It’s that wonderful time of year again – summertime! The time where the school buses get parked in the garage and the bikes and patio furniture get taken out of the garage. Many of us parents send our kids to summer camp, whether it’s for a few days or even a month. We have fond memories of lazy days spent near the lake at camp and chowing down with friends in the mess hall, and of course sharing bulk wrapped candy that our parents tucked into our knapsacks. Today, we’re proud to be your affordable Bulk Candy Store, supplying you and your kids with the summer camp must-haves to help make new friends and make for an enjoyable summer camp experience!
Wrapped or Unwrapped?
We often get this question from parents calling us up to order candy from our bulk candy store. The pros of choosing wrapped candy is that it decreases the likelihood of germs being spread throughout the camp – instead of ten kids all reaching in to the candy container and touching the unwrapped candy, they can simply pull out the wrapped candy, and enjoy! Yet, the downside is potentially having candy wrappers left around in the camp, disturbing our natural environment. We typically ask parents to talk to their kids about cleaning up any leftover wrappers, and many parents opt for wrapped bulk candy for their child’s summer camp experience.
Gluten Free or Regular?
Gluten intolerance has become so widely recognized over the last few years, and more kids than ever before are being diagnosed with gluten intolerance. Your child is likely going to be sharing the bulk candy from your bulk candy store order, so we suggest erring on the side of caution – stick with gluten free bulk candy. It’s great to see more and more candy manufacturers announcing that their candy is gluten free, or creating a gluten free version of it. It still tastes just as delicious, but will help decrease any possible gluten-related illnesses around the camp!
We know your child will have a wonderful time at summer camp, and packing bulk candy from our Bulk Candy Store is a great way to not only help your child feel like he or she is more at home, but help facilitate the bridge to fast friendships at camp. After all, candy has a magical way of sweetening up our lives, and we know your child will love having some sweets to share!
