It’s almost time for back to school! Kids aren’t always excited to head back to their books and classrooms, but you can make it a little easier with some creative treats. When you’re out shopping for all those much-needed items like pens, paper and notebooks, remember to pick up some packages of Waterbridge candy. Our authentic, traditional sweets are made abroad and brought to Canada for your convenience. Use them to enhance every day and make it a little tastier!
#1: Decorate Cupcakes with Mini Allsorts
Our Mini Allsorts are incredibly popular with kids and adults. Whip up a batch of cupcakes to celebrate finishing the first week back at school, and add some Mini Allsorts on top of the frosting instead of sprinkles. Don’t forget to make enough for all the neighbourhood kiddos, too!
#2: Add Traditional Sweets to the Lunch Box
Every lunch should be well-balanced as a meal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little treat as a surprise. Pour a handful of traditional sweets, such as our Waterbridge Allsorts pouches, into a baggie or recyclable snack container for a tasty end to a healthy lunch. Bonus: Many of our Waterbridge candy options offer natural colours and flavours, so you can feel good about serving them to your little ones!
#3: Take a New Twist on Crispy Rice Treats
Do you regularly make treats using marshmallows and crispy rice cereal? The next time, cut up our English Wine Gums into tinier pieces and add them to the mix. They’ll add texture and sweetness to the finished product!
#4: Enhance Your Favourite Flavoured Gelatins
There’s more than one way to make gelatin snacks exciting. Try putting some Waterbridge Jelly Babies pieces before the gelling begins. They’ll float in the set gelatin and tempt even the pickiest eater to finish dinner to get to a light dessert.
#5: Garnish Sugar Cookies
As the weather begins to get cooler, it’s a great excuse to make some sugar cookies with the kids. Give them a plate filled with a mixture of traditional sweets, such as pieces of Dolly Mix and Samesorts. They can be added to the tops of iced sugar cookies to make patterns, designs and even faces. For a very sweet touch, make a plate for your friends and hand-deliver the smiles.
