Halloween is a huge sweetie festival with its popularity growing year on year and is a major player in the confectionery calendar. With the tradition of ‘Trick or Treat’ well ingrained into British culture, millions of households have a stock of creepy, scary sweets ready to hand out. With this year experiencing the most unusual of circumstances in our society, Halloween events for 2020 are likely to be celebrated in a very different way but nevertheless, spooky sweets and confectionery will be at the heart of them. Make sure you don’t miss out on some of the popular Halloween goodies such as Vidal Psychedelic Mice , Hannah’s Brain Licker or Haribo Yellow Bellies and no Halloween display should be without a stock of Dracula Teeth!
Bonfire Night follows hot on the heels of Halloween and although again it is likely to be celebrated in a very different way this year, there is always the perfect sweet to go with the spangly bonfire Sparklers such as Barratt Catherine Wheels and Vidal Strawberry Rocketz or some Haribo Cola Bottles and Shoebury Toffee Honeycomb.
And so to the biggest confectionery season of all - Christmas. Popular, top selling brands to stock up on your shelves include Beech’s Luxury Dark Chocolate Brazils and Crystallised Ginger, Jelly Belly Gift Boxes, Walkers Duo Hammer Toffee Slab and definitely a favourite for the child milk chocolate Gold coins.
