Gourmet Candy

Great Gifts for your Candy Girl or Candy Guy

Candy comes in so many different packages and brings such simple joy. For example, do you remember Bottle Caps, Pez dispensers and rock candy? These are just a few of the kinds of candies you can send as a gourmet gift to someone you love.

Far from being hazardous to your health, candy's high calories are beneficial for those burning lots of energy. Some candies contain nuts and other nutritional products with benefits all their own. Of course, experts do advise to eat candy sparingly.

On the Internet, you can find just about any candy you might want. There are many places to find retro candy. Besides the ones already mentioned, you can find pop rocks, jujubes, candy cigarettes, pixie sticks and many more. These might all be part of a gourmet gift basket.

For the true gourmet, there are gourmet fudges, salt water taffy and unique gourmet candy such as toffees. You can also find unique items such as candy bouquets, a kind of gift basket with candies arranged much like a flower bouquet. You can customize tins, boxes and gift baskets of candy.

Some other suggestions: How about gourmet candy apples? Ever tried chocolate cherries or chocolate coffee beans? There are also several uniquely American gourmet candies, such as almond toffee and peanut brittle.

Sugar-free gourmet candy makes a thoughtful gift for the diet-conscious or diabetic candy lover on your list.

Occasions for giving candy as a gift might include the birth of a baby, a bar mitzvah, birthday, any patriotic or religious holiday, a reunion, graduation or business promotion. Of course, candy is nice for traditional gift occasions like weddings, anniversaries and Christmas.
