PHILADELPHIA – With the season of celebration and giving approaching, Frankford Candy, the leader in the licensed confections and gifts industry and the maker of the original Hot Chocolate Bomb today announced that it is expanding its assortment of hot chocolate bombs to include three new flavors – salted caramel, peppermint and double chocolate. The new items join returning holiday favorites such as the Fruity Pebbles Candy Snowman and the Krabby Patties Sliders and will be available at retailers nationwide for a limited time.
“According to a 2020 National Confectioners Association survey, 91 percent of Americans celebrate the winter holidays with chocolate, and 78 percent of people say that sharing and gifting seasonal chocolate is a great American tradition,” said Molly Jacobson, director of business development at Frankford Candy. “Our new and returning seasonal treats are perfect for a festive holiday pick-me-up, for a stocking stuffer or simply to enjoy with family and friends.”
