“KITCHEN GOURMET” – Hammond’s Candies Expands Its Popular Chocolate Bar Offerings

Mar 09, 2018
Long known for its unique twists on old-fashioned treats, Hammond’s Brands is excited to answer growing customer demand with an expansion of its popular chocolate bar offerings. The parent company of Hammond’s Candies, Old Dominion Peanut Company, McCraw’s Candies, and Mellow Fluffs has now introduced a line of uniquely flavored vertical tablet bars, which is larger than Hammond’s already-existing chocolate bars.

The new line features 3-ounce Belgian chocolate bars in 12 per display-ready cases, and includes new brand flavors Dark Salted Almond, Milk Toffee Pretzel, and Dark Sea Salt, as well as two existing customer favorites, S’mores and Pigs n’ Taters.

“We’re excited to give customers a new palate-pleasing experience while continuing our commitment to using the highest quality ingredients available,” said Andrew Schuman, Hammond’s President and CEO. “There’s obviously customer demand for this age-old sweet, but at Hammond’s, we don’t think that means it has to be old fashioned!”

The popular confectioner’s recently expanded Pantry Candy line now features 4-ounce bags of flavorful, old-fashioned hard candies:

• Lemon Drops that perfectly capture the citrus bite of a freshly picked lemon.

• Sour Balls that leave the bravest snacker’s lips puckered.

• Root Beer Barrels that bring back memories of a visit to the drive-in.

• Cinnamon Drops that give snackers an excuse to enjoy this seasonal flavor year-round.

* Licorice Drops that encapsulate the piquant taste of anise.

And that’s not all. Hammonds, America’s favorite homemade confectioner, is also giving candy lovers another reason to celebrate as it unveils the new look of www.HammondsCandies.com. “Our tried-and-true recipes and quality ingredients haven’t changed since we made our first batch of candy nearly 100 years ago — now, we don’t have to say the same about our website!” said Andrew Schuman. “The new HammondsCandies.com makes it easy to browse our virtual candy shop shelves, or to search for a treat that matches an exact craving, all from the comfort of shoppers’ own homes or mobile phones!”

Hammond’s Candies began delighting candy lovers with artisan candy canes, beautifully spun ribbon candy, and larger-than-life lollipops when it was founded by the Hammond family back in 1920, making it Colorado’s favorite handmade confectioner for decades. In 2007, the company became the Hammond’s that it is today through its acquisition by current President and CEO Andrew Schuman, growing from a much-loved, local candy company to a leading gourmet sweet provider with national regard.

Since then, Hammond’s has gone on to acquire such companies as McCraw’s Candies in 2010 and Old Dominion Peanut Company in 2012 as well as to gain impressive recognitions for their brand packaging and product innovation.

As a leader in the confectionary industry, what is clear is that with Hammond’s Candies y will satisfy your sweet tooth with handmade lollipops, chocolate bars, taffy and more. For more information on Hammond’s Candies please visit www.hammondscandies.com.
