Top 5 Holiday Best-Sellers

by Josh Early Candies

The holidays are a magical time in the Lehigh Valley, especially in Bethlehem, which has been referred to as "the Christmas City" since 1937. Every year, crowds of people pack our two Josh Early retail locations during the weeks leading up to Christmas, intent upon making our candies part of their holiday celebrations.

With Christmas just over a week away, we understand that you may be scrambling to finish (or start?) your holiday shopping. If you're still looking for ideas, whether they are for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, or for the person in your life who already has everything, then take a cue from our customers and choose something from our list of Top 5 Holiday Best-Sellers.

Our Holiday Chocolate Gift Box ($70) is ideal for the entertainer in your life. The gift box includes a 17-oz. Gold Gift Box of Assorted Chocolates, a 13-oz. Cup of Assorted Salted Nuts, a 10.5-oz. Cup of Milk Nonpareils, a 7.5-oz. Box of Milk and Dark Assorted Caramels, and a 3-oz. Box of Milk and Dark Peanut Butter Cups. They’ll be able to share plenty of candy with others and still have something to keep for themselves.

If they're known to host gatherings that are on the smaller side, then you can always give them our Chocolate Gift Box ($50). This option includes a 4-oz. Box of Milk and Dark Cordial Cherries instead of the caramels and peanut butter cups. Less chocolate, sure, but still plenty of variety.

And… both the Holiday Chocolate Gift Box and the Chocolate Gift Box come with FREE SHIPPING! Hand-crafted, high-quality chocolates and free shipping? It doesn't get much better than that.

Another one of our holiday best-sellers is our Assorted Sea Salt Caramel Gift Box ($16.25). A twist on our Original Vanilla Caramel, our Sea Salt Caramels were first introduced in January 2011 and were quickly named one of Good Housekeeping Magazine's Great Gifts under $25. The combination of our vanilla caramel with the hand-harvested gourmet sea salt known as "the caviar of sea salts" is out of this world.

Only the best for your friends and loved ones, right?

Many of our customers tell us it "wouldn't be Christmas without nonpareils from Josh Early Candies." A 1-Lb. Box of Milk Holiday Nonpareils ($13.25) dressed in the traditional Christmas red and green would be the perfect hostess gift and would offer a sweet complement to any holiday table. Plus, putting these festive candies in someone’s stocking is a breeze. Just choose the 1-Lb. Cup of Milk Holiday Nonpareils instead of the box – the cup will leave you plenty of room to put other Josh Early treats in there!

Do you need another hostess gift idea? Choose our Dark Holiday Mint Bon Bons ($8.50). We have no doubt that the person who gets these will be absolutely smitten over the tiny holiday wreaths that adorn each candy. Don't be surprised if they place the box of bon bons on the dinner table before they serve the first course.
Rounding out our list of Top 5 Holiday Best-Sellers is our 11-oz. Mousse Gold Gift Box ($16.75) that features our Chocolate Mousse and Peanut Butter Mousse chocolates and our Pecan-Rolled Peanut Butter Truffles. This box showcases some of our most elegant candies and would be worthy of anyone on your holiday shopping list.

Giving these products to the people who mean the most to you will undoubtedly result in smiles all around. This Christmas, consider turning our holiday best-sellers into your holiday traditions.
