Dollar Store Candy

One very popular type of confection is "gummi" candy. Chewy, translucent, and available in a wide variety of colors and flavors, gummi treats have been around since the 1920s. The most common form of this confection is the gummi bear, which can be found in flavors like fruit and cinnamon. Wholesale gummi treats are also available in shapes like worms, drops, fruit slices, and even bugs.

One of the most popular candies for Halloween is candy corn. Created by George Renninger in the 1880s, it was originally made and distributed by the Wunderlee Candy Company. The triangle-shaped confection features three colors (white, yellow, and orange) and tastes of honey. Even though it is considered a Halloween treat, true aficionados eat it all year long.

Dollar stores can encourage shoppers to purchase discount candy not only by creating a section devoted to candy and snacks, but also by placing it by the checkout counters.

While dollar stores were once thought to be the province of lower-income individuals, these outlets now appeal to people in all income brackets who enjoy discount prices on items like candy.

One popular dollar-store confection is cotton candy, once known as fairy floss. This sweet is made of spun sugar and was first invented in the late 1800s. While there is some controversy over who first created it, it has been a perennial favorite at fairs, circuses, and theme parks. Dollar-store cotton candy is available bagged and ready to go in pastel colors like blue and pink. Customers can buy this in bulk for events like school bazaars, circus-themed birthday parties and more.

Other dollar-store bulk candies include items like taffy, root beer barrels, and gummi candy in the shape of bears, worms, and fruit slices. Additional well-liked confections include cinnamon candies, lemon drops, Tootsie Rolls, lollipops, wax bottles, licorice, mints, and hard candies like butterscotch disks.

Don't forget gum--bubble gum and gum balls are enjoyed by people of all ages.

Dollar stores can encourage shoppers to purchase discount candy not only by creating a section devoted to candy and snacks, but also by placing it by the checkout counters.


Wholesale Candy for Every Occasion

There are many occasions for which customers buy wholesale candy:

  • Halloween: this is the most prominent holiday of the year when it comes to wholesale candy. Approximately 96 percent of Americans will purchase Halloween treats, including candy corn, gummi snacks, caramels, mini chocolate bars and more.
  • Valentine's Day: sweets are a classic gift during this holiday. Popular choices include chocolates, conversation hearts, heart-shaped lollipops and chocolate-covered cherries.
  • Easter: the "Easter Bunny" brings gifts of sweet treats to millions of girls and boys on this day. In fact, the National Retail Federation estimates that the average American will spend more than $14 on Easter confections like jelly beans, chocolate Easter bunnies, and caramel eggs.
  • All year long: with more people adding media rooms to their residences, they're watching more movies at home. While they may not miss the traditional movie-theater prices, they may miss the traditional concessions.
