Every candy lover has a favorite genre of candy, whether it is gummies, chocolate, or gum. Sour and sweet is a classic combination that the more daring seem to gravitate towards. Here are a few delights currently in stock!

Sour Patch Kids Fire

That well-known slogan of “first they’re sour and then they’re sweet” feels like it has been around forever, but it has only been since 1985 that Sour Patch Kids have been present in the United States. First produced in Ontario, Canada, Sour Patch Kids started out as little Martians during the space craze of the 70s. They changed to kids in the 80s when Cabbage Patch Kids took over. If you like sour with a little heat, give Sour Patch Kids Fire a try!

WarHeads Super Sour Spray Candy

WarHeads are next-level sour. Do you remember in elementary school when you and your friends would have competitions to see who could keep one of these candies in their mouth the longest? Well if not, there is still time to give it a try as an adult! These were first invented in Taiwan in 1975 and came to the US in the early 80s and they are here to stay. If you are a little adventurous, you might want to give WarHeads Super Sour Spray a try! Available in watermelon, blue raspberry, and apple, this is a fun novelty that you should not miss.

AirHeads Xtremes Sour Belts

AirHeads are another 80s classic. The original version that we all know and love does not necessarily have a sour flavor but instead features more of a tang. That said, these Xtremes Sour Belts in Rainbow Berry deliver on the sour while also being really delightful to look at!

When you find yourself in the mood for something sweet and sour, head to BlairCandy.com! We’ve got you covered.

Get Ready for Halloween with Fun Size Candy Bars

While the king-sized version of your favorite candy bar might seem like the most intriguing option on the shelf, sometimes big flavor can come in small packages too. The mini or fun-sized version of your favorite candy bar is great when you need a quick bite of sweetness, plus it is perfect for the Halloween season! Here are a few of our favorites.

Twix Fun Size Candy Bars | BlairCandy.com

Twix Fun Size

The Twix Bar hit the scene in the United Kingdom in 1967 and eventually migrated west to the United States by the early 80s. Over the years, there have been various iterations of this classic including Twix with peanut butter and triple chocolate Twix, but nothing can replace the smooth milk chocolate, crisp cookies, and creamy caramel of a classic Twix. Whether you prefer the left or right side, you will find satisfaction in a bag of bite size Twix!

Milky Way Mini’s

Sticking with the caramel theme but throwing it back a few more decades brings us to the Milky Way! 1923 brought us the first version of this candy bar that continues to serve up flavor that is out of this world. Featuring rich chocolate, smooth caramel, and chewy nougat, we can’t get enough of these, plus, when they are mini that means you can have more than one! We have a 20 lb. bulk box filled with mini versions of the galactic treat at BlairCandy.com.

Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

When Peanut Butter met Chocolate, it was a match made in heaven. No one does it better than Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Hershey’s Milk Chocolate was combined with peanut butter by the H.B. Reese Candy Company in the 1920s. The rest is history! The mini version can be enjoyed on its own or it works well as the start of a Halloween craft – candy spiders anyone?

Get in the Mood for Fall with Autumn Mix Candy!

As summer wanes, the persistent heat – depending on where you are, of course – leaves many of us daydreaming about cool, crisp weather. Although the first official day of autumn does not roll around until September 23rd this year that does not mean that we can’t start preparing physically and mentally for the fall!

Stock Up on Fall Scented Candles

The scents of fall are much warmer and spicier than summer. It is all about the cinnamon and nutmeg! Mulled apple cider, pumpkin spice lattes, hot apple pie – all of these are enjoyable scents that come in candle form that you can fill your home with.

Start Planning for Halloween

Whether you will be taking the little ones trick-or-treating or you are planning an adult Halloween bash, now is the time to start thinking about the fun of costumes and candy! Halloween treats are starting to become available and you can stock up to beat the rush.

Set out a Bowl of BRACH’S Autumn Mix

However you choose to embrace the autumnal season, BlairCandy.com will be ready and waiting to take care of all your candy needs!

Why Smarties Squashies will be Your New Favorite

Since 1949, Smarties candies have been a sweet staple for any candy lover. They are also a Halloween favorite that acts as an excellent palette cleanser in between a Milky Way and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup (just as an example).
