How to Prevent Candy from Melting in the Summertime

We all know that the hot sun and delicious candy simply do not mix. We shouldn’t have to be deprived of our favorite summertime candy just because it’s a bit hotter outside, so how do we prevent our delectable from succumbing to the sun’s heat?

By including ice packs with your order at Blair Candy, you can protect your sweets for up to 48 hours. We suggest one ice pack per each item ordered, as UPS, US Postal and Fedex trucks are not air conditioned!

We also suggest having your candy delivered in to an address where someone is there to accept your package once it’s delivered. The longer your candy delivery sits on your porch, the more likely it is to melt.

(Although ice packs are recommended, they should be purchased as added protection, not a guarantee.)

Candy Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner on June 19th! Luckily, BlairCandy.com has fun and tasty gifts for all the special dads in your life.

The Man Can –  When shopping for Fathers Day candy gift baskets, there aren’t too many options out there. That’s why we created The Man Can! Its a unique snack gift basket with 29 candies and snacks. Its not just a regular basket, however – it resembles a paint can!

Jelly Belly Draft Beer Jelly Beans – Does he love both beer and candy? These new beer-flavored jelly beans from Jelly Belly are the best of both worlds. They  even come in a realistic beer can!

Remember, not all candy travels well in warm weather, such as chocolate or gummies. We recommend adding ice packs to your order if you choose items that are heat-sensitive.

Baseball Concession Stand Staples

There’s nothing quite like heading to the concession stand during a break in the game to purchasing a mouthwatering hot dog, salty roasted sunflower seeds, or an ice cold snow cone. Not only do concession stand treats satisfy your hunger, but there’s just something so classic about munching on these very tasty foods during a perfect summer game!

When it comes to concession stand snacking, there are a few vital staples that every game-goer tends to reach for:

Hot Dogs, Nachos, Pretzels and Fries
Days spent at the ballpark sure do work up an appetite! Foods like hot dogs and soft pretzels immediately make us think of the summertime, bringing about the timelessness of eating delicious food from the stands of your local ball park. Nachos and fries are staples for sharing or, for snacking on all on your own!

Candies and Sweets
Gummy candies, such as peach rings, Swedish Fish, and Sour Patch Kids hold well in the heat, providing sour and sweet notes that every patron is craving. Need something chewy? Big League Chew bubble gum is essential at the ballpark, and is sure to please both children and adults alike!

Ice Cream, Snow Cones, and Chilly Treats
When it comes to a sunny day spend in the stadium of your local ballpark, frozen treats are a necessity! Ice cream cones and cups, complete with a variety of toppings, are always a crown favorite. Snow cones, drizzled with fruity syrups, are a favorite of little baseball fans of all ages.
