Okay, first this: There’ll be a bunch of chocolate bars in this list. Why? Because they are one of the favorites amongst candy mockups.

Change the packaging color, slide in any design you want, add text and customize the background. You can upload your background and add graphics, too!

Best Candy Packaging PSD Mockups

2. Candy bar wrapper mockup

candy bar wrapper mockup
This chocolate bar wrapper mockup came in handy for four of the clients that I worked with in the past few months.

Even though it consists of only one layered PSD file, it still offers endless possibilities. I particularly like the four different knit lines that come out of the box.

You insert your artwork via the smart object, which rapidly speeds up the process.

Note: You can make a see-through version or solid.

Good. STUFF.

Price: $5


3. Foil packaging mockup

foil packaging mockup
Here’s a LITTLE secret: I used this foil packaging mockup for a bunch of projects, candy and non-candy-related.

The seven views sort out every side of the bag to easily showcase any design or logo idea you have.

Also, every element is on a separate layer (lights, shadows, etc.) for quick editing and effortless configuration. But you can always flip through the help document (just in case!).

Fine candy bag presentation awaits!

Price: $6


4. Candy bag packaging mockup

Mmm, gummy bears! Those were one of my favorites.

Are you ready for the one-click mockup showcase creation? You only need to locate the smart object layer after inserting the file into Photoshop.

From there, you drag and drop your design, and THAT’S IT.

A cool thing about this one is that it comes with three types of hangers, plus the non-hanger version.

Also, make the candy visible or not, both options are possible.

Price: $5


5. Chocolate candy bar mockup

chocolate candy bar mockup
Boost your client’s realistic chocolate candy bar design through the roof with all five PSDs that you get in this kit.

Remember, each is 4200 x 3000px (300dpi) in size, ensuring the ultimate quality even in a close-up.

To be 100% candid with you, I didn’t even have to use all five mockups for my projects. But I’ll definitely use the angled ones on my next one.

Your excellent candy design deserves the best presentation. GO!

6. Lollipop ball mockup

Fun fact (about me): I never was a fan of lollipops. Are you?

This extensive set of eight PSD mockups is ready to create the most realistic presentation of your cool lollipop design to WOW your client. (And if you’re using it for yourself, it’ll wow you!)

Quick editing guarantees you have the final version ready within seconds. Actually, I set a timer and had it done in 39 sec.

But the fast work only applies if you have the design ready. Drag and drop, change the color, adjust shadows, light and reflection and that’s it!

8. Twist wrap candy mockup

Now, this is the candy mockup I was looking for for my latest project.

It contains two wrap styles (single & double wrap) with four finishes (metallic gloss, metallic matte, gloss & matte).

That’s MORE than enough to create the necessary final product you’re after.

The only downside is that the file dimension isn’t the biggest (2000 x 850px & 900 x 1500px).

You have nothing to worry about if you don’t plan on zooms and close-ups.

13. Realistic candy PSD mockup

The sound of unwrapping candy, MMM, I still remember that. (But I stopped eating candy overall! You know, getting healthy and whatnot.)
