What else should you know about Ritter Sport Chocolates? These are a couple fun facts about these delicious treats.

Ritter Sport Retro Candy | BlairCandy.comThe company was founded in 1912 in Germany by Alfred Eugen Ritter and Clara Ritter.

Clara came up with the company’s signature square shape. Why square? It was supposed to “fit in everyone’s jacket pocket without breaking and weighs the same as a normal long bar.”

Ritter Sport also had long bars, boxes of chocolate, and other seasonal products. These were gradually phased out in 1960 to focus on the square bars.

Ritter Sport is a very environmentally friendly company! In the early 1990’s they switched to fully recyclable packaging and developed a agroforestry project where they get their cocoa from in Nicaragua. There is also an organic range of chocolates that are available.

Wedding Candy Must Haves

Whether you’re planning a whole buffet or just want a few candy dishes placed here and there, traditional wedding candy is a must. These candies can fill favor bags, give guests something to snack on while waiting for their meals, or accompany a slice of wedding cake. But where do you begin? These are the three staple wedding candies that we recommend starting with:

Jordan Almonds are synonymous with weddings. If you’ve never had a Jordon Almond, they’re an almond coated in a hard candy shell. They’re usually found in pastel colors or in a shiny white.

Weddings usually mean meeting new people and making good impressions. So what are you usually looking for when this occurs? A mint! Make sure your guests have a fresh breath with a sweet Butter Mint. Also called Pillow Mints, these mints get their name because they are soft and sweet.

You usually know Sixlets as the colorful, round, hard shelled chocolate. But many rely on Sixlets to add a pop of color to the candy selection. Sixlets come in tons of colors and can be easily matched to the wedding colors. If you have a candy buffet at your wedding, these are a no brainer!

To plan your wedding candy selection, head over to BlairCandy.com! You’ll find these traditional candies plus plenty of others to satisfy your guests’ sweet tooth.

Cheer on Your Team with Football Candy & Snacks!

Whether it’s a casual game here and there or you’re glued for the whole season, make sure you don’t go hungry! Here are some football candy treats and snacks that we think everyone, even if they root for the wrong team, will love:

Football Candy | BlairCandy.com

Any snack that you can grab a handful of and enjoy is the perfect solution for watching the big game. Beer Nuts are a classic option that not only has the salty crunch you should have in a snack, but also has a sweet twist too.

Combos can be sweet, savory, or both! These pretzel snacks make a great snack to pass around and keep out throughout the game.

Finally, you have to have chocolate with your snacks. These chocolate footballs will make even the most serious of fans smile. Plus, since they are individually wrapped, you can use them to decorate candy dishes for festive football décor.

Chips are obviously a game day must, but change things up with a bag of Andy Capp’s fries. Choose from cheesy or spicy fries for a delicious, crispy treat!
