Christmas Candy That Stays Sweet Forever

There’s nothing worse than needing a sweet treat only to discover, hidden in the far reaches of the pantry, eight-month old Halloween candy, now chalky and stale. It’s an unappetizing and disappointing option. Though our hard-working elves recommend always keeping a well-stocked supply of fresh candy on hand, Old World Christmas has another great solution which doesn’t affect any diets or expiration dates: Christmas candy ornaments. They stay sweet forever, yet never affects blood sugar. We’re taking you down Sugar Plum Lane and highlighting all our favorite sweet treats. 

Because fall has just dawned, we’ll start with a seasonally appropriate choice: candy corn. And our candy corn ornament could not be cuter. A handful displayed in a clear glass vase or dangling from a fall or Halloween-themed table-top tree would highlight all its best features. The sprinkle of sparkle catches the eye and makes the mouth water. It’s not hard to imagine nibbling away at the soft first bite of a super-sweet candy corn this fall. Make that feeling last with a few Christmas ornaments for your collection. 

Though commonly found at the summer carnival, our puffy, fluffy cotton candy ornament never turns to a freeze-dried puck. This poof of pink floss usually melts in your mouth, but in ornament form serves as a sweet reminder of sticky summer goodness and warm memories. Even though it’s not a Christmas candy, it’s a popular treat, and this ornament never gets the attention it deserves. 

Traditionally in Mexico, a star-shaped piñata is broken open preceding Christmas. Though not a star, our colorful horse-shaped piñata ornament suggests a candy-filled tradition delighting all participants. It’s exciting and a bit frightening to see the brightly colored piñata ripped to shreds by candy-motivated kids, but this festive celebration is a fan favorite. 

Moving into strictly Christmas candy, we must start with the iconic Christmas candy there is: the candy cane. Made these days in a wide variety of colors and flavors, our candy cane ornament features a sparkling red and green twist and a sprig of holly. The symbolic stripes and shape of the candy cane are rooted in rich history, and this candy cane ornament, whether it accompanies real candy canes or not, should always have a place on the Christmas tree. 

Two more candy cuties are the holiday candy ornament and the peppermint candy ornament. Forever a favorite in granny’s candy dish, these petite hard candies look cute together and ‘en masse’! On the tree or grouped in clear glass candy jars, the red and white swirl and pink stripes qualify these two ornaments for multiple decorating ideas. They’d be sweet as table decorations, napkin accents or present toppers. They aren’t limited to Christmas, as they would be adorable for a birthday celebration too. 

Our candy list would be incomplete if we didn’t highlight our two most popular gingerbread houses and gingerbread cookie ornament. The gingerbread house ornament is picture perfect, decorated beautifully with the season’s best. The cookie cottage ornament features a different shape, but looks just as tasty. And last, but definitely not least on this sweet list of guilt-free candy goodness is the gingerbread boy ornament. He’s not running anywhere and he’ll remain smiling and dapper in his cheery, frosting-lined vest. 

Our hefty list of Christmas candy can never disappoint. Not only because there’s much variety, but because ours never stales or goes bad. It sparkles and stays sweet forever. You never need an excuse for extra sweetness, stock up on these sweets today!
