  • Product Info

    • Hodgepodge is completely random and may contain only one kind of candy we produce, or several kinds of candy we produce, excluding Jelly Belly jelly beans (with few exceptions). Take a chance on a great deal on great candy and find your new favorite!

      , One Hodgepodge bag may contain some Sunkist Fruit Gems, some Neon Inchworms, or even some chocolates. Almost everything else in our lineup is fair game, including famous Confections like Candy Corn, Gummi Bears, pectin jelly beans and more! The only candies you won't ever find in a Hodgepodge bag are Jelly Belly jelly beans (obviously!), BeanBoozled jelly beans, or Sugar-Free candies. Of course, they're a little bit on the irregular side, meaning their shape or color is somewhat off. But the quality of flavor and freshness isn't affected at all. Every piece still delicious!

      , , Hodgepodge bags contain a lot of different assortments, and each bag is randomly packed. Consider it a tasty surprise!

      , Net weight 2.5 lbs.

          I was pleased with the other products I ordered. I used the jelly bellies to decorate the roof of a gingerbread house. The red cinnamon I add to my tea. The others I snack on daily. Love the low calories!

          Sticky Mess of Flavors

              Comments about Confections Hodgepodge 2.5 lb. Bag:

              I was excited after having good experiences with Flops to get three bags of Hodge Podge. I figured with my timing I'd get seasonal cast-offs for Valentines but probably Easter.

              What I got was a mess. There were two issues:

              Cinnamon Items overpowered the fruit items. There were cinnamon giant candy corn and sizzling cinnamon bears that just made everything smell like cinnamon.

              Conjoined Cherry Sours were sticky and made a clumpy mess.

              Items in my mix included:
              Red & Blackberries (half of their crunchies were stuck to the cherries)
              Giant Candy Corn
              Cherry Sours - most were grainy and sticky
              Cinnamon Bears - all were half their normal size but the sanding sugar was everywhere
              Cinnamon Candy Corn - something interesting and new!

              I really hoped that there would be a difference in the bags - that some effort would be made to give me different mixes. And at the very least, they should separate the strong flavors like cinnamon or mint from the other fruity flavors.

              I can't get anyone to eat this stuff, I've gotten rid of about a pound ... just 6.5 more to go.

                I place a handful in a small bowl and eat it wile I watch my evening shows.
                The spicy red jellies are GREAT, NOT to spicy, Just the right amount of spice.
                After you get all the candy out of the bag, you are left with about a half cup of sprinkles from the blackberry and raspberry candies.

                    The Hodgepodge that I received was mostly red and black, with standard candy corns. There were 2 cinnamon flavored candies that alone would have been acceptable, however, all other candies in the bag absorbed the cinnamon flavor and destroyed their actual flavor. I know I will never purchase Hodgepodge at any time near Christmas and Valentines day again.

                        In the HodgePodge, there were dark, bumpy candies that no one liked. Bland, funny texture, etc. No real "taste" to them. When you get shipments from the warehouse, it all comes off one pile - no mixing up the assortments. And NO fruit jellies; sadness!

                          I bought a bag for my son and my husband and although it was a good deal, it had mostly one kind of candy in it (which was Candy Corn). I had read some reviews before purchasing a bag so I did know this could happen but was still a little disappointed. I guess I was hoping for something different. Overall, it is still a good deal but you may very well end up with a bag of 90% Candy Corn.

                          Good variety of flavors of candy corns (cherry, cinnamon, and traditional) but the bag was 90% candy corns. The majority of the remainder of the bag was the candy raspberry candies that we love. If shopping at store, I would not have purchased this bag due to the variety.

                          Bag was opened probably during packaging as the box was unharmed. Half the contents strewn between warehouse and my house as the box was not sealed properly.

                          Of what was left in the box 99.7% candy corn.
