Toostie Frooties: The Fruitilicious Candy For Every Occasion!

Hands up if you’re a fan of Tootsie Rolls!  This favorite penny candy has been around since 1907 and is great for a quick snack.  But did you know about the Tootsie Roll’s not-do-distant cousin the Tootsie Frootie?

Tootsie Frooties is the fruit-flavored version of the famous chew available in ten flavors such as green apple, mango, grape, and sour cherry.  They have the same chewy consistency as the original Tootsie Roll but their flavor is what sets them apart and makes them a very versatile candy that can be used for different occasions!

Let’s share a few where Tootsie Frooties can sweeten up the event:

Baby Showers
Baby shower favors can be quite expensive, so gift your baby shower guests instead with small gift bags filled with blue and pink Tootsie Frooties in our Blue Raspberry Flavors and Watermelon Flavors. Nearly everyone loves the sweet taste of Tootsie Frooties, and it’s such a cute baby shower favor!

 

Bridal Showers
The same goes for bridal shower favors – they’re certainly not easy on the wallet. Buy wedding favor boxes to match your wedding colors, and choose Tootsie Frooties that also match your wedding colors! With colors ranging from green to purple, you’re sure to find the color you’re searching for. Plus, the taste isn’t too bad either!

Birthday Parties
Ice cream buffets can get very messy, so instead have a candy buffet! Choose the birthday girl or boy’s candy favorites, and we just know Toostie Frooties will be one of their candy choices. Give each guest one of our White Paper Bags, and let them fill it up to their heart’s delight!

Family Reunions and Picnics Attending a family reunion or cookout? Instead of bringing the usual pasta salad or pie, bring along Tootsie Frooties! The host will be so delighted you chose an item different from the norm, and your family will surely be huddled around the Tootsie Frooties bowl.

Concession Stand Candy for Every Baseball Fan

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!”

Whether old or new, there are some favorites that stand the test of time and are favorites every year.  So let’s dust off the bases and check out some baseball candy your concession stand or snack bar can’t do without.

Cracker Jack – This caramel-covered popcorn and peanut treat is as American as the sport itself.  You can probably remember sitting in the stands munching on this sweet treat while wondering what prize you’re going to pull out.  When it comes to baseball candy or snacks, Cracker Jack is a must-have.

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!

Chocolate Baseballs Penny Candy – Here’s a treat that will score a home run with all your fans – chocolate baseballs!  These delicious milk chocolate individually wrapped treats are priced perfectly for you to buy and sell in bulk at your concession stand.  And since they’re an inexpensive candy, your fans will buy them by the handful.

David Sunflower Seeds – Just like Cracker Jack, sunflower seeds are closely associated with the sport of baseball.  Chewing on this salty snack in the stands or on the field has been a tradition for as long as the players have been knocking balls out of the park.  Stock your concession stand with a sampling of the three different flavors to satisfy hungry fans.

There you have it!  Our picks for favorite baseball candy and snacks that every concession stand should have on stand this year.  Need help in picking what to stock your snack bar with?  Just contact us and we’ll be more than happy to lend a hand.  After all, we’ve been helping little leagues and sports teams make money off concessions for over 80 years.

Ice Cream is a Sure Fire Way to Increase Concession Stand Sales this Summer

Imagine for just a moment… it’s a hot summer day, you’re at the ballpark watching your kid’s little league game and you get hungry for a snack. You head over to the concession stand and there’s a big sign that says “Ice Cream.” What do you do?

Get a scoop or two, of course!

After all, who can resist ice cream in the summer? Or any time of the year for that matter!

Concession stand operators know the secret to profits is adding food and snacks that fans are going to gobble up. Ice cream is not only a fan favorite but also a high-profit item.

If you’re considering adding ice cream to your concession stand or snack bar, you can either go with soft-serve or hard. Soft serve requires an initial investment in an ice cream machine, but it quickly pays for itself with sales. Hard ice cream requires a freezer (obviously) and has less maintenance than if you were operating a soft-serve machine.

Once you’ve weighed the pros and cons of soft vs hard ice cream, it’s time to start thinking about flavors. Of course, no ice cream stand is complete without the two most popular flavors – vanilla and chocolate. For soft-serve operators, you can go with those two and call it a day!

If you’re serving up hand-scooped ice cream, cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip, and chocolate chip cookie dough wrap up the top five most popular ice cream flavors, so consider adding those to your lineup.

Now that you’ve got your ice cream picked out, it’s time to think about how to increase your profit margin even more. The simplest way to do it is to sell ice cream treats such as sundaes and banana splits or offer toppings for an additional charge.

If you’re going to be offering items besides simple cones, be sure to stock up on ice cream boats and containers such as styrofoam squat cups and lids, or larger parfait cups.

Choosing the right toppings to offer is as important as choosing the right flavors of ice cream. The most popular ice cream toppings include peanut butter cups, cookie dough (we have birthday cake, chocolate chip, and chocolate covered cookie dough!), marshmallows like our delicious Marshmallow Charms, and of course sprinkles!

Giving your customers the opportunity to customize their ice cream treat with toppings not only increases customer satisfaction but by charging a little extra helps your concession stand’s profit margin rise.

Need help in deciding what to offer your fans this summer? We’ve been taking care of concession stand operators for decades, so contact us with any questions you may have. We’re here to help you have a very profitable season!

DAVID Sunflower Seeds Summer’s Salty Snack We All Love

One of our favorite summertime snacks, and one we love to take to the ballpark, is sunflower seeds. These salty treats have long been associated with summer sports and one brand in particular – DAVID Seeds – is known as the “official brand of baseball and softball.”

Believe it or not, DAVID Sunflower Seeds were first introduced way back in 1926 inside a California grocery store. The roasted then seasoned seeds became such a hit that nearly a hundred years later they’re still as popular as ever.

DAVID Sunflower Seeds are American-grown and still made the old-fashioned way. While the original flavor is still the most popular, the line has evolved to include some tasty flavors that you may want to experience yourself. So let’s dive into the different flavors of summer’s favorite seed:

DAVID Original Flavor Sunflower Seeds
This is the one that started it all nearly a century ago. Roasted in the shell, these seeds have the salty taste you’re familiar with and are a staple item at concession stands and snack bars at ballparks. Even if you’re not at the ball game, grab a bag and take them along to work with you as a great afternoon snack.


DAVID BBQ Flavor Sunflower Seeds
Summer and bar-b-que go hand in hand so there’s no better pairing than DAVID sunflower seeds and the flavor of tangy BBQ seasoning. Whether you’re selling these at your snack bar or picking up a box or two for snacks during a cookout, you can’t go wrong!


DAVID Ranch Flavor Sunflower Seeds
We knew ranch dressing wasn’t meant just for salads when people started dipping slices of pizza and french fries in this creamy condiment. If you’re a ranch now is the time for you to sample something a bit different – ranch-flavored sunflower seeds! We’ll admit we were a bit skeptical at first, but we’re sold on this unique flavor on one of our favorite summer snacks.


Now that we have your mouth watering and your taste buds craving some of the delicious flavors of sunflower seeds, we bet you’re having a hard time deciding which one to buy. Have no fear, we can solve the dilemma! Instead of buying a whole box of one flavor, we also can mix and match the three different flavors so you can sample them all. Just click here to purchase individual bags of each.

 

If you’re looking to add DAVID Sunflower Seeds to your little league or sports team’s concession stand, be sure to check out our wholesale program for resellers, or contact us for more information.

Did you know that ice cream is one of the most profitable items you can sell at a concession stand? It’s true! Along with popcorn and cotton candy, ice cream has a high-profit margin and is one of those items that everyone wants to buy on a hot summer day.

Whether you’re selling soft-serve or hand-dipped ice cream, you can increase your profits per scoop by adding an up-charge for toppings. After all, who wouldn’t want to top off their dish or cone with sprinkles, cherries, or pieces of their favorite candy bars?

You don’t have to break off a piece of a Kit Kat bar to top a cone, the work is already done for you in this 10lb bag of chopped Kit Kat bars. That’s enough to top about 300 ice cream cones or sundaes.


Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Everyone loves Reese’s and it’s going to be hard to “top” this perfect combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and ice cream. These chopped-up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups come in a 5lb bag and are perfect for topping sundaes, cones, or used in milkshakes.

A Trio of New Concession Stand Snacks to Make Your Sales Soar

With little league season starting up soon, we’re here to help you hit a home run at your concession stand! So far, we’ve written about how ice cream has a great profit margin and the creative ways you can “top off” the sale with our selection of ice cream toppings. We’ve also shared must-have fan-favorite candy, snacks, and of course snack bar supplies.

Today we’re touching three new, unique items that are sure to make your cash register ring! Let’s start off with an amusement park and county fair favorite…

Cotton Candy
No need to invest in equipment, supplies, and training with our ready-to-sell cotton candy! Plus, the unique names, flavors, and bright colors attract attention and become an almost instant sale. We stock nearly two dozen flavors of ready-to-eat cotton candy including churro, root beer, pickle, pizza, and even bacon!


Jositos Wild Fire Chili & Lime Corn Chips
There’s a new player in the game-day snack lineup! New for the season is Jositos corn chips that combine a bit of heat with a hint of lime. Pair them with a cold drink and your fans will be chillin’ in the stands while the game (and their mouth) heats up!

Your fans are going to absolutely love these S’moresles candy treats. The delicious taste of s’mores is now bite-sized! Each of these graham cracker, marshmallow, and chocolate-coated pieces are packed in a concession stand size box – that’s perfect for sharing.

Keep in mind that when choosing candy to sell at your concession stand, we recommend keeping the weather and temperature in mind. Chocolate and candy that can melt do not hold up well in transit and with most concession stands not being air-conditioned, you don’t want to be throwing away melted candy.

Stock Your Concession Stand with these Fan Favorites

With the little league and summer sports season right around the corner, we’ve been sharing our favorite concession stand snacks as well as must-have concession stand supplies to help you get your stand ready for your fans. Today we’re going to take a look at some of the most popular concession stand candy that your customers will love.

When choosing snack bar candy, it’s important to keep the weather in mind. You may think that chocolate bars would be a good idea, but couple the summer heat with an unairconditioned candy counter, and you have a recipe for disaster. So unless you have the ability to keep chocolate from melting, we advise sticking some alternatives such as these:

Laffy Taffy
Taffy has come a long way since it was first introduced back in 1880 and today the most popular brand of this chewy treat is none other than Laffy Taffy. For concession stands or parades, we recommend Laffy Taffy Ropes. These individually wrapped taffy ropes come in an assortment of flavors and are perfect for selling by the piece.


Nerds
Everyone loves Nerds so be sure to stock some at your concession stand! Available in several different flavors, the small boxes of these sweet (or sour) treats don’t take up a lot of space and their price point makes them a perfect choice. Start out with a few flavors such as grape/strawberry or What-a-Melon/cherry to tickle your fan’s taste buds.


Twizzlers Licorice
Another perfect concession stand candy is individually wrapped Twizzlers – just like you would find at old-fashioned candy counters! Each box contains 180 Twizzlers and we can guarantee you that your customers will buy more than one because nobody can resist the great strawberry flavor licorice fans crave.


Charms Super Blow Pops
Lollipops have long been a candy counter staple and here’s one that’s always a favorite because it’s actually two treats in one. Charms Blow Pops contain a bubble gum center that’s surrounded by a delicious lolly. This display-ready box contains 48 pops in assorted flavors.


Bazooka Bubble Gum
Want to give your fans a little nostalgia? Here’s one that will really take them back in time – Bazooka bubble gum in retro throwback packaging. Each box contains 12, 6-packs of this classic gum that people will instantly recognize and enjoy.


These are just a few of our recommendations. Be sure to check out all the concession stand candy we recommend and don’t forget to check out our selection of snacks and snack bar supplies to help you increase profits at your concession stand this season.

Must Have Disposable Concession Stand Supplies

When it comes to stocking your concession stand this spring and summer, it’s not all about what candy and snacks you need to have on hand for your hungry fans. If you’re selling grab-and-go food items, you also need to stock up on disposables.

Due to COVID-19, it’s more important than ever that your snack bar customers are treated to a clean, hygienic environment when picking up their food. So we’re sharing some items that are absolutely essential:

Face Coverings
Face masks are still required in many venues and locales and you should follow guidance for your location for compliance. However, it’s recommended that all workers behind your concession stand counter wear some type of approved facial covering. Disposable face masks are your best bet as they can quickly be replaced when soiled or wet during a hot day working in the sun. We are stocking both youth and adult-size face masks available in 25 and 50 packs.


Hand Sanitizer
We all know the importance of washing our hands and using sanitizer when a sink isn’t available. Concession stand operators should keep hand sanitizer easily available for use by both employees and customers. We’re stocking bottles of hand sanitizer that can be placed at your cash register or order counter that customers can use when ordering and picking up their food. If you have tables or a counter for eating, we recommend placing a few bottles around for your customers to use.


Now let’s talk about some disposable serving items. There’s some nice profit to be made off of hot “ballpark” food and serving it up quickly and in an easy-to-consume way will make your hungry fans satisfied.

Hot Dog Trays
Baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie – the summer trio! Hot dogs are a quick and easy way to feed all your fans. Serve ‘em up in either a foam hot dot container that is designed to be closed up to keep the hot dog warm while it travels from your concession stand to the bleachers or for a more cost-effective solution, a simple paper hot dog tray fits the bill and allows your fans to easily top their dog with their favorites without fumbling.

Hot Dog Trays


Nacho Trays
Who can resist nachos and cheese? Nobody! And with a huge profit margin, nachos are a no-brainer for your concession stand. Make it easy for your fans to carry their nachos back to their seat with this disposable plastic tray that holds the perfect portions of chips and cheese.

Nacho Trays

French Fry Trays
Whether you’re frying or baking them, they go perfect with a hot dog! We’re talking French fries and your fans will be lining up for them. Give them a big helping of the starchy fan favorite and make it easy for them to add ketchup, nacho cheese, or even vinegar to their snack by serving your fries in these disposable paper trays.

French Fry Boats
