It’s Official: Candy Is the Sweetest Summer Accessory — and These 7 Products Prove It

While hitting the beach, heading to a backyard barbecue or simply enjoying the sunshine are synonymous with summer, there are a few sweeter activities to have on your radar! And, given that June is National Candy Month, we plan on celebrating in style.

To satisfy your sweet tooth and rock a fashion-forward accessory, grab some Life Savers and peach rings. Just bead them onto a string to create a one-of-a-kind necklace that’ll taste as good as it looks. The edible jewelry brings Us right back to childhood. And rest assured, the multi-colored accessory will go great with all those ’90s trends that have made a comeback. Read: butterfly clips, jelly sandals and fringe bangs.

Another idea that’s fun for the whole family? Candy sushi! Whip up some Rice Krispies to take the place of rice and add in long candies like Twizzlers or Twix instead of fish. Roll it, slice it and you’re good to go!

If you’re less about the activity of it all and simply want a sweet summer accessory to satisfy your cravings, check out Candy Club.

The subscription-based service will deliver treats straight to your doorstep. Sign up for the Fun Box, which offers six ounce jars, or the Party Box, which offers 13 ounce jars, and you’ll get six different candy samplers — in chic clear packaging — every month.

And in honor of National Candy Month, the brand is offering a free candy cup through June! Just enter “JUNE” at checkout.

Not sure which cup to get? Allow us to recommend the Watermelon Slices. The sour candies make the perfect summer snack and will look super cute in a lucite beach bag! If you’re traveling to visit family or heading to a dinner party, a candy-themed gift is guaranteed to be a much-appreciated present. Our go-to is the Assorted Cookie Tin from Milk Bar.

With 12 cookies per tin, there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy. Plus, the pink-on-pink packaging screams summer. Our pro tip? Save the box to store makeup brushes, extra lipstick or hair ties!

Now, if you want to show off your appreciation for the national holiday in more ways than one, adding a candy-inspired accessory to your look is the way to go. Check out the Judith Leiber Ice Cream Cone Charm, which is great for date night or a summer wedding. Just string it onto a gold chain and you’ll look good enough to eat.
