Can you believe we are on the brink of pumpkin flavor season? Uh, we mean fall — it will be here on the 22nd! We know, we know…. fall isn't just about this beloved orange fruit (yes, per botanist's standards, it is indeed a fruit) turned scary Halloween decoration. But c'mon, what sweets store isn't excited to re-introduce their favorite delicious seasonal treats every year this time? Like you don't jump for joy when you see that our Milk Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Caramels and Pumpkin Spice Malt Balls are back on our menu?
Ok, maybe not all of you get so excited. But as a reminder, we do always show some love to our apple-obsessed fans every year too. Both fruits symbolize this time of year in so many different ways, and fall is like the best season, right? It's arguably the best time for our kids, well besides summer because they have no homework and get to swim. But seriously, these delicious fruits remind us of the best things about the season… school field trips to the apple orchard, new back-to-school supplies, and finding your favorite lunch snacks from Mom in your brown bag. Sweets like PB&J sandwiches and sour treats for dessert.
At Albanese, we always take our snacks to the next level. Who needs bread for a PB&J when you have the World's Best Milk Chocolate Giant Layered Peanut Butter Cups, Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Peanuts, and the juiciest Grape Gummi Bears you will ever find? And don't get us started on finding the tartest treats possible — you know, ones that actually stay sour. We guarantee that you won't find a more sour gummi than ours— “the Gummi with the A on the Tummy.” We literally invented the process to allow our gummies to stay sour round-the-clock, well at least until you finish eating them. Our motto is “Starts Sour, Stays Sour,” and we mean it. If you love tart treats and haven't ever tried these, we dare you to give our Sour 12 Flavor Gummi Bears® a shot at rockin' your taste buds — you won't be disappointed.
Any way you look at it, autumn feels like the absolute best time of the year. One we look forward to because it symbolizes the beginning of so many wonderful traditions. While we will miss summer, we know we are ready to fall back into the World's Best things that autumn has to bring.
The World's Best Autumn Activities
We also look forward to this time of year because of the colorful fall leaves, fun outdoor activities, and gradual cooler temperatures. Unless of course you're over in the Midwest where all the World's Best Treats are invented, and it drops from 70 to 40 degrees in one day. 🙃 For most of us though, fall is an excellent time to bike, hike, or run outdoors! Especially in this whacky world right now, we must find time to give to ourselves. May we suggest hiking that trail you always wanted to, but never had time because your schedule was too crazy? If you do go, just make sure you grab our Very Berry Antioxidant Trail Mix to keep your energy up along the way. Don't worry, it has no salt and besides, you definitely deserve those dark chocolate specs we threw in there for you!
We also always make sure we get in as much family time as possible in the great outdoors before the cold and snow arrive. We love to grab a family share bag of our 12 Flavor Mini Gummi Worms® and take the kids fishing or camping — or both! Whatever ways your family enjoys spending time together, make sure you sweeten up your moments by sharing the World's Best gifts with each other, especially staying connected. We can't stress the importance of this more, it's exactly how we look at our gummi bears. Whether it's our famous 12 Flavor Gummi Bears® or our Ultimate™ 8 Flavor Gummi Bears™ with natural flavors, they are all connected by their superior flavor, texture, and ingredients. This keeps the bond strong, and that's not just Ultimate™, it's Albanese.
