Hammond's Brands Now Shipping Pumpkin Spice Popcorn, Chocolate Bars, Marshmallows, and Caramels

 Since fall will be here before we know it, Hammond's Brands, the parent company of Hammond's Candies, Old Dominion Peanut Company, McCraw's Candies, and Mellow Fluffs, today announced its popular line of pumpkin spice and apple-infused treats are now available for shipment. Many of the candies and snacks that have made Hammond's Colorado's favorite handmade confectioner undergo an autumnal transformation each year.
This year, Hammond's is offering four seasonally-inspired specials:
  • Fall Popcorn Cones are a great grab-and-go snack that come in Candy Corn, Pumpkin Spice, or Apple Cider flavors. The 2 oz. cones are packaged in an 18-count assorted display with a suggested retail price of $2.99 per cone.
  • Small batch Pumpkin Spice Caramels are hand-crafted, buttery delights that come in an 80-count display tub of .75 oz. candies with a suggested retail price of $0.99 per caramel.
  • Pumpkin Spice Caramel Marshmallows combine the fluffy texture of Hammond's much-loved vanilla marshmallows with caramel and pumpkin spice. They are packaged in 1.85 oz. packs of three marshmallows and are available in a 15-count display with a suggested retail price of $3.49 per pack.
  • The new Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bar balances a pumpkin-flavored cream center with decadent dark chocolate. It's available in 12-count boxes of 2.25 oz. bars with a suggested retail price of $2.99 per bar. This is the first time that Hammond's Dark Chocolate Bars are undergoing this seasonal makeover.
"Snackers love the nostalgic, warm flavors that they associate with fall — in fact, pumpkin-flavored products accounted for $361 million sales last year alone and that number keeps growing1," said Andrew Schuman, Hammond's President and CEO. "We're excited to help retailers stock up since appetites for pumpkin spice, apple, and other fall flavors start earlier and earlier each year!"
Visit us at Booth 3276 at NY NOW Gift Show, August 20-23 and place your order for these best-selling products.

About Hammond's Hammond's Candies began delighting candy lovers with artisan candy canes, beautifully spun ribbon candy, and larger-than-life lollipops when it was founded by the Hammond family in 1920, making it Colorado's favorite handmade confectioner for decades. In 2007, the company became the Hammond's that it is today through its acquisition by current President and CEO Andrew Schuman, growing from a much-loved, local candy company to a leading gourmet sweet provider with national regard (and has doubled the number of employees). Since then, Hammond's has gone on to acquire such companies as McCraw's Candies in 2010 and Old Dominion Peanut Company in 2012 as well as to gain impressive recognitions for their brand packaging and product innovation.

Natural Remedies to Get Rid of Pesky Ants

Living with ants is as much as a problem as living with killer bees. They are annoying and bothersome and just plain outright nasty. To see their long trail of nonsensical travel is so "Yuk." As the environment goes green and everyone is trying to cut down on electric consumption, plastic water bottles and buying electric cars, does it not make sense to kills ants the "green way."

Sometimes you feel as you just want to leave those little critters alone, as they do look helpless, until one of those real nasty red ones comes your way and bites you right on the bottom of your foot. As you limp around for days on end trying to balance, you have an evil thought come into your head, about how you can possibly annihilate the whole tribe.

As to keep everything sensible and clean, here are some of the best natural remedies.

1. One of the best ways to get rid of ants is to lay talcum powder where ever you see the ants and any place you expect them to show up. It is best to use scented talcum powder. As long as they see the powder, they will disappear. But surely as there will be a sun tomorrow, they will return when they sense there is no talcum powder. So be armed with extra bottles.

2. The second best thing to use is straight vinegar. You can use raw which is better for everything, but I think that ants are not on a health diet. So being raw is more expensive, you may want to go with a generic one. You can use either apple or plain. Just place the vinegar in a squirt bottle and squirt the vinegar everywhere. On the sidewalks, doors and even the kitchen counters.
3. The third way is plain ole cinnamon. Just sprinkle it everywhere. I suggest you put some cinnamon oil in the vinegar bottle. Why not have two shots for the same squirt?

4. The fourth way is black pepper and you can sprinkle it just like the cinnamon, but if you really want to make those pesky creatures angry, mix it with some turmeric powder. Ouch, that burns!

5. There are many suggested sprays from some liquid soap and water to hydrogen peroxide and lemon. They all work, just pick the one that works best for you.

There are more that don't work as well, but why should they be listed here. These are some of the best and they work. Keep the environment clean and kill those nasty creatures please.
