Whether you prefer mint chocolate bars from Dylan’s Candy Bar or Sugarfina’s best-selling rosé bears, here are the top retailers to shop on National Candy Day to satisfy every sweet tooth.
1. Dylan’s Candy Bar
Founded in 2001 by Ralph Lauren’s daughter, Dylan Lauren, Dylan’s Candy Bar is one of the largest candy chains in the world. Dylan’s Candy Bar has over 7,000 confections, with an unparalleled selection of candies and candy-related gifts.
Some bestsellers include the Chocolate Lovers Tackle Box filled with creamy and crunchy bites that are sure to satisfy every chocolate lover’s palette. There’s also the 2-Tiered Candy Cake made with fan-favorite Kit-Kat bars, Air Heads and Fun Dip, but our top recommendation would be the Best of Dylan’s Candy assortment box.
According to the brand, it’s known as the “best pick-me-up,” filled with everything from truffle cups to espresso beans, gummy bears, and sunflower bites, too. Do we even need to say more?
2. See’s Candies
In 1921, chocolate salesman Charles See and his wife Florence set out to open the first See’s Candies shop in sunny Los Angeles, California. Now, 100 years after its opening, it’s one of the most recognized names.
The brand makes over 26 million pounds of candies a year and prides itself on all of its chocolate having a richer, smoother taste than competitors.
Experience all of the chocolatey goodness by building your custom box; you can test beloved flavors like the milk peanut butter crunch or cashew brittle and even score seasonal favorites like the apple pie truffle and pumpkin pie truffle.
Opt for the traditional style or gift this perfect present to your significant other with the heart-shaped choice; either way, both hold up to have chocolates.
Another chocolatier to keep on your radar is Godiva. Founded in 1926, the brand is one of the most notable chocolate labels on the market. Over the 80 years, it’s pleased customers with the most indulgent gourmet chocolates, truffles and holiday gifts.
This National Candy Day, we highly recommend treating your sweet tooth to anything at Godiva, but particularly gear your attention towards the Holiday Luxury Chocolate Advent Calendar or the Season’s Greetings Chocolate Gift Tower.
Both choices offer the most diverse selections of milk, dark and white chocolate with luscious fillings of velvety ganache, smooth praline, creamy caramel, plus fruits and nuts.
4.Harry & David
Harry & David is one of the best gourmet food shops we’ve tested. Founded in 1910, this chocolatier brand features traditional milk, dark and white chocolates, but you will also find a slew of chocolate-covered fruit and nut alternatives.
If you want something chocolatey but need a healthier option, the Chocolate Covered Cherries are splendid. Reviewers say this “tarty sweetness” is unmatched.
But, if cherries aren’t your forte, the Belgian Chocolate-Dipped Fruit offers a more diverse range. You’ll find apples, pears, kiwi, pineapples and cranberries, to name a few.
If neither option aligns with your tastebuds, there’s always white chocolate, and the Pure White Dipped and Drizzle Strawberries are top on our list. This assortment features succulent strawberries that are dipped and drizzled in creamy white confection for an elegant presentation.
5. Sugarfina at Nordstrom
“Nordstrom” and “candy” don’t often belong in the same sentence, but here they are topping our list. Sugarfina (one of the most beloved candy stores) is available at Nordstrom, and they have a handful of perfect picks to celebrate the holiday.
Chocolate-lovers will instantly gravitate toward the set of two chocolate bars. The first of two bars is a full-bodied chocolate block infused with caramel and savory sea salt, while the other is topped with roasted almonds and a sprinkle of sea salt.
Alternatively, take a completely different route with the Sparkling Rosé Gummies. Similar to the brand’s best-selling Champagne Gummies, this version is dipped and infused with rosé for an effervescent, grown-up gummy that’s impossible to beat.
Easy, affordable, and accessible, Walmart is a one-stop shop for finding the sweetest treats this National Candy Day. Go for a classic Twizzler and opt for the five-pound canister; perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up or surviving long nights, the strawberry flavor is the right amount of sugary and sweet.
Naturally, we saved the best for last: Amazon. This National Candy Day, whether you are an Amazon Prime member or shopping for the first time, you’ll notice their range of candies is exceptional.
Start with this Hershey’s, Reese’s and Rolo assortment pack; the bite-sized chocolates range from milk chocolate to dark chocolate to peanut butter-filled and cover all of the bases.
Next, gravitate towards the fan-favorite wintergreen lifesavers; with over 10,000 reviewers singing their praises, it’s hard not to believe that these mints aren’t “the best product,” and the larger-sized bag “will last you forever.”
