The “Name that Candy Bar” baby shower game, otherwise known as “The Dirty Diaper Game,” is a simple shower game that brings great amusement. The game is prepared by using a microwave to melt candy bars in disposable diapers. Shower guests then guess what types of candy bars were used. It’s a good idea to have some easier candy bars to guess and some harder candy bars to guess.
Easier Candy Bars
Easier candy bars to guess will be ones with more recognizable fillings. These include Butterfingers, Snickers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Kit-Kat bars and Almond Joy. You may also want to use Milky Way and Babe Ruth bars in your game. A very simple bar would be Nestle White Crunch. With this one the guests would have to come up with the full name of the candy bar. Be sure when you are preparing the diapers that you only heat them enough to melt the candy.
Hard Candy Bars
More difficult candy bars to guess are bars that only contain chocolate or only have nuts for a filling. Guests will have to determine type by sight and smell, which means they will have to pay close attention to the “dirty” diapers. Candy bars in this category would include Hershey’s, Mr. Goodbar, Nestle Crunch and Ghirardelli chocolate bars. If desired, reward more points for the more difficult bars to guess.
Other Types of Candy
If you really want to make the game interesting, you can try melting other types of candies as well. You can melt Hershey's Kisses, Junior Mints, and Milk Duds. Again, you might want to include these in a "hardest to guess" category and award extra points for these diapers.
