Candy Canes – 2011 EditionWednesday, November 9th, 2011 by Jessica Prokop
I know that I’m about to give everyone whiplash, but it’s true. The moment you finish off your Halloween candy, you run smack into the Christmas season. Well, Halloween has come and gone, and we’re seeing far fewer hours of daylight. It’s time to think about hibernation.
There’s one little Christmas detail you can take care of now to brighten the holidays. As you stock up for the next snowpocalypse, take a moment and order your Candy Canes.
A Candy Cane Craze
Each year, the holidays creep in earlier and earlier. Before I worked at a candy company, I did not believe that anyone would buy Candy Canes in October. But now I hear those calls coming in, and it’s true! They’re flying off the shelves! The time to secure your Candy Canes (especially if you need lots of them) is now. 1.76 Billion of these puppies will be made this year, so whether there are 6 Billion or 7 Billion humans on the Earth, there’s no excuse for not getting a few peppermint sticks of your own.
Don’t Be Left Out in the Cold
When you shop with Candy Favorites, you can order candy canes (or stocking stuffers, or bulk candy) and schedule delivery for closer to Christmas. When you’re pummeled with last-minute details, your future self will be so grateful that you had the foresight to plan ahead. All you’ll have to do will be to accept the package and go back to basting your Christmas goose.
Classic Candy Canes
The thing about traditional Candy Canes is, people are expecting them. After all, kids have been enjoying them for 350 years. A Christmas without Candy Canes is like a breakfast without bacon — ridiculous! Classic versions are the most in demand, so here’s a variety of options. We’ve got you covered with tiny ones, normal ones, and totally giant Candy Canes.
Novelty Candy Canes
Novelty Candy Canes make a great stocking-stuffing supplement to traditional versions. They take the candies you know and love a step further with crazy flavors, interesting textures, and even gum. While we don’t advise that you totally forgo the classics, we have a variety of newfangled Candy Canes to keep your tastebuds on their toes.
