Because we all have a sweet tooth …

January 7, 2015

Throughout the decades, candy has played a prominent role in the food and beverage industry. In the 1960’s, Sugar Daddy, Boston Baked Beans, and Bazooka bubble gum were among the most popular (and of course who can forget the comics on the wrappers of Bazooka. As the years continued, and technology advanced, the candy industry took off like a rocket.  Jelly Bellys were the go to movie snack in the 70’s while they were enjoying first Star Wars movie. Or, you may have been chewing away on your favorite flavor of Bubble Yum like John Travolta’s character in Grease. The 1980’s brought a decade long fixation with Skittles and ‘Tasting the Rainbow,’ as well as introducing the newest flavor profiles with Sour Patch Kids gummy candies- proving that candy doesn’t have to just be sweet, they can be sour as well! The new trend of sour candies continued on into the 90’s with the increasing popularity of Sour Patch Kids, Warheads and Sweet Tarts. Rolling into the new millennium, candy lovers are craving salty and savory candies like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Peanut M&Ms. With flavor preferences continuing to change, Tropical Foods has a candy that will satisfy any candy craving that your customers desire.
