The fall semester will soon be upon us, and we all know what that means…junk food.  For those of you going off to college for the first time, I am sure you are having a little bit of anxiety about putting on the “Freshman 15”.  Even students returning to school fear packing on the pounds after a summer of working on our beach bods. Keeping the weight off can be tough, especially if your mother is anything like this one and feels the need to constantly be sending you something like this:

Not to worry, there are plenty of more sensible candy options which are no slouches when it comes to taste.  I’ll be highlighting a few of these so you can get the school year started off right!

1. First up: these babies from Brookside. Thirty individually-packaged pouches of divine little candies made with real fruit juice and covered in decadent dark chocolate.  Each pack is chock-full of antioxidants and only 100 calories! Throw a pouch in your bag for a guilt-free snack between classes.

2. Who needs beauty products when you have candy?  These heart-shaped pomegranate/raspberry fruit snacks from Beauty Sweeties contain aloe-vera, collagen and COQ10, a powerful antioxidant. Not to mention Vitamin E, which is great for your complexion.  I definitely recommend that you try these, you’ll thank me later.

3. Can we just take a second to reflect on how ingenious these are?  Imagine this: You’re running to class (post-Starbucks run) with a hot tea and realize, in your haste, you didn’t add any honey!  Good thing you have one of these all-natural Lavender Honey Tea Spoons from the Melville Candy Company with you.  These are great for sweetening up hot beverages or just enjoying as a healthy alternative to a lollipop.  And, if lavender isn’t your “cup of tea”, these cute little spoons also come in Clover Honey and Peppermint.

Of course, exercise and a well-balanced diet are the best way to stay healthy, but that does not mean you have to cut candy out of your life.  College students are generally very busy people, and often times that means unhealthy decisions are made when it comes to food.  Hopefully these products, in addition to the many other all-natural goodies on Candy.com, will give you some sweet ideas about staying svelte in school.

Heres a treat for your backyard barbecue that promises to cool you down, no cooler needed!

Nobody loves a popsicle or creamsicle in summertime more than we do, but if you’re setting up a candy buffet or snack table for your summertime soiree (or something a little more laid-back!) frozen treats can be a potential headache.  You need the extra cooler, and enough ice to keep it cool for 3 or 4 hours.  Plus, you need to keep an eye on it for when it needs to be emptied and refreshed.  And you can still end up with all the goodies becoming a goopy, soggy mess!

Well, we found the perfect solution.  These real size ice pop and cream pop lollipops from the Melville Candy Company come in all your favorite flavors, and are an easy addition to your snack and candy buffet.  Not a lot of candy can say summertime the ways these do!

For a neat centerpiece, try this:  Take a standard metal bucket that you can find at a garden center or home design store.  In the bottom put a foam or styrofoamblock, and stick the popsicle sticks up right into the foam.  Next fill the bucket up to the top with clear rock candy.  Now you have faux ice to go along with your lollipop popsicles!IMG_0691

Hi everyone!  Happy Independence Day!

We wanted to give you guys one more cool idea for your fourth of july celebration.  A little bit of rock candy can take your traditional ice cream sandwich and make it a cool patriotic treat.  All you do is take some rock candy, in this case red and blue and lay it out on a flat plate, and when you have the sandwiches made, (or take them out of the package, no judging here!) you roll them back and forth across the plate.  Also, just so you know, we used these delicious chocolate honey stinger waffles for ours. Check out the results!

These can also be used for any color themed event like a summer birthday or even to add some color to your next backyard barbeque.  The little toothpick flags are an easy touch too.  If you can’t find a simple flag pattern to use online, just use red and blue construction paper.
