It’s Almost National Candy Cane Day!

National Candy Cane Day | BlairCandy.com

Did you know that December 26th is National Candy Cane Day? Whether you love the classic, peppermint candy cane or one of the crazy new flavors that appears every year, you have to celebrate this iconic candy. But how much do you know about this traditional holiday treat? Here are a few things you may not have known:

Legend has it that these treats have been spreading Christmas cheer since 1670! Apparently, a German church patron shaped the candy to look like shepherd hooks and handed them out to children during the church service. Why? To keep them quiet and occupied during the long service!

These treats didn’t make it to the United States until the mid 1800’s! They also didn’t add the red stripe until the 1900’s. Overall, over 1.2 billion candy canes make it to shelves in the U.S. during the holiday season every year.

The world’s largest candy cane probably won’t fit in your home! The Guinness World Record goes to a Geneva pastry chef who made a candy cane that measured over 51 feet long and made with over 900 pounds of sugar.

If these facts have you wanting a candy cane, head over to BlairCandy.com! There you’ll find all of the classic and contemporary candy canes in bulk you need to celebrate National Candy Cane Day. Shop now for a festive, holiday treat or two.

We love to toss in favorites like chocolate covered raisins or Reese’s Pieces!

Reindeer Food: This can be called a variety of names, Reindeer Food, Reindeer Bait, Reindeer Chow, Puppy Chow…regardless, this treat is absolutely delicious.

Old Fashioned Hard Christmas Candy & Snacks Make the Season Bright!

Old Fashioned Hard Christmas Candy | BlairCandy.com

There is a certain fondness we have for vintage items at the holidays. Tartan plaid dresses, vinyl records of holiday hits, red ribbons, heirloom Christmas dinner plates, and of course, nostalgic candies that let us walk back down memory lane. You can’t beat the taste of old-fashioned Christmas candy. And the test of time lets it show: we still see bags and boxes of candy from our childhood on store shelves.

Maybe you remember running to the corner store with your parents or friends in tow. On the way, you might have passed a toy store with the latest train model in the window only to press your nose to the glass for a second before buying a handful (or two!) of penny candy. Or maybe you remember sitting beneath the Christmas tree with your brothers and sisters, surrounded by wrapping paper as you unwrapped the old fashioned hard Christmas candy you found in your stockings. You felt the magic of the season – and then you celebrated it with a little something sweet. Old fashioned hard Christmas candy or snacks can take you back in time and make those memories feel even sweeter.

Add Something Sweeter to Your Holiday Baking Recipes – Part 1

It’s not the holidays without food! And while our to-do lists, shopping lists, and meal preparation lists may be long this time of year, it’s important to not forget or skimp on the favorite part of the meal: dessert. Sometimes a cookie or piece of cake could use a little extra “wow” factor and that’s where we come in! Here are some of our favorite ways to use candy in cooking and baking this holiday season.

M&M’s in Bulk for Holiday Recipes | BlairCandy.com

Brownies: Brownie batter is a great opportunity to mix in some sweet treats, like M&M’s! These candies are colorful, crunchy (and delightfully melty if you bite into your brownie soon after it comes out of the oven!). We recommend purchasing M&M’s in bulk, since who knows how many batches of sweets you may need to make? You can purchase M&M’s in bulk and other candies mentioned here from the unwrapped candy section on our website.

Thumbprint Cookies: Who can forget about thumbprint cookies? These cookies are usually a sugar or peanut-butter dough and have a craved-after candy in the middle. You could go with the traditional Hershey’s Kiss as the topping, or you could switch up the recipe with chocolate covered peanuts or pretzels.

Trail Mix: Trail mix is a quick snack option for holiday shopping, cocktail parties, or other events on your Christmas calendar. Combine salty snacks like peanuts and pretzels with Whopper pieces. These are fun treats for family members of all ages. Plus, it can be an easy addition to any coffee or dining room table as a centerpiece!

We love variety, and while traditional dessert recipes are go-to’s for the holiday season, spice it up this year — mix in some whole or chopped candies to your dessert recipes. Shop now at BlairCandy.com and stay tuned for part 2!
