Happy Easter with Peeps & Company

Easter is just around the corner! Do you have everything you need to make the perfect Easter baskets?  PEEPS & COMPANY® are here to help!

We may be falling in fun fall festivities, but I still have to stay on task when it comes to keeping my family fed.  After the first couple of months of school, those same old breakfasts and snacks start to get old, and finding new food choices our boy loves can be a challenge.  Luckily Kellogg’s is here to save the day.

With so many great products like Pop Tarts, Nutri-Grain bars, Eggo waffles, Rice Krispies Treats, Kellogg’s has so much to offer for breakfast and snack time.  And of course, Kellogg’s also offers an amazing assortment of cereals, including Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, Frosted Mini Wheats, Rice Krispies, Corn Pops, Apple Jacks, and Krave.

Summer Fun with Juicy Fruit
When I was growing up, my favorite chewing gum was Wrigley’s!  I’ve always loved all their varieties, including Doublemint®  and Spearmint® , but when I was very little I always LOVED Juicy Fruit® .  Since I was kid, the brand has grown to include other products.  Apart from the sticks of gum I loved as a kid, you can now get Juicy Fruit® Fruity Chews and Juicy Fruit® Bubble Gum.

Chocolate Footballs and Other Nostalgic Candies

I know this will completely shock everyone, but I’ve got a real sweet tooth and love candy!  I often think about candies I used to eat when I was a kid, which either aren’t available any more or else are very hard to find.  This includes chocolate footballs, Sixlets, candy cigarettes, chocolate coins, Chick-o-sticks, and Zotz, just a name a few.

In fact, every time I go to a little grocery store or gas station, I always look to see if I can find any of these, especially the chocolate footballs.  Shortly after I met my husband, we stopped in at a gas station to get drinks, on our way to eat dinner and hang out with friends, when suddenly I found this box of chocolate footballs.  It was the first time I’d seen them in years, and I freaked out with excitement.  This was fairly early in our relationship, and he could not believe I’d get this excited over candy.  I immediately grabbed a couple of handfuls and asked him to get them for me.

I haven’t found the chocolate footballs since then, so I was thrilled when I found them over at Blair Candy.  This site has a fabulous selection of bulk candy as well as regular size containers of candy.  Their stock includes popular favorites like Reese Cups and Snickers, as well as novelty candies like gummy hamburgers and candies in fun containers, and nostaglic candy like my chocolate footballs, Coconut Long Boys, Boston Baked Beans, and even wax lips!

Go over and visit Blair Candy and place your orders for Halloween.  And don’t forget to enter the code: GHOST at check out to get 10% off your order.
