Gummy Shark Popsicles

For a tasty shark-themed treat, try making gummy shark popsicles. Fill popsicle molds with lemon-lime soda and drop in a few gummy sharks. Freeze until solid for a fun way to cool down during the shark frenzy.

Shark-cuterie Board

by Made In a Pinch

Another easy snack idea is to create a shark-cuterie board. Get inspired by this awesome board by Made in a Pinch and make it your own! We like to start by arranging shark-shaped gummy candies and shark-shaped cheese slices on a cutting board. Add some crackers, shark fins made from black olives, and seaweed crisps for an ocean-themed snack everyone will enjoy.

Shark Fin Jello Cups

Shark-shaped Quesadillas

Shark-shaped quesadillas are a great way to satisfy your hunger while celebrating Shark Week. Use Monterey Jack cheese blend or American cheese slices. Place the cheese on tortillas and cook over medium heat for a tasty shark-themed snack. Cut into triangles for a shark shaped quesadilla.

Shark Bait Ice Cream Float

To quench your thirst, serve a shark frenzy ice cream float. Fill glasses with lemon-lime soda and add a scoop of blue sports drink. Top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and garnish with gummy sharks for a refreshing and fun beverage.

Watermelon Shark


For a healthier option, make watermelon sharks. For a simpler treat cut a watermelon in half and use a shark-shaped cookie cutter to create shark shapes. Serve these refreshing fruit snacks at your shark-themed birthday party or any summer gathering.

Shark Marshmallow Pops

If you’re feeling crafty, try making shark marshmallow pops. Skewer marshmallows with lollipop sticks, dip them in melted white chocolate, and add chocolate chip eyes or candy eyes, and sharp teeth. Place them in the fridge to set and watch your party guests devour these adorable and tasty treats.

Shark Bite Cupcakes

by A Wicked Whisk

Don’t forget about the perfect addition to any Shark Week celebration: shark bite cupcakes. Bake boxed cake mix in cupcake liners, frost with blue icing, and top with a shark fin made from fondant, shark fin cupcake toppers, or a shark gummy candy. These cupcakes will be the highlight of your shark-themed party.

Other Shark Themed Snack Ideas

Shark suckers are another fun idea for a shark-themed snack. Dip lollipop sticks into melted white chocolate, insert them into gummy shark candies, and let them set. These adorable and delicious treats are perfect for both kids and adults.

For a fun and visually striking snack, create a shark-themed charcuterie board. Arrange cured meats, cheeses, and crackers on a large platter. Use a shark-shaped cookie cutter to cut shapes from sliced cheeses and place them on top of the board. Add some whole grain mustard for a savory touch.

No Shark Week celebration is complete without shark ice cubes. Fill ice cube trays with water and place a gummy shark in each compartment. Freeze until solid and serve in drinks for a chilling surprise.
