Football Candy

We know of something a little sweeter than victory: It's candy. And we mean lots of it. This Sunday, when the New England Patriots face the Denver Broncos, and the Arizona Cardinals take on the Carolina Panthers, deck your face-off festivities with colorful candy creations that show your team spirit loud and proud. Even with the mounds of spicy wings, pools of dip and mountains of nachos, these decorations will be the real touchdown at your game-day party, no matter which team you're rooting for.
