Christmas stocking filled with candy are a Christmas tradition. However you might be surprised to know that adults enjoy getting candy filled stockings as much as kids do.

We have come up with a cute little stocking filled with retro and nostalgic candies that are perfect for kids, teens and adults.  These are very popular for corporate events, holiday parties and even Santa has been known to give a few of these away.

What is so special about these stockings you ask? Let me tell you.  While they are only about 8 inches from the toe to the top of the header, they are chucked full of candy and cost less then $4.00.

They are other stockings out there that cost less, but usually they have a few pieces of  penny candy.
We make up our stockings as the orders come in so the candy is always fresh and delicious.

We have picked out a good selection of the oldies, but goodies for our stockings.  What is really cool is that while the adults will remember eating these candies as kids, they will be new candies for the most part for today's youth.

You will get 15 pieces of candy which do vary. Some of the candies are  Frooties, Charms Sour Balls, Mary Jane, Slo Poke, Black Cow, Sweet Tarts, Smarties, Root Beer Barrels, Candy Sticks, Wax Bottles, Chick O Sticks, Razzles and the list goes on.

I think the only thing what would make these Christmas stockings a little more old fashioned would be if we could get the cute little red mesh ones, however I think those are a thing of the past.

So if you are looking to buy Christmas stockings for parties, or hand outs or gifts, these are perfect.
You can buy just one or 101 whatever you need.

Say Merry Christmas with a little piece of the past.

Candy canes aren't just peppermint anymore.  There are so many different flavors to choose from now when it comes to candy canes.  Did you know many many years when they first came out they weren't even canes. Nope the were just sticks , while they were still peppermint in flavor the color was just white. My how times have changed.

There is just about every flavor of Candy cane you can imagine. From sour , sweet, chocolate, candy canes that taste like soda pop and even spicy ones. What ever your taste buds are craving I am sure there will be a candy cane to please it.

If sour candy canes are what you like  then Sour Patch or Warheads  candy canes are the best to go for.  These are extremely popular with the kids. But even adults like sour so these two are your best choices.  These will definitely  make your taste buds stand up and take notice.

Now if you are looking for something on the sweet side. Pixy sticks  or lifesaver candy canes are the way to go.   The lifesaver ones are more sweet. Pixy Stick candy canes are actually filled with sugar so they are a bit tangy on the inside , sweeter on the outside.

Now for those chocolate lovers Hershey candy canes are the way to go. Not only to they have that Hershey chocolate flavor everyone loves. They also have a mint flavor. A great combination of chocolate and mint.

Soda pop flavored candy canes come in A&W Root-beer,  Orange Crush and Dr. Pepper flavors. Now this are a big hit with kids of course, but due to the old time flavors they are very popular with adults as well.

For those who like things a little spicy , you need to try the
Red Hots Candy canes. These have a nice cinnamon flavor.
Nothing that will burn your mouth,  enough cinnamon to give
you a little zing.

There are way more flavors and brands to choose from, but these seem to be the most popular flavors of candy canes.  Of course there are still the classics peppermint or spearmint flavors as well.  If you still can't decide which candy canes to get, buy the all.

 Gummy eyes are one of our most popular Halloween candies.  Personally I am not crazy at the thought of biting in to an eyeball, but kids love them.

Popping an eyeball in my mouth and chewing that gummy texture is not for me, but it is amazing how much fun the kids have with them.

Not only are they great to hand out for trick or treat, but also fun to use when you are baking.

If you are looking for a sweet dessert that kids will love how about some cupcakes with gummy eyeballs.   These are extremely easy to make and cupcakes don't take a lot of time.

All you need is

  • Gummy Eyeballs
  • Cake Mix
  • Frosting
  • Red Gel
  • Halloween Cup Cake Papers

I was going for quick  as I was told last minute that a treat was needed. So I just made up a bunch of cupcakes like normal. Popped a gummy eyeball in the middle and add some lines with the red gel to make them look blood shot. However there are so many ways to make this much more spooky with a little time and imagination.

This were made for a high school party. I didn't have a lot of time to come up with something I thought would be special, but I was told they were a big hit and were gone pretty quick.

Buy a bag of gummy body pars for  your Halloween  candy hand out candy and be the hit of the neighborhood.

I am not sure why, but if the candy is gross the kids will love it.

Candy body parts come in an assorted bag. You get gummy eyes, feet, ears heck you even get gummy brains.

All of these gummies are fruit flavors and are perfect for handing out as the are individually wrapped.

It's always hard , at least for me when trying to choose a candy that I want to hand out to my trick and treaters.  Of course you want to have something they are going to like, yet I always try to have something age appropriate. 

When it comes to giving out gummy candy for Halloween you can't go wrong. Most all kids no matter what age love gummies.  Seeing they are a chewy candy they are also something that the smaller children can eat without the worry of choking.

If you are trying to find a candy that is great for kids of all ages  gummy candy is a choice you really can't go wrong with. Buy a bag of gummy body parts and watch how much fun the kids have with them.

Necco conversation hearts are once again available in the classic flavors. A few years ago the original flavors of the Necco conversation hearts were discontinued and new flavors brought out. The originals were missed by many.

 Why were they discontinued is a question we are asked by many of our customers. The answer to that question is a bit puzzling .  Apparently  they came out with new flavors to appeal to the kids.
No long could you get the banana and lime, they were replaced with lemon and blue raspberry.

The only way you could get the original flavors was to buy them in a 50 pound bulk box. Now I know many customers love the classic flavors, but not to many want 50 pounds.  We found a company that repackaged them under their name, but they are the original classic flavors of the Necco brand hearts.

For the last couple of years we have been ordering them for this company and hold our breath until our order arrives.  I am like most people and like the originals not the new flavors. As soon as our order arrives I have to rip open and bag and do a taste test.

Once again this year my mouth was quite happy to taste the  banana and lime flavor hearts.
Many ask,  How can we tell if we are getting the classic or the new flavors ?
That is easy check the colors of the hearts if you see blue then you are getting the new flavors.

Necco classic flavors are : Banana, Lime, Grape, Cherry, Orange and Wintergreen.

I do somewhat understand that the candy companies of course want flavors that appeal to kids, however what they also need to understand is that adults eat a lot of candy as well.  Many times the old time candies are bought not just because they are liked, but also for the memories of their youth.

Buy Necco Classic Conversation Hearts now if they are a favorite of yours, as we never know from one year to the next if we are going to be able to get them again.
