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.

October 31 is looming large. Most trick-or-treaters have picked out their costumes. Pillow cases and plastic pumpkin buckets are out of the closet. And, candy is top of mind!

Here is a roundup of 5 of our most unique Halloween candies for this frightfully fang-tastic event:

1. World’s Largest Gummy Skull
Weighing in at 5 pounds, the World’s Largest Gummy Skull is grossly entertaining. The packaging includes a slot underneath where you can place your own small flashlight to make it glow. You can gift this cranium to friends and family, light it up … and eat it! Also noteworthy: it’s gluten-free.

2. Cauldron of Chocolate Gift Basket

Another great gift idea … especially for those who won’t be trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Filled with mini Snickers, Milky Way, Hershey’s, Reese’s Cups, and more, this reusable 9 1/4″ x 9 1/4″ x 5″ black cauldron is great for handing out treats next year.

3. Snickers Pumpkins
If you’re a trick-or-treater and you get a Snickers shaped like a pumpkin, it’s highly doubtful you’ll trade it out at the end of the night  … unless you have peanut allergies.

4. Halloween Peeps
Halloween Peeps made our list of Halloween-must have because you can do so much with then. Pop them on top of cakes and cupcakes, insert them into treat bags, place them on a straw to create Peeps pops, string them to make Halloween garland, and, of course, eat them.

5. Fall Pumpkin Gummies
These bulk pumpkin-shaped gummy candies are ideal for Halloween parties because they add lots of seasonal color:  bright orange (orange flavor), yellow (lemon flavor), light orange (black cherry flavor). They’re also perfect for classroom parties and treat bags.

Here’s a holiday treat that’s shiny new and groovy over at Candy.com: Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Ribbon Candy!

There are a couple of reasons why this candy is special.

1. It’s made in the USA (yay!)

2. It’s made by a small family-owned candy company (double yay!)

3. It’s unique. In all of my years in the food industry, I’ve never come across ribbon candy dipped in chocolate. Genius!

4. Each chocolate-covered ribbon candy is sprinkled with candy cane bits to make it presentation-worthy. And each holiday red gift box doesn’t require wrapping, so you’re spared from having to hunt down tape, scissors, paper, ribbon, etc.

This special holiday candy is also one of Candy.com’s “12 Days of Sweet Deals,” so it’s on sale until Tues., Dec. 6. Score!

Halloween Eve Treats 0

It’s night before Halloween, and I’ve got a few curiously compelling chocolate treats for you.

The PRAIM Group, (the company behind the witty Bloomsberry USA chocolate bars) has partnered with artisans Knock Knock and Anne Taintor to create two additional lines of clever chocolate.

The results are entertaining … and will make you look pretty clever should you choose to gift them to friends, family, co-workers, ex’s, etc.

Exhibit A: The No Calorie Dark Chocolate Bar (I’d check “On a Carrot”)

Exhibit B: The Have a Nice, Happy, Merry Bar (this bar truly is one-size-fits-all)

Exhibit C: The I Dream About Milk Chocolate Bar (really, who doesn’t??)

There are plenty more bars where these came from. Click here to browse and buy the collection.

Happy early Halloween!
