Summer Friendly Candy

Summer is here again, and it’s a HOT one.

We all love barbecues, picnics, beach days, pool days and anything that has to do with summertime. The only negative side to summer is the brutal heat, especially if you live down south.

Don’t let the sun ruin the fun! When you are hosting an event in the summertime it is important to think about food and sweets that are NON MELT-ABLE, or in other words – Summer Friendly!

That means no chocolate in your candy buffet jars on fourth of July unless you want to ladle chocolate soup into bowls for your guests (actually that sounds delicious and they would probably enjoy it) but for THIS shindig lets say everything needs to be in tact when the guests arrive.

Here is a list of the most tasty yet least melt able candies we have at Bulk Candy Store for your exciting upcoming summer parties, festivals and events.

1. Swedish Fish

Swedish Fish - AssortedSwedish Fish are sweet, soft, chewy and are known for being the most delicious tasting fish in the world! We give them 2 fins up for sweetness and 4 fins up for their ability to resist the heat!

Lets just say these fish have stood the test of time and the unforgiving heat wave of 1980. So they are #1 on the list for good reason.

2. Jolly Rancher Crunch and Chews

Jolly Rancher Crunch and Chews - Blue RaspberryJolly Ranchers are so good they make you drool just thinking about them!

What makes them even better is it doesn’t matter what season you’re in, you can fill your pockets up with these gems and forget they were there until you are craving a sweet treat.

Good news is when you dig into your front pocket your fingers will be glad you chose a non ‘melty’ candy to satisfy your taste buds during the hot day.

3.Lollipops

Super Blow Pops AssortedTruly weather-proof, lollipops are a popular favorite for a reason.

Rain, sleet, snow or scorch, a lollipop makes your day sweeter without spontaneously combusting OR melting off the stick, even if it has gum in the middle! Pick a classic favorite like Original Blow Pops for a summer filled with sweet fun.

4.Licorice Laces

Pink Lemonade Licorice LacesWe know what you’re thinking…YUCK! But did you know licorice laces come in flavors like Pink Lemonade and Blue Raspberry?

So, don’t you worry your little anti-licorice heart, our laces are heat resistant and taste bud approved! Strawberry is a top seller but you have to try the Rainbow laces and you can’t forget a bag of TWIZZLERS while you’re at it.

5. Sunkist Fruit Gems

Sunkist Fruit GemsThe other candies were not as specific as this one but we had to add it to the list for their amazing flavors!

Sunkist Fruit Gems are one of those candies you just can’t stop eating, they are THAT good. Not only delicious, they keep their shape and make it to the party without melting through their wrappers.

With flavors like Grapefruit, Lime and Raspberry we think these melt in your mouth and not in your hand candies are a summer staple!

 

Well, there you have it.

Five great candies that won’t be a flop at your next party or event. Keep the ice in the freezer and get out there and have some fun in the sun with these summer friendly faves.

Roman Emperor Claudius II had just outlawed marriage, because he believed that single men made better soldiers than those with families.
