The Candy Bar Game

the candy bar game

The Candy Bar Game will make your party extra fun for young or old alike.

It doesn't matter what age the guests are, they are sure to love sinking their teeth into this chocolate guessing game.

If you're anything like me, you know from experience that the best way to brighten up any event is to bring out the chocolate!

Okay, I admit it. I do have one friend who isn't a huge fan of chocolate, but honestly, how rare is that???

Most people start drooling immediately when chocolate is on the table, regardless of whether you're offering chocolate candy, cookies, cake, fudge, or even hot chocolate! :)

Take that knowledge of human nature and put it to good use at your next party.

How well do you know your candy bars? Can you tell what chocolate bar you're eating if you were wearing a blindfold? How about if you saw no wrappers but only a cross section of the bar?

Those are the questions you'll be asking your guests when you play one of the candy bar games we have for you.

The Candy Bar Game - #1

You can play two different games using the same candy bars. Start with this candy bar game first and then you can follow it up with the second game below.

You'll need:

  • 16 different candy bars (you can use more or less if you like, just adjust the following instructions accordingly)
  • a tray (more than one if you have a LOT of candy bars)
  • paper and pen for every guest
  • 8 - 3x5 cards, cut in half
  1. You'll need to create a "Master List" that will contain the names of all the different candy bars and a number assigned to each one.

  2. Number the pieces of card (1-16) and spread them out on the tray in a single layer.

  3. Unwrap candy bar #1 and cut about a one inch piece from it so that a cross section (the inside) of the chocolate bar is visible. Place it on the card that says #1.

  4. Repeat step 3 until a piece of all 16 candy bars are sitting on their respective cards.

  5. Pass out the pen and paper to your guests. Tell them to number their paper from 1 to 16.

  6. Pass around the tray (or place it in the middle of the table) and have the players write down the names of as many of the candy bars that they can identify on their paper. No touching the candy bars allowed! You may need to institute a time limit. ;)

  7. To finish the game, read the Master list and see how many each player guessed correctly. The one with the most correct guesses wins.

The Candy Bar Game - #2

If you play the above candy bar game first, you can simply finish that game and use the pieces of the chocolate bars on the tray for this second game. Two for the price of one! :)

  1. Divide the guests into two or more teams.

  2. Take turns letting a player from each team come forward to be blindfolded and subjected to a taste test.

  3. Each player is given one of the candy bar pieces from the tray (NOT in the same numbered order as earlier). Simply pop the candy bar piece into the players mouth and they have to name the candy bar by taste alone.

  4. The team that gets the most correct guesses wins the game.

Important note: Be sure that you are aware of any food allergies before playing this taste test game. Some people are allergic to peanuts, etc., and should not be included.

I hope you and your guests will enjoy these fun candy games for parties. They really are suitable for a wide range of occasions. Wouldn't they be great as a candy bar baby shower game?

Don't worry! If you're looking for a different baby shower candy bar game, we have more to come. Check out our other candy games and find one that's just right for your event.
