Hammond's Candy Canes And Ribbon Candy

Posted by

The signature candy for Christmas is the the candy cane -- the variety of colors the sweet comes in makes it ideal for all sorts of holiday decorating.

Several candy canes and ribbon candy from Hammond's Candies arrived at my office and Martha and I fell in love with them. Hammond's has a large selection of different sized candy canes and there are many flavors to pick from.

These sweets are too perfect to eat -- take a look at these candies!

  • so colorful, and perfect for themed dessert tables - you can get them in any color!!

  • Candy canes and ribbon candy have always been my favorites. Your pictures are great Kevin but none of those candies are too perfect to eat! I would eat them all and right now I'm thinking I need to get my hands on one of those Pomegranate canes!

  • I *love* Hammond's candy canes and always buy them for the kids to leave in their stockings from Santa...however...I thought it would be fair to give a heads up that the picture of you holding the candy is *not* indicative of the actual size of most of their candy! Though they are indeed MUCH larger and more substantial, not to mention, delicious, than regular, standard candy canes...they are not as big as your head. Though a little more expensive than your average candy cane, they are worth every penny!!
