Snack Time!

Our Favorite Summertime Snacks

Summer is almost here and we can hardly wait! We’re counting down the days until we can head to the ball game, go boating on the lake, and fire up the BBQ for a weekend cookout. As we look ahead, we’re also thinking about our favorite summertime snacks that are the perfect companion to all your outdoor adventures!

Cotton Candy
Cotton Candy just screams “summertime!” A favorite snack that sold at little league concession stands, outdoor carnivals, and state fairs, cotton candy is also available in convenient packages for you to enjoy at home or on-the-go. Our delicious cotton candy, or candy floss as some call it, comes in a dozen different flavors packaged in a convenient 32oz tub.

Pickles
Pickles aren’t just for putting on top of your cheeseburger! They’re also great for tossing in a cooler and enjoying while boating, hiking, or just chilling in the backyard. We can’t think of a better low-calorie, healthy snack to have during the summer. Van Holten’s pickles are available in Dill, Kosher Garlic and the ever-popular flavor – Hot!

Sunflower Seeds
What’s our favorite salty snack? Sunflower seeds of course! These treats are pretty much the official snack of summer and are perfect for taking along to a little league game or buying at the baseball concession stand. David Sunflower Seeds are one of our most popular snack items and besides the original flavor we all know and love, they’re also available in BBQ and Ranch.

Beef Jerky
While a great snack year-round, Beef Jerky is especially popular during the summer because it’s easy to grab a bag, toss it in with the rest of your outdoor gear, and enjoy it as a protein-packed pick-me-up. We have a great selection of Amish Smokehouse Beef Jerky in nearly a dozen unique flavors as well as a great assortment of meats from Buffalo Bill’s.

Snack Mix
Whether you’re out hiking, biking or just walking around the block, when you get the urge for a snack, reach for a healthy one! Snax Club snack mixes are the perfect tag-along. Packed with nuts, raisins, candy, and other delicious bits. Some varieties are even gluten-free and contain ingredients to help give you an extra boost.

Of course, this is just a small sampling of all the delicious snack foods we have available in addition to our huge selection of candy. Be sure to check out our snack food page to see what else is available and stock up for all your summertime adventures.

Sunflower Seeds – A Popular Baseball Snack

Sunflower seeds are a popular summertime snack and remain a big seller at little league and other outdoor sports concession stands. The seeds sold in snack packs are still in the shell and are eaten by grabbing a few, popping them in your mouth, chewing, and spitting out the shell.

The most popular brand of sunflower seeds is DAVID and their slogan is “Eat. Spit. Be Happy!” In fact, according to the company, DAVID Seeds are the official seed of baseball because “baseball and spittin’ go hand and hand!”

While not the most dainty of snacks to eat, they remain a popular and healthy choice!

Sunflower seeds are roasted and then salted or flavored depending on what variety you’re purchasing. Most of us are familiar with the old standby, the original flavor, which is a fan favorite for its robust, salty flavor that you can taste with just your imagination.

Over the years, additional flavors of DAVID Sunflower Seeds have blossomed. Are you a fan of pickles? Then their vlasic Dill Pickle flavor may be just what you’re craving. Like BBQ? Don’t worry, there are a few different varieties of BBQ flavored sunflower seeds that you may want to check out.

Even some of the trendy flavors, like bacon, ranch, and even Old Bay have made their way into the DAVID line of flavored sunflower seeds. But at the end of the day, you just can’t beat an original!

Whether you’re looking for a summertime snack for yourself or looking to stock your league’s concession stand, we have all the popular flavors of sunflower seeds to satisfy you and your fan’s craving.

You’ll Go Hog Wild Over Chocolate Covered Bacon and Pork Rinds!

Here at Blair Candy, we’re more than just candy – we’re a great place to pick up all your favorite snacks. Whether you’re looking for beef jerky and garlic pickles or sunflower seeds and Lance crackers, we’ve got what it takes to calm your snack cravings.

While Dunkin’ Donuts may have won the Internet over when they announced they are now selling bags of bacon along with your favorite coffee drink, we have some news on the pork front as well!

Our warehouse was all abuzz the other day when a shipment of some new snacks arrived. Why? Because we now have chocolate-covered bacon! You read that right, we have chocolate-covered bacon and it’s ridiculously good.

Oinks Chocolate Covered Bacon is now available in two delicious flavors, with each being gluten-free and only 90 calories. They’re great for an afternoon snack or whenever you’re craving a sweet and salty treat.

Each thick cut of applewood smoked bacon is covered in rich dark chocolate, then either drizzled with white chocolate or spicy jalapeno for an extra kick!

While we’re on the subject of pork, let’s talk about chicharrones, or as they are more commonly called – pork rinds.

Slim Jim Pork Rinds are now available and ready to answer the call from a squealing stomach aching for a snack. These fried pork rinds contain only 1 gram of carbs per serving which makes them a perfect low-carb treat that will keep your appetite from crying wee wee wee all the way home!

Available in Squealin’ Hot, for those who like their pork rinds with an extra kick, or Hog Wild BBQ that adds a smoky flavor that takes these fried treats to a whole new level.

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.
