Bulk Candy Corn for National Candy Corn Day | BlairCandy.com

Candy corn…you either love it or you hate it! Regardless of how you feel about it, October 30th is National Candy Corn Day! Grab a handful of this classic fall candy and check out some facts about it that you may not have known about:

Candy Corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger and the Wunderle Candy Company, but later mass produced by Goelitz Candy Company, now known as the Jelly Belly Candy Company. Originally, candy corn had to be made by hand, each color being added on separately and molded into shape. Because of how time consuming this was, they decided to make this a seasonal candy, like how crops were harvested seasonally. With this and the shape, Candy Corn came to be.

Since then, Candy Corn has been made into different variations. Kernels with brown tops, called Indian Corn for Thanksgiving, and even red and green “corn” for Christmas. This “mellocreme” candy has also been made into pumpkins. Regardless of what it’s been made into, over 35 million pounds will be made this fall. That’s roughly 9 billion kernels will go into candy dishes and treat bags. You’ll even find candy corn flavored products, from cookies, drinks, even bagels!

Grab a small bag or a bag of bulk candy corn on BlairCandy.com today to celebrate!

Fall vs. Halloween: Which Peeps Do You Choose?

Fall & Halloween Peeps | BlairCandy.com It’s funny to think that Peeps used to just be an Easter candy when they now have flavors and types for all holidays now. With Halloween around the corner and fall in full swing, we thought it was time to break out the fall and Halloween Peeps. But which do you choose?

Fall Peeps: These are shaped into the classic chick shape that Peeps are famous for, but are flavored into different fall flavors. Choose from pumpkin spice, caramel apple, and candy corn flavors instead of the plain flavors we’re used to. These chicks are also dipped in either caramel or white chocolate, really stepping up the game for Peep flavors.

Halloween Peeps: These peeps are the more traditional flavors you’re used to. A fluffy marshmallow with a coating of fine, sweet sugar is what you’ll find in these packages. But, these Peeps are shaped as your favorite Halloween characters. Choose from ghosts, Frankenstein heads, tombstones, and pumpkins for a fun treat!

So which will you choose? Grab your Halloween and fall peeps today for a festive treat. If you make anything out of your Peeps, be sure to tag us on social media! Shop all Peeps now at BlairCandy.com.
