Candy is cheapest this time of year, especially if you have coupons. This is the time to stock up. The autumn colored Hershey’s Kisses will not matter if you are saving them to make peanut butter cookies with kisses on them. Chocolate freezes very well.
Those licorice whips can be tied into bows around three pretzels to make a Christmas Wreath. Some candy is great to decorate a birthday cake. Think about the baking you will be doing in the next few months. Get the candy now because the wrapper will not matter.
You can even freeze Hershey’s candy bars for your s’mores next summer.
