With National Candy Month in full swing, the National Confectioners Association and FamousDC have a few twix up their sleeves to keep the celebration going.
This Wednesday, June 22nd, they’ll be hosting an event so sweet, Mr. Goodbar would be impressed. The event honors #NationalCandyMonth – a time to celebrate a classic American manufacturing success story, and the authentic, transparent and fun treats that candy companies have been producing for more than a hundred years.
The guest list comprises the who’s who in politics, media, advocacy, Congress and the Administration. Attendees will rub elbows with the evening’s guests of honor: HariBo Jackson, Lucille GumBall, Michael Jordan Almonds, Britney Spearsmint, and Bon Bon Jovi.
Candy and cocktails are just a few of our favorite things to be featured at Stanton and Greene on Wednesday evening. In addition to chocolate, candy, gum and mints, guests will enjoy gourmet cheeses, crostini and chicken skewers. Just be sure to check your grill before you get your picture taken at the super sweet step and repeat.
And while guests learn more about the #PowerOfSweet, they’ll be sure to Instagram their photos with the PEEPSMOBILE, the Tic Tac Car, and NCA’s own candy-wrapped Smart Car which, you might remember, runs on Skittles and Mentos.
