Frankford Candy exhibits holiday spirit with seasonal launches

Frankford Candy is launching three new varieties of its hot chocolate bombs, and bringing back its Fruity Pebbles Candy Snowman and Krabby Patties Sliders.

The holidays are quickly approaching and Frankford Candy is helping consumers embrace all the warm and fuzzy feelings associated with the season.

Recently, the Philadelphia-based company announced a brand new assortment of its hot chocolate bombs, as well as the return of its Fruity Pebbles Candy Snowman and Krabby Patties Sliders.

“According to a 2020 National Confectioners Association survey, 91% of Americans celebrate the winter holidays with chocolate, and 78 percent of people say that sharing and gifting seasonal chocolate is a great American tradition,” said Molly Jacobson, director of business development at Frankford Candy. “Our new and returning seasonal treats are perfect for a festive holiday pick-me-up, for a stocking stuffer or simply to enjoy with family and friends.”

The Fruity Pebbles Candy Snowman, which is a cereal-milk flavored candy in a snowman shape, contains Fruity Pebbles pieces.

On the other hand, the Krabby Patties Sliders are gummy sliders that come in a pack of three that are much larger than the previously launched Krabby Patties gummies, the company said.

“Fans of Pebbles cereal have loved our growing lineup of Pebbles candy products,” Jacobson said. “Each of the products combines real Fruity Pebbles or Cocoa Pebbles cereal with creamy candy, so fans can enjoy the flavorful taste of their favorite cereal in every bite. Our Krabby Patties Sliders are one of our most popular stocking stuffers for the holiday season. They have the same great flavor fans love about the original, just bigger in size, so we’re excited to bring them to fans for the holidays this year.”
