Make A Candy Gram

by Callie

I need to make a candy gram for my cheerleading buddy for nationals, but have no idea what to do.

Please help.
Thank you!

Hi Callie,

It's a great idea to make a candy gram for your cheer buddy! It's really not hard at all.

  1. Choose a piece of poster board (any color will do).

  2. You can glue some ribbon around the edges if you like to make it a bit fancier (maybe in your team colors?).

  3. Print out the "message" and cut it into strips to tape or glue to the poster board. If you choose a light colored poster, you could just write directly on the poster with markers instead.

  4. Tape or hot glue the chosen candy in the appropriate places.

Here's an idea of ways to use the candy in your message:

    Please don’t (Snicker) at my silly card, but I wanted you to know that with you as a cheer buddy, I have a (Whopper) of a time! I wouldn’t trade you for…(100 Grand) Because you’re (Good & Plenty) and one of my best friends. You know how to (Tootsie Roll) with the punches, and you're always there in the (Nestle Crunch). So, let’s keep having (Mounds) of fun and (Razzle Dazzle) everyone with our great cheers.

You can get more ideas for phrases just by looking through the candy aisle of your local store.

I hope you come back here and let us know what you finally come up with. Take a photo and show it off!

Candy Poem For Language Arts
by: Angie from

Antonio, UNO you're a real SMARTIE and definitely not a NERD in school. You've got ZERO enemies and can always make your friends SNICKER. You never take a TIMEOUT from class and always BOOST the spirits of everyone around you. School isn't always a PICNIC and we sometimes have a ROCKY ROAD but it's never a SOUR PATCH for long with you around. When you're playing basketball, you never have BUTTERFINGERS but make a FAST BREAK to SKOR. Maybe you'll become a professional and make 100 GRAND someday. Wishing you MOUNDS of success.

Candy Gram - for the Jr High Grad
by: DlynnsT

Hey HOT TAMALIE, You think you’re a SMARTIE now that you’re a big time Jr. High grad?
Well, I’m (we’er) here to tell you, that you are a STARBURST,
you surpass MARS, and the MILKY WAY. Why your way out
of this GALAXY!

As you go on your way some people might give you SNICKERS,
try to make you feel like a real BUTTERFINGER. If you let them, they
can CRUNCH your dreams and goals.

But this is not for you. You rate next to ZERO! Really, always
remember that you are a cool KIT KAT. There will always be NERDS
that try to push you into a SOUR PATCH, but hey GOOBERS do that
kind of thing. This is not for you! Be a LIFE SAVER and stay friends
with those that are and you will have a GOOD N PLENTY & a WHOPPER
of a time. Remember, whether it’s NOW-OR-LATER, that we love you!
You are worth more then a 1000 GRAND. HUGS & KISSES to you and to all that
have helped you get to this point. Notice the good in life and you
will have MOUNDS of ALMOND JOY. This joy, my friend is the greatest
PAYDAY you will ever know.

With more HUGS & KISSES,

Valentines Day Candy Gram
by: Angie from

That's a tough one when you haven't said anything about what kind of work you do and if the exchange is likely to be with a man or a woman, what age, etc. It takes details like that to really make a personalized candy gram for any occasion.

You could say something like...

    We certainly don't make 100 GRAND working here, but we have GOOD & PLENTY of laughs, which is worth far more. Hope this Valentine's Day you get to have a special date with a HOT TAMALE, but if not, there's no need to fall to REESES PIECES. In that case, consider this Valentine as your LIFESAVER and indulge in some SWEETTARTS or chocolate. Before you know it, you'll be purring like a KITKAT in pleasure.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

Well, that's something to get you started at least. Let us know how it finally turns out! :)

Writing a Candy Poem
by: Angie from

Hi Stephanie,

Do they still have Marathon candy bars in the US? They used to be one of my favorites (chocolate covered caramel) and would be ideal for including in your candy poem for your friend!

If you scroll up this page just a bit, you'll find another Candy poem for a Marathon (in answer to Pam's question) that you can use.

Here are few more phrases you could incorporate...

Running a half MARATHON is a challenge that no GOOBER would attempt. You've got a lot of RAZZLE DAZZLE and I admire you to (Reeses) PIECES. This is a SPECIAL day and I know you're going to do an EXTRA good job! It won't be a PICNIC, but UNO we're behind you all the way!

Well, hope you get something out of that or the other candy bar card ideas here on the site to let you come up with something special.

When you've got it finished, take a photo and add it to the site using the candy bar card form. We'd love to see what you've come up with.

Goodbye Candy Bar Card
by: Angie

How about including some phrases like...

U-NO how much your friendship means to me. We've had some GOOD & PLENTY times with plenty of SNICKERS, and we will have MOUNDS of fun in years to come. After all, I'm not going to MARS, just college! Make sure you TAKE 5 to text (write/call) often on your WHATCHAMACALLIT. I'd be a real NERD to forget you and there is ZERO chance of that. I'll miss you but we'll always be friends for LIFEsavers.

Make A Candy Gram For Your Anniversary
by: Angie

Hi Rochelle,

Your best option is to browse through the candy bar cards here on the site and read some of the cards other people have made.

This will give you ideas of what kind of candy bars you could use and also you can write down a few of the phrases that you like to incorporate into your own anniversary candy bar card or anniversary candy gram. :)

If you are only planning on purchasing the candy locally rather than order online, just go to your local stores and see what is available and go from there.

Either way, you can get great ideas for your anniversary card by reading the many clever ideas written by other visitors.

Happy Anniversary!

Candy Poem Idea
by: Angie

Hi Pam,

How about using phrases like...

I thought you were a NUT JOB when I heard you were planning to run a MARATHON. It won't be a PICNIC, but if it brings you Almond JOY, I'll be here to BOOST you over any ROCKY ROAD. Don't forget to TAKE 5 for a TIMEOUT and water break along the way.
Even if you don't SKOR first place, as long as you don't KRACKEL any bones along the way or sprain your WHATCHAMACALLIT, you'll deserve MOUNDS of admiration and real PAYDAY.
Best of luck!

Hope you come up with a winner. Don't forget to add yours when you get it finished! =)

Ideas for a Volleyball Candy Bar Card
by: Angie

So, you need ideas for a volleyball candy bar card? Let's see. How about something like this...

Our team is RED HOT! When we get in a (Nestle)CRUNCH we can count on you to help us get out of a SOUR PATCH.

We've got a couple of NERDS and a couple of SMARTIES on the team, but we always work together and have MOUNDS of fun.

If we have ZERO points, you jump up with a BIG BLOCK and help the team to SKOR.

We'd fall to (Reeses)PIECES without you. You're a LIFESAVER.

So, TAKE 5 minutes for a FAST BREAK and enjoy being a STARburst.

Well, that should at least give you some ideas and you can take it from there. Don't forget to come back and show off your finished poster. We want to see it!
