Bulk candy...where can I buy some?

get ur grub on Feb 2, 2007 11:23 PM

I went to Ben Myerson Candy Company, in downtown LA, last week (on a tip from a fellow Chowhound) and there was a sign up that read Not selling candy and candy store closed.

I'm looking to buy some candy in bulk (peach rings, chocolate covered gummy bears, novelty candy, m+m's, etc.) for an event. I would like to have a candy table where guests could make their own candy bags, like at Sweet Factory in the malls.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

      Smart & Final is where alot of the Little Leauge and other "snack bar" places get bulk. Pretty good selection of all that strange gummy stuff- some indiviual wrapped for "re-sale" and some just in tubs

        Go to the L.A. Farmer's Market. There's bulk candy there, plus a bunch of other stuff.

                  Venice Farms has bulk candy in plastic containers by the pound (Centinela & Jefferson), Cost Plus, 99 cents store and Big Lots are retailers where you can find good deals on candy (movie theatre boxes, etc.)

                      Look up Garvey candy online. It has a warehouse right near the citadel. Lots of fun to visit. They ship, too.
