Baby Shower Candy Bar Game

One of the games we played at the baby shower was the candy bar game. I don’t know if you’ve ever had the opportunity to play this game before, but it was a lot of fun and sometimes pretty funny.

In the candy bar game, the host says a word or phrase related to pregnancy or parenting and the players have to guess the type of candy bar that best represents this word or phrase.

Instead of printing a list of the possible choices, I decided to attach the candy bars to a poster board. I used a stiff poster board that I found at Hobby Lobby.

I thought this method worked out really well because people could visually see their options and which choices are still remaining.

Hard to Find Candy Bars

Some of the candy bars were hard for us to find. I actually put Emily and Mike in charge of finding all the obscure candy bars.

They found a lot of them at CVS and Walgreens. You can go on the Walgreens website and look up which stores have certain candy bars.

The Big Hunk is one of the candy bars that we had a hard time finding and we finally found on the Walgreens website at a store a few miles away from us. Mike and Noah went there to look for it and they found it right away.

Save this Baby Shower Candy Bar Game to your Baby Shower Board or your Party Games board.

Rocky Road bar was another one that we had trouble with. Mike and Emily eventually found it at a specialty candy store called Lohmann’s Good Things in Norman.

This game was a big hit at the baby shower. I’d highly recommend it. Like I said, you can modify the list of candy bars to your liking. There are many choices out there for this game.
