All Chocolate NECCO Wafers are now Available!

Lately, in the candy world, everything old is new again! And that’s great news for nostalgic candy fans. We recently wrote about the return of one of our favorite candy bars, the NECCO Sky Bar – and today we have news about another NECCO classic.

If you follow our blog, you probably know that in 2018 NECCO, the New England Confectionary Company closed after filing for bankruptcy. The company is best known for its candy wafers which have been produced since 1847. Like Sky Bar, the NECCO Wafers were almost lost forever when the candy company closed shop.

Shortly after NECCO closed, Spangler Candy scooped up the recipe and equipment used to make NECCO Wafers, and production resumed in 2019. Almost immediately after hitting the shelves from their short vacation, NECCO Wafers became an instant hit once again. Fans of the classic candy were delighted to have one of their favorites back, while the press and excitement surrounding their return garnered a whole batch of new fans.

 

NECCO Wafers come in eight delicious flavors – lemon, lime, orange, clove, cinnamon, wintergreen, licorice and chocolate. Now, can you guess which is the most popular?

If you said “chocolate,” you’re right! Spangler kept the taste of seven flavors exactly the same but tweaked the chocolate to have a richer cocoa flavor which fans instantly noticed.

In response, Spangler has introduced a roll of… you guessed it… all chocolate NECCO Wafers!

“Once we brought back the original assorted roll of Necco Wafers this past summer, the demand for the chocolate roll was almost instantaneous,” says Diana Eschhofen, Spangler director, corporate communications. “We know this has been a long-awaited return, and we’re ready to give chocolate candy lovers something they’ve been missing.”

Both the assorted roll of NECCO Wafers and the new all-chocolate roll are in stock in our huge candy warehouse, so be sure to buy a box of both! Speaking of nostalgic candy, we’ve got the largest selection of all your favorites so be sure to check out everything we have – you may just find an old-time candy favorite you forgot about!

Can I have more?

While we’re on the subject of Reese’s… did you know that they recently came out with the perfect morning snack? It’s true! The Reese’s Peanut Butter Snack Cake is perfect for that mid-morning, need a pick-me-up, treat to get you through lunch.

KIT KAT DUOS Mocha + Chocolate
Building off the success of KIT KAT’s first DUO flavor, Mint + Chocolate, Hershey’s is introducing yet another flavor – Mocha + Chocolate. These King Size (yes, another BIG chocolate bar) KIT KAT DUOS feature the original crisp wafer that the candy bar is known for, but adds in a delectable mix of mocha creme, coffee bits, and the rich milk chocolate you crave.

Hot Chocolate Bombs: The Best Way to Warm Up this Holiday Season

It’s time for shorter days, cooler weather, and the holidays! One of our favorite things to do this time of year is light a fire in the fireplace, take in the glow of the lights on the Christmas tree as they fill the room, and sip on a delicious cup of hot chocolate.

While there are plenty of instant hot chocolate mixes available at your local grocery store, around here we tend to leave those on the shelf. Why? Because this time of year we stock our huge candy warehouse with the most delicious type of chocolate you will ever taste – it’s so good, “it’s da bomb!”

Literally.

Our Hot Chocolate Bombs will change the way you make hot chocolate forever. Each one is made with rich, delicious Belgian chocolate with mini marshmallows tucked inside.

Now, here’s where the magic happens!

First things first. Get the fireplace ready, turn on the tree lights, and get into your favorite pair of comfortable PJs. Now that you’re settled, grab your favorite mug and heat up 8oz of milk. Place the Hot Chocolate Bomb into the mug and pour the hot milk over it. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and, voila! The most delicious hot chocolate you’ll ever have is ready to enjoy.

Hot Chocolate Bombs are perfect for holiday gatherings, sleepovers, cold nights… well, just about anytime you want to warm the body and soul with chocolatey goodness.

They also make a great stocking stuffer as do many of the Christmas Candy we have available for those on both the naughty AND nice list! Be sure to shop our wholesale candy store early to get the best selection.

Start a New Tradition with an Advent Calendar this Christmas

There’s no holiday that brings more excitement to young ones than Christmas. From the decorations that adorn homes and neighborhoods to the anticipation of the annual visit from Saint Nick, kids love counting down the days to the big celebration.

One tradition that has been around for generations, and remains popular today, is the Advent Calendar. Used to track the 24 days from the start of Advent to Christmas day, these calendars feature “doors” that you open each day to reveal a special treat inside.

We know it’s hard to resist opening all 24 days at once, but patience is a must!

Our Advent Calendars are always a big hit with our customers and they tend to sell out very quickly. Since they’re seasonal, they’re only available once so when they’re gone, they’re gone until next year.

Check out some of these Advent Calendars for 2020 and get ready to continue the tradition or start a new one with your family.

COVID-19 Protection Tips for Concession Stand, Foodservice and Candy Store Workers

If you work at a concession stand, food service outlet, or candy store, protecting yourself from exposure to COVID-19 is paramount and is something that should be taken seriously.

As we know, the coronavirus is spread from person-to-person through respiratory droplets from coughs, sneezes, and common conversation, as well as from having close contact with others (6 feet). It’s also possible to become infected with COVID-19 simply by touching a surface or an item with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.

There are several ways for you to protect yourself from exposure as outlined by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which include:

– Limit close contact with others by maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet, when possible.

– Minimize handling cash, credit cards, and mobile devices, where possible.

– Practice routine cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces, such as workstations, cash registers, touch screens, door handles, tables, and countertops, following the directions on the cleaning product’s label.

– Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. An alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol can be used, but not as a substitute for cleaning hands with soap and water.

– Key times to clean hands in general include:

– Before, during, and after preparing food

– Before eating food

– After using the toilet

– After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing

– Additional times to clean hands on the job include:

– Before and after work shifts

– Before and after work breaks

– After touching frequently touched surfaces

– After interacting with a customer who is visibly ill

– After putting on, touching, or removing cloth face coverings

– After touching objects that have been handled by customers, such as utensils, menus, cups, and trash

– After touching dirty surfaces like floors, walls and soiled carriers and equipment

– Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Here at Blair Candy, in our warehouse, offices, and our retail outlet, all our team members have been trained on proper sanitation procedures and our policies revised to ensure that those who feel ill stay home and monitor their symptoms. Face coverings are required not only for our team members, but for visitors and customers to our outlets, in addition to proper social distancing.

Our wholesale division has increased our supply of face masks and hand sanitizer so our bricks-and-mortar customers can rest assured that there will be plenty available for them to purchase.

We have also added these items to our website for those individuals, businesses outside our local delivery/pick-up area, and our regular wholesale customers can have access to them as well.

The Best Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

A quick search on the Internet for “best Rice Krispies Treat recipe” will bring up many claiming to be “the best.” But is one really better than another? Possibly, but they all start out with butter, marshmallows, and Rice Krispies cereal.

We turned to the Rice Krispie Treats experts, Kellogg’s, for the “official” recipe for making these fantastic treats at home:

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows

— OR —

  • 4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal

Directions:

  1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
  3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.

Pretty simple, right?

What would you say if we told you there’s even a simpler – and way more FUN – way of making these treats?

We’re not kidding! Again, we turn to our friends at Kellogg’s who just introduced Rice Krispies Treat Kits that are going to blow your mind!

Available in three different types: Chocolate Frosted Donut, Vanilla Glazed Donut and get this… Magical Unicorn! The kits include the Rice Krispies, marshmallows, frosting, toppings, even the cutout for the magical unicorn shape. All you need to do is add butter, plus sugar and milk for the toppings.

These, along with our new family S’mores kits, are perfect for getting the family together for a fun activity that everyone will love. Plus, there’s a sweet reward at the end!
