Introducing Your New Candy Crush – Crush Soda Flavor Inspired Candy!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and guess what? We have your new, favorite candy crush right here at Blair Candy!

No, it’s not who you’re thinking. It’s two of your favorite chewy treats featuring the fruity favorites of Crush Soda!

Now, we’re not afraid to admit that we’re a little partial to Orange Crush, but we’re also a fan of strawberry, grape, and pineapple.  If you are too, you’re going to fall in love with these two new candies.

First up, Swedish Fish Minis. The fish that everyone loves to eat is now available in a bag of assorted Crush Soda flavors. If you’re partial to the classic Red Swedish Fish, have no fear, they’re still available. Plus, we are one of the few places online that you can get the rare grape-flavored Nordic Fish that made a swim back to the United States after spending some time upstream.

Now get ready for this! Say hello to your new favorite sweet and sour candy – Sour Patch Kids Crush. The same fruity flavors bring new a new taste sensation to this gummy treat.

Both of these Crush Soda flavors inspired candies were teased at the Spring 2019 Sweets and Snacks Expo and we just couldn’t want to get some in stock. Now they’re here, so be sure to order some and make them your first new crush of 2020.

Chocolate Coins – a St. Patrick’s Day Tradition

“At the end of every rainbow lies a pot of gold.” That phrase instantly brings visions of a happy-go-lucky leprechaun guarding an overflowing cauldron of bright gold coins, or, a favorite breakfast cereal!

Whichever image it conjures up for you, there’s no mistaking the mascot of St. Patrick’s Day – a holiday celebrated each year on the 17th of March. While St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated by the Irish dating back to 1000AD, it was first celebrated here in the United States in 1737 in the country’s most Irish city – Boston.

Holidays all have their candy cousin, such as candy canes for Christmas, heart shaped lollipops for Valentine’s Day, and chocolate rabbits for Easter. St. Patrick’s Day is no exception, and we owe the choice of sweets to our friend the leprechaun.

The St. Patrick’s Day candy that’s most associated with the holiday is none other than chocolate coins wrapped in shiny gold foil to represent the coins in the leprechaun’s overflowing pot.

These chocolate coins are a favorite treat that can be used in decorations or handed out as gifts to youngsters of all ages. Our selection of chocolate coins come in either quarters or half-dollars and are available in 2 and 24 pound packages.

If you’re looking for something “green” to hand out with all that “gold,” we have some other St. Patrick’s Day candy such as classic spearmint leaves jellies, green cotton candy, green lollipops and more including green candy in bulk for creating a candy buffet for school or work.

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.

Everyone knows the universal symbol for love is a heart and there’s no shortage of heart-shaped candy to go around. So today, we’re highlighting some of our favorites!

Brach’s Cherry Jelly Hearts
We have to admit these are one of our favorites. Brach’s has been making candy since 1904 and their ju ju style jelly candies have been a favorite for generations of love birds, so scoop up a bag or two this year before they’re gone.


Sour Punch Valentine’s Day Gummy Hearts
It’s alright if you want to be a sour puss this Valentine’s day… but ONLY when you’re snacking on one of these Sour Punch Gummy Hearts! The sweet taste of watermelon, strawberry, and fruit punch are accompanied by a “punch” of sour that gives these candies a unique twist.

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.

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!

Top 5 Candy Purchased on Cyber Monday

Like you, all of us at Blair Candy are busy buying gifts and getting ready for the holidays. Many of our team members here at our candy warehouse scooped up some great deals on Cyber Monday. But over lunch, someone asked, “what did we sell the most of?”

So we dug in and came up with a list of the Top 5 Biggest Selling Candy on Cyber Monday. (We filtered out Christmas Candy to come up with our list of traditional faves.)

#5 – Jumbo Rainbow Swirly Lollipops
Let’s admit it, we’re a sucker for these too! In fact, these are the first we think of whenever someone mentions the word lollipop. Colorful, big, and classic it’s no wonder these were one of our best selling items. We’re pretty sure there’s going to be plenty of smiles on kids’ faces when they find one of these in their stocking.

#3 – Candy Cigarettes… or Candy Sticks
Whenever someone mentions nostalgic candy, this one always comes to mind. Think back to when you were a kid with a pocketful of change heading to the corner store – what did you buy? Penny candy and some Candy Cigarettes, of course! While these sugary treats can no longer be called Candy Cigarettes, fear not! Today’s Candy Sticks have the same flavor you remember as a youngster.

Fun, Easy to Make Chocolate Christmas Tree Treats

The holidays are the perfect time of year to show off your creative skills – especially if you like spending time in the kitchen baking and making treats to share with friends, family, and co-workers.

Cookies, cupcakes, pies, and sweets make great gifts and always are always welcome in the office breakroom.  If you have children, making these treats together as a family activity can be the start of an annual holiday tradition.

One easy to make treat that’s fun for the whole family to make is Christmas Tree Pretzels. Like snowflakes, each one is unique and how you decorate each tree is up to you!

  • – 1 bag of mini pretzel sticks that you can pick up at any grocery store
  • – 1 bag of candy melts that we sell in red, green, brown and white
  • – 3-5 tbsp coconut oil
  • – 1 container of Christmas sprinkles or any sprinkle of your choice including these rainbow sprinkles we sell in bulk if you want to make a lot of these to give away as gifts
  • – 1 cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
