We had a Thor-themed birthday party for my 7 year old a few weeks ago and we gave out these super cute Rainbow Taffy Party Favors thanks to the kind folks over at Taffy Town. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with party favors. I love how cute and creative they can be but I hate having a bag of random knick knacks cluttering up the house. Lately we’ve enjoyed giving out food as party favors and even though they’re usually full of sugar (which the parents just love!), at least they don’t take up room on a shelf. You can download the free labels below!

So, in case you’re kinda confused about what rainbows have in common with Thor…according to the Norse legend, you can only reach Asgard (where Thor lives) by crossing a rainbow bridge. We had rainbows everywhere for my son’s birthday party! Don’t worry, I know that rainbows are usually (unfortunately) associated with more “girly” things but, of course, that’s absolute rubbish. We’ve always taught our boys that there’s no such thing as boy or girl colors, toys, or clothes. Rainbows should be for everyone!
I’m so glad I was able to work with Taffy Town for this project because 1. they had tons of beautiful colors to make my “rainbow” from and 2. their taffy seriously is so delicious! I was munching on taffy the entire time I was making these Rainbow Taffy Party Favors. My favorite flavor was the watermelon but the lemon creme was a close second. Taffy Town has such a huge variety that you’ll be able to choose between different flavors and still achieve the rainbow look. I went with red strawberry but could have also chosen cinnamon or candy apple. I can’t wait to try their sour taffy next!
As far as making the actual taffy kabobs, the process is crazy easy. Just add one taffy piece from each color onto a wood skewer. You can leave it just like this or continue with this tutorial to package and tag them.
If you’re worried about kids messing with the skewers, you can always add a thin treat bag (the ones for chocolate covered pretzels works great) over the taffy and secure in place with a thin ribbon. How adorable would a ton of these in a container be for a Pride Day party?!
Of course, you’re more than welcome to print out some of the gift tags I made for this tutorial. Whether it’s Thor or unicorn themed, I’ve got a tag for you!
Just punch a hole in the corner of a trimmed gift tag and attach to the ribbon at the base of the taffy. Done and done!
From wedding to baby showers, Pride Day to birthday, I can think of tons of occasions to use these Rainbow Taffy Party Favors. Hope they come in handy for your next shindig!
