Summer Candy

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.

Build the Perfect Ice Cream Bar

Bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips | BlairCandy.comSummer is coming to an end and what’s a better way to celebrate all of the fun than with an ice cream sundae bar! Friends and family of all ages will love creating a sweet treat that’s just for them during the festivities. But what do you need to create the ultimate sundae bar?

1. Cone or Bowl? Give your guests the option to build a sky high cone or a packed sundae bowl. Leave out waffle cones, cake cones, and disposable sturdy bowls for your guests to choose from. (Or build a second treat!)

2. Ice Cream. Obviously you have to have chocolate and vanilla, but will you add other flavors? We recommend sticking with the two classics and adding a wild card flavor like cookies n’ cream, rocky road, or mint chocolate chip.

3. Candy. Here’s where things get fun. Save time and energy by buying pre-chopped chopped ice cream toppings like Reese’s, Butterfinger, Snickers, and more! Also, you can easily add baking pieces.

4. Other Toppings. Chocolate Sauce? Marshmallow Fluff? There’s other toppings besides candy that you can add to a buffet. Crushed up cookies, brownie pieces, and fruit are all things that make ice cream even better.
