Mail Order Gourmet Hard Candies for 100th Birthday Party Gift?


I'm headed to a 100th birthday party in a few weeks and the guest of honor's favorite thing in the world is hard candy.

Any ideas for something unusual? I was thinking about having her name put on PapaBubble's hard candies in the horchata flavor, but it takes too long from order to delivery.

Thanks for your suggestions in advance,

  1. Check this site:

    You could package it in a cute way ie, colored children's sand pail with a stuffed animal, etc, etc...or a basket with a plant surrounded by mounds of hard candy.

      1. One more option for you, I noticed you're in Flushing. If you're ever near Chinatown you can sample hard candy at Aji Ichiban, they have a large assortment. Watch out for the Durian ones, you might ask someone there (unless of course you or she loves it!).
