With all of the hype over the Star Wars the Force Awakens opening later this month, it got me thinking. There are a million cool toys, games, and even clothing tie-ins with this movie, but I haven't really seen that much when it comes to candy. Sure there are a few brands that are putting characters on their packages, but no one seems to be making special candies that relate directly to the movies.
I've decided that I'm going to solve this problem myself. My only problem is that I haven't seen the new movie, only 5 or 6 trailers. So I've decided to stick to what I know and design some candy treats themed to the older movies (original 3 in fact). Maybe when I see the new movies I'll be inspired to design even more treats, I'm guessing that BB-8 will probably work as some kind of gumball, but we'll see.
Before I start I just want to say that I'm giving these ideas away for free. If you're a candy maker, feel free to use any of these ideas. I have one stipulation though, send me some. Don't just go off making millions of dollars without letting me sample one of my own creations, that's just mean.
There you go JJ Abrams/Disney Corp, while I'm sure you'll be making more money on action figures and other toys, I think these candies could earn you enough money for a new summer home at the very least. Check back after I see the movies (which I imagine will be soon after it comes out) to see if anything from The Force Awakens inspires anything else.
