Checking out the 2021 Sweets & Treats Expo and Previewing New Christmas Candy

Hello from Indianapolis! Where we’re spending a few days at the 2021 Sweets & Snacks Expo where hundreds of the world’s leading candy makers are showing off all their new confectionery delights to get our mouths watering.

Walking from booth to booth it’s hard not to sample some of the new candy and snacks that these manufacturers will be rolling out soon. It’s safe to say that we’re probably going to gain a pound or two from “booth grazing” while we’re here!

In addition to showing off some new candy and snacks, many vendors are showcasing some of their seasonal creations that will be arriving just in time for Halloween and Christmas – two really big candy holidays.

Hershey’s introduced new M&M’s White Chocolate Pretzel Snowballs that sound as good as they taste. After all, chocolate and pretzels are the perfect combination and when you put them together in an M&M you can’t go wrong.

They also teased Dove Milk Chocolate Toffee Almond Crunch Promises. Individually holiday-themed wrapped pieces of smooth, delicious Dove chocolate with special messages inside the wrapper.

Both of these are expected to arrive in September / October and we can’t wait to have them join our lineup of delicious Christmas candy.

And speaking of Christmas candy…. We’re just a few weeks away from having loads and loads of seasonal sweets start arriving in our huge candy warehouse. Halloween candy should be arriving very soon and we’re sure to share some of the new spooky sweets as soon as they’re in stock. Of course, Christmas candy won’t be far behind!

To make sure you never miss out on new arrivals or special deals, visit our website and sign up for our candy newsletter. It’s the only place where you’ll receive special discounts and a “heads up” on all our new candy as it comes in.

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.

Most Popular Halloween Candy

There are two holidays that are closely associated with candy – Easter and Halloween. Both see candy manufacturers come out with special edition sweets to satisfy the sweet tooth we all seem to develop every spring and fall!

While unique confectionary delights are concocted by candy experts to tempt us or put a new twist on a classic treat, it seems we all love to gobble up the classics.

Halloween is a busy time here at Blair Candy and year after year we keep track of what the hottest selling candy is and believe it or not, it doesn’t differ much with the changing of the calendar!

So what exactly is the most popular Halloween candy? Well, here are the top 5 biggest sellers:

5. Candy Corn – Yes! Believe it or not, love it or hate it, Candy Corn made the top 5 and for good reason – you just can’t celebrate Halloween without it.

4. Skittles – Unlike Candy Corn, you can “taste the rainbow” year round, but Skittles are more popular during trick-or-treat season.

3. Snickers – A Snickers bar satisfies that afternoon craving you get between lunch and dinner, but guess what? The bite size version satisfies Halloween cravings so much so it’s the 3rd most popular candy bar this time of year.

2. M&Ms – Original or peanut it doesn’t matter, M&M’s are the second most popular Halloween candy. Maybe it’s because it’s such a classic, or because it’s that one chocolate candy that “melts in your mouth, not in your hands!”

1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – Yes! The delicious combination of chocolate and peanut butter keeps Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the number one spot year after year.

Were you surprised to see what made the list of the most popular Halloween candy? While Candy Corn may have been one that you never would have guessed, the others should have been pretty easy.

Why?

Because they’re simply delicious!

Delicious Chocolate & Yogurt Covered Pretzels for Fall

“These pretzels are making me thirsty!” You may remember that line from an episode of the wildly popular television show, Seinfeld. One of the show’s zany characters, Kramer, got a role in a movie and that was his one and only line.

We can’t help but remember that line every time we walk by all the different types of pretzel snacks we have in our huge candy warehouse. Just the other day, we received some new pretzel treats and one of our team members shouted, “these pretzels look delicious!”

The excitement in his voice caused a few of us to go running to see what came in. Well, needless to say, we opened up a box because… well… product testing you know!

Fresh for fall, two different types of delicious pretzels arrived. The first is a 15 pound box of yogurt covered pretzels that have a dash of sweet drizzled on them in festive fall colors.

 

The second box we opened is another 15 pounder, this time packed with chocolate covered pretzels with an orange drizzle.

If you’re planning a Halloween party, fall get together, movie night, or any special occasion that requires bulk candy and snacks, these are sure to be a hit.

Besides snacks like these chocolate and yogurt covered pretzels, we have plenty of candy available in bulk that’s perfect for candy buffets, parades, parties, and even for putting together your own holiday gift baskets. The possibilities are endless.

If these pretzels made you hungry, it’s time to pick up a box and start snacking!

Popcorn Balls – A Sought After Halloween Treat

Popcorn! You can’t sit through a movie without some or go to an amusement park without ordering a bucket. If you checked your cupboards, you probably have some just waiting to be popped when the urge for a snack hits.

Popcorn has been a popular snack for over a century, but things changed in 1982 when Pillsbury introduced a new way to whip up a batch of this buttery, salty snack thanks to a new kitchen appliance that became popular in the 70’s – the microwave.

While debate rages over whether microwave popcorn is better than stove popped corn, there’s no arguing over the fact that popcorn balls are the ultimate popcorn treat! In fact, these sugary balls of deliciousness are so popular that fans wait for them to be produced and gobble them up quickly.

The largest manufacturer of popcorn balls is Kathy Kaye Foods based in South Dakota. They produce thousands of these sought after treats seasonally with the biggest being fall / Halloween time.

Every year, our loyal customers email us asking when our shelves will be stocked with fresh Kathy Kay Halloween Popcorn Balls so they can order a supply before they’re sold out. This year is no exception!

While we recently told you that there will be no Halloween PEEPS produced this year due to COVID-19, we’re happy to say the popcorn balls are in stock, fresh, and ready for you to enjoy or hand out to all your trick-or-treaters.

Speaking of trick-or-treat, one review of these popcorn balls on our website from a customer says, “Every year the kids ask the “Popcorn Ball Lady” if she has popcorn balls. I found these last year, so ordered more for this year and can’t wait to see their little faces light up!”

If you want to be the house the kids seek out this Halloween, popcorn balls should be on the top of your list along with some of our most popular Halloween candy.

The next time popcorn balls will be available will be for Christmas, so stay tuned!

Marshmallow PEEPS Won’t Be Available for Halloween 2020

2020 will go down in the history books as the year we became experts in social distancing, learned that take-out and pizza delivery could be “contact-less,” had more visits to our front doors from the UPS driver than our closest friends, and worst yet…. was the year without Halloween PEEPS.

Yes, you heard that right friends. Halloween 2020 will be PEEP-less. Just Born, the company that makes the world’s favorite marshmallow treat was unable to produce this years batch of Halloween themed PEEPS candy that usually includes marshmallow pumpkins, ghosts, and cats.

We knew Halloween would look a little different this year, but we never thought our favorite fluffy treat would ghost us.

Oh 2021, please come quick!

So while PEEPS won’t be available this year, some of your traditional Halloween Candy favorites are still here ready for you to hand out to all the little ghosts and goblins who will be out for trick-or-treat.

If you’re looking for some unique treats to hand out, may be recommend:

While your trick-or-treaters may expect to “taste the rainbow” when they open up this snack size pack of Skittles, a secret surprise awaits! Inside is a “Zombie” Skittle that tastes like… well… a rotten zombie. Will they love it or hate it?

We know there’s no substitute for PEEPS, and we’re definitely disappointed they won’t be available for Halloween. Unfortunately, they won’t be available for Christmas either due to COVID-19. However, the candy makers at Just Born are hard at work to make sure that Easter PEEPS will be available starting in early 2021.

Caramel Candy a Halloween and Fall Favorite

Move over pumpkin spice, when it comes to fall flavors in the candy world we can’t resist caramel. There’s just something about the rich, sweet, toasty flavor of caramel by itself, tucked inside milk chocolate, or used to coat an apple.

Reese’s Halloween Peanut Butter Cups

Chocolate and Peanut Butter. We owe a debt of gratitude to H. B. Reese who combined these two ingredients and came up with the candy we know today as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Reese’s dates back to 1923 and is certainly one of the most well known and most popular chocolate candy bars of all time.

While available year-round, Reese’s embraces holidays to come up with special editions and Halloween is no exception. In fact, this Halloween there are some frighteningly delicious varieties of everyone’s favorite chocolate peanut butter treat.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins
The symbol of Halloween, the jack-o-lantern, is one of the shapes Reese’s produces their peanut butter cups in for trick-or-treat season. This year, Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins are available in a snack, regular, and king size in traditional milk chocolate, and regular and king size in delicious white chocolate for an extra decadent treat.
