Try our your favorite candies for 4th of July!

Many people love to celebrate the 4th of July with picnics and barbeques with their friends and family, full of savory snacks and grilled hot dogs and burgers. After you’ve enjoyed your favorite savory foods, it can be equally fun to satisfy your sweet tooth with classic sweets and candies in unique summer flavors. At Wockenfuss Candies, we have a variety of candies that are suitable for enjoying throughout the summer. A few of our favorites, listed below, are some of the tastiest candies for 4th of July celebrations with friends and family, young and old. 

Nonpareil and Rock Candy Lollipops

If you or the kids in your family are excited about enjoying delicious candy lollipops as a snack, you can find two excellent options at Wockenfuss. Our milk chocolate nonpareil pop is covered in rainbow candy seeds to give you that classic nonpareil crunch with a burst of color covering the delicious chocolate underneath. If you don’t want a chocolate treat and prefer the fun candy classic that is rock candy sticks, we have a variety of colors and flavors available. These sticks are appealing because of their unique appearance and bright, festive colors. The hard candy will last a while, so one lollipop can go a long way! 

Assorted Salt Water Taffy 

Of course, we also recommend sharing one of our favorite candies for the 4th of July: salt water taffy. This summer treat is beloved by many for its fresh fruit flavors and chewy consistency. Wockenfuss taffy is longer than other taffy—plus the pull on the taffy is incredible! Your friends and family will love selecting their favorite taffy flavors at your 4th of July festivities. 

Coconut Candy Strips

Coconut is one of the most popular summer flavors. If you want to enjoy a bit of refreshing coconut flavor with your 4th of July candies, try our coconut rainbow or coconut watermelon strips. Our rainbow coconut candy strips are brown, white, and pink stripes of color in a delectable rectangular candy; the watermelon strips are colored bright pink and green to create those summer-perfect watermelon colors. 

Licorice Twists and Shoestring Varieties 

Another one of our favorite candies for the 4th of July is licorice. Shoestring licorice and licorice twists, in particular, are easy to enjoy and share with others. Kids might especially appreciate the colorful and fun shoestring licorice, available in bright red strawberry and rainbow varieties. Licorice twists are available in classic red strawberry and brown chocolate varieties. These candies won’t melt on this hot summer day and can be a refreshing snack to indulge in after a heavier meal during the day.
