Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth This Memorial Day!

Candy for Memorial Day!

No matter where you are in the country, Memorial Day always feels like the start of summer. There’s usually nice weather, great food, and good times spent with friends and family. What could be better than that, right?

Around here, we think quality time with your favorite people is one of the most important things in life. After all, you spend all day working—maybe with people you’d rather not be working with! When you do have the down time, you’ve really got to make the most of it and surround yourselves with the ones you love.

Especially on Memorial Day, we should take a moment to appreciate the loved ones we do have and the service of those who gave their lives so that we can continue to live in freedom.

And if you’re gathering your nearest and dearest together this Memorial Day, you may want to consider adding a bit of candy into the mix! Because after everyone has had their fill of burgers and hot dogs, you may want a little bit of sugary sweetness to pick things up.

Of course, you can eat any candy on any day of the year, but why not go for a patriotic theme? If that’s what you were thinking, then we’ve got just the candies for you.

Fancy something a little chewy? Our Red, White and Blue Gumballs are just what you need! These will look great on a buffet table, and even better when you use them to blow a giant bubble! And if Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, then blowing giant bubbles is the unofficial activity of the season.

Or, if you’d prefer something to satisfy your chocolate cravings, maybe our Patriotic Tootsie Rolls are what you need. These are all wrapped up in our nation’s greatest colors, and ready for your summertime enjoyment.

And if you’re more of a cookie person than a candy person, our Patriotic Cookie container is here for you.

So whether you’re having a large or small gathering this Memorial Day, don’t let you guests leave without dessert!

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.

vanilla-tootsie-rolls-gift-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).

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!


These Tootsie Roll Vanilla Flavored Midgees Will Only Be Around For A Brief Moment of Existence

Limited Edition Vanilla Tootsie Rolls

Vanilla Tootsie Rolls are a "Limited Edition" yet are one of the most sought after candies!

Sharability: 10

Denture Danger: 9

Convenience: 10

Novelty: 8

Overall: 8

 In a world where communities strive to represent diversity, candy companies seem to do the same. These Tootsie Rolls are what one might call the Caucasian candy of the community.

This limited edition candy receives a thumbs up and a cheesy smile from me, as it succeeds in being sweet and vanillay. As in most situations, where there is chocolate, there is also vanilla, and Tootsie Roll wouldn’t be the one to put its foot down to this norm.

 What confuses me is that this candy is marketed heavily as a “Limited Edition!” candy, so heavily that a good portion of the small wrapper is taken up with this exclamation. Though this exclusively vanilla bag is limited edition, the vanilla flavored Tootsie Roll is a regular candidate in the multi-flavored Tootsie Roll bags.

 On that same note, limited is a relative word. All candies are technically a limited edition in the world of time, as they will not exist forever. This candy is only around for a brief moment of existence, as are our lives. Limited could mean this candy is available only for one week, or one year, or a limited one hundred years.

Calling all vanilla lovers! This is your chance to purchase and enjoy the one of a kind, “Limited Edition!” Vanilla Tootsie Rolls, get them while they are still in existence!
