What are the most popular occasions to give candy baskets?

What type of candy is popular in gift baskets?

When it comes to curating a candy gift basket, there are two routes you can take: decadent chocolate or sugary candies. Both options have their own distinct flavor profiles, so it’s best to keep sweet candies like gummies and chocolates like truffles separate. However, this doesn’t always have to be the case (think chocolate-covered gummy bears, for example).   In terms of popular candy for gift baskets, consider sweet and salty treats like chocolate covered pretzels, dried fruit, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate strawberry treats, and cake pops. These are just some of the delicious bites you’ll find here at FTD.
