  9. Ice Cream Sea

Characters matched to setting number

  • Chemist (1)
  • Chemist’s Kids (1)
  • Gingerbread people (game in general)
  • Plumpy (2) OR Momma Ginger Tree from the 2002 version OR Cupcakes from the 2012 version
  • Mr Mint/ Mint (4) OR Duke of Swirl from the 2010 version
  • Lord Licorice (5)
  • Jolly (6)
  • Gramma Nutt (7) OR Gramma Gooey from the 2010 version
  • Princess Lolly (8)
  • Queen Frostine (9) demoted to Princess in 2010 version
  • Gloppy the Molasses Monster (10) OR Gloppy the Chocolate Monster (2012 version)
  • King Candy/ King Kandy (11)
  • Momma Gingersnap (removed from game)


Thinking the characters will land in the 1980s version of the board game and maybe the newer characters will part of a sub-plot to take over and glamorize Candy Land??? (is this too close to Fairy Godmother and Prince Charming trying to take over Far Far Away in the Shrek series?)  not sure yet, still working that out in my head


By the by did you know that there have been 22 versions of Candy Land including a VCR board game, a DVD version, a portable, Dora, & even a Winnie the Pooh version (now that one I want).
