Jim Beam Homemade Fudge – Made with Bourbon Whiskey

Calling all fudge lovers!  We have a real unique treat for you – Jim Beam Homemade Fudge.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Gardiners of Scotland have taken their famous fudge recipe, that’s been handed down for three generations, and created a delicious fudge made with Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey.

Gardiners makes all of their fudge in Scotland by hand in small batches using traditional methods that have made it one of the most sought after treats around the world.

Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey is carefully infused in the fudge to retain the unique flavor and vanilla and honey aroma of the whiskey that has been around for over 200 years.

The rich, delicious fudge is perfect as a snack, with an after-dinner coffee, or for enjoying along with a bit of Jim Beam, of course.

Each piece of fudge is individually wrapped and comes in a decorative tin that’s perfect as a gift for any fudge or whiskey lover.  Contains no hydrogenated oils or fats.

Looking for a more traditional type of fudge?  Have no fear!  We have a whopping 6-pound box of old fashioned homemade fudge that is fresh and delicious.

Our Favorite White Chocolate Treats

We’re dreaming of some white… chocolate! Yes, white chocolate. It’s one of those sweet treats you either love or hate. In our case, we share the love equally among white, dark, and milk chocolate because each offers a unique taste.

Our candy warehouse is packed full of all types of chocolate candy, but today we’re turning the spotlight on five favorite white chocolate treats that fans of this confectionary delight may or may not have had the opportunity to try.

Toblerone White Chocolate Bars
Always a favorite, Toblerone comes from Swiss chocolatiers who have artfully created a candy bar that looks as great as it tastes. This variety of the famous bar features a honey and almond nougat that’s covered in a rich and creamy white chocolate.


M & M’s White Chocolate
White chocolate fans rejoice! The snack that melts in your mouth, not in your hands is now available with a white chocolate center. They may look like milk chocolate M & M’s on the outside, but inside they’re full of that unique white chocolate taste you’re going to love.


M & M’s White Chocolate Peanut
Not to be outdone by the original, the peanut variety of M & M’s also comes in a white chocolate variety. If you haven’t tried these, let’s just say they may quickly become one of your favorites.


Kit Kat White Chocolate Bars
Move over original Kit Kats and make way for the white chocolate version of everyone’s favorite wafer. The Kit Kat bar has been around for nearly 85 years but it wasn’t until the late 1990’s that a white chocolate version became available.


Reese’s White Peanut Butter Cups
There’s no denying that peanut butter and chocolate go great together which is why we can never have enough Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups around to snack on. But, have you tried the white chocolate variety yet? If you haven’t you don’t know what you’re missing!

Those are our five favorite white chocolate candy picks. If you’re looking to try some of these, be sure to visit our online candy store and stock up on these as well as all your favorite treats including nostalgic candy that is sure to bring back memories.

Kinder Bueno Bar – Now Available for the First Time in the United States!

We get excited every time new items arrive in our candy warehouse, but this week our excitement level was kicked up a notch when a particular candy bar arrived.

This isn’t just any candy bar, we’re talking about the third most popular candy bar in Europe and the sixth most popular candy bar in the world… yes, the entire world!

The Italian company that brought us Nutella, Ferrero, has finally made their wildly popular Kinder Bueno Bar available for the first time in the United States and needless to say it’s now available from Blair Candy.

The Kinder Bueno Bar is no ordinary candy bar. It’s a candy bar that can only be described as a complex symphony of flavors and textures that is simply luscious. That’s quite a statement, but trust us on this one!

This insanely popular candy bar features a crispy wafer that’s filled with a decadent hazelnut filling (think Nutella), covered with smooth milk chocolate, and drizzled with rich dark chocolate.

Is your mouth watering yet? Yeah, we thought so!

Originally introduced in Italy in 1991, it took quite a while for the Kinder Bueno Bar to finally make its way to the States – and we can’t be any happier.

Be one of the first to get a taste of this candy bar that comes directly from the factory in Italy by ordering a box or two today. We’re pretty confident it’s going to become one of your top favorite sweet treats after just one bite.

All Pink Starburst Now Available!

When it comes to candy, we all have our favorites.  From a classic nostalgic candy like Black Jack Gum or Candy Cigarettes to timeless favorites like the original Swedish Fish we all have that one treat that is our go-to.

The other day a debate raged in our candy warehouse about which flavor of a particular candy was everyone’s favorite.  Yes, someone started the great Starbust flavor debate! We’re pretty sure that from the day Starburst was introduced back in 1960 spirited discussions were had based on which one of the four flavors is best.

If you pick up a pack of Starburst Originals, you’ll find an assortment of lemon, orange, cherry, and strawberry soft fruit chews.  You may search for a cherry one first, or go straight to a juicy blast of tart lemon to begin your adventure.  

But which of the four is the most popular Starburst flavor?

If you happened to say Strawberry, you’re right!  The pink jewel wrapped in that sometimes hard to open wax paper wrapper is so popular that the flavor is now available all by itself!

No longer do you need to pick up a pack of Starburst Originals and take out all the pink ones and leave the rest for those who think cherry or lime is much better.  Starburst All Pink is just that, a package bursting with just one flavor – strawberry.

So if you’re looking for some all pink Starburst for yourself or someone else, be sure to pick up a box and get ready to be in candy heaven.

If you’re looking for some all red, you’ll just have to hang in there or pick up the ones left from your strawberry loving friends!
