Cocktail candies give you all the fun in a bite-sized treat.

Cheers! The holiday season is fast approaching, and if you’re like a lot of people, you like to celebrate the season by lifting a glass or two with friends. Cocktail candies give you all the flavor of your favorite adult beverages, in a sweet, bite-sized form.

Just as much fun for the designated driver as they are for a party animal, everyone is sure to love these delicious sweet treats.

Start out with the Shake it Up Martini Shaker with Chocolate-Covered Almonds. The perfect accent for a chocolate martini, an espresso martini, or all on their own, these tasty chocolate-covered nuts really look like martini olives. Serve them in a wide-rimmed cocktail glass on your bar top for a classy holiday snack. And with beautiful customizable packaging, it makes a great gift, too.

Another hot trend in cocktail candies is wine-flavored gummies. The Yes Way Rosé Roses, light pink rosettes infused with Whispering Angel Rosé, had a 12,000 person waitlist when they were launched in July! And Kelly Ripa called them the “new Birkin bag,” likening them to the must-have accessory of the past few years.

And Staples can get them now!

Packaged in a charming Bento Box (another hot trend in candy),  customizable with your choice of flavors, it’s a childhood favorite all grown up.

If bourbon is more your style, try the Maple Bourbon Caramels, infused with real Maker’s Mark® and premium maple syrup for just the right amount of kick. Smooth and delicious, they’re the perfect after-dinner treat, perhaps alongside a glass of your favorite liquor.

And this is just the beginning. There are so many other options to choose from as well. From peach Bellini gummies, to Rose-flavored sweets, there’s something for every adult taste.
