Give Thanks in The New Year

As the ball comes down on another year, we just want to review this year and thank all of our clients for making this the best year yet at Illinois Nut and Candy.

We thought this would be a good time to not only take measure of 2015, but also to look ahead to 2016.

To do that, we want to focus on three things to give thanks for in the New Year.

Three Things to Gives in New Year

First, our new website launched in December. The new IllinoisNut.Com site promises to offer you the best candies and chocolates for your personal or business needs.

We have all the categories, including Kosher, Gluten, Casein, Corn, Egg, Food Dye, Lactose, Nut, and Sugar free options. Let us know if you need vegan, organic, or Pas Yisroel candy choices also.
Furthermore, we made the website responsive to different types of devices, as well as a fresh new design. The website has a visually appealing way of viewing the candy you want. 

Second, we raised the bar again on the quality of candy. Illinois Nut has been fortunate to consistently raise the bar on the quality of the candy we offer our customers. No matter what type of confection you want, we have unique products and a level of customer service that is head and shoulders above the competition.

Third, we want to take a look at how to make 2016 even better. As the season for sweets winds down, many companies do not send out New Year’s gifts.

However, what better way to start the New Year then to give to others. So often companies talk about how they want to stand out from the crowd. However, this means they send out gifts like everyone else does during the holiday season.

If you want to get your clients started on a sweet stride, then we recommend you give to them when the candy runs out at offices in the New Year.

Last Minute Holiday Shopping

Tis the season where you start to panic! Do you have gifts for everyone on your list? Anyone you missed? Hopefully, none are naughty, and all are nice! 

Get your last-minute holiday shopping today on our new website at Illinois Nut. Do not wait any longer to send off your holiday gifts. We need those orders by the end of the day on Monday, so we can ship them out in time for Christmas.

Three Christmas Gifts

thank you chocolate
What is better than giving a last-minute chocolate combination that says Thank You in 17 different languages. Since Christmas is a time to be thankful for what you have, we could think of no better gift to give for the holidays.

Who are you thankful for in your life or in your professional career this holiday season? 

Maybe you want to give our Chocolate Christmas Tree Pretzels
to someone special. We have three different Lactose/Dairy-Free varieties: White Seeds, Red and Green Seeds, and our non- Lactose/Dairy-Free Red and Green Seeds.

Nothing better than sharing Christmas tree sweets around the Christmas tree.

Finally, send a gift basket to get everyone in an office or home something special. Something like our Corporate CEO gift basket. The gift basket comes with an assortment of salted mixed nuts, toffee almonds, bed bites, fruit and nut mix caramel balls, as well as our hand made Fantasia Confections. 

Our Fantasia confections in the Corporate CEO gift basket include chocolate pretzels, kettle popcorn, a 1 lb of English Toffee, and a 1/2 lb box of assorted miniatures topped with assorted hard candies.

Get in the holiday spirit of giving

Show those around you how sweet you can be for the holidays by raising the candy bar this holiday season.
