23 Aug

Buy Bulk 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp online at Moo-Lolly-Bar Australia

 

It is not often that a spin off product usurps the original but in the case of 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp it just might be true.

Marketed on their official website as ‘the perfect snack’, 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp consists of a delicious whipped chocolate truffle filling that sits on top of an airy crispy layer and is surrounded by milk chocolate.

Launched in 2010 these twin bars of narrow domed fingers with chocolate drizzled across the top have quickly established itself as a firm favourite in the American confectionery market. Loved just as much for that lovely cracking sound that bursts into the air as you snap, than for its fantastic taste the product is an interesting twist on the original 3 Musketeers.

American Chocolate Showcase #4 – Butterfinger

3 Aug

Buy Butterfinger in bulk online at Moo-Lolly-Bar Australia

One of America’s most popular confections, Butterfinger is a much loved bar of candy which comprises of a flaky, orange coloured compound centre that is not too dissimilar in texture, flavour and taste to what Australian’s know as chocolate covered peanut brittle.

Invented by one Drew Seibold of Florence, Wisconsin and initially manufactured by the Curtiss Candy Company in 1923 who also made Baby Ruth chocolate bars, Butterfinger is is now produced by Nestlé.

A unique chocolate bar, in that there isn’t really anything else like it on the market, Butterfinger’s are cherished both for their peanut butter taste and also the crumbly sensation that explodes on to your tongue when you bite into one.

Famously promoted by Bart Simpson and other characters from The Simpsons, who collectively appeared in more than 150 advertisements for the product between 1990 and 2001, each advert finished with Bart yelling the infamous straplines of ‘Bite my Butterfinger!’, ‘Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger!’ and ‘Nothin’ like a Butterfinger’. In an especially clever piece of marketing most of these commercials were released on The Simpsons DVD sets as bonus features along with other commercials.

Only available in Australia from specialist stores like Moo-Lolly-Bar, Butterfinger also has a sister product, Butterfinger Crisp bars, which take the form of a chocolate-covered wafer cookie, filled with a Butterfinger flavoured cream and covered in chocolate, which many people actually believe tastes better than the original.

Americans hungry for Halloween candy

31 Oct

American Chocolate. Available to buy online in Australia from Moo-Lolly-Bar. To do that just click on this image!The economy may still be scary, but that isn’t cutting into sales of Halloween treats. Consumers are expected to spend 4 percent more on Halloween candy this year, according to a recent survey by the National Retail Federation.

The survey, which was conducted last month, also found more consumers plan to hand out tasty treats, even those who said they have been negatively affected by the economy.

“So far we are seeing increases weekly for the same time period last year and we feel very good about Halloween,” said Nancy Smith, merchandising director for Sweet Factory stores, a bulk candy retail chain mostly found in malls.

“Our assortment is bigger this year. We have more ‘Halloween’ to offer. And the customers are responding.”

The retail federation attributes the increase in spending this year to a change in consumer interest.

“Halloween is expected to be up, which speaks directly to how big the holiday has become for both children and adults,” said Kathy Grannis, director of media relations. “More people than ever will celebrate the holiday this year.”

It also could be related to inflation. The Consumer Price Index, which was released by the government Wednesday, said prices at the retail level were up 3.9 percent in September on an annualized basis.

At Sweet Factory, traditional candy is always a favorite in October but the company also has added new, fun candy that can be worn as jewelry.

“Its got four different designs and it’s doing extremely well. It’s a candy ring that you wear but it’s a wizard head or a pumpkin head…different things,” Smith said.

Consumer interest in candy toys is another change.

“It seems like there is a bigger turn towards Halloween parties and they’re buying little toys that have Halloween candy in it,” Smith noted.

Smith may be on to some thing. In fact, the retail federation found that 34.3 percent of people plan to attend or throw a Halloween party, an increase from last year.

Hershey Co., the chocolate giant, also is vamping up its Halloween candy offerings. Among its 200 Halloween candy assortments, Hershey has introduced a “Scare n’ Share” mix, a 50-piece bag that includes a variety of its best-known brands.

“Our most popular products range from Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to Kit Kat Wafer Bars to our traditional Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars,” said Anna Lingeris, manager of global brand public relations and consumer engagement for Hershey.

Many shoppers are heading to Target stores to purchase candy.

“At this point in the season, candy corn is our top seller, followed closely by milk chocolate and peanut M&M’s with the seasonal packaging,” said Kristy Welker, a spokeswoman for Target Corp. “This will all change in the next week or so when trick-or-treat candy begins to out-sell all others.”

Target said it expects classic candies such as Twix, York Peppermint Patties, Butterfingers and Paydays to be popular choices for Target customers’ trick-or-treat bowls. That’s the way it has been for the past decade, Welker said.
