Decorate your next candy buffet with purple, the color of kings. Centuries ago in the city of Tyre, it cost 9,000 mollusks for just one gram of purple dye. Only the rich kings and queens could afford to purchase and wear purple fabric, which is how it became associated with royalty. Today, anyone can afford to buy purple candy, but the color still adds a sense of nobility to any event. Beautiful shades of purple M&M's, lavender sixlets, and vibrantly purple rock candy can add beautiful color to any event without disrupting the atmosphere. It's a taste and sight you and your guests will love!
