One of the most delicious aspects of the holiday season is the many different types of Christmas candy made available. From cordial cherries to Christmas themed treats and candy canes, there is something for even the most discerning tastes. Whether you prefer ribbon candies, hard or gel filled candies, cream filled delights, truffles, almond bark, or specialty chocolates, you’ll find something to appeal to your sweet tooth.
Thin mints are tasty treats any time of year but they are also a popular Christmas candy. They are used to fill candy dishes when holiday guests are expected. Guests are also treated to melt-in-your-mouth dinner mints, cordial cherries, truffles, and other fine chocolates, which all make great gifts too. You can often find Christmas candy in decorative boxes ready for gift giving.
Children will enjoy the many flavors of Christmas candy that are offered in holiday shapes. These include marshmallow snowmen, chocolate Santa bars, and tasty treats wrapped in bright, festive foils for the holidays. Other fun shapes could include as chocolate crisps shaped like teddy bears, caramel or peanut butter filled Christmas trees, and gold foil wrapped chocolate coins. Pick up some “coal” candy and sneak it into a stocking as a joke.
Candy canes are a traditional Christmas candy, now available in many different flavors besides peppermint. While spearmint isn’t new, cherry, strawberry, blueberry, bubble gum, cotton candy, sour apple, and chocolate mint are some of the exciting flavors now available. Candy canes also come in trademark character packaging, often with their own distinct flavors. Don’t forget oversized canes and lollipops too.
Look for plastic ornaments and candy cane shaped tubes filled with individually wrapped treats or loose candies such as M&M’s and Skittles. You can find banks filled with candy that can be used to save change once all the treats have been eaten. Look for Christmas candy puzzles, bracelets, and necklaces too. They make great stocking stuffers and grab bag gifts.
If you’re planning to create gift baskets, decorate gifts, or make special wreaths with Christmas candy, you can also purchase bulk candy in order to save money. You can find bulk candy stores in malls and online. Bulk candies are available wrapped or unwrapped. Some of these include white or milk chocolate dipped pretzels, sour balls, salt water taffy, or party mixes with chocolate covered nuts and raisins.
