A Candy-themed Playlist for a Candy Buffet at Weddings

Each year, Candy Day is celebrated on November 4. I celebrate Candy Day a little bit differently than just eating candy.

I celebrate by playing candy songs. Not just any candy songs, but songs with candy in the title. These can also be used while everyone is enjoying your candy buffet at your wedding reception!

songs with candy in title

Common candy includes candy bars, like Snickers, suckers, like Dum Dums, and Gummi Bears.

When most people think of candy, they think of Chocolate. However, so much more candy does not have chocolate as an ingredient. Non-chocolate candy includes red licorice, Redvines, Salt Water Taffy, Jelly Beans, like Jelly Belly, and Jolly Ranchers.

However, if you think of chocolate candy, your first thought may have been anything from Hershey like Hershey Kisses, Hershey’s Chocolate Bars, Kit Kat, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Reese’s Pieces, and Whoppers.

You will not find on our list of candy any songs with references to desserts, or types of candy. We will save those for other lists. No song on our list is about lollipops or cake.

However, the best time to play songs with the word candy in the title at a wedding is during the cutting of the cake! Even better if you have a candy table.
