Did You Know these Candy Bars were Gluten Free? (Part 3)

Gluten Free Candy Bars | BlairCandy.com Finding sweet treats that fit certain dietary restrictions can sometimes be difficult. However, we bet you didn’t know that some of your favorite candies are actually gluten free! Here are three more gluten free candy bars that we bet you didn’t realize fit into the category:

3 Musketeers – This candy used to have three flavors in it, giving it its name. However, it’s now just focused on a fluffy chocolate center and a rich chocolate coating. It’s a great candy for those who don’t like nuts or extra chewy candies.

Baby Ruth – Caramel, peanuts, nougat, and creamy chocolate…who could resist! These gluten free candy bars make it easy to indulge and still stick to dietary restrictions.

Will these new additions to the Snickers brand be satisfying hunger just as well as the original Snickers bar? The word is yes! “Snickers is all about satisfying hunger and we’re excited to do that in a new and delicious way with Snickers Crisper,” Snickers brand director Allison Miazga-Bedrick said. “Crisper delivers a new snacking option with a combination of textures, so it only made sense to highlight combinations of hilarious hunger symptoms in our supporting campaign as well.”

The Lovely Story of Conversation Hearts

Every Valentine’s Day, there are a few things everyone expects to receive: flowers, a card, and Conversation Hearts from Necco! Also known as Sweethearts, Conversation Hearts are the wildly popular candies that are perfect for expressing how you feel in sweet little bite-size treats. Why? Each heart has a small message of love printed on the front, making them adorable delights for your own “sweetheart.” Even though everyone is familiar with Conversation Hearts, not everyone knows the story behind them. Believe us; the history is just as charming as the candy itself!

A man named Oliver R. Chase invented a special machine, designed to cut wafer candy into different shapes, in 1847, and soon opened up a factory to produce mass quantities of this novelty candy. In 1866, Oliver’s brother, Daniel, had the idea to print cheeky sayings on the candy. Since the candy grew in popularity for weddings, the sayings included: “Married in White, you have chosen right” and “Married in Pink, he will take a drink.” This type of candy only became more ubiquitous in weddings, and it eventually evolved into the heart-shaped candy we all know and love.

What’s really interesting is the fact that the Chase Brothers didn’t just make candy hearts. In the early days of their candy production business, they produced lozenges, horseshoes, watches, baseballs…even postcard candy! Even though they were originally pastel candy hearts, they have since changed their recipe, making them easier to chew and much more vibrant. These aren’t the only changes that have been made to Conversation Hearts. In the 1990s, Necco, the company that now owns the hearts, wanted to update some of the sayings and retire some of the dated ones. Necco accepts suggestions each year for new sayings, a tradition that continues to this day.

Sunday is National Lollipop Day 2014!

Once Independence Day has come and gone, there’s a bit of holiday lull for a while. On one hand, the advantage to this is that we get to save some money. Holidays have a habit of getting expensive, and it’s good to let the old bank account recover! But on the other hand, it’s always nice to have a fun holiday to look forward to, and knowing the next one is in the distant future can be disheartening. And that is precisely why we think it’s so much fun to celebrate those much smaller holidays that no one ever heard of before the internet!

Did you know there’s a National Bird Day, National Chip and Dip Day, Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day, and even a Reach as High as You Can Day? All these, and countless more, have been imagined up and posted all over the internet for all who may wish to celebrate them! With hundreds, if not thousands, of these fun holidays out there, it is somewhat impossible to do something special for them all. However, it is possible to choose a few favorites (I’m a big fan of Eat What You Want Day, personally), and celebrate them for all they’re worth. And one of those holidays we definitely think is worth honoring is coming up this Sunday – National Lollipop Day!

Don’t worry; this won’t be an expensive holiday. You don’t need to buy a mountain of presents, or prepare a 6-course feast. All you need to do is grab a few suckers and sweeten up your weekend one lick at a time. Haven’t had a lollipop in a while and aren’t sure what’s out there? Browse our extensive selection of yummy lollipops and pick a few favorites!

How’s The Reception on Your Kit Kat?

If you take a few minutes to stop by KitKat.com and poke around, you might find yourself chuckling a bit. My favorite page of their redesigned site is the Pioneering page, where we discover the phrase ‘Confectionery Perfectionery’, and notes about wanting the individual wafers to “look like big square mountains.” Yep, it’s a Kit Kat blueprint – er, brownprint? – and it’s hilarious.

Another page I recommend spending some time to really take it all in is the User Experience page, where you’ll learn that Kit Kat’s “maximum breakability” can be attributed to “refined praline software, crisp waferware and its unique chocolate unibody.” The ‘Tech Spec’ page is pretty great, too, as is the… well… maybe you should just check them all out! And for a better understanding of what exactly is going on, check out the Android website, Hershey’s website, or this article on Marketing Land.

In short, Kit Kat has redone their site as though a Kit Kat were a smartphone. Why would they do that, you might ask? The answer is simple – Android is naming their next version, Android 4.4, KitKat! (And the little Android guy is even cuter when he’s made up of Kit Kats!)

As adorable as the Android mascot is, chances are pretty good that we aren’t going to be branching out into mobile phones at Blair Candy. That said, we do happen to be a great resource for the edible variety of Kit Kats! They don’t need a case, they taste terrific, and they’re a whole lot cheaper than a new phone, too. Sure, you can’t talk on them, but you shouldn’t talk with a mouthful of chocolate anyway!

Which version of Kit Kats are your favorite? Regular Kit Kat candy bars, King Size Kit Kat Minis, or Snack Size Kit Kats?

What Candies Would You Buy With $3,440?

Earlier today we came across an article that most certainly caught our attention – “12-Year-Old French Girl Writes Bad Checks For Candy and Pastries.” At first we thought it was going to be one of those stories where the child is both cute and naughty. You know, like perhaps she stole a check and bought a pack of gum and a lollipop? But this girl’s sweet tooth required much more than a pocket full of change’s worth of treats. Once her gig was officially up, she had dropped approximately $3,440 of someone else’s money on candy and pastries!

This dollar amount got us thinking about how far $3,440 would go at Blair Candy. And just for fun we decided to create a shopping list equaling roughly that amount! Below is a list made up of the Blair Candy team’s top picks. What candies would your $3,440 list contain?
