We’re back with some mouth watering news for REESE’S fans! That’s right, everyone’s favorite chocolate-peanut butter candy is at it again with some new treats that you’re going to want to put in your shopping cart right away.

The one we’re most excited about is one that is going to make breakfast not only the most important meal of the day, but the most delicious! Just in, is the first ever snack cake from REESE’S. Yes, you read that right… a REESE’S Snack Cake!

Have it for breakfast, a mid-morning treat, or anytime you feel in the mood for a soft baked chocolate cake topped with REESE’S peanut butter creme covered in smooth real milk chocolate.

Alright, we know you just let out a huge, “OMG!” So let’s be honest… we couldn’t wait to try these when they came in, so we snuck a few from the warehouse in to our office. One bite in and we did the whole “OMG!” thing too! Yes, they are as good as the description sounds and has quickly become one of our favorites.

Next up, is a seasonal treat that REESE’S has released for Easter 2021. The classic peanut butter cup has been mallowed-up much like what REESE’S did for Halloween with the Frankencup.

This time, however, a delicious REESE’s Peanut Butter Cup is crowned with a layer of scrumptious marshmallow creme to create the REESE’S Mallow-Top. The bottom of the cup still features REESE’S milk chocolate, so now you have a delightful combination of chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallow, and plenty of yummmmmm!

Speaking of Easter, yes we know it’s a few months away, but we’ve got Easter candy arriving daily and this year we’re expecting a truck load of new sweets from Hershey including more REESE’S favorites that we can’t wait to share with you.

From Toxic Slime Lickers to Viral Tik Tok Candy, Here’s Some Strange Sweets!

When it comes to candy, there’s no shortage of delicious, off-beat, decadent, and downright weird varieties. After all, candy is a “fun food” and around here we believe in the old saying, “there’s no such thing as too much fun!”

Today we’re going to take a look at some “fun” candy. Candy that has been turned into a celebrity of sorts for one reason or another. So let’s go!

Toxic Waste Slime Licker
Did we mention some candy is weird? Well, this one falls into that category if only for its name. The “toxic waste” is actually a liquid sour slime that you lick from a tube that has a roller on the tip. Toxic Waste Slime Lickers are a popular Halloween candy, but are also a hit year round as well for those kids who enjoy a sour treat.


Sour Smog Balls
Now here’s a really interesting sour candy! Smog Balls start out as a crunchy candy but as you enjoy them, they turn into a gummy with a sour center. For those who like a sour gummy, this is one you should add to your list to try, if only to give yourself credit for trying another “strange” candy.


Flash Poop Pops
Ok, there’s just something funny about… well… you know! If you look at your phone, you’ll probably see you use the poop emoji a lot! Anyway, that famous emoji is now the topper to what’s called a Flash Poop Pop! As the name implies, it’s part flash light, part pop. Push a button and the poop lights up. Pop the poop and enjoy a cherry cola flavored lollipop.


Fruity’s Ju-C Jelly Candies
These jelly candies have taken over Tik Tok by storm and it’s hard for us to keep them in stock! There are plenty of imitations out there, but these are the real deal, the Tik Tok candy celebrity OG if you may. Pop one in your mouth, take a bite and get ready for a flavor explosion that creates the kind of reaction that could make you the next viral Tik Tok star. Like we mentioned, these are hard to keep in stock, so if you click the link today and they’re not available, add your email address to be notified when they’re back in!

There you have it! Some of our favorite strange and weird candy. Of course, this is a very short list. Be sure to check out everything we have at blaircandy.com and find your new favorite!

Conversation Hearts Available for Valentine’s Day 2021

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and as we say around here, “it’s a pretty sweet holiday!” After all, candy is a terrific way to say “I love you!” or “Be mine!” No other candy expresses that better than a classic one – Conversation Hearts.

If you’re thinking, “I haven’t seen those in a long time,” you’re not mistaken. Conversation Hearts were manufactured by NECCO – the company behind the famous NECCO Wafers. In 2018, NECCO closed up shop and Valentine’s Day was forever changed!

But wait a minute – Spangler Candy Company to the rescue! Spangler bought the recipe for both NECCO Wafers and Conversation Hearts and brought back these two classic candy staples.

For Valentine’s Day 2021, you can once again share a box of sweets with your sweetie and enjoy the updated phrases on these heart-shaped candies such as “Bestie,” “Wink, Wink,” True Love,” and of course, “Be Mine.”

Conversation Hearts are perfect for handing out with a Valentine’s Day card, which is why this year we are making them available in a box of 36 individual packs. Each contains an assortment of flavors that may include lemon, apple, blue raspberry, strawberry, grape and orange.

Looking for other Valentine sweets? No problem! Be sure to check out all of our Valentine’s Day candy before they’re gone as many are only manufactured once a year.

If the thought of NECCO Wafers got you reminiscing about some of your favorite old time candy, don’t forget to check out our Nostalgic Candy collection.

Many of the brands you grew up with are still manufactured today but can’t be found in the big box stores, they’re only available from specialty retailers like Blair Candy.

How to Make Hot Chocolate Bombs

No matter where you are in the country, winter brings cooler weather and cooler temperatures mean it’s the perfect time to curl up with a nice cup of hot chocolate. After all, chocolate is the ultimate comfort food!

Now, you can opt for powdered mixes in a pinch, but when you want to really enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, there’s no better way than with a hot chocolate bomb.

Chocolate bombs are all the rage, and for good reason – they create the best cup of hot chocolate you’ll ever taste! But what are they? They’re milk or dark chocolate balls that contain cocoa mix and mini marshmallows inside. You then put them in your favorite mug, pour hot milk over them and as the chocolate melts, the marshmallows are released and voila! A delicious mug of hot chocolate!

Your local gourmet chocolate shop has probably been busy making (and selling out of) these trendy treats, and we sell one that’s ready-to-use (and yes, it keeps selling out). But if you’re handy in the kitchen and want to whip up a batch of bombs yourself, we’re here to help with this simple recipe.

First off, you’re going to need a few ingredients:

  • The most important is the chocolate! We recommend milk chocolate melting wafers, which are designed to melt quickly.
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Hot chocolate mix
  • Round silicone baking mold

To make your bombs:

  1. Melt the chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring in between until it’s smooth.
  2. Use a round silicone baking mold to form the bomb. Drop about a teaspoon of chocolate into the cavity of the mold and cover the sides completely to make the first half of the bomb’s shell.
  3. On a parchment lined baking sheet, invert the baking mold (chocolate side up) and pop in the freezer for a few minutes to set.
  4. Remove from the freezer and gently press on the mold to release the bomb.
  5. Fill half of the bombs with a tablespoon of hot cocoa mix and 2 tablespoons of mini marshmallows.
  6. Warm a plate of bowl of water in the microwave. Take an empty bomb half and dip the edge into this water to slightly melt the chocolate and place it on a full half bomb and seal the two pieces together.
  7. Freeze for about 30 minutes to set, then enjoy!
