Everyone knows that the secret to success is a jar full of candy. Oh, you didn’t know that? Well, now you do! We like to think we speak from experience when we say that candy jars make everything ten times better. That’s why we’re so excited about our new Filled Candy Jars section!
Imagine with us for a minute that you have a party to go to, or a friend to bestow a gift upon. What will you buy? Around here, we tend to think that a jar of candy is always a good option, and we have a lot to choose from!
Maybe your friends are really into nostalgia and all things retro. That’s perfect! They would probably love our website. But, they would probably love the Americana Mix Candy Jar a little bit more.
This mix contains goodies from yesteryear that are sure to put a smile on any sentimental face! Every time you open the lid, you’re bound to grab a candy that has you reminiscing on days gone by, when it snowed on Christmas morning and when children respected their elders. Sounds good to us!
If you’re in the mood for something a little more on the fresh side, we’d recommend the Starlights Mints Candy Jar. This jar makes it easy for you to always open your mouth with confidence!
With all of the mints inside, you don’t have to worry about scaring off your friends and family with smelly breath anymore! Or, if you prefer, we also have a Brach’s Ice Blue Mints Candy Jar, so you can have options when it comes to keeping your breath fresh. Thank goodness for that minty clean feeling, are we right?
But maybe you’re craving a sweet rendition of your favorite soda. If your favorite soda is root beer, then the Dads Root Beer Barrels Candy Jar is exactly the jar for you! This is definitely the perfect gift for anyone who could drink root beer morning, noon, and night. Now, instead of opening up a can of soda, you can pop one of these sweet treats in your mouth!
For those of you who are itching for a vacation, you’re in luck! No, we can’t give you a vacation, but we can give your mouth one! Our Riviera Mix Candy Jar will leave you feeling like you’ve jetted straight to the French Riviera, with only the best candy in tow!
We’re pretty big fans of the high-quality candy in this mix, and we know that you will be too. In fact, it’s so good, you might not even mind that you aren’t on vacation.
As fun as it is to go away, it’s also great to come back home. That’s why we think everyone will love this Assorted Tootsie Rolls Candy Jar and the Vanilla Tootsie Rolls Candy Jar. Because, really, who doesn’t feel all warm and cozy when they bite into a Tootsie Roll?
Just one taste and you’re right back in your happy place, right? We know we are! And if you don’t believe us, then you’ll just have to order the jar and find out.
One thing we can probably all agree on, however, is that the Caramel Creams Candy Jar is going to be dangerous. These candies are just too hard to resist! We know we’ve found ourselves reaching back again, and again, and again, for just one more. So be warned! These creams will have you hooked after just one bite, for better or for worse (but probably for better).
If you and yours are big fans of bubbles, then the Bubble Gum Balls Candy Jar should keep you occupied for a while! This is a fun jar for people who crave something they can really get their jaws into!
It’s also a great jar for keeping the kids entertained on a long car ride. Because if they’re blowing bubbles then they can’t be annoying each other, right? Just as long as they don’t start putting the gum in each other’s hair!
Rounding out our long list of great candy jar mixes is the Brach’s Butterscotch Discs Candy Jar. This is one super sweet jar that is practically guaranteed to please. When we think of sugary treats, butterscotch is high on our list of favorites, and we know we’re not alone in that! So, if you really want to get your sugar high on, then you’re just a few clicks away from making your dreams a reality.
As you can see, we have a mix for just about every taste! So don’t be sad and candy jar-less anymore. Now there’s no excuse not to get your hands on one of these guys!
Spring is here and so are many new candies! We know that spring weather can be unpredictable—just about as unpredictable as your sugar cravings! So lucky for you, we have a little bit of everything to make your snack time satisfying.
Our Juicy Drop Gummies are perfect for people who want a little bit of gummie and a little splash of juice! These chewy gummies have a fun, gel center, and come in a number of fruity flavors. They’re a great way to welcome your sweet tooth into spring!
For more fruity fun, you don’t want to miss these Chewy Lemonhead Flavor Fusers. A fun twist on a favorite treat, our Chewy Lemonhead Flavor Fusers really are top notch. These little candies allow you to mix and match the flavors to create flavors that are totally new and exciting!
Speaking of exciting, what could be more exciting than eating a cow tale? NO! Not a real cow tale, but a lovely caramel one. These cream-filled gems are one candy that never goes out of style. And since they’re mini, that means you can eat more of them, right? Of course!
And, if you happen to get a little bit of caramel, or any of our other candies, stuck in your teeth, now you can use a toothpick that actually tastes good! These Cinna-Pix can help keep your smile bright, and may even help you kick a bad smoking habit. The possibilities are endless.
They say that variety is the spice of life. And while we feel like many sayings like this can be a bit overrated, we know that this one is accurate. Especially when it comes to sweets, why have to choose one when you can choose them all? The more the merrier, in our opinion! So you can imagine how excited we are to share our many new variety packs with you!
For the people who like a little bit of sweet and savory, the Austin Cookie & Cracker Variety Pack is exactly what you need. This is perfect for when you’re trying to please them all! With chocolate crèmes, vanilla crèmes, and everything in between, your cookie lovers will be satisfied. But with this pack, those who enjoy a nice cheese cracker with peanut butter will not be disappointed!
Sometimes, though, you really just want a cookie. And with Grandma’s Cookies Variety Mix, you can eat cookies to your heart’s delight! This variety pack contains chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies, just to name a few. There’s so many, you’re bound to have a favorite, or two, or three. We won’t judge.

Spring is in the air, and you know what that means: there’s no better time to pull out your favorite springtime treats! And while different people may prefer different flavors for this time of year, at CandyFavorites, spring has us craving lollipops!
A fun, sugary treat that is both easy to transport and easy to eat, lollipops are a great way to usher in the new season. So if your sweet tooth is telling you to stop, drop, and give it some sugar, then you’re in the right place.
Our Chupa Chups Creamy Lollipops Case is perfect for people who want the fun variety of Chupa Chups lollipops, and a LOT of it! There are so many springy flavors in this mix, like lemon-lime, and strawberry-crème. These really are a perfect sweet treat for people in motion. And with such fun flavors, you’ll never get bored.
Our Chupa Cups Creamy Lollipops Bulk is another great option for lollipop lovers! These lollipops come with the same fantastic variety as the Chupa Cups Case. The slightly smaller quantity may be a bit more manageable, and it will certainly be just as delicious!! Whether you choose to indulge in the Case or the Bulk option, you will have plenty to share with your friends and family. And if lollipops don’t put people in a springy mood, then we don’t know what will!
But, if you’re looking for a lollipop that is just a little bit different, then don’t despair! Our new Stachecifier Lollipops are pretty cool. These mustache-shaped little guys will have you giggling at the funny faces you can make. We’re pretty sure that anyone who’s a fan of the latest mustache trend will also be a fan of these. How could you not be?
So for all you lollipop fiends out there, spring is looking like a great season! We’re pretty pumped for all of the new candy that’s in store and you should be too!
This communication is being sent from our warehouse basement storeroom, where all employees are being held hostage by rebel Gummi candies. They have overtaken us with Sweet Squirter Guns and tied us up with Licorice Laces, but I’ve managed to chew through them. The Gummies won’t relinquish control until all candies are liberated from our warehouse so they may roam free in the world. For the sake of all the hard working employees at CandyFavorites.com, I implore you to fill your shopping carts with loads of sweet treats before they…
We don’t just enjoy selling candy, but also have fun playing with it too. Please enjoy this stop-motion animation New Year’s greeting and have a sweet 2015!
Trolli Santa & Elves Mustaches Gummi Candy
Classroom/movie Munchability: 5 (the fun is in the dress-up play!)
Melt Measure: 0
Trust me, it is as much a surprise to me as it is to you that the elves of Santa’s toy shop have the same type of mustaches that Santa has! I always imagined the elves as baby faced little characters running around childishly as they assembled toys for the undersides of all the Christmas trees of children. (Despite growing up Jewish, I have still had many daydream about Santa and his elves).
Perhaps the elves were not preparing Christmas gifts, and instead were growing and grooming each other’s mustaches. Perhaps these little elves look up to Santa and show their respectful admiration by mimicking his mustache, or lip brow, if you will.
With three flavors: Cherry, Cherry & Lime, and Strawberry & Cherry, and three different ‘stache styles, this gummi provides adequate variables to balance with the consistency of the texture and chew density. Each gummi provides a substantial bite into the thickness of sweet delight.
Since I love to share, and I had more mustaches than I cared to try on, I offered to some of of these Christmas candies to my friends during a day of rock climbing in Connellsville, PA.
Here are some things that were said about the Mustaches:
|“The flavor is not overpowering, it’s not in your face.”||“Tastes just like an elf!”|
|“They are enjoyable… they are refreshing. Refreshing, that’s definitely a word that should be in there! I was chewing away, tasting some cherry and before I knew it I was wondering, is that lime I’m tasting? It totally was lime. Lime makes it refreshing!”||“How’s the aroma?…I can smell them from here and my nose is stuffed…”|
|“You actually enjoyed it?”“Yes, and I’d have another one, and another one and another one. It might just be my new favorite candy.”|
|“I will remember them with pleasure.”|
Have fun with wearing the Santa & Elves Mustaches. I challenge you to try to wear the mustache, say “Ho! Ho! Ho!” and eat the mustache all without using your hands! You might even get some candy aroma therapy from this game, as the sweet tastes trickle into your brainwaves through your nasal passage. Have fun and get a laugh outa this gummi candy!

“I’m not a huge caramel fan, so my experience is jaded, but honestly it’s good”
“It’s like a Caramello log!”
It’s no surprise that Mars created the MilkyWay candy; this candy bar is out of this world! If you really try, you might even be able to find a resemblance between the evolution of the MilkyWay bar from the nougat-caramel combo to caramel-solo and the dynamic Milky Way galaxy.
Between 100 and 400 billion stars paint what we see of the Milky Way galaxy and they say that there is at least one planet for every star! I have no idea how they create number estimates like these; who is counting how many of the hundreds of billions of stars?! It’s absolutely mind blowing, just like the Milky Way Simply Caramel!
In the center of this Milky Way is a thick and gooey, soft and satisfying caramel core, slightly less chaotic than the supermassive black hole that is theorized to reside in the center of our Milky Way galaxy. It is supposedly a hole that is four million times the mass of the sun (over a million earths fit inside the sun) where stars zoom around like leaking balloons in formation. If you close your eyes, you can let this caramel delight, take you on a flight into the supermassive black hole of the MilkyWay Simpy Caramel.
After reading the “a bit about Becca our resident candy blogger” bio for the first time in five years, I felt a little embarrassed that that’s what is informing the current candy lovers about their resident blogger. Allow me to quickly catch you up on what I was doing during the five years that I was not writing candy blogs.
Last you heard, I was a sophomore at the University of Colorado in Boulder, beginning to discover myself. Since then, I took two years off of school. I lived in an intentionally community on a small farm in Israel, learning permaculture/small scale farming and sustainable living practices. I served people food in Pittsburgh and in Boulder. I harvested vegetables on an organic farm. I got involved with community initiatives regarding food, gardening, music and open mics along the way, all the meanwhile rock climbing every chance I could get. I transferred to Warren Wilson College near Asheville, NC in 2012 and graduated with a B.A. degree in Outdoor Leadership last May (2014). I just finished my first out-of-college summer job as a field instructor for a wilderness therapy program in North Carolina. I am currently funemployed with infinite worlds of adventure at the tips of my toes.
Candy blogs are a good way for me to remain engaged with consistency while I decide on my next steps, be they in wilderness therapy, urban gardening education, rock climbing, skiing, beatboxing or something else.
I hope you all enjoy reading my blogs, because I enjoy writing them. Take my thoughts, ideas and opinions with a grain of sugar and try the candies for yourself. I hope you find places you agree with me and places that you disagree, and I’m happy to hear about both.
I’ll leave you candy lovers with a quote from the book I am currently reading. He is describing a large arch rock formation in the desert of Utah:
“The Delicate Arch explains nothing, for each thing in its own way, when true to its own character, is equally beautiful… If Delicate Arch has any significance, it lies, I will venture, in the power of the odd and unexpected to startle the senses and surprise the mind out of their ruts of habit, to compel us into a reawakened awareness of the wonderful—that which is full of wonder.”
