I love this time of year! It’s time to let our candy computer generate a best selling candy report for me. Here is our list of our top ten best selling online candies of 2008.
10. Satellite Wafers - Otherwise known as flying saucers, stale candy with beads, or communion hosts filled with sugar beads.
9. Chocolate Tootsie Pops – This was a limited edition Tootsie Roll brought out. Limited edition? Are they nuts??? Even Weight Watchers endorsed these low calorie tasty treats and we couldn’t keep them in stock.
8. Caramel Apple Lollipops - Yeah another winner for Tootsie Roll. A delicious apple tasting lollipop dipped in caramel.
7. Sugar Free Tootsie Pop Mini Lollipops – Yep this company sure is on a tootsie “ roll!”
6. Dubble Bubble Sugarless Bubble Gum – and to think it use to be Bazooka
5. Bob’s Soft Peppermint Sticks - These Nostalgic candy treats are a favorite all year long. Some people dip them in chocolate and others in lemonade!
4. Candy Cigarettes - I’m sure that was a shocker to a lot of people, not us though, they held the number one spot for a lot of years!
3. Penny Candy Taffy Chews – Ahh we can thank all the parade goers for this #3 cheap candy favorite of the year!
2. Chocolate Golf Balls – We are avid sports fans here and carry a huge selection of sports candy treats. Chocolate golf balls took first place in the sports division this year beating out, chocolate footballs, basketballs, and soccer balls
And finally our #1 best selling candy of 2008 is… Tootsie Frooties Tootsie Rolls by Tootsie Roll Inc. We sold almost 38 thousand 360 count bags of these tasty treats. That’s over 13 MILLION Tootsie Frootie Tootsie Rolls!
So, anyone care to guess what next years winning top ten will be? I’m not sure on all 10, but I think I’ll put my money on the Nostalgic Gum, Beemans, Clove or Black Jack Gum. We got notice last month from the manufacturer they are finally bringing them back out after a 2 year absence in production.
Even if your favorite didn’t make our top 10 this year, We appreciate your business and wish everyone a Happy Healthy New Year!
