PEEPS Marshmallow Candy for Valentine’s Day and Easter

Easter and PEEPS candy go hand-in-hand. The fluffy marshmallow treats are a staple of Easter baskets and egg hunts every year, but did you know PEEPS are also available for Valentine’s Day?

Yes!

If that special someone is a fan of PEEPS, now is the time to play Cupid and give PEEPS Marshmallow Hearts this February 14th.

For the hopeless romantic, one flavor says “love” right off the bat – Strawberry Creme PEEPS. These colorful hearts taste just like a decadent dessert but without the fuss.

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.

Heart Shaped Valentine’s Day Candy Top Choices

The sweetest time of the year is almost here. That means love is in the air and plenty of Valentine’s Day candy is in our warehouse ready for your sweetheart.

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.


YumEarth Organic Valentine’s Hearts
New this year, we have organic heart-shaped gummies from YumEarth. These delicious gummy hearts are vegan, gluten, dye, and nut-free, and are USDA certified organic. These fruit-flavored hearts are delicious and a smart choice!

Nothing says love more than the marriage between peanut butter and chocolate and our friends at Reese’s have several varieties to choose from this Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re looking for miniature individually wrapped peanut butter hearts or a larger heart-shaped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup we’ve got them!


Charms Valentine Pops
Of course, we couldn’t wrap up a look at our favorite heart-shaped Valentine’s Day candy without including a lollipop in our list! Our top pick is one that everyone is familiar with, the famous Charms Valentine Pop. You’ll instantly recognize these pops by their heart shape and Cupid’s arrow printed on the pop. Plus, their cherry flavor makes these lollipops extra sweet.

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.

#4 – Junior Mints
Junior Mints are a favorite any time of the year but more so this time of year when their minty flavor evokes holiday memories. These creamy mints covered in delicious milk chocolate are the perfect candy to snack on while curling up next to the fire while watching some classic holiday movies.

#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.

#2 – M & M’s Peanut
The candy that melts in your mouth, not in your hands made our list and it’s no surprise. A favorite of many, M & M’s are great for an afternoon snack, a lunchtime treat or anytime you want to get some of that great peanut and milk chocolate flavor you crave.

And here it is, the #1 selling candy on Cyber Monday was…

Candy Buttons
Another classic candy made our list and for good reason – everyone loves them! Candy Buttons have been around since the 1950’s and each year nearly a billion of these sweet treats are made. The lemon, lime, and cherry flavors of these candy dots have been a favorite for generations and it looks like they’ll be a favorite for many more.

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!

Let’s dig into the recipe that can be found here at KitchenFunWithMy3Sons.com:

  • – 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
  • – 1 squeeze bottle with a number 2 tip Sugarbelle line from Michaels

Once you gather all your ingredients, it’s time to have fun!

  • – Using a double boiler, melt the candy melts and coconut and mix until smooth
  • – Carefully scoop the melted candy melt into the decorating bottle
  • – Place about 10 pretzel sticks onto the parchment paper
  • – Using the squeeze bottle, pipe the details of a Christmas tree onto the pretzel
  • – Sprinkle some Christmas sprinkles onto the chocolate
  • – Allow to harden for 2 hours before carefully removing from parchment paper and enjoying!

The photos our friends at Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons posted show just how neat these treats are, but don’t worry if yours don’t look as perfect!  There’s nothing wrong with a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree the first time around! Plus, the best part about these treats is that you can make each one unique right down to the color since we have different colors of candy melts you can use.

Elf on the Shelf Christmas Candy and Advent Calendar

It’s almost time for everyone’s favorite elf to make his annual appearance bringing joy and laughter to kids (and admit it, adults as well!) around the world.

The elf we’re talking about is none other than the Elf on the Shelf who first appeared in a children’s book in 2005.  Since then, the little guy has become a huge hit and a social media sensation as he helps kids count down the days until Santa arrives.

We all know the Elf on the Shelf helps Santa maintain the “naughty and nice list” so in turn we have to treat him well so we keep in the good graces of the man with all the toys!

This Christmas, we have some new Elf on the Shelf items that are sure to be hit and like most of our Christmas candy and advent calendars, sell out quickly.  

Elf on the Shelf Advent Calendar

This isn’t just your ordinary Advent calendar!  This one features the main elf himself and comes with…. chocolate!  It’s a sweet way to add a bit of whimsy to the traditional Advent calendar and kids will love counting down the days until Christmas while enjoying the 24 pieces of milk chocolate and the fun-cut included with the calendar.

Elf on the Shelf Chocolate Elves

We all know that the Elf on the Shelf loves to leave little gifts and treats for good boys and girls, and these mini chocolate elves are perfect for that!  We won’t tell if you save a few for yourself as well, because we know these sweet treats are pretty irresistible.
