Brach's Christmas Nougats are a classic Christmas candy. They are a disk shaped nougat candy wrapped in cellophane. These are most recognizable by the little Christmas tree in the center.
These are a very popular candy for the holidays and come in a variety of flavors.
Peppermint nougats are the most popular flavor. If you like peppermint you will be please with the cool minty flavor of
For those not fond of peppermint, you can also get nougat in a cool Wintergreen flavor nougats. These are not as easily found as the peppermint.
Now for those of you that like all the flavors of nougats there is a Christmas mix bag. You can get an assorted bag of peppermint, wintergreen and cinnamon flavored nougats.
At one time you could get a bag of just cinnamon flavor nougats, however cinnamon was not very popular and for a while they were discontinued. Due to a small demand they were brought back, but they are only available in the Christmas mix bag.
Brach's made it very easy to tell what flavor you are getting by the colors. All of them have the red stripes around the edges. The ones with the white centers are peppermint, the green centers are wintergreen and the red / pink centers are cinnamon.
Brach's Christmas Nougats are a tasty treat to fill your candy dishes with. For many it is a tradition to have these every year. I am amazed at how many kids actually like these nougats. I am not sure if it is for the taste or the cute little trees in the center.

Old fashion hard candy is a must have candy for Christmas. For many it is not just the candy they have to have , but it is the memories it provides. I think everyone remembers eating this candy as a kid at grandma's house. So it's quickly becoming a tradition that is carried on from past generations.
One of the most popular candy is the old time hard candy and the filled candy. The come in an assorted mix in a resealable canister. This is perfect for filling your candy dish or just eating right
out of the can.
Then there is the ribbon candy. It is available in either thin ribbon or baby ribbon. Fruity very thin candy shaped like a ribbon or baby ribbon which is a more chunkier piece of ribbon candy.
I can't forget to mention my all time favorite and that is cut rock candy. I love the fruit and spice flavors, but what appeals most to me is the design in the middle.
No matter which of the old fashion Christmas candy is your favorite mix them all together in your candy dish and they just look almost to pretty to eat.
Here is a cute story I would like to share with you, that one of my customers told me a few years ago. When her grandmother passed away, she inherited the Christmas candy dish. So every year she buys 2 cans of hard candy and 2 cans of the filled to put in her candy dish so it feels like grandma is sharing Christmas with her family. The part that I found really cute was that her kids do not like this candy , which most kids don't. So after the first of the year she ends up throwing away most of the candy that was placed in the dish. Yet year after year she buys the candy that reminder her so much of her grandma, without it she said Christmas would not be the same.
