Boyer Candy Factory Tour Video

mallo.jpgWe came across a video tour of the Boyer Candy factory. It is from a couple years ago, from a PA-based cable channel. But not much has changed - Boyer Candy makes the famous Mallo Cup, and also make their own version of a peanut-butter cup called the Smoothie. Lastly you'll see the creation of their chocolate and peanut-butter covered pretzels (although that's not too exciting).

Check it out at PCN

Nestle Crunch Medallion for Christmas
These speak for themselves. But we like any solid candy bar, which Nestle Crunch is, that's reshaped to add a new interesting dimension, even if its short lived. And if you happen to get an air hockey table for Christmas, you can use these for pucks.

Bob's Mini Candy Canes

2008-12-08_0629_1.png
Bob's Mini Canes
Full disclosure, my name is Bob. So I have a special soft spot for this particular brand of candy canes. Bob's is one of the world's largest peppermint cane producers, and was a family owned company through the 20th Century. Bob's is now a fine product of Farley & Sather.

Aside from the name, candy canes are as much a part of Christmas as Santa Claus, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Christmas Trees. Small candy canes are a great option, the perfect size for a quick, pepperminty treat.
