Classic sweets like fruit slices, sour candies, and salt water taffy can all suit your Memorial Day festivities. Visit your local Wockenfuss Candies to select your favorite packages of sweet and sour candy ideal for summer. 

Sweet Fruit Slices 

One of the best ways to add some sugar to your Memorial Day Picnic is to provide a sweet spin on classic fruit favorites. All your guests will get a kick out of our sugary fruit slices, available in an eye-catching variety pack. The fruit slices come in fresh summer flavors, including lemon, lime, watermelon, and cherry. 

You can also provide your guests delicious orange slices, a gumdrop-style soft and chewy candy bursting with orange flavor. These little candies pack a lot of flavor into a bite-sized treat that is especially enjoyable after indulging in a savory Memorial Day picnic.

Summer-Ready Salt Water Taffy 

Memorial Day rings in the unofficial start of summer, which means it’s time to indulge in salt water taffy! This seasonal treat is a beloved favorite for all generations. The soft, chewy taffy won’t melt like chocolate, making it ideal for sharing out under the sun, whether at your Memorial Day picnic or a visit to the beach. The flavor varieties are fantastic, including fruity flavors like cherry, lemon, lime, and orange, and unique options like coconut, peanut butter, banana, and wintergreen. 

Sour Peaches and Watermelon 

Add Sour Peaches or Sour Watermelon to your picnic table for another fun twist on summer fruit. Bite-sized Sour Peaches are bursting with flavor and the tartness of the sour coating. Sour Watermelons are designed to look like adorable pink and green miniature watermelon slices and are coated with a tart sour flavor. Kids will especially delight in these appealing tart treats that fit in with the summer décor.
