throughout the rest of the shower décor.
May and June are party months, which is why we’re loving this candy themed wedding shower from Martha Stewart Weddings. A candy themed party is a great idea for baby showers, engagement parties, kids birthday parties and wedding showers coming up in the next few months. After all, who doesn’t like candy?
How to Establish a Candy Theme
Luckily, establishing a candy theme is pretty easy (and affordable): all you need to do is incorporate candy creatively throughout the décor and refreshments. Choose fun, bright colors—and don’t be afraid to use a wide variety of color. Since candy is the theme rather than a specific color palette, any candy is fair game.
In a candy-themed party, candy should show up everywhere—from the dessert buffet to the artwork! (Gum was used to create this candy art for a wedding shower: try using chiclets, jelly beans or Georgia Gems to create your own candy art). For dessert, how about a rock candy cake or cupcakes? All you need is a cake with basic white icing (or cupcakes with white icing) and some rock candy. Check out these tips for making your own rock candy at home, or buy any flavor you could possibly want from our selection of rock candy.

Have you ever had a Goo Goo Cluster? Have you even heard of this little jewel? We here at Candy Galaxy love our Goo Goo Clusters and we think you will too. These delicious treats hailing from the beautiful city of Nashville, TN are sure to heal any chocolate lovers sweet tooth.
Standard Candy Company began on First Ave in Nashville, TN in 1912. It all started when the first ever combination candy bar was created in a Copper Kettle at this same location. The mixed candy bar was a round heap of milk chocolate, peanuts, a marshmallow nougat and caramel. This marked the formation of the first Goo Goo Cluster candy bar. The Goo Goo Cluster was the first candy bar to come in a round shape rather than a square shape and is also the first bar to contain a mix of this many ingredients
