Zitner’s Chocolate Eggs: An Easter Tradition for Nearly a Century

When someone says “Easter candy” chances are the first thing that comes to mind is either a chocolate rabbit or a chocolate egg. While both are delicious, there’s nothing more decadent than a chocolate egg with a rich filling such as coconut cream or peanut butter.

This time of year, many of our customers look forward to one particular brand of chocolate Easter eggs – Zitner’s. A Philadelphia staple for over 100 years, Zitner’s makes over 6 million chocolate eggs every Easter.

If you’ve never tasted a Zitner’s egg, simply put – you don’t know what you’re missing. As soon as these delights arrive in our candy warehouse, our customer’s begin ordering them by the box full. After all, they’ve waited an entire year for these special treats.

By far, the most popular is Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs. The peanut butter filling Zitner’s uses in these eggs is probably the most rich, smooth, and delicious peanut butter you will ever taste. Couple that with their famous milk chocolate and you have perhaps the perfect piece of Easter candy.

For something a little more unique, we point you in the direction of the Zitner’s Butter Krak Egg. First introduced nearly a century ago, this egg features a toasted coconut and dark chocolate shell that you need to “Krak” thru to reach the sweet, creamy, buttery coconut center that will leave you weak in the knees!

Speaking of coconut, if you’re looking for a more traditional one we have the Zitner’s Coconut Cream Egg that features a delicious coconut center covered with their luscious dark chocolate. We’re pretty sure you won’t be able to have just one of these.

Since these are one of our more popular Easter treats, they sell quickly. If you’ve been waiting for them to arrive, we encourage you to order early to avoid being disappointed. We’re one of the few online candy stores that carry Zitner’s Easter Eggs, so if you’ve been searching for them – you’ve come to the right place.

Don’t forget to check out our entire selection of Easter candy to fill up baskets, use for egg hunts, or just enjoy as a once-a-year special treat.

Fill Your Easter Eggs With Sweet, Delicious Egg Hunt Candy!

Mark your calendars! Easter this year will be celebrated on Sunday, April 4, 2021. One of the most popular traditions that families look forward to each Easter is a good, old-fashioned egg hunt.

If you think back to your own childhood, you know how excited you would be waking up Easter Sunday morning to go scurrying through the house and yard snatching up all the brightly colored Easter eggs that Peter Rabbit hid while you were sleeping.

But finding them was only half the fun! Sitting down and opening them up was an even greater event. Would there be candy inside? Maybe a quarter? Or perhaps a dollar bill! Whether it be candy, trinkets, or money there’s no doubt that the Easter egg hunt is the highlight of the day.

Marshmallow PEEPS are Back! Check Out What’s New for Easter 2021

While you were celebrating the new year by watching fireworks, popping champagne, and writing down a list of resolutions, we were a little preoccupied with a special delivery that was made to our huge candy warehouse!

Early in the morning on January 2, 2021 a few tractor trailers pulled up to our loading docks. Inside were pallets and pallets of bright yellow boxes.

“They’re here!”

Our warehouse team was excited to see the arrival of none other than Easter PEEPS! As you may recall, due to COVID-19, PEEPS were not manufactured for Halloween and Christmas in 2020. Raving fans of these marshmallow treats were more than disappointed to find out that these two major holidays would be celebrated PEEP-less.

Naturally, seeing a sea of PEEPS lining the aisles of our warehouse was a happy moment – a sense of normalcy was beginning to return. We all know that candy is the ultimate comfort food, and having PEEPS back in stock after a year brought smiles to everyone’s faces here at Blair Candy.

Now, you’re probably wondering if all the different types of Easter PEEPS are available this year? We’re happy to say…. Yes! There’s also some new ones to get excited about as well.

The classic PEEPS chicks and bunnies in a rainbow of colors are back! So are fun flavors such as the new Hot Tamales and the return of Party Cake, Sour Watermelon, Root Beer, Chocolate Pudding and more!

Yellow is the most popular selling color of Marshmallow PEEPS

 

We’re also welcoming some new flavors of PEEPS Delights – marshmallow PEEPS dipped in a variety of flavors including Milk Chocolate, Creme Fudge, Dark Chocolate and more.

PEEPS fans will also want to check out two new PEEPS Pops – Fruit Loops or classic flavored rainbow PEEPS on a stick.

We expect this year’s supply of PEEPS to go quick, so we’re encouraging you to order early! Check out the entire lineup of Easter PEEPS and be don’t leave without browsing all our delicious Easter candy.

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

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!

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.

BIG News for Reese’s and KIT KAT Fans!

We’ve got some BIG news for chocolate lovers! The confectioners at Hershey’s have just released some new varieties of our favorite candy bars that will make your mouth water. Let’s take a look:

Reese’s Big Cup with Pretzels
There is no more successful marriage than that between chocolate and peanut butter. Reese’s have been combining these two since their famous peanut butter cups were introduced nearly a century ago in 1928. Since then, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have become one of the world’s most popular chocolate bars.

The latest creation to come out is a massive Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup that features chunks of pretzels in the center. Now not only can you get your chocolate-peanut butter fix, but one that also includes pretzels!

How does it taste? Well, let’s just say the saltiness of the pretzel bits makes an awesome accompaniment to one of our all-time favorites. And don’t forget… this peanut butter cup is BIG!


KIT KAT DUOS Mocha + Chocolate
Building off the success of KIT KAT’s first DUO flavor, Mint + Chocolate, Hershey’s is introducing yet another flavor – Mocha + Chocolate. These King Size (yes, another BIG chocolate bar) KIT KAT DUOS feature the original crisp wafer that the candy bar is known for, but adds in a delectable mix of mocha creme, coffee bits, and the rich milk chocolate you crave.

If you love the taste of a mocha cappuccino, you’re going to love this candy bar!

Haven’t tasted the Mint + Chocolate KIT KAT DUO yet? Well, that King Size bar combines a classic mint flavored creme with luscious dark chocolate for an extra special treat. If you’re a dark chocolate lover, you need to give it a try!

Move Over Peppermint, Check Out These Unique Christmas Candy Canes

If we were to ask you to think of a type of Christmas candy, chances are the first that will come to mind is a candy cane. In fact, next to Santa Claus a candy cane is one of the most popular images associated with the holiday.

The peppermint sticks that get handed out at parties, hung on Christmas trees, or crushed to be used in delicious desserts, trace their history to Germany in 1670. According to history.com, “the choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral in Germany handed out sugar sticks among his young singers to keep them quiet during the Living Creche ceremony.” Eventually a hook was added to the end of the stick, and voila – the candy cane has been around every since!

Over the years, peppermint candy canes have made way for other sweet, sour, unique, and head-scratching varieties. Today we’re going to take a look at some of the more interesting types of candy canes we have in our candy warehouse:

Brach’s Peppermint Candy Canes
No article about candy canes would be complete without listing the most popular type – peppermint. In fact, out of all the Christmas candy we sell, peppermint candy canes consistently are one of our biggest sellers.


Archie McPheee Ketchup Candy Canes
These may look like a traditional candy cane, but hang on – they’re actually ketchup flavored. Yes, you read that right. Ketchup. Whether you’re a fan of the tomato-based condiment or you’re looking to play a practical joke on someone, this one is for you.


Bacon Candy Canes
Ok, now this is one candy cane that we can really get into. After all, who can resist the smoky, flavorful taste of bacon? Perfect for any bacon lover on your gift list, these candy canes are sure to please.


Starburst Candy Canes
Fans of Starburst candy will love their favorite flavors – green apple, lemon, and strawberry – turned into a festive candy cane. Now if there could only be an all pink variety!


YumEarth Organic Vegan Candy Canes
If you’re looking for a vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO holiday treat, we’re here for you! YumEarth captures the spirit of the season in these organic mini candy canes for those looking for an all-natural seasonal treat.

We told you there were some unique flavors available, so be sure to check them all out as well as our complete selection of Christmas candy.

Gingerbread House Kits: A Perfect Holiday Activity for the Whole Family

There are so many different traditions that come with the Christmas and Hanukkah season. The other day we wrote about one of them, Advent Calendars, and how quickly they sell out each year.

Another holiday favorite that everyone in the family can take part in is the annual construction of a gingerbread house. This tradition dates back to Germany in the early 1800s when very elaborate gingerbread house displays were created, many of which adorned with gold leaf.

Still today, families, businesses, and tourist destinations around the globe continue to keep this tradition alive. Many holiday displays in commercial establishments take weeks to put together and attract hundreds of visitors.

Days are spent backing gingerbread sheets for the walls of the homes and gingerbread “shingles” for the roof. Countless hours are then spent “gluing” the pieces together using icing before artisans begin decorating the exterior.

It’s a lot of work to put together a large gingerbread house display and we’re here to give you a big high-five if you’re ready to whip up a big batch of gingerbread and all the other components from scratch.

But if you’re looking for a simpler alternative that doesn’t involve baking, you’ve come to the right place! Each year we work with our candy suppliers to bring you new and unique gingerbread house kits that contain pre-baked gingerbread and all the “tools” you need to begin construction – and this year is no different!

Like our Advent Calendars, gingerbread house kits are one of those items that sell out quickly, so we encourage you to order early to avoid disappointment as we get closer to the holiday.

Whether crafting a gingerbread house is something you do every year, or you’re ready to start a new tradition, we can’t think of a better holiday activity that brings the entire family together. In fact, our gingerbread house kits are perfect for giving to each family member so they can create their own and you can use them in one large display!

Here are just a few of the gingerbread house kits we have available:

Santa’s Workshop Gingerbread Kit
There’s a magical place way up at the North Pole where Santa’s elves work all year round creating all the toys and gadgets that are loaded in his sleigh for that Christmas Eve trip around the world. This gingerbread house kit features characters from the holiday classic, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, working at Santa’s workshop!


M&M’s Gingerbread Stadium Kit
If you have sports fans in your family, forget a gingerbread house… pick up one of these gingerbread stadiums instead! A fun and unique take from M&M’s that will certainly make for a unique addition to your holiday display.


Polar Express Chocolate Cookie Kit
While not gingerbread, our Polar Express Chocolate Cookie Kit is put together just like a gingerbread house, but with delicious cookies. Your kids will love building one of the most famous locomotives that will look great as part of your holiday decorations.


 

We have more gingerbread house kits arriving weekly so be sure to check our new items page frequently. In addition, our huge candy warehouse is starting to fill up with all sorts of delicious Christmas candy and treats including fresh popcorn balls, candy canes, Holiday baking supplies and more!

Facts: Parents Admit to Sneaking Some of their Kid’s Halloween Candy

If you’ve been digging into the stash of Halloween candy you have set aside for trick-or-treaters, or have “snuck” a piece or two from your kid’s overflowing bucket of sweet treats – you’re not alone!

We weren’t too surprised to learn that according to a survey commissioned by the National Confectioners Association, 79% of parents surveyed admit to taking candy from their children.

It’s ok, if you’re one of them… after all who can resist a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or delicious Halloween Popcorn Balls?

If you think it’s hard to resist dipping into your kid’s candy haul, imagine how hard it is for us to walk around a huge candy warehouse every day where the sweet smell of chocolate is everywhere and we’re surrounded with tons of nostalgic candy, seasonal treats, and yummy snacks.

So if you’re one of the 79% who admitted snatching some of that delicious Halloween candy, it’s ok. We’re just trying to figure out how the 21% who didn’t were able to resist the temptation!

While Halloween will be a little different this year, some communities are still allowing trick-or-treating with safe protocols in effect. Local stores, community centers, and organizations are offering socially distant ways for kids to get their fill of candy, while some folks are getting creative with the ways they plan on treating the little ghosts and goblins who may pay a visit.

Check out the video below for a creative way for you to whip up a super spooky candy chute that will allow you to welcome trick-or-treaters and be the envy of your neighbors:

So on November 1st, you have our thumbs up to grab that bag of candy, grab a few of your favorites, and enjoy! After all, the sweetest holiday of the year only comes around once a year.
