How To Have A Candy Tasting Date Night?
Now that you have your blindfolds, candy selection, and scorecards it’s time to put the candy tasting date night together.
Candy Tasting Date Night Setup
Transform your dining area or living room into a candy wonderland. Lay out a variety of candies on plates or in bowls. Our favorite way to organize this is by color. So if you use Skittles or Starbursts for example – put all the same color in one bowl and then number each of the bowls.
For extra romance – arrange flickering tea light candles, dim the lights, and play soft music to set the perfect ambiance.
Blind Candy Tasting
Decide who is going to go first on this candy tasting extravaganza. Whoever goes first puts on their blindfold while the other keeps track of their guesses on the scorecard.
Player 1 is the first candy taster and Player 2 is the second.
Playing the Candy Tasting Game
Take your partner blindfolded through each of the numbered bowls of candy having them guess the flavor, color, and type.
As you taste each candy blindfolded, the goal is to identify the flavor, color, and type of candy.
Write down your partner’s guesses one by one. For every correct guess they make they will receive one point.
After your partner has made their way through all the candy bowls – it’s time to switch.
Be sure to change up the order that Player 2 tastes the candy so that they have to work just as hard to figure it out.
After Player 2 completes all their candy tastes and guesses, tally up your results to see who is the candy tasting winner!
Tip: Come up with a fun prize for the winner. Before you and your partner begin this candy tasting test game – decide what the winner will get. This could be anything from a massage to dinner, or even getting to eat the rest of a certain candy!
Free Printable Candy Tasting Test Sheet
To make your candy tasting adventure even more enjoyable, we’ve prepared this free printable candy tasting test sheet.
This sheet includes spaces for recording the candy’s color, flavor, and type.
You can download and print multiple copies to use for your candy tasting date night or to use at a party. Simply enter your name, email, download, print, and enjoy!
Host A Candy Tasting Party
Why limit the fun to just you and your partner? Host a candy tasting party with friends and family to share the joy.
You can use these free printable candy tasting test cards for more than just your date night candy game.
For a candy tasting party – set up multiple tasting stations, each with its own assortment of candies. We still like sorting them by color and numbering each bowl to see who can guess the flavor, color, and type of candy.
Have your guests partner up as they make their way through each of the tasting stations. Player 1 tastes the candy while Player 2 records the guesses – and then switch!
This game creates a fun and friendly competition by scoring each candy and tallying the results to crown the ultimate candy connoisseur of the party.
