I’ve always believed that there are two easy ways to make something cuter, cooler or just plain funner – make it mini, or make it jumbo! Of course when the thing we’re talking about is candy, jumbo is the preferable choice. After all, you don’t often hear someone say, “This candy bar would be perfect if there weren’t so much of it!” That’s like wishing a bubble bath had less bubbles, or puppies were less adorable. Who would want that?! So with jumbo candy being the oh-so-better choice, it goes without saying that it makes an awesome Christmas idea that’s affordable and sure to bring a smile. And we just happen to have some of that giant goodness here at Blair Candy! Let’s look at 3 of our many tremendous treats…
Giant Gummy Bears – Nope, they aren’t an urban legend. Neither are they in a cage at a roadside carnival alongside the bearded lady or world’s tallest man. They’re right here at Blair, and they’re as delicious as they are delightful! These chubby fellas are a staggering 4 inches tall and 2 ½ inches across. Think of your average gummy bear and it’s easy to see one of these could serve as their gummy god or goddess! Packaged in a clear case to keep them clean between snackings (chances are good you won’t finish this all at once!), these make a really unique gift for just $3.50 each.
Giant Hershey Bar – This candy car isn’t messing around! It could crumble fun size bars with a passing glance, and leave classic size bars breaking into blocks with the sheer magnitude of its S’more-making possibilities. This Hershey bar is more than a handful or mouthful at a whopping 5 pounds. Yup, FIVE POUNDS of pure Hershey heaven. One weighs as much as some newborns! Two weigh as much as a bag of potatoes!
Giant Jawbreakers – Whether you choose ‘The Bruiser’ or ‘Psychedelic Sours’, these jawbreakers are a definite multi-day snack. Each box holds 12 individually wrapped giant jawbreakers, making these colorful candies less than $2 apiece. A fun take-home treat for a holiday party, or a sweet stocking stuffer for someone with quite a few socks to fill, we recommend giving your tongue a break once in awhile with these. The temptation to keep licking will be strong, but talking, breathing and drinking are important, too!
