Bring The Fruit Bowl To The Party – The Trolli Gummy Candy Fruit Bowl, That Is!

It’s always nice to bring a yummy treat to a summer cookout or party – it shows consideration for the host and adds a touch of delicious variety to the great foods already on the menu. Add a unique touch to summer parties by bringing along a fruit bowl – a Trolli Gummy Candy fruit bowl!

The Trolli candy company was born just after World War II, in 1948, in Germany, by Willy Mederer.  Unlike the gummy candy it’s famous for today, Trolli produced noodles and pasta. Production soon expanded to peppermint candies, and they began supplying candy shops around Germany with their candy creations.

Trolli continued to be a success, and the Trolli we know today was officially founded in 1975. Trolli is to gummy candy what Hershey is to candy bars – a recognizable household name and taste that is simply unparalleled.

Party and cookout guests will love that you had the creative imagination to bring a Trolli gummy candy fruit bowl with you to the party, filled with a mix of all the favorite Trolli varieties: Gummy Peach Rings Gummy Apple Rings Gummy Strawberry Creams, and of course, even tho they’re not fruit…. Gummy Worms, because what worm doesn’t like fruit?


To make your fruit bowl really eye-catching, purchase a pretty glass bowl for your Trolli gummy candy bowl – the more uniquely crafted the bowl is, the better! Be sure to bring a few extra bags of gummy candy along, as we have a feeling that the gummy fruit bowl will be gone quick.

Trolli Gummy Candy has an impressive history, and with gummy candy this amazing, you’ll earn kudos from the hostess and make for a fabulous party!

Summer is almost here and with it comes little league games!  If you’re a parent in charge of your team’s concession stand, choosing the right candy and snacks to sell can be daunting.  After all, there are so many different varieties of concession candy available it’s hard to not say “gimme all of them!”

Big League Chew – When you think of Big League Chew your mind probably goes right to baseball and this shredded gum packed into a pouch to resemble a big leaguer’s “chew.”  But did you know this chewing gum has another connection to baseball?  The first batch of Big League Chew rolled off the manufacturing line on February 6, 1979 – baseball legend Babe Ruth’s birthday!
