It’s hard to believe that summer is nearing her end – how does it slip away so much sooner than winter?! Yes, in just a week or two kids across the country will be heading back to school, spending their days with friends new and old, learning important lessons, and (hopefully!) making a great impression on their teachers. While your child’s personality, attention, and eagerness to learn will all have the most impact on what their teacher’s like most about them, starting off the new year with a little present can’t hurt, right?
We’re all familiar with the classic teacher gift of a bright, shiny, red apple. But we got to thinking about a fun way you can channel this timeless treat in a unique way. It didn’t take us long to come up with apple flavored candy! You can fill up a mason jar and tie it off with a pretty ribbon, present it in a colorful box your child decorates herself, or line a pencil case with wax paper and fill it to the brim. The options are as endless as apple candy is delicious! Here’s a few of our favorites…
Green Apple Gummy Bears – These Albanese gummy bears are jam-packed with green apple flavor! Soft, sweet and downright adorable, we think most teachers would choose these friendly looking fellas as teacher’s pet!
Sour Patch Apples – Shaped like the tiniest apples you’ve ever seen, these softly sour yummy gummies are one of my personal favorite candies. Buy a big bag and you’ll have plenty for the teacher and yourself!
Green Apple Airheads – I’ve never met an Airheads flavor I don’t like, but green apple are among my favorites. The only thing brighter than their shiny wrapper and fresh flavor is your super student!
