It was just a month ago that we were writing about some of our top candy picks for Mom, and here we are hot on the heels of Father’s Day. While there’s a good chance that your mom and dad like a lot of the same sweets, where you can really switch things up is in how you present them. For example, you might tuck Mom’s treats inside a beautiful basket while Dad’s are stowed away inside a tackle box. Get creative!
Also, just as you did with Mom’s sweets and snacks, be sure to think of goodies that hold some special memories. These could be things you enjoyed together, things you’ve heard your dad mention from his past, or things he eats all the time and will definitely appreciate a stockpile of. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
Fisher’s Caramel Popcorn: One of the latest additions here at BlairCandy.com, I don’t think anyone is more excited than me that we’re carrying this yummy treat! Handmade for 70 years, and a staple boardwalk delight on the East Coast, I grew up enjoying this caramel corn with my parents and love it even more today. Whether Dad is a fan of Fisher’s popcorn in particular, or loves caramel corn in general, he’s sure to be asking for another tub in no time!
Gerrit’s Gummy Pink Cadillacs: Whether Dad has a Cadillac he loves now, loved then, has been working on for years, or has simply been dreaming of for years, these fruity Pink Cadillacs candies are sure to make him smile. And he won’t even have to worry about parking at the end of the lot because of all the careless people who open their doors too wide or park too close!
Satisfying Snacks for a Day Outdoors: Is your dad happiest when he’s miles away from the nearest shopping center, enjoying a day on the water, at the park, or in the woods? Give him some snacks that will hold him over until he’s caught enough fish for dinner! Consider Freestone pickles, Planter’s nuts, Jack Link’s beef jerky, and Lance crackers. You might also want to consider joining him for one of these outings. As much as he loves a quiet morning on the water by himself, time spent with you is even better.
