The Most Popular Summer Candies

Summer CandiesSummer is filled with the things children love most: vacation and candy. Yum! No school…and CANDY! That’s what we like to call a win-win. What more could a child want? There is nothing quite like lounging by the pool or on the beach and eating some delicious salt water taffy. Is anyone else’s mouth watering?

Well, we got to thinking; besides salt water taffy, what other candies do kids crave? After a little research, we got our answer. According to a survey of over 2,100 people, the Most Popular Summer Candies are…

  1. Salt water taffy: Of course salt water taffy is No. 1 on the list. Did you have any doubts? It is the quintessential summer candy! Salt water taffy just reminds you of the beach.
  2. Gummi bears: They are fun to eat. They are delicious. And they are No.2 on our list of popular summer candies. Gummi bears are the perfect candy for pretty much any occasion, whether you are watching a movie, hanging out on the beach, or just playing video games at home.
  3. Jelly fruit slices: Fruit slices are sugar-coated, soft and chewy “gum drop” type candies. These yummy jelly candies are as delicious as they look!
  4. Tootsie Rolls: If you love chocolate and don’t want to deal with the mess (let’s face it; chocolate and summer do not mix), then Tootsie Rolls may be the candy for you!
  5. Sour Patch Kids: First they are sour; then they’re sweet! And guess what? They are always delicious!
