Canadians just might need bigger stockings this year! SAYBON, the traditional candy brand from the Allan Candy Company, features a total of 11 varieties - from delicious smooth cooked hard candies and classic taffies to caramelized sugarmilks and sugardust sweets. Proudly made in Canada, SAYBON is also peanut free and kosher.

"Whether it's your aunt's love for chocolate fudges or your brother's toffee cravings, SAYBON caters to everyone's taste and candy preferences," says James Benson, Director of Marketing, The Allan Candy Company. "Perfect for holiday entertaining and stocking stuffers, these candies will be sure to please the little and big kids on your list."

SAYBON as the ultimate stocking stuffer

Legend has it that the tradition of stocking stuffers began when Saint Nicholas placed gold coins in socks he found drying on the mantle of the homes he visited. This led to a custom of families hanging festive stockings and filing them with candies and treats.

This year, Canadians can share in the tradition with SAYBON. Available at major retailers across the country for a suggested price of CDN$2.99, SAYBON's product families include:

  • Rich and creamy caramelized sugarmilks: Each candy is caramelized with the perfect blend of milk, sugar, heat and time. Caramelized sugarmilks are available as Assorted Toffees, Assorted Éclairs and Dairy Fudges.

  • Classic taffies: These delicious candies appeal to tastes of all generations. A timeless classic, taffies are perfect for sharing with family and friends. Taffies are available as Butt'r Mints and Fruit Taffy.

  • Smooth hard cooked candies: Cooked into an extremely fine layer to create candies that are soft to the tongue and dense with flavour. These are available as Glitter Mints, Butt'r Creams and Menthol Eucalyptus.

  • Double crafted centre fills: Crafted in two distinct steps then combined to create the perfect taste. Centre fills are available as Assorted Crunches and Soft-Centered Fruits.

  • Sugardust sweets: Pressed, poured and panned, sugar dust sweets easily dissolve on the tongue, coating the mouth with lasting sweetness. These candies are available as Scotch Mints. *Sugardust sweets are not kosher.
