Is Your Concession Stand Ready for the End of the Season?

The fall sports season is close to winding down and we’re already dreaming of end of season victories! While your favorite team is on the field, be sure the concession stand is ready for the end of the season too! Ensure snacks and concession candy are stored properly during the off-season. Take stock of concession supplies, such as napkins, utensils, and serving trays. You can even order re-stock early! By taking the time to inventory supplies, store snacks and candy, and clean up you’ll save lots of time before the spring season opener.

It’s National Cotton Candy Day!

December 7th is when we nationally celebrate one of our old-time favorites – cotton candy! For over 100 years, cotton candy has been a fair favorite. It was first sold to the world at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904, but wasn’t named “cotton candy” until around 1920. In England, it is known as “candy floss”.

Cotton candy is made from finely-granulated sugar that is heated and then spun into slim threads. This process is what creates the candy’s famous feathery texture, making it melt in your mouth!

At Blair Candy, we don’t only carry classic cotton candy, but you’ll also find cotton candy bubblegum and cotton candy lollipops! Shop for fun variations of your favorite treats today at your go-to supersize candy store!

It's National Peanut Day!

September 13th is National Peanut Day, and there are countless sweets and snacks to celebrate with at Blair Candy. Peanuts have become an American staple – They’re eaten at American sporting events like baseball, chopped up as ice cream toppings, and even yield the beloved spread, peanut butter! Peanuts are the #1 snack nut consumed in America, but they’re actually nut a not at all – technically, they’re legumes (simple dry fruits in the same family as beans). But don’t let this stop you from celebrating!

We’ve highlighted some of our favorite treats featuring peanuts:

PayDay Snack Bites:
New from The Hershey Company are PayDay Snack Bites! Featuring a concentration of crunchy peanuts in every bite, these bite-size treats are perfect for on-the-go snacking. Enjoy these peanut and caramel clusters in a portion-controlled, 2.5-ounce pack.

Snickers Peanut Butter Squared: If you’re a peanut-lover, there’s no doubt you’ll love indulging in these squares packed with peanuts, peanut butter, caramel, and nougat covered in milk chocolate. They’re just like the classic candy bars, only with peanut butter to thrill the peanut enthusiasts!

Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews: These classic candies include dark chocolate and delicious, roasted peanuts. The snack size peanut chocolate bars have been around for decades, and continue to please peanut lovers everywhere.

Peanut Jumbo Candy: If you love peanut brittle, you’ll love these nutty snack-size candy bars. They’re not just for the circus!

Blair is More than Candy – We’ve Got Salty Snacks, too!

When most people think of Blair Candy, they naturally think of the sweet stuff. Lollipops, licorice, gummy candy, nostalgic candy, and more. Lots more! But what you might not know is that we also stock the freshest, most sought-after snacks of the salty variety as well, perfect for filling your own pantry, or stocking a concession stand.

Our sweet tooth will always come first, but we’ve found there’s plenty of room on our shelves and in our heart for chips, Slim Jims, French Burnt Peanuts, and other salty snack must-haves. And if there’s room on your shelf and in your heart as well, here’s some tasty treats to consider adding to your order!

Lance Crackers – If you’ve never tasted Lance crackers before, now is your chance to order a new snack favorite! These affordable crackers are packed with flavor and make a great addition to school lunches or as a small something to keep hunger at bay mid-day or before dinner. We offer 2 peanut-butter filled varieties – Toasty and Toast Chee. Toasty have a more traditional cracker flavor and texture, while Toast Chee have a deliciously cheesy edge. I’m a Toast Chee crackers kind of lady myself, but they’re both great! With 0g Trans Fat and no preservatives, these are a snack you can feel good about. And with 20 packs in each box for just $6.00, your budget will love ‘em, too!

Freestone Deli Pickles – Nothing complements a sandwich and chips or a burger hot off the grill quite as perfectly as a large, crisp deli pickle! These individually-wrapped pickles are ideal for taking camping, on picnics, on road trips, and more. And, of course, you can also keep them in your fridge at home – I personally like ‘em best cold! Each is sealed in its juices in an individual pouch for maximum freshness and flavor. Choose from Dill, Kosher, Hot or Sour.

Planters Nuts – Maybe we love Planters nuts so much because of their adorable, iconic mascot, Mr. Peanut. Maybe we love Planters nuts so much because they found their flavorful beginning over 100 years ago in our home state of Pennsylvania. Or maybe we love Planters nuts so much because they’re so super good! It’s probably a combination of all those things and more, but at the end of the day, these are a Blair employee and customer favorite. You’ll find Dry Roasted Peanuts, Honey Roasted Peanuts, Salted Cashews, Dry Roasted Pistachios, Smoked Almonds and more in our extensive selection of Planters nuts.

The Best Candy Gift for Baseball Lovers is Born!

While we do love offering up pre-made candy gifts that catch our eye and happily end up in our inventory, we couldn’t help but crave the same sugar rush that came when we created our popular Custom Candy Bar Box. We loved the satisfaction that came with offering gift-givers everywhere an opportunity to personalize a truly awesome present for just $25, and from the first day it was available  on our site, you showed us that you loved it, too!

While our Custom Candy Bar Box is still a favorite that excites us, we wanted to feel the pure adrenaline of something brand new. What can we say – we’re candypreneurs! And, we came up with just the thing, at the exact right time. The latest homerun at Blair is our Can of Ball Park Treats – currently on sale for just $24.95!

We start with a gift-worthy, generously sized paint-style can, with a label that hints at the tremendous selection of treats inside. Then, working with only the finest, freshest baseball candy and snacks, we fill that tin to the brim with about 59 wrapped goodies! These include: 2 Bags of Planters Peanuts, 2 Bags of Cracker Jacks, 2 Bags of David’s Sunflower Seeds, 2 Cans of Jack Link’s Jerky Chew, 2 packs of Big League Chew, 5 Gummy Hotdogs, 5 Gummy Burgers, 8 BB Bats Taffy Lollipops, over 30 pieces of Baseball Gum, and – of course – a pack of baseball cards!

Great gifts for baseball lovers, these are also a fun tin-o-treats to pick up for yourself. You can also grab one or two to offer up in a raffle or baseball fundraiser, or to serve as tasty centerpieces at a baseball banquet or baseball-themed birthday party!

What do you think of our Can of Ball Park Treats? Do you agree we hit it out of the park with this one, or is there a candy player you would have included in the starting lineup that we missed? Let us know in the comments – and, in the meantime – play ball! Or at least eat sunflower seeds and chew some Big League like you do. 😉

5 Tips To Whip Your Concession Candy Stand Into Sweet Success

Ladies and gents, we’ve got the concession candy fundraising tips to make even Donald Trump proud. Sure, your concession candy stand may not rake in the millions, but if your goal is to raise money for the team or for a worthy cause, we know you certainly want to raise as many dollars as possible! We’ve supplied many a Little League team and school sports team with affordable concession candy – you know, Now and Later taffy, Swedish Gummy Fish, Tootsie Frooties – the works! We’ve got the experience and inside info on how you can ramp up concession candy sales.

#1: Market The Sports Game.

The first step to getting more candy sales is…getting more people to the game! Outside of parents and friends of the players, few people often know what the Little League or sports game schedule is – so how can they come buy your concession candy? Make posters advertising the team’s schedule and promoting the next game and ask the coach or players to get permission from the school to hang them around. Tell your co-workers, and ask the players to tell all their friends and families. The more people, the merrier – in fundraising!

#2: Can You Eat One Piece of Candy? They Can’t Either.

Eating just one scoop of Gummy Dolphins is pretty much impossible, right? Give each person who attends the game a raffle ticket that they can redeem for one piece or scoop of concession candy. It’s a great way to get them coming over to the stand, and chances are high that they’ll buy more.

#3: Explain What The Fundraiser Is For.

People typically feel more compelled to buy when they know their purchase is going towards a worthy cause. Post flyers around the candy stand explaining exactly what the money is going towards, and what it can help, buy, or do.

#4: Variety Is The Spice (And Sweet) Of Life.

Think outside the concession candy basics. Think Razzles, Pop Rocks, Cotton Candy Lollipops, and Sour Patch Kids for an added dash of variety to your concession stand!

#5: Make Your Concession Stand Mobile.

When you think of a major league ball game, chances are the call for “Peaaaanuttttsss” comes to mind. Add this same much-loved element to Little League and sports games by having trusted parents or school board members walk around with candy to sell. Simply place various candy varieties in a flat box, with tags noting their price. Gotta perfect that “Gummmmy Fishhhhh” call!

Good luck with your concession candy stand fundraising! As always, we do our best to keep our bulk concession candy affordable so you can get as much profit from your candy stand as possible. Do you have any tips for making your concession candy stand a homerun?
