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.)

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!

Sweet Candy Ice Cream Ideas

Sweet summertime is here and that means lots and lots of ice cream! This summer, why not take your creamy frozen treats up a notch? How so, you may wonder? With candy ice cream toppings and other fun additions! Check out these fun ice cream and candy pairings and deliciously frozen ideas:

Smores-style ice cream: The only way to make this campfire favorite ever more enticing? Ice cream-ifying it! Create a deconstructed smores-style ice cream treat by spooning marshmallow topping onto a few scoops of chocolate ice cream. Sprinkle with crushed graham crackers and voila! Smores ice cream!

Salted caramel pretzel ice cream: All you need for this enticing treat is vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, and salted pretzels. The sweetness of the caramel pairs fantastically well with the salted pretzels, create that salty-sweet taste that we know you love.

Monster Ice Cream: Here’s a take on the classic monster cookie. Vanilla ice cream is the perfect base for the sweet toppings in this recipe. Simply sprinkle a scoop of vanilla with chopped nuts, mini M&Ms, and chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups for a full-of-flavor chilly treat!

Whoppers Ice Cream: Love the taste and texture of these sweet little malted milk balls? All you need is malted milk powder! Sprinkle a spoonful or two atop a scoop of your favorite flavor. To mimic Whoppers, we suggest using chocolate ice cream!

“Snickers” Ice Cream: Sure, you can add chopped snickers to the top of your ice cream, but why not infuse the flavors of a snickers bar throughout the entire scoop? Spoon caramel sauce and hot fudge on top of a scoop of ice cream (we suggest vanilla or peanut butter), and simply sprinkle on some chopped peanuts and you’ve got a cone-full of snickers!

The Almond Joy: Coconut pairs perfectly with summer, don’t you think? Sprinkle shredded coconut and chopped almonds overtop a scoop of chocolate for a fun frozen twist on the Almond Joy!

Celebrate the start of summer with one of these delicious candy-inspired ice cream treats. Let us know which one is your favorite!
