Candyfavorites.com, an online candy store known for its impressive selection of bulk candy offerings, is joining forces with publisher Chronicle Books to promote the children’s counting book "Candy 1 to 20" by Laurie Wolf, Pam Abrams and Bruce Wolf. The promotion features a nostalgic candy contest, with signed copies of the book and boxes of candy as prizes.
The candy contest will ask entrants to submit their stories of how candy was used as a learning tool when they were growing up. Five lucky winners will receive a signed copy of "Candy 1 to 20", while four winners will win one of Candy Favorites’ famous Retro Candy Boxes.
Pam Abrams, co-author of "Candy 1 to 20", explains, “We knew that kids would love learning to count with 'Candy 1 to 20'; what’s been really exciting is that adults are also responding strongly to the book. People have so much affection for the favorite candies from childhood. Candy Favorites really understands the sense of fun and nostalgia of this book and we’re thrilled they’re sharing it with their candy-loving fans and customers.”
Jon H. Prince, President of Candy Favorites, agrees, saying, “We were immediately drawn to the idea of working with Chronicle Books to promote 'Candy 1 to 20'. The book is beautiful and educational to boot, and pays tribute to candy, a subject that is near and dear to our hearts. We love the idea that children can practice learning their numbers in such an enjoyable way. Many parents are going to discover pictures of some of their favorite childhood candies throughout the book, bringing back fond memories of penny candy, favorite lollipops and the many unusual candy treats they loved when they were children themselves.
“Fortunately, today’s parents and grandparents can find an impressive selection of retro candies at our online store, where they can search for candies from a particular decade or by the color or flavor of a remembered nostalgic treat. We’re one of the few retro candy companies who can offer a complete array of candies from the 1920’s to today, including such favorites as Nik L Nips wax bottles, Black Jack gum, Abba-Zabba, Mary Janes and Zero Bars. We also have an assortment of penny candy favorites that were popular even before 1919, so you can be sure you’ll find the perfect treat for kids, parents, and grandparents. We hope everyone who reads 'Candy 1 to 20' will visit CandyFavorites.com to stock up on their own supply of candy treats to help their children learn counting in a tasty and enjoyable way.”
Lara Starr, Publicist for Chronicle Books, noted, “Though our products are quite different, Chronicle Books and Candy Favorites are a perfect partnership. We’re each in the business of delighting the senses – we do it with gorgeous books, they do it with the delicious candy. How perfect that our book 'Candy 1 to 20' brought us together and gave us a chance to share what we each do best with our customers and fans.”
