Your Favorite Candy…Now Available in a Jar!

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 by Laurnie Wilson

tootsie-roll-jars-giftEveryone 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?

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.

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).

brachs-butterscotch-disks-gIf 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!

 

Earth Day Nostalgic Candy Winners

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012 by Jessica Prokop

Thanks to everyone for sharing your memories! Since nostalgic retro candy is one of our favorite topics, this was a particularly fun contest. We hope that you’ll share your candy anecdotes with us any time they cross your mind. But now that the deadline for submissions has passed, it’s time to announce some winners. So without further ado…

The winners of the Earth Day Candy Giveaway are:

Nicole (who misses Peanut Butter Bars)
Katherine (who loves tiny Chiclets)

Winners will be notified by email or personal Facebook message, depending on how they submitted their entries. (Nicole and Katherine, watch for a message from Jessica!)

Some things we learned:

  • Seasonal candy is great for building memories.
  • Changing the classic formula of a candy is probably worse than just discontinuing it.
  • Many people would rather pay more for their favorite candies than see them disappear.
  • Brach’s Candy has brought a lot of people a lot of happiness — but also some heartache.
  • Many of the candies believed to be extinct are still available! Check out our Retro Candy section
    before you give up the search for your favorite vintage candies.

Earth Day Candy Giveaway

Saturday, April 21st, 2012 by Jessica Prokop

Earth Day is all about saving, and we think it’s important to save your favorite candies from extinction. Over the years, so many delicious, ingenious candies have gone the way of the dinosaurs. We can’t take our favorite candy for granted, or we may never see it again.

In the spirit of conservation, we’re giving away some great nostalgic candy prizes. It’s our way of spreading the love of retro candies and making sure that future generations get to enjoy the same flavors we savor today.

To enter, share your favorite memory of an already extinct candy. Or tell us about the candy you believe should be saved for posterity. Just leave your story in the comments on this post to enter. We’ll announce the winners early next week!

Don’t forget to do your part for the planet. Buy online to save gas. And always dispose of your wrappers responsibly.
