Holiday Candy!

Yum! I get to cover the "good" stuff! Of course, there's so much out there I could show you, but I'll limit to a few.

Click on photos to be taken to links!

Have you heard about the Peppermint Pig tradition? 

I'm not sure I could eat this, it's just so pretty! Old fashion ribbon candy:

There's always the good old standby, candy canes:

Have you tried Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark? I have, it's awesome!

When I was a teenager, I was lucky enough to work in a factory called Shelly Bros. one summer vacation. They made the most amazing rock candy pieces. Both free standing and lollipops! The factory was bought out by Brach and is no longer in business but it brings back fond memories. I have never found rock candy made like they made it, in such wonderful shapes but you can still find a few others.

Another thing from my past is Slap Jack candy!! I can still get it today but I do have to travel for it since I moved north and it doesn't seem to make it up over the mountain! LOL! Here is the story regarding Slap Jack:

A newer one that I love are Christmas Dots! These aren't easy to find and are well worth the search! I find them at Walmart if you get there early enough!

What would Christmas be without Pez? Oh yes, I must mention Pez. You have Santa and snowmen:
Elves and reindeer:

And of course, Mrs. Claus:

Do you have a favorite holiday candy? Let us know what it is in the comment section!

We have one more post (dude's Friday post) for this year! I can't believe how fast this year has gone. After that, the crew of ACollectiveJournal will be taking the week off to spend time with our friends and family over the holidays. We'll see you next year!

Wishes to all our followers and readers for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Love Christmas candy! We found the thin ribbon candy at Walmart this year and it is sooooo good! And I remember getting a Pez in my stocking and buying them for my own kids.....

Happy memories, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays!

I always thought ribbon candy was so pretty.

I haven't found the thin ribbon yet, but I'm determined this year. Will follow your link, and hopefully have myself a nice little box this year to enjoy.

What a fun week. I don't want to post tomorrow since RWS did such a nice end of the week post! (just sayin)
