Salt water taffy are some of the best candies to enjoy during the summer heat.

If your family loves to spend time outdoors in the summer, but you also love to indulge in candy snacks while enjoying your activities, Wockenfuss Candies has the treats you need. The best candies to enjoy in the summer won’t melt in your hand, and will be supremely delightful and refreshing. We recommend bringing a selection of our licorice, hard candies, salt water taffy, and gummi candies to your next day at the beach, poolside, or park. 

Licorice Candies

Licorice is a classic treat that is easy to carry and share with your family or friends. If you prefer sweet flavors, our chocolate or strawberry twists or strawberry or rainbow shoestring licorice strands may be best. If you like the classic licorice flavors, you may enjoy the licorice cream rock candies, Australian-style licorice, or the variety packs of English and American-style licorice candies.

Hard Candies

Hard candies are some of the best candies to enjoy in the summer because they won’t melt before you can enjoy them! Hard candies are ideal for those who like to savor their sweet treats. At Wockenfuss Candies, you can find hard candy packs from Hermann The German. The Bavarian fruit assortment, orange and lemon pack, ginger orange candies, and honey bees are all sweet, slightly tart candy with a sanded texture ideal for hard candies. A little goes a long way with these, so you’ll have plenty of candies on hand to enjoy this season. 

Salt Water Taffy 

What is a hot summer day without salt water taffy? This summer classic is a favorite of ours at Wockenfuss Candies. This is why, besides classic variety packs of salt water taffy, you can also find peanut butter kisses and creamy mint sticks at your local Wockenfuss Candies. 

Peanut butter kisses are a summer exclusive – vanilla taffy wrapped around a creamy peanut butter center for an extra-sweet indulgence. Creamy mint sticks are for those who enjoy a refreshing burst of mint in their sweets. Every piece of taffy is individually wrapped, so you can open up a box and share it with your loved ones at your next summer family get-together. 

Gummi Candies

Gummi candies can be incredibly refreshing when enjoying summer activities. Kids especially love these sweets, which come in fun shapes and colors. Our bears, butterflies, and worms are multi-colored treats, while red fish and blue raspberry dolphins are all about one flavor and fun, aquatic-themed shapes. 

If you prefer sour candies, our sour gummis include everything from sour belts to mini sour watermelons. Packing a small bag of gummi candies for a day at the beach or for an afternoon picnic is a great way to include sweetness in your day without worrying about melting chocolates or ice cream snacks.
