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!

August Is National Peach Month!

August is National Peach Month – and we’re celebrating our favorite peach-flavored candies!

Perhaps the most popular peach-flavored candies are gummy peach rings – ring-shaped gummies ripe with a fresh, yummy peach flavor and an underlying layer of soft marshmallow. (Peach fuzz is replaced with a coat of sugar.) Since their invention in the 1920’s, these gummy rings have paved the way for several other fabulous flavors, like green apple and melon; but none of these alternatives have been able to match the popularity of peach rings. And nothing beats the sweet aroma that arises from a just-opened bag of them! Many of us can also recall placing a peach ring on each finger and admiring some sweet jewelry before ripping them off with our teeth.  Peach gummies are also available in the form of sour peach slices.

If you’re feeling nostalgic after enjoying peach rings this month, try indulging in some peach chews! These bite-sized candies consist of chewy taffy that’s individually wrapped and infused with yummy peach flavor.

Perhaps newest to the family of peach-flavored candies are Peach Lemonade Tic Tac’s! These tiny candies start with a peach flavor, and change to lemonade as they melt in your mouth. We can’t think of any candy that’s better to enjoy on a summer day!

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.
