Hammond’s Expands Pantry Candy Line

DENVER — Customers asked, and Hammond’s listened. The parent company of Hammond’s Candies, Old Dominion Peanut Company, McCraw’s Candies, and Mellow Fluffs has added new packaging for five of its most popular everyday treats.

The popular confectioner’s recently expanded Pantry Candy line now features 4 oz. 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.

Each candy in this expanding Pantry Candy line comes packed in 8 retail units per display ready case, and each individual bag has a suggested retail price of $2.99. If you can’t seem to keep your shelves stocked with Hammond’s festive gift versions of these classics, fear not! Each flavor will continue to be offered in the popular 10 oz. gift tins as well.

“Close to 260 million Americans snacked on candy in 2017 and quite a few of these snackers reached out to us to let us know they had a taste for pantry candy!” said Andrew Schuman, Hammond’s President and CEO. “We’re excited to be able to give our customers what they want — specifically, an easier way to treat themselves to the sweets that they’ve been gifting for years.”

About Hammond’s

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 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 (and has doubled the number of employees). 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.
