August has been a great month for sky watchers: the yearly Perseids meteor shower showered us with wonder, and a fantastic super moon shone down across all the land. Interestingly enough, this month was also a great one for candy watchers — our warehouse received a whole onslaught of awesome new sweets to admire (and eat), as though sent from the stars above! Check out this Galaxy Pop video for some cool space facts, and then help yourself to a sneak peek into this season’s newest candy collection!
Pixy Stix? Please. You’ve never experienced a candy straw quite like these! Decorated in colorful swirls, Sassy Straws are part designer decor, part candy couture, and 100% perfect party material! Find them in bright blue, peppy pink, and chic black styles!
What’s the only thing better than a rice crispy treat? A GIANT rice crispy treat. Striking just the right balance between gooey, buttery, and crisp, these delicious marshmallow and rice treats come in all sorts of over-sized varieties. The birthday version even comes complete with a pink candle — so long, boring ol’ sponge cake!
And after years of anticipation, guess what’s finally back from Down Under! The Violet Crumble, chocolate-covered honeycomb of wonder, has returned for its American (re)debut. Grab a box or two and taste all that you’ve been missing!

It’s not too early to start talking about fall, right? We know the leaves have yet to start cascading from the trees, and the air hasn’t quite attained that certain crisp chill we often associate with scarf-and-sweater weather. But the perfect autumn candy table needs some careful planning, and if you were looking to celebrate a fall wedding, a thanksgiving party, or just the turning of the seasons, then listen up! We’ve got the candy you need to turn your autumn décor into so much more.
If you’re designing a candy buffet, remember: start out with the basics, like theme-appropriate candy bowls. These sweet ceramic leaf dishes are a fancy way to store all your favorite fall treats. And if woodland creatures are more your style, then go ahead and trust this friendly squirrel to watch over your candy collection!
It’s always a clever decision to stick to season appropriate colors — reds, yellows, and browns reminiscent of falling leaves are certain to do! These M&M’s Harvest Blend chocolates look quite fetching in a fall candy bowl, and foil wrapped Autumn Hershey’s with Almonds will complement them quite nicely.
Speaking of leaves, why not include some of those as well? These hard candy lollipops are shaped like maple leaves, and delicious to boot. Or opt for some of these foiled delicacies — they look like foliage, but taste like delicious dark chocolate!
There’s far more where that came from — check out our other Autumn candies here!
If staging a battle between Hello Kitty and Darth Vader sounds like something that could only occur in a parallel universe, then it’s about time you acquaint yourself with the universe of PEZ ! Unless your bowl of mints can double as an awesome collectible, or your figurine collection has learned how to feed you candy, then nothing quite compares to the wonder of a PEZ head. Best of all? We’ve got plenty! Check out some of our favorites below!
Visit our video section to check out all the PEZ action! They’re the next big thing… and we seriously mean BIG. These Giant PEZ Heads measure over a foot tall, and each holds up to 12 rolls of candy. Watch as Hello Kitty shows off her dance moves, and Darth Vader shows off some heavy breathing skills!
Whether you’re a fan of Disney Princesses or Marvel Superheroes, the music of KISS or the sweet voice of Minnie Mouse, there’s a PEZ collection to suit every fancy.

Back to school? More like back to cool! (Ok, bad joke. Forgive us, our brains have been on break for the summer.) But if your little tykes aren’t quite feeling the back-to-school spirit just yet, then make the transition to early wake-up times and late-night study sessions a little bit sweeter with some of our tasty classroom candies!
Make packed lunches more exciting! Milk is even tastier with Got Milk Magic Straws, which add fun flavor to the nutritious drink. Gummy Brains are known to inspire learning with their nibble-able neurons and sweet cerebellum (plus, at 50% off, they’re half the price and twice the smarts!). And we all know the best way to follow up a hotdog lunch is with its gummy counterpart!
Nothing makes homeroom stink more than sitting next to a classmate with bad breath. Make sure all your little learners are equipped with shareable Mentos Mints, so they can focus on the chalkboard rather than their mouth-breathing seat partner.
And who can start off the new school year without a good word pun? Celebrate all the Smarties and Nerds in your life with candies of the same name!

Sharks: sharp-toothed predators, pirates of the animal kingdom, princes of the sea… and just like us? Seems like it; apparently most shark species respond to a sound known as the “yummy hum,” and we’re going to stop right there because that is exactly our favorite sound as well! The happy mmm noise you hear when someone bites into their favorite candy — this is what we call a yummy hum. Apparently the shark version is an infrasonic sound that injured fish make (which helps them locate an easy meal), but still, all in all it’s the same sort of thing.
Celebrate our yummy-loving brethren of the sea with a fin-tastic smattering of delicious shark candies! And prepare yourself for Shark Week 2014, starting Sunday, August 10th.
Sharks have been known to eat everything from polar bears and horses to microscopic plankton. Show some solidarity and diversify your palate by indulging in an assortment of gummy shark treats! We’ve got colorful Rainbow Sharks, big blue Gummy Killer Sharks, and even grinning Gummy Sharks with Teeth! Or get a little gooey with the Juicy Oozers Sharks. Looks like blood, tastes like cherry — all in all a great combination.
Searching for something a little less chewy? Crunchy candy necklaces come complete with a neat, sweet, shark tooth charm, perfect for fans of the Great White. And just try to refrain from humming the Jaws theme song while you lick one of these big blue dorsal fin lollipops! Use them to make a fruity, cruelty-free version of shark fin soup… or merely scare your little sister in the pool. That one’s your call.
Stock up on Shark Candy just in time for Shark Week, starting August 10th!
We love decorating with candy (hello, candy buffets!), but we will admit there are some limits to what the sweet stuff can do. For instance, while it looks great on tables and in jars, candy can’t fly. But that one weakness no longer need present the downfall to your perfect display! Behold, the solution to all your vertical space-filling needs: the candy-shaped balloon!
Though they look like giant floating lollipops, these colorful candy swirl balloons are actually made of a shiny foil. They’ll add pizazz to any party with their pretty swirls… just don’t let guests try to take a bite. Helium isn’t tasty. (Though if your goal is to wind up talking like a chipmunk or a prepubescent girl, then by all means, help yourself!)
Need to wish someone a happy birthday? You sure can’t go wrong with a birthday balloon, especially when it’s shaped like a lollipop! Or check out this foiled floater, which bears the neat appearance of a gumball machine and sends sweet wishes your way. Oh, did we mention both balloons are over 3.5 feet in length?
M&M’s AirWalkers are an exciting way to experience your favorite candy characters. These cool dudes have weighted feet; fill them with helium and watch them wander.

She’s cute and cuddly, but let’s get right down to it: Hello Kitty has no mouth. They say it’s because she speaks with her heart (and the language of love is universal, of course), but the real issue here is more pressing than that. We must know — how can she eat sweets?!
Well, whether or not we ever learn the answer to that, we’ll show our own thanks for having a mouth by showing you some of the delicious stuff you can put in it. Hello Candy!
If you’re looking for a life-size Hello Kitty, don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to this Giant PEZ head! Standing over a foot in height, she holds 12 PEZ candy cartridges at once — now that’s what we call a cool cat. Or, if you’d like something on the smaller size, this pack of collectible Kitty PEZ figures should do the trick.
Marshmallows are as soft and squishy as we imagine Hello Kitty would be. Better yet, they’re also edible! These luscious lollipops are actually made of fluffy marshmallow goodness and crafted in the cute likeness of Hello Kitty herself. Or try a handful of these Strawberry Marshmallow Puffs! They have Kitty’s stamp of approval (and her picture on the front).
All fans of Hello Kitty need a Hello Kitty fan! And delicious Jelly Belly Jelly Beans are never a bad idea, especially when they’re this adorable.

A combination of the warmest hue (red) and the coolest shade (blue), purple is often believed to be the ideal color. Long used as a symbol of royalty, it is said to represent good judgment and peace of mind. And guess what? It’s also a fantastic color for candy! Gaze upon the mauve-ulous splendor of our lavender candies and prepare to have a plum good time!
Looking for something chewy? Napa Grape Jelly Beans are a perfect purple accompaniment to any candy bowl. And these All-American Gummy Fish will fit in with the other sweets just swimmingly.
With their tender chew and faint grape flavor, these fluffy Lavender Marshmallow Puffy Poles are sure to steal the spotlight. Keep them in good candy company by including Purple Rock Candy Strings and Huckleberry Salt Water Taffy!
Of course your purple party could use some vivacious violet accessories! Let guests take home those pleasantly periwinkle delights in a polka dot treat bag. And peppy purple candy scoops are pretty handy for shoveling the sweets — we can dig it!
Want more purple? We’ve got plenty!
It’s summer! The sun is high in the sky and there’s never been a better time to go for a swim, enjoy a picnic, or hold a bonfire. Better yet, there’s also never been a sweeter time to expand your candy horizons! So go ahead and feast your eyes (and bellies) on some of the newest additions to our Warehouse.
You thought those theater-sized candy boxes from the movies were big? Think again! These awe-inspiring packs of Mike & Ikes, Hot Tamales, and Zours measure a tremendous 15 inches long! That’s over a foot of chewy candy fun, people.
And if all-natural is your thing, we’ve got plenty of sweet, organic options to choose from! Try these pretty pink Starlight Mints when you need a quick breath refresh, or chew on some vegetarian-approved organic peach gummy rings for a desserty good time! As well, GoNaturally’s hard candies come in plenty of exotic flavors to rejuvenate the palate.
Enjoy some color-coordinated candies, perfect for your tasty displays! Plastic, powder filled straws come in all sorts of colors, ready to fit any theme! And assorted Pufflettes Bites and Tropical Gummy Octopuses will augment rainbow-hued revelry quite nicely.
There’s more where that came from, visit our Warehouse today!
Come one, come all, to the great Candy Carnival! Step right up and try your luck with our sweet summer delights! Our Ringmaster recommends the gummy rings, of course, but we’ve got plenty more where that came from. Check out this fine festival selection!
Like any good three ring circus, our Candy Carnival has lots of variety to suit even the most eclectic of tastes! Cotton Candy Pop Rocks offer a whole new palate experience by combining the taste of the sweet fluffy stuff with the tongue-tingling pop of the crackling candy. And these Circus Peanuts are actually chewy and delightful marshmallow — an old-fashioned favorite!
For a real cirque-flair, remember to include some circus animals (though we typically opt for the lollipop variety over real ones… for safety reasons, of course). Feel free to dazzle and amaze your friends with hypnotist-approved Hypno Pops! And don’t forget the popcorn — we personally prefer Cracker Jacks and Jelly Belly’s Butter Popcorn Jelly Beans over anything else.
