Today is National Dessert Day!

National Dessert Day is celebrated on October 14th. It’s sure to be a day filled with rich, yummy treats (May we actually suggest having dessert at every meal today?)

Dessert is a French word derived from “desservir”, meaning “to clear the table”. The first desserts were focused on nutrition, and mainly consisted of natural candies and nuts before evolving to complex baked goods and ice cream recipes.

At Blair Candy, we’re always sure to be stocked with the best additions to your favorite meal of the day –such as yummy candy ice cream toppings, sprinkles, sundae toppings, and more.

October is National Caramel Month!

This month in food history, we’re celebrating caramel! The yummy confection is made by cooking sugar until it changes color, and is often found in candy bars or drizzled on desserts. Chocolate is undoubtedly the most popular ingredient among candy bars, but what would a Snickers bar or Milk Duds be without caramel?

In observance of National Caramel Month, we’re highlighting some of our most popular caramel treats:

Caramel Apple Lollipops:  From the Tootsie Roll Company come these lollipops that are ideal for the fall season. They’re great for Halloween, too!

Goetze’s  Caramel Creams:  Caramel is the main ingredient of these classic bullseye candies.

Caramel Apple Cow Tales: The delicious classic with a splash of candy apple flavor in the cream center.

Milky Way Simply Caramel Candy Bars:  Classic Milky Way candy bars without the nougat or peanuts – simply caramel!

Fisher’s Caramel Popcorn: Who doesn’t love caramel popcorn for the holidays?
