America has a sweet tooth, and candy is the preferred treat for millions of people of all ages. In fact, according to the National Confectioners Association, Americans spend about $8 billion annually each year on these sweet treats. Dollar stores that keep discount candy in stock should keep a wide variety handy to appeal to every customer.

Different Types of Wholesale Candy at a Discount

One very popular type of confection is "gummi" candy. Chewy, translucent, and available in a wide variety of colors and flavors, gummi treats have been around since the 1920s. The most common form of this confection is the gummi bear, which can be found in flavors like fruit and cinnamon. Wholesale gummi treats are also available in shapes like worms, drops, fruit slices, and even bugs.

One of the most popular candies for Halloween is candy corn. Created by George Renninger in the 1880s, it was originally made and distributed by the Wunderlee Candy Company. The triangle-shaped confection features three colors (white, yellow, and orange) and tastes of honey. Even though it is considered a Halloween treat, true aficionados eat it all year long.

Dollar stores can encourage shoppers to purchase discount candy not only by creating a section devoted to candy and snacks, but also by placing it by the checkout counters. Customer may pick up some extra goodies on impulse on their way out the door.
