Washburn’s Hard Candy

  • A Well-Kept Tradition

  • $$$$$
  • Old-Fashioned, Traditional, Cheap

Continue to honor holiday memories of years past by giving those you love traditional Washburn’s hard candy. The company has sold these colorfully assorted candies since 1856.

The classic retro candies vary with fruity shapes and flavors to please all kinds of tastes. Start a new tradition or revisit the old by sharing these popular sweets for Christmas.

User Experience

If you're seeking a nostalgic taste of hard candy, these are as delightful as the old-fashioned classics. While their packaging is a paper container rather than a tin, the candy inside is preserved in a large plastic seal, resulting in a few pieces sticking together due to a lack of individual wrapping. Despite some flavors sticking out more than others and a bit of a struggle with candies clumping together, the unique blend of fruit and mild mint flavors makes it worth the slight inconvenience.

Santa’s Hat Hershey’s Kisses

  • Sweet Santas

  • $$$$$
  • Holiday, Traditional, Chocolate

These Hershey’s Kisses can deliver Santa’s jolly generosity in one bite. The five-pound bulk pack of holiday chocolates can be distributed as part of a gift or as an easy stocking stuffer.

The individually-wrapped Kisses are playfully decorated with Santa hat designs. Upon further inspection, they’ll find it’s just the Grinch after he’s found his Christmas spirit.

Personal Perspective

My experience with these chocolate kisses was far from perfect, despite my initial fondness for their traditional counterparts. The taste of these kisses was a stark disappointment, lacking the usual rich, smooth, and creamy chocolate flavor I've come to expect. Instead, they left an unpleasant, greasy residue in my mouth, making me question their authenticity and quality. Unfortunately, despite their accurate mimicry of the iconic Kiss shape, these chocolates fell disappointingly short in delivering the true Hershey's experience.

Santa After-Dinner Mints

  • Santa Can Refresh

  • $$$$$
  • Holiday, Traditional, Set, Old-Fashioned

Delight guests this Christmas by giving them Santa after-dinner butter mints to go along with their other gifts. The old-fashioned habit of offering wrapped buttermints after a meal goes back a long time. The massive pack of mints can be distributed as you like, while the pieces look like unique parts of Santa’s iconic costume.

Community Feedback

I'm pleased with these candies for their delightful taste and versatile design, perfect for jazzing up my Christmas baskets. However, I noticed a minor issue with some candies not being properly sealed, resulting in a few loose pieces in the bag. While the peppermint flavor isn't too overwhelming, some may find it a tad strong for their liking. Despite the minor packaging hiccup and the seemingly high price for the quantity, these mints are a cute and tasty addition to any festive occasion.

Peanut Brittle Gift Box

  • The Best Crunch

  • $$$$$
  • Old-Fashioned, Traditional, Gourmet

“I really don’t like peanut brittle” is something no one has ever said, whether it’s Christmas or not. This beautifully wrapped red gift box is the perfect way to offer someone these handmade treats. The brittle gift box is ideal for co-workers, friends, and students alike. It’s not likely to last long, so give it to them early in the season!

First-Hand Impression

Bought this peanut brittle with expectations of a traditional snack, but was pleasantly surprised by the unique taste, brought about by the small bits of cashews and a hint of smoky flavor. The packaging was in a cute gold box, half-full with the brittle in a plastic sack inside, and while the thickness and taste may not appeal to everyone, I found it delicious and it didn't last long in my house.

Nestle Quality Street Chocolates

No products found.

Check Price
  • The Best Of Britain

  • $$$$$
  • Chocolate, International, Set

You can impress lucky people with very British Nestle chocolates, but this Quality Street tin of chocolates promises more. The famous collection is known worldwide for its fun and colorful crackling wrappers. Inside, they’ll find milk chocolates with a variety of fillings that can make Christmas even sweeter.

Ghirardelli Hot Cocoa Candy Cane Spoons

  • Packed With Peppermint

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty, Chocolate, Holiday, Set

These Ghirardelli candy cane spoons allow hot cocoa to graduate to a whole new treat when given as Christmas gifts. The set is a bundle of 12 packs of hot cocoa mix, along with 12 candy cane spoons that melt deliciously inside. The fun ritual of hot cocoa and candy canes at Christmas just got better.

Personal Perspective

Definitely, this hot chocolate and spoon set left a bit of a mixed impression. The individual spoons, while a challenge to separate due to the tough packaging, were a hit with the kids at school. Unfortunately, not all spoons survived the journey, but those that did were quite a delight paired with the Ghiradelli hot chocolate. The packaging, though, lacked a certain aesthetic appeal, looking more like a cardboard box than a thoughtful gift. In the end, the joy it brought and the time it saved made up for the steep price and less than stellar packaging.

Reese's Peanut Butter Santas

  • Peanut Butter Stocking Stuffer

  • $$$$$
  • Holiday, Chocolate, Traditional

The only thing better than a visit from Santa Claus on Christmas is one from a peanut butter Santa. This five-pound pack of Reese’s peanut butter Santas keeps the cute tradition of foil-wrapped chocolates alive. They make brilliant stocking stuffers for multiple people or can be the best holiday candy haul for one lucky person.

Community Feedback

I've had the opportunity to use these candies for a Nutcracker-themed Christmas in July event, and their shiny wrappers added a beautiful touch to my antique dishes. I noticed that they didn't quite taste like the typical Reese's, with the peanut butter not being as sweet and the chocolate shell being thinner and a bit messy. Despite their flaws, they served their purpose well as a treat for my family and friends, although they didn't quite hit the mark for a perfect peanut butter cup.

Ferrero Rocher Gift Box

  • A Haven Of Hazelnut

  • $$$$$
  • Chocolate, International, Gourmet, Set

Ferrero Rocher might be the official chocolates of Christmas. This set includes 24 individually-wrapped chocolate and coconut candies. The crunchy wafer and creamy hazelnut filling are unmistakable and can add to any holiday gift basket you give. They’re a small, gourmet treat to enjoy throughout the season.

First-Hand Impression

I've been buying these chocolates for quite a while now and I must say, they're absolutely divine. Each piece has a delightful crunchy outer layer, a smooth, creamy hazelnut filling, and a whole hazelnut inside, making every bite a dream. However, I've noticed that in warmer weather, they tend to melt a bit, altering the coconut flavor, which could be a drawback for some. Despite this issue, these chocolates remain a favorite in our household and we've never stopped enjoying them.

Jelly Belly Christmas Gift Box

  • A Satisfied Belly

  • $$$$$
  • Holiday, Cheap, Set

Break out the holiday flavors for friends and family this Christmas with a Jelly Belly Christmas gift box. Though inexpensive, the jelly beans are much more than a cheap stocking stuffer. The flavors include candy cane, coconut, and green apple. The unique approach to holiday flavors makes this gift box one of the most creative little Christmas candy gifts.

User Experience

This candy fit perfectly in our holiday stockings, much to my delight. However, I must admit, they were a bit hard and seemed to have an outdated taste. Regardless, they were a big hit with the children who seemed to enjoy them thoroughly. Despite the somewhat stale taste, their appeal to the kids made them worthwhile.

Giant Candy Cane

  • A Cane To Remember

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty, Traditional, Holiday

Make sure you give a very special person this gigantic candy as a gift this Christmas. The novelty candy cane is worth more than a whole candy box full of traditional peppermint treats. This imposing candy cane celebrates the holidays with humor and deliciousness. Hopefully, one will last the whole season long.

Personal Perspective

This candy cane is an absolute delight to the taste buds - truly a pleasure to eat. It's much more enjoyable when broken into pieces, adding a yummy twist to my hot tea or simply as a sweet snack. The exterior isn't as smooth as I had hoped, but it doesn't take away from the overall appeal. Even though it arrived with some damage, it still served its purpose for Elf Magic, and my six-year-old was thrilled.

Gummy Bear Gift Jar

  • Holiday Bears

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty, Unique, Holiday

This adorable gummy bear gift jar is the perfect amount of festiveness both adults and kids can enjoy. The gummy-bear-shaped glass jar holds a one-pound variety of gummy bears, like cherry, green apple, strawberry, and banana. The festivity may never stop as long as there’s a gummy left in the jar.

Community Feedback

This gummy bear gift jar is a delightful treat! The gummy bears are larger than typical ones, and they come packed in a charming bear-shaped jar with a pretty bow. They offer a plethora of 12 fruity flavors that are perfectly balanced - sweet, but not overly so. Unlike regular grocery store gummy bears, these have a richer taste and are free from peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, MSG, gluten, and they're also fat-free with no artificial sweeteners. The only downside is that for some, the size of the jar might not justify the price, but the quality and taste of these gummy bears truly set them apart.

Gourmet Popcorn Tin

  • Pop Goes The Holidays

  • $$$$$
  • Traditional, Old-Fashioned, Set

Gourmet popcorn tins are one of the most treasured Christmas snack traditions around. This popcorn tin offers a mouth-watering variety of sweet and savory popcorn, including caramel, cheddar cheese, and kettle corn. When arriving at a host’s house, the tin makes a thoughtful gift to thank them for their holiday hospitality.

First-Hand Impression

I've enjoyed munching on this popcorn on multiple occasions, its fresh and tasty flavor seldom fails to satisfy. However, I was slightly disappointed to find the tin not filled to the top and the presence of unpopped kernels, but the tin itself makes a handy storage container.

Holiday Jordan Almonds

  • The Sweetest Nut To Crack

  • $$$$$
  • Holiday, Gourmet, Traditional

These fancy holiday Jordan almonds can bring a smile to almost anyone’s face this Christmas. The two-pound pack has the famously flavorful almonds with a hard outer shell in red, white, and green. They make elegant additions to any Christmas stocking or guest’s goody bag and can keep the Christmas fun going.

User Experience

Best I've experienced, these Jordan almonds were an absolute party highlight. On the upside, the candy coating was pleasantly crunchable, not too hard, and the nuts were fresh. However, I noticed some quality inconsistencies as the green almonds had a powdery film, which made them less appealing. In another instance, the Christmas color theme was off, with the green and red replaced by pastel and brick hues, which was a bit disappointing. Nevertheless, the taste was consistently delightful, making them a repeat purchase for my festive celebrations.

A Christmas Story Sour Cherry Candy

  • Watch Your Mouth

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty, Cheap, Holiday, Unique

Christmas candy gift ideas like this sour cherry candy inspired by the film A Christmas Story are like no other. No DIY efforts could equal the lovable design of the tin full of soap-shaped candies.

The sour cherry treats mimic the famous scene in the film where Ralphie gets his mouth washed out with soap. Those you give the tin to can just enjoy the candies, one by one.

Personal Perspective

These candies offer a delightful, piquant flavor that lingers pleasantly after dinner, providing a unique blend of heady intensity with a touch of mellow smoothness. This product's petite size is surprising and might leave some wishing for a larger container, but its charm lies in its compactness, ideal for hand-holding or pocket-stashing. Not only is this tin a sweet treat, but it also doubles as a handy keepsake for collectors or a resourceful mini emergency kit, perfect for storing change, band-aids, and other small necessities once the candy is gone.

Reindeer Poop & Chocolate Snowballs Set

  • Naughty Or Nice

  • $$$$$
  • Holiday, Novelty, Set, Chocolate

This hilariously festive set of reindeer poop and chocolate snowballs can warm the heart of any Christmas reveler. The two tubes of foil-wrapped chocolates keep the fun spirit of the holidays going strong. The “reindeer poop” is actually delicious red and green-wrapped chocolates. The “chocolate snowballs” are wrapped in foil, showing off snowmen decorations and just as good.

Community Feedback

My experience with these chocolate candies, humorously packaged as reindeer poop, was quite delightful. Having shared them with my son, we both found the concept amusing, and the taste was satisfactory, though not everyone in our family was as pleased. Despite some mixed opinions on the flavor, these treats proved to be a hit as stocking stuffers for my grandkids.

Godiva Chocolate Gift Box

  • Impress With The Best

  • $$$$$
  • Gourmet, Chocolate, Traditional

You can’t go wrong when you present this Godiva chocolate gift box to those you love this Christmas. The 36-piece sweets collection has it all, including milk and dark chocolate-covered delicacies. The options range from caramels and fruit-filled chocolates to coffee, almond, and coconut flavors to delight with each bite.

First-Hand Impression

I received this box of Godiva chocolates as a gift and was taken aback by the stunning and elegant packaging. Each chocolate was a treat to the senses - they looked stunning and tasted even better, seemingly as fresh as if I'd picked them up from a Brussels Chocolatier. Whether it's a special occasion or just a sweet craving, these chocolates never fail to delight and are worth every penny.

Candy-Stuffed Christmas Stocking

  • Best Of The Yule

  • $$$$$
  • Set, Traditional, Chocolate

Give yourself a break this Christmas and give a little one (or a fun-loving adult) this festive pre-filled Christmas stocking. The stocking is full of 40 treats for every taste. The collection includes savory snacks, classic candy, and holiday accessories like stencils and a mini notebook. It’s the ultimate holiday gift basket ready to hang on the fireplace.

User Experience

Excellent stocking, although its initial appeal could be seen as cheaply made, the contents within were quite enjoyable for my grandkids. Upon receiving it, my kids were thrilled and there were no disputes as the goodies were evenly distributed, however, a minor drawback was the popcorn ball which was unexpectedly hard. Despite some concerns about the expiration date of certain products, I found this stocking to be a convenient and fun solution that spared me the hassle of going to the store, and it was an instant hit with both my toddlers and teenagers.

Chocolate Coal Stocking Stuffer

  • Be Good For Goodness Sake

  • $$$$$
  • Cheap, Novelty, Chocolate

This novelty stocking stuffer is a great way to poke fun at a person who may or may not have been good this year. The inexpensive set of chocolate “coals” can easily be added to any holiday gift or stocking stuffer. The bag of chocolate coal will taste great and instill just enough fear to encourage the best behavior next year.

Personal Perspective

I'm partial to the whimsical charm of these chocolate treats despite their average taste. Simulating the look of coal, they served as a humorous addition to Christmas stockings, creating a light-hearted surprise for both adults and kids alike. However, the quantity was less than I anticipated, and their pricing felt steep compared to local store offerings. While not a gourmet delight, the chocolates were still palatable, adding a sweet twist to the gag. Although the value for money could be improved, these chocolates provided a unique element of festive fun.

Milk Chocolate Coins

  • Filthy Rich

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty, Chocolate, Traditional, Old-Fashioned

These milk chocolate coins can honor the tradition of giving chocolate coins for the holidays. The cute box is decorated to look like a bank vault that holds a pound of gold coins. They’re fun to open up and enjoy and can make anyone you give them feel rich at Christmas time.

Community Feedback

This chocolate coin product was a delightful treat for my students during St. Patrick's day. The coins were well-designed and solid, though a few were unfortunately crushed in the box. Despite this, the quality was overall satisfactory, and the children were thrilled to find them as part of our festive celebration. As a teaching prop or a fun token for kids, these chocolate coins hit the mark. The chocolate's flavor was mild and palatable, and while the packaging was fairly simple, it did not detract from the joy it brought to the little ones.

Chocolate Truffles Set

  • A Truffle A Day

  • $$$$$
  • Set, Gourmet, Chocolate, Traditional

These delightful chocolate truffles can bring a special kind of joy for the holidays. The gift box contains 16 truffles that rival anything you could make as a homemade gift. With flavors like Champagne, Cappuccino, and Black Forest, they’re sure to be all gone before you can say “you’re welcome.”

First-Hand Impression

Great attention to detail is evident in the exquisite presentation of these artisan truffles. While some may argue the price is steep, the quality of the product and the joy it brings to recipients counterbalances this concern. Taste-wise, the truffles had a distinctive, rich flavor, although I found them not creamy enough. Taking into account an unfortunate instance where the chocolates seemed to have been exposed to heat, resulting in a less than ideal texture, overall, they were generally well-received. One caveat is that, despite the provided flavor guide, discerning the different flavors can be a challenge, but this does not detract from the enjoyment of these delightful truffles.

Christmas Pez Candy Dispenser Set

  • Pez Poppers

  • $$$$$
  • Set, Novelty, Holiday, Old-Fashioned

Help someone re-live their favorite childhood holiday memories with this set of Christmas Pez dispensers. The set has 12 Pez dispensers shaped like Christmas characters like Santa Claus, a reindeer, and a snowman. The enjoyable process of filling each Pez dispenser and then emptying it is one to be cherished long after the holidays are over.

User Experience

My experience with these candy dispensers was extremely positive; their quality exceeded those I've previously purchased, adding a delightful touch to my son's birthday party. Incorporated into goodie bags, these dispensers were a huge hit among the children, who loved the toy-candy combination. From a variety pack for a Mickey-themed party to Christmas stocking stuffers, these candy dispensers offer great variety, making them a valuable addition to any celebration.

Chocolate Presents Bag

  • Open Your Presents

  • $$$$$
  • Chocolate, Holiday, Traditional

Deliver Santa’s gifts for him to family and friends with this bag of chocolate presents. The one-pound pack of colorfully-wrapped chocolates look like the best presents. Each tastes of creamy milk chocolate and peppermint, the traditional flavors of the holiday season. You can distribute a few presents to each lucky girl and boy or treat one lucky recipient to the whole lot.

Personal Perspective

These chocolates, while attractively wrapped, fell far short of my expectations. The mint flavor was disappointingly faint and the overall taste seemed stale. Even worse, it seemed like these chocolates had previously melted and then hardened again, making the wrappers incredibly difficult to remove. The quality of the chocolate just didn't justify the premium price point. These chocolates were such a letdown that they served a better purpose as a paperweight than a treat.

Bumble Bubble Gum Tin

  • Monster Mash

  • $$$$$
  • Old-Fashioned, Novelty, Cheap, Holiday

The classic holiday Bumble monster from the Rudolph story comes to life with this cool decorative bubble gum tin. It features the design of the adorable Abominable Snow Monster wrapped up in Christmas tree lights. Inside, they’ll find berry-flavored, red-diamond-shaped gum to be enjoyed, along with this harmless holiday Bumble.

Community Feedback

I've experienced mixed feelings about this stocking stuffer. Initially, its size shocked me due to its smallness, which was a tad disappointing. However, when I began to appreciate its minuteness, I found it to be quite charming. For those who have a thing for collecting miniature tins, this could be a fun addition. Despite the initial setback, I ended up enjoying this product. It turned out to be a cute, albeit tiny, surprise that added a bit of fun to my collection.

Turkish Delight Candy Gift Basket

  • An International Delight

  • $$$$$
  • International, Gourmet, Set, Unique

This Turkish Delight gift tin flips the script on traditional candy Christmas gifts this season. The eye-catching decorative tin holds 90 pieces of Turkish Delight candy in six different varieties. The chewy, fruity flavors can invigorate anyone’s taste buds for Christmas and keep them coming back for more.

First-Hand Impression

If you're a fan of Turkish delight, this product might just hit the sweet spot. I found the variety of flavors to be a delightful surprise, with mint and rose flavors being particularly intriguing. However, the excessive amount of powder inside the tin was a bit of a letdown as it made the eating experience rather messy. The tin itself is a nice quality and adds a touch of class to the overall presentation. Despite the minor inconvenience of the powder, the taste and texture of these treats brought back fond childhood memories, making this a worthwhile purchase.

Christmas Peeps Pack

  • Peeps Party

  • $$$$$
  • Cheap, Holiday, Set

The power of Peeps can make any Christmas reveler smile with their marshmallow goodness this year. The set has four packs of Christmas Peeps that include snowmen, gingerbread men, Christmas trees, and stockings. The super-sweet confections can be enjoyed on their own or used to decorate their tastiest edible crafts.

User Experience

I'm rather fond of these diminutive candies, but their size can be a bit deceptive when compared to the standard counterparts. The array of flavors is quite appealing, and the freshness of the marshmallows is commendable. However, despite being a hit with children, I found the price tag a bit steep for the smaller packages.

Christmas Candy Gift Tray

  • Kid Candy Buffet

  • $$$$$
  • Cheap, Holiday, Unique

Christmas gummies like the ones in this candy gift tray can make any kids’ holiday super fun. You can give this gummy candy gift tray to a deserving child or a gummy-loving adult. The red, green, and white sugar-coated sour gummies can lift the spirit via the magic of Christmas (and gummies).

Personal Perspective

My experience with this candy was a mixed bag. On one hand, it was a hit at our festive gathering, adding a fun, visually appealing touch. However, the taste didn't quite hit the mark for me, lacking the sweet and sour blend some others seemed to enjoy. Nevertheless, these candies did their job of livening up the party.

Huge Gummy Bear

  • Big Red

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty, Unique, Traditional

This massive red gummy bear is the secret weapon of Christmas candy gifts. The five-pound cherry-flavored gummy bear is just as delicious as normal-sized gummies. Whoever you give it to can even slice it up with a fork and knife, just like the most traditional holiday dessert. It will outlast many other Christmas sweets on the day.

Community Feedback

This giant gummy bear is both delightfully large and tasty, making it a fabulous surprise for kids and teens alike. Although it's a bit challenging to cut, keeping it in the fridge and using a serrated bread knife does the trick, and the flavorful cherry taste is well worth the effort.

Santa’s Friends Chocolate Variety Pack

  • Christmas Buddies

  • $$$$$
  • Novelty, Chocolate, Set

These lovable Santa’s friends chocolates can remind most anyone of the connection that the holidays bring. The set includes three individually-wrapped milk chocolate treats. The holiday characters include a hot-cocoa-drinking cow, a North Pole penguin, and a Christmas teddy bear. Each can warm the heart and satisfy the sweet tooth when enjoyed.

First-Hand Impression

My experience with this chocolate bear was a mixed bag. On one hand, the size and look of the bear exceeded my expectations, making it an impressive piece visually. However, the flavor of the chocolate left much to be desired, with a milky, almost chalky taste that didn't live up to its appealing aesthetics. I also experienced some issues with the product arriving damaged, which was disappointing considering its potential as a stocking stuffer. Despite these setbacks, the novelty of the bear design offered a welcome change from traditional holiday shapes.

Marzipan Fruit Box

  • The Sweetest Fruit

  • $$$$$
  • Gourmet, Traditional, Old-Fashioned, Set

This impressive array of traditional Christmas marzipan fruits can reawaken memories of holidays past. The 54-piece assortment is filled with delightful almond-flavored marzipan in the shape of various fruits. There are strawberries, pears, apples, and citrus to keep this Christmas both delicious and colorful.

User Experience

This marzipan certainly tantalizes the taste buds, with the freshness and quality truly standing out, making it a delight to savor. However, the packaging disappoints, with loose plastic coverings leading to disarray in the presentation, making it less than ideal as a gift. Even though my initial excitement was tempered by the candies melting during transit, the distinct flavor, albeit different from traditional marzipan, was intriguing enough to pique my interest.

Russian & Ukrainian Candy Assortment

  • St. Nicholas Presents

  • $$$$$
  • International, Gourmet, Chocolate, Unique

There are few Christmas chocolate gifts as cool as this assortment of Russian and Ukrainian treats. The candies vary from rich chocolate to fruity picks and creamy delectables. Help the taste buds of those you love take a holiday trip without leaving home. With these old-world favorites, the collection can keep everyone happy, from adults to kids.

Personal Perspective

From first bite, I was taken by the unique flavors and quality of these candies. Despite the variety, each piece offered a delightful surprise, though a couple were not to my personal taste. While the packaging left something to be desired, the candies themselves were fresh and far from your run-of-the-mill sweet treats.
