Candy Bar Game for Your Family Reunion

Aunt Lynn has shared fun matching games at our family reunions and parties for years.  She has adapted the game to fit many different reunion themes, baby showers, wedding showers and family history events. 


Write the name of each candy bar you will be using on one 5X7 card and the description on another.  If possible hang the cards on a wall with a piece of masking tape.  If you are camping just lay the cards on a picnic table or on a tarp on the ground.  Take turns turning over two cards.  When you find a match that person gets the candy bar that is referenced.

Janie’s fiancé- “Big Hunk”
Grandma- Hugs and Kisses

  2. We played this game at my baby shower & tailored it to pregnancy and babies. Baby laugh- snickers, umbilical cord- twizzlers, epidural- lifesavers. These can get pretty fun at different events!

      • Here’s some additional “baby shower” ideas:
        Anesthesiologist (Mr. Goodbar)

        Delivery doctor (Butterfinger)

        Labor and delivery nurses* (Sweet Tarts)

        Daddy during delivery* (Bonkers)

        Hospital nursery*(Cry Babies )

        Hospital bills (100 Grand)

        10 pound babies* (Whoppers)

        Breast engorgement (Mounds)

        Postpartum tummy* (Jelly Belly)
