Pink Candy
Candy and snack foods to fit any pink theme party

When you think pink for kids party foods, pink cotton candy comes to mind, as does
strawberry ice-cream and pink frosted cupcakes. And for candy, pink bubble gum is a
must. On the healthier side, there's watermelon and parfaits made with yogurts and
raspberries, strawberries or cherries.
    * Dubble Bubble gumballs original pink color has been around since 1928!

You can have a kid friendly feast with all the pink fanfare she deserves! From savory
selections to sweet treats and confections, we have pink party foods to satisfy your
picky little eaters. We've gathered our favorite princess pink snacks, sweets and treats
as well as more savory selections.

  • Pink candy coatings: Start with some essential pink food makers, like Wilton's
    candy melts, which you can use to dip pretzels, mold candies, coat cookies, and
    more. Try coating  cake balls in Merckens candy coating for an ultra pink look!
    Above, you'll find pink cake pops made with Wilton candy melts.

  • Pink jimmies: Imagine how sweet the cupcakes will look sprinkled with pink
    jimmies.  Pink jimmies are a fun topping for ice creams, too! Try dipping the tips
    of your ice cream cones in a candy coating, then rolling them in pink jimmies. This
    will add such a special touch to your dessert lineup.

  • Make her drink sparkle with pink drink rimmers: While intended for adult
    beverages, these sugars add a magical sparkle to kids beverages. Rim a fancy
    glass with a wedge of lime, dip then serve pink lemonade.
  • See more pink beverage ideas below.

  • Make a magical pink drink. Fill ice cube trays with water, then add a drop of food
    coloring. As the ice cubes melt, the food coloring changes ordinary lemonade into
    a pink potion effect.

  • Pink popcorn: Glaze popcorn with cherry glaze a pretty pink popcorn flavoring.

  • Pink bagel and cream cheese ideas: Make pink bagels by adding a few drops of
    red food coloring to your home made bagel recipe. Serve strawberry bagels with
    cream cheese that has a hint of food red coloring to make it pink. Or make
    strawberry cream cheese spread to top plain bagels or apple ring slices. Adults
    may appreciate a cream cheese lox spread onto a bagel. Strawberry cream
    cheese would make the party extra Pinkalicious indeed.

  • Make pink deviled eggs. Use your favorite deviled eggs recipe, but before filling
    the eggs, soak the white egg halves into the juice of a can of beets for a minute.
    The beet juice leaves a pretty color without the taste of beets. Alternatively,
    place the white egg halves in water mixed with food coloring or keep the eggs
    white, but color the filling. Now that's a wickedly cool idea!

  • Pink Cotton candy
  • Buy cotton candy in bags
  • Make cotton candy at home!

    of lime, dip, then serve pink lemonade.
