Posted by

The holiday season is finally here! It’s time to deck the halls, decorate the tree, sing some Christmas carols and enjoy some candy! Most people indulge a little, or a lot, more than they normally would around the holidays. Weaver Nut Sweets & Snacks is here to help satisfy your sweet tooth and take care of your cravings! We’ve compiled a list of some of our best-selling candies during the holiday season to help you find a new favorite or give the gift of your most loved sweet treat to a friend or family member. How many of your favorites made this list? What new candy are you wanting to try? Let’s take a look!

Peppermint Sticks – When you think of a candy that represents Christmas, what do you think of? Many of you might be thinking of a peppermint stick! Perhaps the candy that has the strongest ties to Christmas, the peppermint stick is an age-old classic that everyone loves. The iconic red and white striped candy is a great candy to eat, and decorate with! While the traditional peppermint is the most popular, there are a number of flavors out there if peppermint isn’t your thing. Maybe you’re more of a blueberry person. Or maybe you’re thinking outside the box and might be more into cherry cola. With all of the different flavors, it might take you until next Christmas to try them all. Anyone up for the challenge?

Jelly Beans – From one classic to another, jelly beans are another great candy that you can share with everyone to spread some holiday cheer. While they’re usually associated with Easter, jelly beans are also a candy that people turn to during Christmas. Maybe you want to create a theme, so you’re looking for only jelly beans that are red. Well you’ve got cherry, cinnamon and pomegranate to name a few. Of course you could never go wrong with a variety pack to get a little bit of everything. Whatever your needs are when it comes to jelly beans, Weaver Nut Sweets & Snacks has got you covered.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels – The combination of a salty, crunchy pretzel and delicious smooth chocolate is a holiday favorite that can’t be ignored. Whether you like milk chocolate or dark chocolate, you can be sure Weaver Nut Sweets & Snacks will have plenty to go around this holiday season. Chocolate covered pretzels make a great gift or a nice treat for yourself. Which is your favorite?

Asher’s Gourmet Candy – One of the great brands we work with is Asher’s Chocolate Company. They have a variety of gourmet candy that is sure to please the palate of just about anyone. Some of our favorite products from Asher’s are their chocolate fudge, their classic nonpareils and their surprisingly good chocolate covered potato chips. Asher’s Chocolate Company makes a bunch of great products that are quickly becoming fan favorites during the holiday season.

Swedish Fish – You probably didn’t see this one coming! Who would have thought that Swedish Fish would have been a candy you would think of at Christmas? Maybe it is their bright red that gets people to think of them during the holidays. Swedish Fish are a classic candy that many people can relate to and have fond memories of eating them as a child, or as an adult! Weaver Nut Sweets & Snacks also has Mini Swedish Fish if you were looking for those!
