Tootsie Rolls: All Wrapped Up!

If you’re like us, you are absolutely inundated with Tootsie Rolls during Halloween, and with good reason. These small chocolatey snacks are the perfect size when you need to satisfy that midday chocolate craving. They also are great to keep in candy dishes, desk drawers, or in your son or daughter’s lunch bag. As a matter of fact, there really isn’t a place where Tootsie Rolls won’t fit!

Since Tootsie Rolls are individually wrapped (they delightfully spin when you unwrap them!), the one thing you’re left with after indulging in a roll or two is the distinctive brown, red, and white wrapper. While you could simply throw out the wrappers, where’s the fun in that? We found some great tutorials online, showing fun and unique ways to use the Tootsie wrapper after you’ve eaten the candy.

Over at Plum Pudding, they have a wonderful post detailing how to turn a bag of Tootsie Roll wrappers into a stylish belt. All you need are common household craft items like scissors, packing tape, and double stick tape and 2 d-rings, which can be found at your favorite fabric store.

Poking around eHow, we found this great lesson about creating those crazy purses and bags out of candy wrappers. You’ve seen these bags in stores everywhere, but you might not have known that you can make them yourself. All you need is a free day and a LOT of Tootsie Roll wrappers. Once you master the initial fold technique, you’ll be on your way to having a “sweet” purse!

Do you have any Tootsie Roll wrapper craft ideas? Let us know in the comments!

Halloween Candy Sale – Get Yours Before It’s Gone!

It’s a bit hard to believe that Halloween is just a week away. In the candy world, we start gearing up well in advance, but once the orders start rolling in, it flies by so fast! Luckily, we’ve still got plenty of ghoulishly good Halloween candy to choose from, and a lot of it is available at a scary good price. Rather than wait until after the holiday to start our sale, we’ve got it going on now so you can save in time for the trick-or-treaters.

Here’s a few of our Halloween candy favorites on sale – just be sure to get them before they disappear into the dark until next year!

Cadbury Screme Eggs – Nope, that’s not a typo. Building on the popularity of the Crème Egg, Cadbury whipped up this spooktacular sweet for the Halloween season. These bring the same taste of their Crème Egg cousins, but bear a green ‘yolk’ and wrapper all their own. This box of 48 Screme Eggs normally sells for $40, but is on sale for just $33 – 18% off!

Charms Candy Corn Pops – These are honestly one of my favorite new Halloween candies on the market; I’ve eaten more than my fair share, and we still have some left! The taste is definitely reminiscent of candy corn, but my taste buds also pick up on a rich, hint of butterscotch that is addictively tasty! Regularly $3.50 for a bag of 20 Halloween lollipops, they’re currently $2.95.

Mike and Ike Halloween Mix – Which of these assorted treats will be your favorite – Mummy’s Mix or Vampire Variety? There’s only one way to find out, and each assorted bag contains both! Inside you’ll find 45 individual bags of Mike and Ike candies, perfect for handing out to trick-or-treaters or including in yours or your children’s lunches. Now just $5.85!

Having Fun with Candy Themes this Halloween – Make Your Home a Candy Restaurant!

There are few things in this world as innately fun and exciting as candy, so coming up with clever ways to hand it out is hardly what we would call work. But sometimes you do hit a creative candy wall! If you’re looking for an inventive way to display your Halloween candy this year, we’ve come up with a fun idea that some of us just might have to try ourselves. And the extra good news is that it also solves the dilemma of what to wear…

Tonight, you’re the Server of Sweets!

Whether or not you don a waiter or waitress uniform is entirely up to you, but we think that getting into character is especially fun. Not up for the time or money involved in a full costume? Simply grab an apron and you’re set! As for what Halloween candy to serve at your restaurant, here’s a few ideas…

Breakfast

Gummi Fried Eggs
Gummy Strawberry Creams

Lunch

Gummy Burgers
Gummy Hot Dogs

Dinner

SpongeBob Krabby Patties
Gummi Pizza

Dessert

Gummy Cheesecake Candy
Caramel Apple Lollipops

Once you have all your candy mapped out, consider making ‘menus’ that you can give to kids that show up at your ‘restaurant’. These can be as simple as index cards or as elaborate as you’d like. Only get a handful of trick-or-treaters at your house? Let them choose something for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert! Is the doorbell ringing a bit more often? Cut it down to 1 or 2 categories as fits the crowd. The memorable part won’t be how much candy you gave them, but the unique and fun way in which it was given. Be sure to maintain character as a server, carefully adding their selections to their treat tote and warning that the plate is hot!

The best part is that you can take the restaurant theme and make it as simple or as complex as you’d like. You can hang a restaurant sign outside, have a set of chairs at your entryway for those ‘waiting for a table’, and so on. Want to get your spouse or children involved? They can serve as hosts, or a restaurant manager who pops in to see how everything is going. Want to make the setting nostalgic? Have fun with a diner theme that can also be rather spooky! Think of restaurants from your favorite scary movies and set the stage in your own kitchen. And don’t forget the candy, of course – order up!

Halloween Candy and Supplies Are Here!

It’s become a fiesta of Fun Size goodies here at Blair Candy, with new Halloween candy treats and supplies arriving every day! The orders are already coming in from Halloween fans across the country – folks who know how quickly the best and newest candies can sell out. We do our best every year to ensure we have enough Halloween candy to carry us through October 31st, but sometimes we can’t predict which will have the most popularity.

Sure, Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins are a top pick year after year, and we’re certainly never surprised by how many orders for Skull Lollipops come through! But we do add new treats every season that you’ll want to scoop up fast to ensure your sweet tooth gets satisfied. And with Halloween itself growing in popularity every year, shopping early for all your Halloween candy and supplies might be best!

BlairCandy.com offers Halloween candy classics as well as new candy creations. Some people come to our site for the latest in sweets, like these groovy goodies, Tie Dye Lollipops! Others love our nostalgic candy offerings, like Wax Fangs, Necco’s Mary Jane candy, and Slap Stix caramel pops. Others still – most, in fact – love both! Mixing classics from our childhood with newer candies that might become the classics of tomorrow is not only fun, but gives us a good variety in the event that we have some sweet, sweet leftovers to eat up ourselves!

BlairCandy.com puts the greatest focus on the candy side of Halloween, but we’re also excited to offer Halloween party supplies, including colorful balloons, napkins and table covers, plastic spider rings, and adorable soft treat baskets that can be used as decoration or for Trick-or-Treating!

It’s October 24th. Do You Know Where Your Halloween Candy Is?

For as quickly as September slipped away, October went and won the race for speed! Even if these last 7 days trickle by like molasses, this month will surely come out on top for fastest. But just like December, October holds one of her most exciting days for the very last day of the month, and with that happy holiday on the horizon, we can’t quite find it in ourselves to complain that the month is almost over!

Yes, in just a week Halloween will be here, in all its ghoulish, goblin-y glory. And for as cool as all the costumes are, and as devilishly delightful the decorations, Halloween just isn’t Halloween without the candy! Have you been putting off Halloween candy shopping for fear that you would eat it all before the 31st? Don’t worry – you won’t find any judgment here; we’ve done it, too! But with Halloween just a week away, the time for candy shopping is now or never. And Blair Candy still has plenty of awesome choices available and ready to rock your goodie bags. Let’s look at 3 fun and unique options…

Glow Stick Pumpkin Lollipops – When it comes to trick-or-treating, the only thing that’s more important than having fun is being safe. The simple fact is that it’s getting dark earlier and earlier, and the brighter your costume and accessories the better. These lollipops help make it a bit easier to be seen with a stick that snaps and glows like a traditional glow stick. Kids should still carry flashlights and wear reflective gear, of course, but this adds a little extra illumination that’s also just plain cool!

Twisted Terrors Halloween Lollipops – Do you prefer to give 1 or 2 ‘big treats’ instead of a bag of smaller ones? Twisted Terrors lollipops are perfect for you! Each box contains 24 twirled lollipops in the shades of the season, which are decked out with 4 Halloween plastic rings shaped like skulls, spiders, pumpkins and witches. A super unique lollipop for kids ages 3 and up, these are sure to elicit at least a few exclamations of “Awesome!”

Palmer Eye Candy Mix – This bag proves that the eyeballs have it! The chocolate eyeballs, eyeball bubble gum and eyeball lollipops, that is. It’s not hard to ‘see’ that this is a full-on bag o’ fun, and with 60 pieces per bag it’s an awesomely affordable way to ‘envision’ Halloween goodie bags that are an absolute ‘ball’ for kids to dig into! OK, we’ll stop now. :P

Sugar Free Peeps: A New Halloween Candy Must-Have!

It’s no secret that candy can be a sweet part of a balanced diet, whether you are on the path toward losing a few pounds, working to maintain your current weight, or are simply mindful of everything you eat on the journey to be as healthy as possible. What most of us have learned, whether we like it or not, is moderation is key! It turns out there is a difference between one serving of Peanut M&M’s and one bag of Peanut M&M’s. Oops. And as we all know too well, M&M’s are far from the only candy that makes a limit a tricky task. One other such treat is marshmallow Peeps.

Sure, we open the package knowing we should just have one or two. We open the package with the best of intentions. We open the package thinking, “These Peeps will last me a week! I will have no more than 2 per day, because I have self control!” But…that doesn’t always happen. And it’s not our fault! Once that ooey-gooey goodness touches the tongue, stepping on the brakes is so hard. Once that plump, pillow of sweet marshmallow finds its way to your mouth you are no longer responsible for what becomes of the package of Peeps. You are only human! Since the dawn of time, humans have been no match for marshmallows. It’s just science!

Shed no tears, marshmallow-lover. In this great battle between a balanced diet and that undefeated enemy – Peeps – there is someone in your corner. Someone you may have least expected. Yes, coming into the ring with an orange satin robe trailing behind is none other than Sugar Free Peeps! *The crowd goes wild!*

Who is this Sugar Free Peeps? What is the relation to regular Peeps? Don’t worry, there isn’t a soap opera-worthy family rivalry that you’ll find yourself smack dab in the middle of. Sugar Free Peeps and regular Peeps are practically besties! They’re both cute and colorful, and they both taste delicious. It’s just that the Sugar Free variety aren’t as likely to leave you bouncing off the walls at midnight because you accidentally ate six servings while you were watching Law & Order. They’re also a great choice for people who must closely watch their sugar intake, and those who simply prefer the taste of Splenda. As for me? I think I’ll keep both in the cupboard. I can “mmmm” my way through a pack of Sugar Free Peeps any day, but sometimes I like to bounce off the walls at midnight. When else is the bathroom going to get cleaned?! :)

Halloween Candy Classics: Let Them Eat Chocolate!

As deliciously untradeable as you and I may think they are, there will always be kids willing to take Mary Jane Candy and Gobstoppers to the Halloween bargaining table. It won’t be all of them, of course…but it will be some. And it won’t just be Mary Janes and Gobstoppers. There will be Smarties open for candy negotiation, Sugar Daddy lollipops awaiting a switch, Tootsie Pops added to the auction. And why would kids be willing to part with these sweets – the very bounty that is their pay for a long night of Trick-or-Treating? For one reason, and one reason only: chocolate.

Rest assured that the taste buds of today’s youth are very much intact, and they are fully capable of enjoying each of the above treats just as much as you or me. And, to be sure, almost any other time of year they would gobble them up without a second thought. Trade? What trade? Nom, nom, gone. But to be certain, this isn’t any other time of year. This is the time of year that comes immediately after ‘if I don’t eat this chocolate bar in 30 seconds or less it will melt all over everything within 5 feet of me.’ You know…that time of year!

Outside of a well-chilled chocolate bar here and there, fresh from the fridge or freezer, it has been months since we’ve been able to trust a candy bar not to melt into a pile of ‘oh no!’ at the bottom of our purses and backpacks. And in kid months, a few months is at least 4 ½ years. It seems like another lifetime when they were able to leave a Kit Kat in the car! And as such, the fall marks a return not only to school, changing leaves, pumpkin carving and long sleeves – it is also, more importantly, a return to chocolate. And NOTHING holds more value than that at the Halloween bargaining table.

If you’ve already got all the candy you need for trick-or-treaters, there’s no need to stress if you haven’t included chocolate bars in the mix. They may trade some of their stash for chocolate, but will surely partake of other favorites as well. And once chocolate fever has calmed down a bit and they are more accustomed to the chocolate-friendly temperature, their universal love of all candy will return! But if you haven’t got all your Halloween treat sacks packed just yet, consider adding some Fun Size Snickers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins and M&M’s. Chocolate candy currency has never been worth more than it is now, and you could make the trick-or-treaters that find their way to your house the ‘richest’ kids in town.

Help Get Your Home Ready for Fall with Halloween Candy

It might just be our imagination, but the consensus at Blair Candy Headquarters is that September was the fastest month this year! It seems we just turned the calendar page, and tomorrow we will be turning it again. While we hate to see time move so quickly, when each passing day gets us closer to Halloween, we can hardly complain! Not only is it a fun-packed holiday full of sweets, but decorating for Halloween is a treat unto itself.

As much as I love my pretty Christmas décor, the creepy, cute, and creatively-designed decorations for Halloween are my favorite. And this year, I’ll be adding plenty of edible awesomeness to my decorations by incorporating Halloween candy into the design!

Decorating with Halloween candy can be as simple or as complex as you like. We’ve put together a little list of ideas for how you can add something sweet to your decorations this year, but don’t be limited by our ideas! Use as many or as few as you like, and always feel free to exercise your creativity and see what you can dream up. Just don’t forget to share it with us in the comments so we can try it, too!

Break out the Halloween candy bowls. Whether they are shaped like pumpkins and ghosts, or are simply ceramic bowls in the shades of the season, scattering candy bowls throughout your house not only adds a homey touch, but makes it easy to grab a caramel apple pop or two no matter which room you’re in!

Show the sweeter side of potted plants. If your thumb is lacking a green hue as much as mine, chances are good that you’ve lost more than one potted plant in your day. So what’s a guy or girl to do with all those pretty, empty pots? Fill them with marbles or decorative rocks of course! Once your pot is filled to within an inch or so of the top, plant some Halloween lollipops inside. Our witch finger lollipops won’t wilt like a daisy or sunflower, and they taste a lot better, too. So don’t be surprised if some of your ‘flowers’ go missing as time goes on!

Let guests know they’re being watched! We don’t recommend actually spying on your friends and family members, but you can add to the creepy feeling of being watched by adding gumball eyes throughout your home. Peeking out from behind pictures, sitting next to the hand soap in the bathroom, hanging from strings inside the refrigerator door – anywhere spotting a set of eyes peeking back will freak someone out is the perfect location!

And don’t forget one of the biggest advantages of all to decorating with candy – there’s no storage required. Simply snack your way to a post-Halloween house come November 1st. You don’t have to pack it away when you ‘pack it away’! ;)

Sugar Free and Gluten Free Halloween Candy at Blair!

Whether you are shopping for candy that works with your own dietary needs, or want to ensure that every Trick-or-Treater that stops by will find something that suits their needs in your bowl, our Sugar Free Halloween Candy and Gluten Free Halloween Candy sections are for you!

Following a gluten free or sugar-conscious diet can be tricky at times, and the holidays are perhaps the hardest times of all. But for as difficult as it can be to turn down a treat that it seems everyone but you can eat, you know you’re doing what’s best for you! And luckily, while you, your children, or a few Trick-or-Treaters may have restrictions on what they can consume, candy is not an all-or-nothing indulgence. In fact, BlairCandy.com offers a delicious assortment of sugar free candy and gluten free candy that would tempt any tastebud!

Gluten Free Halloween Candy

Many people are surprised by some of the candy they find in our gluten free selection. These aren’t specialty candies that you’ve never heard of – they’re favorites that we’ve all been happily enjoying for many years. They just happen to be gluten free as well as scrumdiddlyumptious! Some All-Stars you might recognize best include Butterfinger candy bars, M&M’s, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Gummy candy is also often gluten free, and your many mouthwatering options include Gummy Peaches, Trolli Strawberry Puffs, and a favorite of so many kids – Sour Gummy Worms!

Sugar Free Halloween Candy

What’s soft, orange, oh-so-yummy, and melts in your mouth? We’ll give you a hint…It’s not carrots, and it rhymes with ‘beeps’. Ohhh, it must be Peeps! But these aren’t just any Peeps; these are Sugar Free Peeps shaped like pumpkins! Each pack contains three petite Peep pumpkins sweetened with Splenda, ready to brighten your day the sugar free way.

Prefer something that lasts a little longer? Because let’s face it…if there are Peeps in the house, they don’t exactly get a lot of time in the pantry before they’re in someone’s belly. And for those times that you need a sugar free candy fix and the Peeps have gone missing, or you are filling a few sugar free Halloween treat bags to have at the ready, our selection of Brach’s sugar free hard candy makes a sweet choice. Choose from sugar free versions of candy classics we all love, including butterscotch hard candy and cinnamon hard candy.

To make it easy for kids and parents alike to know you have sugar free and gluten free candy available for Trick-or-Treaters, consider setting up 3 baskets or boxes to hold your Halloween treat bags. Simply attach a ‘Sugar Free Halloween Candy’ index card to one, and a ‘Gluten Free Halloween Candy’ index card to another to separate the sweets. Affixing the identifying cards with a clothespin should do the trick for your treats!

Cool, Colorful Halloween Lollipops Are Frighteningly Fun and Flavorful!

Just like a book, a person, and countless other things in life, you can’t always judge a candy by its cover. There are plenty of sweets out there that might not win a beauty contest, but are a beautiful treat to the tongue where it counts! But just as we can’t assume less-than-pretty candies won’t be delicious, we also can’t assume that candy with a cute, clever and colorful style is getting by on looks alone. Yes, some candies really do have it all – the eye-catching appeal, the delicious flavor, and in some cases, their own handle! OK, to be fair it’s not really a handle, it’s a stick. But it sure does make eating lollipops easier, and lollipops are what we’re looking at today. Halloween Lollipops, to be exact, since Halloween is fast on its way! :D

Coffin Creepers Halloween Lollipops – As if the clever coffin packaging wasn’t enough to make these a must-have, the adorable little creatures peeking out from the windows captured every heart at Blair the moment these arrived. One of my favorite things about Halloween is all things ‘scary cute’, and these are topping my list this year. As for the flavors, my personal fave is Bone Rattlin’ Blue Raspberry (plus, I can’t resist his oversize innocent smile!), but Vampire Very Cherry and Mummy Wrap Green Apple are scary good as well.


Crazy Bones Lollipops – These tiny little lollis feature a fruity, round lollipop top attached to…a plastic arm or leg! Yes, where you might expect the elbow or knee to be you’ll find candy instead, which means that while eating a Crazy Bones lollipops everyone sees a little hand or little foot peeking out of your mouth! As for the flavors, these come in an assortment of classics: orange, grape and green apple. And while we don’t know for sure, we think they taste better than a real arm or leg by a landslide!

Twister Terror Halloween Lollipops – These cherry-flavored lollipops have a funky, modern feel to them, but also have an element of classic candy charm with their twist design. This update on an old-fashioned candy store staple is re-imagined in the shades of Halloween – orange, black and white – and decked out with 4 awesome Halloween rings per pop before being wrapped and cinched with a black ribbon! These make a memorable treat for friends, family and trick-or-treaters, who always remember the houses that give out the best stuff!
