Which Candy Should I Include In A Pinata?
Since pinatas are commonly used in warmer weather, you have to be careful with the type of candy you include in a pinata. Chocolate is a bad idea for example, as this can melt in the warm temperatures. Instead, choose candies such as liquorice, smarties, and lollipops.
If you do decide to include chocolate in a pinata - or other candy that could melt - be sure to store your pinata in a cool location for as long as possible. Only take the pinata out when you are about to use it, this will prevent the chocolate and other candy from melting before the kids get to it.
