Greetings Fellow Candy Lover!   

Wow, back to school and all that. Adjusting to a new routine, but in some ways back to the normal routine. Don't forget Village Candy's retro lunch boxes, or a Student Survival Kit to send to the one who's left a silence in your home. Also don't forget that, before you know it, Halloween will be here. No, Village Candy proudly refuses to show Christmas candy this early, but we think Halloween is too much fun to hide, and something to look forward to. A totally frivolous holiday that's totally kid-centric. So get an early jump on all we have to offer. You may not have the chance if you wait.
Celebrate the Pirates
No, Not Johnny Depp et al.

Paint The Town

The first winning professional baseball season in these parts in 20 years is definitely something to cheer about. But we're not going to stop there - playoffs or bust!! Village Candy has decided to give you a chance to show your true colors...and eat them! We're slashing the price on Black and Gold M&Ms by 20% (or Yellow, if you like it better) during the month of September! And if you decide to celebrate the Steelers season or the opening of Pens training camp instead, we won't tell.

Candy Neck Rolls
Prevents That Hilarious Neck Bob
Candy Neck Rolls
Have you ever been in a class or on an airplane, and seen someone on the cusp of falling asleep? It is, truly, one of the most fascinating and funniest things to witness - the fluttering eyes, the sagging head, gradually lowering until some random point where it snaps back up. Then the "bobber" glances casually (but guiltily) from side to side to see if anyone took notice. Flutter, bob, snap, repeat.

Sorry, I digress, but it's why you need one of these hip new Candy Neck Rolls. They're microbead-filled, and come in four retro candy brands. And you won't become Mr. Neck Bob!
It's Bacon!
The Flavor of the Month
Gummi Bacon
Bacon is showing up in more and more unexpected places! In fact, it's so popular that fancy restaurants had to come up with something more upscale to call it. McDonalds may have an ordinary "Bacon Cheeseburger," but Chez Burgé (not an actual place) has a Coarsely Ground Sirloin gently draped with Pork Belly and Manchego en brioche. 
Bacon in chocolate? Been there. Bacon soda? Done that. But now, we have something to snuggle along side your Gummi Fried 
Eggs (yes, we have those too) - Gummi Bacon. Thick cut,
Butter Sucker
applewood smoked (actually strawberry flavored), each 4 strip package comes with its own viewing window, just like the real deal. How can you top that? Easily - we also now have "Sweet & Savory" Bacon Candy Necklaces. Like our regular candy necklaces, but with a bacon medallion you'll be proud to flaunt, and real bacon flavor. Joining our new "Cholesterol Collection" is REAL dairy tasting Butter Suckers. Ooh, mommy, umami.
And One More Thing...
Son of Candy Alphabet

Candy Alphabet ight about now you're cursing at your screen, shouting that we used this one before. It could be, but our memories are short lived, so chill. There are a number of "R" candies, some way too easy, some too obscure. So you're stuck with this one. And for once, just pretend that you have to use the old verb "guess" instead of the newer verb "google."
Submit your guess in an email to We'll print all the correct respondents names on little pieces of toilet paper, saturate them with clean water, press the flush handle, and pluck out one before it gets sent to the watery beyond. We'll publish that winning name in next month's newsletter (assuming the ink has not run beyond legibility), and maybe it'll be you. We'll have something worthwhile to give you, as a token of our appreciation.

Quench Gum
Last month's correct answer was Quench Gum, and was submitted by Camille Snyder. We WILL have prize for you.
Quench came into existence more than 30 years ago in the small town of Prairie du Sac, WI. Curt Mueller, a pharmacist-turned-chemist and former UW basketball player, invented a sour spray for athletes designed to eliminate dry mouth, that he called Quench.

The Quench spray was great for basketball and football players, but joggers and runners had a hard time carrying and using the spray bottle while running. Curt thought about the many medicinal gums (e.g., aspirin gum) on the market, and Quench in gum form was invented.

Quench gum's first customers were the Harlem Globetrotters, who bought $90 of the gum at a training conference. Meadowlark Lemon was actually the first Quench spokesperson. Two years later teams from all major sports were chewing it. Many years later, Village Candy was offering it!

Village Candy is an old-time, new-fangled retail shop specializing in a unique selection of retro and current bulk and novelty candy, artisan chocolates, glass-bottled pop and candy-themed gifts. Oh, and remember customer service? It's back!

We are here Tuesday thru Saturday 10 am to 5 pm, but on Wednesday we stay late until 8! We are closed Sunday and Monday.
