Snack Time!

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.

Can You Taste The Difference Between These Sugar Free Candies?

This definitely isn’t the case! Sugar free candies taste incredibly similar, if not exactly like the originals. Want to find out for yourself? Here’s three we recommend when making the switch to sugar free candy:

Dubble Bubble Gum: We guarantee you won’t be able to tell the difference between regular bubble gum and Dubble Bubble Gum! This gum is a classic that has that bubble gum taste, just without all of the sugar.

Gummy Candies: From gummy fish to gummy bears, the sugar free versions taste remarkably close to their full sugar family members. We also have sugar free peach rings for another sugar free take on a fan favorite candy.

Jolly Ranchers: What Jolly Rancher flavor is your favorite? Chances are your favorite tastes just as good as a sugar free version. Put these in your candy dish at work and we’re sure that your coworkers will love these as much as the others.
