It’s Almost National Gummy Worm Day!

gummy candyJuly 15th is National Gummy Work Day! Gummy worms are a candy that everyone loves, either in regular or sour forms. Eat individually, add to Jell-O, or to a famous dirt pudding and they’re irresistible. So what’s the history behind this well-loved gummy candy?

According to candy historians, gummy worms originated in 1922 in Germany. However, it was candy maker Trolli who introduced them to the US in the 1980’s. But why worms? Apparently, Trolli wanted to make something “gross enough looking to shock parents and simultaneously attract children.”

While the rest is history, both Trolli and Haribo have their own versions of this creepy crawly gummy candy. Many worms are the combinations of flavors, making them striped. The most common combos are red/orange, red/white, and green/yellow. There are also the original gummy and sour sugar flavors that are both pretty popular.

Do you like gummy worms? Have a preference for sour vs. sweet? You can read more about your favorite treat here on the Huffington Post. Whichever you choose, we hope you have a Happy National Gummy Worm Day! Shop all of your favorites at BlairCandy.com and celebrate every day!

Happy National Chocolate Day!

Happy National Chocolate Day! Chocolate seems to be loved by all, even in the smallest amount. Chocolate is the main staple of Halloween treats, Valentines gifts, and just a pick-me-up here and there. So no wonder we love it! But what’s the history of this decadent treat?

Chocolate and Snickers In Bulk | BlairCandycom Many historians say that chocolate has been a part of our diets for around 2,000 years. However modern research and the Smithsonian say it’s been around longer. The Aztecs were able to be one of the first communities to actually use the cacao bean, but as currency! They later used it in rituals and consumed it.

The Europeans can be credited with actually sweetening chocolate with honey or cane sugar. Chocolate was too bitter for the foreigner’s tastes at first, but once sweetened became a popular drink. They also believed it had nutritious, medicinal, and aphrodisiac properties.

Solid chocolate couldn’t have been created without the help of a Dutch chemist, who in 1828 created powdered chocolate. This discovery leads to the first modern chocolate bar, created by Joseph Fry roughly twenty years later.  Then another 20 years later, Cadbury began selling boxes of chocolate and Nestle started selling milk chocolate. From there, the chocolate we know and love is now typical and the rest is history.

To read more about chocolate’s fascinating history, visit the Smithsonian for even more details. If this has made you crave a bar of chocolate or two, visit BlairCandy.com! There you’ll find classic chocolate bars, nostalgic favorites, and even your favorite chocolate bars, like Snickers in bulk. Happy National Chocolate Day!
