When it comes to candy making, it is hard to pin down a definitive answer to the question: Which are your favorite candy makers?
While the term “candy” is often associated with a specific candy, candy makers vary greatly in the flavors they offer.
For example, candy can be a fruity, spicy, sweet, or salty treat.
Some may even be made with a mixture of different candies, including chocolate, coconut, or coconut milk.
And there are no rules regarding what candy a brand may or may not contain.
“A candy brand can be anything that contains candy,” says Kristina Rader, director of the consumer products division at Rader Companies, a marketing consulting firm in St. Louis, Missouri.
“They can be made from dried fruit, made with fruit or other vegetables, or made from any of the natural ingredients you could possibly think of.
There are so many things that you can do with candy.
You can use a candy to make your own cupcakes, you can make it into an oatmeal cookie, or you can use it to make a chocolate chip cookie.”
And, Rader adds, “It’s hard to pinpoint a favorite.
There’s a lot of variation.”
If you’re looking for a specific brand of candy, there are several good sources to choose from.
“I would say, for the most part, you would want to go with the brands that have a more distinctive flavor profile,” says Rader.
“There are a few brands that you might be interested in, but for the vast majority, the brands I would look to are brands that are known for having more complex flavors, more complicated textures and a more unique, complex flavor profile.”
The best sources of candy are specialty and local businesses.
Candy houses, bakeries, and even restaurants can make great candy, Raker says.
“Most of these shops sell a variety of candies for their customers.
You would want them to be very careful about what they’re serving you,” she says.
Candy shops can also offer candy that is seasonal and can vary from year to year.
“Candy shops are a really good place to go to get a variety,” says Margo Siegel, a spokeswoman for the National Association of Candy Distributors.
“But there’s also so much variety in the specialty and retail categories.
So you’d want to shop around.”
But you can’t rely solely on candy shops for your favorite candies.
The best source of candy can also come from the specialty, independent, and specialty food markets.
“The specialty food market is the one that’s really saturated right now,” Siegel says.
If you are in the market for a specialty candy, you should make sure to research and shop locally, not online, she adds.
“That’s where you’ll find the best quality,” Sinker says.
In fact, it’s the specialty food stores that are most likely to be the ones offering candy that’s truly unique and unique flavors.
“People are going to be searching for that kind of unique flavor,” Sauer says.
So, if you’re in the candy business and you’re not finding a particular brand, be sure to try one of the following sources of candying: specialty candy stores, artisan bakeries that specialize in specialty candies like chocolates, and artisan and local shops that sell specialty products like chocolate, coffee, and chocolate products.
“You want to make sure that they have a good selection of specialty candied candies that they’re offering,” Sayer says.
