Parties are incomplete without a bowl full of lollies! Whether you’re hosting a children’s party or a grown-up get-together, lollies are a great way to keep your guests entertained. However, with so many different types out there, it can be challenging to know what to have and how much to buy. But we’ve got you covered! In this guide to party lollies, we’ll take a look at the different types of lollies, what lollies are in a party mix, and how much you should buy for your party.

Types of Lollies

Before we dive into what lollies to have at your party, let’s take a look at the different types available. The most common types include gummies, jellies, hard candies, lollipops, chocolates, and sour lollies. You can also find sugar-free lollies and gluten-free lollies for those who are health-conscious or have specific dietary requirements.

What Kind of Lollies to Have at a Party

When it comes to choosing candy for your party, there are a few things to consider.

Firstly, you want enough variety, so your guests can choose what they like.

Secondly, think about the age group and preferences of your guests.

Lastly, make sure you have enough to last the duration of the party, so you don’t run out mid-way.

How Much Candy Should You Have at Your Party?

Determining the right amount of sweets for your party largely depends on the size of your guest list and the duration of your event.

A good rule of thumb is to plan for around eight to ten per guest. Remember, it’s always better to overestimate than underestimate – no one ever complained about having too many leftover lollies! However, if you have guests with specific dietary needs, make sure you have enough suitable options available for them too.

Party Mix Lollies

Rather than choosing your own sweets, you can make life easier for yourself by choosing a party mix.

A party mix typically includes a combination of gummies, jellies, and sour sweets. You could also add chocolates and hard candies to the mix to offer a wider selection. The most popular lollies you’ll find in a party mix include snakes, raspberries, milk bottles, jellybeans, and friendship rings. The exciting thing about a party mix  is that you never know what you are going to get!

We have several kinds of party mix lollies, so that’s one thing you can cross off your list.

Tips for Buying and Displaying Lollies

When it comes to buying and displaying lollies, there are a few tips to keep in mind.

Firstly, make sure you buy sweets that are suitable for your guests’ dietary needs, such as gluten-free or sugar-free options.

Secondly, choose those that look appealing and complement your party theme.

Finally, display them in a colourful bowl or jar to make them more inviting and accessible to your guests.


Having candy at your party is pretty much non-negotiable. Remember to consider the age group and preferences of your guests when making your choices, and make sure you have enough to last the duration of the party.
