Twas the day before ...

Chocolate Covered Christmas Pretzels
- Lactose & Casein Free

Twas the day before Christmas, the biggest gifting time of the year thanks to Hanukkah and Christmas. Whether you are Jewish, Christian, Muslim or an Atheist we all love the extended shopping hours the season offers, the big sales at the chain stores, spending time with our family and friends. As I sit here trying to come up with an interesting and relevant blog the following occurred to me, five (5) distinct things happened around the store this past month or so.

Here is the the Life of the Candy Man's Top Five of the Holiday Season; not in any particular order:

This Chocolate Light is life-sized
-5- Helping several new corporate clients brand themselves in chocolates from chocolate shoes to chocolate light bulbs just to name a few.  Seeing their face or hearing the smile through the phone or through an email makes the long hours worth while.

-4- Our newest customer a six year old little boy who happened to have a Jewish teacher. During Hanukkah the teacher brought in Hanukkah Gelt or "chocolate coins" to his class. The little boy is allergic to Casein and this was his first experience with chocolate. The teacher told the mom about our store and a family outing took place. The look on his face when he saw all the Lactose Free, Casein Free, and Pareve choices he had was priceless.

-3- Meeting the Governor of Illinois. (look for a blog next week)

Semi Sweet Coffee Toffee Bark. Our
newest bark. We take our own hand
made toffee and mix it with freshly
gound coffee to create this mouth
watering confection.

-2- A few new confections.  From Lactose free Casein Free Christmas Pretzels to our new Coffee Toffee Bark.

-1- During Hanukkah a family came to the store. The parent's present to each the kids was that each one could get a few of anything in the store. There were four kids ranging in age from about 2 - 10 or so. The older three got a combination of count items, jaw breaker and pucker powder. Then this little girl walks over to a Yum Yum bag and proceeds to pick up this four and half pound bag of candy. The parents had quite a time convincing the little girl that this was not an option. She eventually got what her big sister got.

The Life of the Candy Man is a sweet one.

Yum Yum Bag makes a great gift for any
occasion. Includes ju ju fish, laffy taffy,
candy corn, cherry sours, & red bites; or
customize your own.

Happy Holidays to all and if you don't or celebrate any of the holidays this past month I hope you enjoyed the extra time off of work, the sweet treats around the office and the sales.

Have a sweet weekend!
