Jolly Rancher Candies-Keep on Sucking  

With all of their bold and intense fruity flavors, Jolly Rancher Candies will most certainly have you feeling "jolly". These old fashioned candies will outlast any craving you might have. After all, this candy is "Famous For Flavor". These candies are as long lasting as the sweet memories they induce. As you find yourself unwrapping this candy, their fruity and mouthwatering scent will take you back in time. Back to a time when as a kid, a trip to the store meant gathering up every bit of loose change you could find, so you could have your Jolly Rancher treat. 

From Ice Cream and Hard Candies to Jolly Rancher

    These candies were founded in 1949 by Bill and Dorthy Harmsen. They decided to call their company "Jolly Rancher" as to suggest a hospitable, Western company. Their company originally made ice cream, chocolate and hard candies but the biggest focus was on the ice cream. The ice cream was sold at a chain store based out of Denver, Colorado that was called "Ranch Made Ice Cream". However Dorthy and Bill soon found that the sales of their ice cream dropped during the colder winter months. They needed something that was more sustainable and not so seasonal. This is what pushed the company to focus on hard candies. They did just that, giving us one of the most flavorful candies of all times.

Hershey's makes a sweet investment

  In 1996, The Hershey's company acquired Jolly Rancher Candy. The brand has grown tremendously over the past 20 years. These old fashioned candies now come in a larger selection of flavours and types.

Get creative with Jolly Rancher Candies

   These old fashioned candies are always a treat to be savored. Eating them really does make you feel "jolly". But why not impress yourself further by getting a little creative with them? Their texture and colours lend themselves perfectly to some very artistic endeavors.
Besides just ripping the pack of these candies wide open, Jolly Rancher Candies are often used for baking. One of their most popular uses is making stained glass window cookies. The candies are placed in the center and melted to look just like glass. They are also used for gingerbread houses, which are also used for the purpose of  the windows. Because Jolly Rancher Candies have a clear, see through, almost glass like quality to them, they are ideal for any baking that requires a sweet looking candy window, plus they're edible!
Jolly Rancher candies can also be made into any shape with the help of a mold or a cookie cutter. You can get really creative with this idea and invent your own shape of candy in the oven. Some creative Sweeties make sun catchers with them. Although pretty to look at, these decorative sun catchers are not edible because they must be sprayed with a sealer. I have seen these done and they really look like stained glass, especially when the sunlight is shining through them.
