Wax Lips are Tops on Halloween Candy List

Hesperia, CA., Oct 5, 2010 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 40 million children will venture out into the Autumn night and go trick-or-treating this year. The origin of Halloween goes back to when Celtic groups in areas now known as Ireland, Scotland and Wales celebrated their New Year's Day on November 1st, know then as “All Saints' Day”. The day before this celebration, October 31st, was called "All Hallows' Eve" and signaled the close of the harvest season.

October 30th, is National Candy Corn Day and Candy Corn is not just for Halloween anymore. Candy makers now produce Reindeer Corn for Christmas, Cupid Corn for Valentine’s Day and on Easter – plastic eggs full of Bunny Corn. As popular as this candy is (more than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year), it barely makes the top ten traditional Halloween candy favorites. Kids tell us that their favorite treats to receive when trick-or-treating are candy and gum. Eighty-four percent of kids said candy and gum are their favorites The Top Ten Traditional Halloween Candy includes:

1) Lollipops 2) Tootsie Rolls/Pops 3) Smarties 4) Bubble Gum 5) “Fun Size” Chocolates (with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups the favorite) 6) Pixy Stix 7) Sweetarts 8) Starburst 9) Caramel Candy 10) Candy Corn

In recent years, retro candy has been gaining in popularity among candy connoisseurs. CandyCrate.com specializes in hard to find retro candy and has come out with a list of the Top Ten candies their customers order for Halloween. The favorites include a mix of candy classics & contemporary candy.

1) Wax Lips/Fangs 2) Candy Necklaces 3) Chocolate or Gummy Body Parts 4) Cry Babies Sour Gum 5) Pop Rocks Pumpkin Patch Orange 6) Caramel Apple Pops 7) Candy Eyeballs 8) Zotz Fizz Candy 9) Harry Potter Droobles Best Blowing Cotton Candy Bubble Gum 10) Peanut Butter Kisses

According to Candy Crate’s Operation Manager, Randi Caporale, mellowcremes (candy corn & pumpkins) remain very popular but are usually purchased in bulk to fill candy dishes.

The National Confectioners Association states that the parents favorite treats to sneak from their children’s trick-or-treat sacks are snack-size chocolate bars (70 percent sneak these), candy-coated chocolate pieces (40 percent), caramels (37 percent) and gum (26 percent).

You guys are awesome. This is the second time in a year that I have placed an order with you. I use the gummi pizzas as hand outs for the children across the counter at my pizzas business.

I was worried about the condition the candies would come in, since they are very fragile. Candy Crate did an excellent job making sure they were protected from rough travel. Thanks!

It arrived as a gift to a friend earlier than I thought which was GREAT, especially since it went to Hawaii. My brother-in-law loved it - not only the novelty of it, but the candy was really good too.

Great product! My dad loved his gift of retro candy! Will definitely buy from them again!
Excellent... I pleased with how quickly my order was shipped & how cheap your products were compaired to other websites. Thank You for everything.
Dear Candy Crate, I recently ordered from you and just wanted you to know how delighted I was not only with the candy and it's freshness but also the SHIPPING! I am in Texas and it is hot here. I did order the 2 day faster shipping with the ice pack - and the candy arrived in tip-top shape - fresh and crisp in each box upon arrival. The candy was a BIG hit - something the recipient had not seen since childhood - she was delighted !!!!
