The Wholesale Candy Shop

At The Wholesale Candy Shop, providing customers with a way to sit back and live the sweet life is our specialty. When you’re looking to pair savory delights with a touch of nostalgia, there’s nothing better than a box of Gilliam hard candy sticks.

These old-fashioned hard candy sticks are a treat for anyone with a sweet tooth. Gilliam old-fashioned hard candy sticks boast a variety of flavors to fit any personal preference so you have something to look forward to each and every day!

The History of Gilliam and Hard Candy Sticks

Hard candy sticks have long been a favorite, beloved treat. They date back to the year of 1927, when Cleve Gilliam first opened The Candy Kitchen in Paducah, Kentucky.

Gilliam seamlessly paired his love of candy making with his artistic inclinations. It didn’t take long before The Candy Kitchen was overflowing with hard candy sticks, peanut brittle, candy bars, and, most famously, hard candy—which was as tasty as it was eye-catching.

Gilliam expanded The Candy Store as its popularity reached gumdrop-mountain heights (Candy Land, anyone?). In 1944, after 17 years of innovative candy making, Gilliam sold his business—but, like the long-lastingness of his hard candy, Gilliam’s legacy endured.

To this day, Gilliam old-fashioned hard candy sticks are artfully crafted by hand and sold to customers nationwide.

Flavors Designed to Please the Palate

Gilliam hard candy sticks are not a one-size-fits-all treat. Instead, they’re available in a wide variety of flavors so everyone can enjoy them.

Hard candy sticks come in over two dozen flavors. Customers who order through The Wholesale Candy Shop can customize their purchases to include all of what they love and none of what they don’t.

Because they’re available in such a wide variety of flavors, these old-fashioned hard candy sticks are perfect for any party, celebration, retail store, and of course any snack stash.

Savory Options to Enjoy

No matter what flavor you’re fond of, you’ll find a hard candy stick made to satisfy that sweet tooth. Gilliam selections are versatile and provide a customized flavor in every bite.


There’s nothing better on a warm, sunny summer day than a fruit-based hard candy stick. Gilliam flavors include everything from banana and orange-pineapple to lemon varieties.


When you’re up for a sharp-tasting treat, there are plenty of berry-flavored ones to choose from. Blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry options are sure to inspire your taste buds.


For a refreshing take on a hard candy stick, opt for the minty-inspired selection. The Gilliam brand makes cinnamon, spearmint, and wintergreen options with pleasure.


Make any sour day sweet with this variety of Gilliam old-fashioned hard candy stick. Nothing’s so bad that a bubble gum, cotton candy, or watermelon hard candy stick can’t make it better.


If you’re feeling bold and adventurous, try an exotic hard candy stick flavor, like piña colada, rum and butter, or butterscotch.


When you’re feeling dreamy or nostalgic, the original collection of flavors is just what you need. Options like clove, root beer, sassafras, licorice, and horehound are sure to evoke good memories and bring you back to simpler times.

Reviewer: Stacy Owen from Holland, OH United States  
They are a great product, but they seem to come with broken sticks in almost every box we buy.

3 of 5 Breakage could be reduced by labeling shipping box September 9, 2021
Reviewer: from , Wisconsin  
We appreciate the wide variety of candy sticks and the fair cost.  However, breakage during shipping is an issue.  I see that each box was bubble wrapped and that is a good idea.  However, the box of boxes was not labeled "fragile" and looked like it took a beating during transport.  I would suggest labeling all shipping boxes "fragile!" etc., in the future.

3 of 5 Review of Order July 14, 2021
Reviewer: Bob McKee from North Fork, CA United States  
Our order experienced about 20% candy breakage, previous deliveries from other vendors experienced an average of 2-5 % breakage.

We sent photos of the shipment damages July 9 to april@thewholesalecandyshop.com and the admin prefix.

The cardboard shipment box was crushed in several areas likely caused by UPS handling abuse or shifting of the products inside due to marginal cushioning material, maybe a combination.  

The strapping tape used to seal the main box seams was marginal, double strapping is recommended.  The 80 count boxes were individually cushioned in bubble pack and stacked inside the main box.  Wrapping the individual boxes in bubble pack is an excellent  procedure.

There was little cushioning material placed on the outside perimeter of the stacked boxes or to fill the bottom and top voids allowing for product shifting during transit.  

Hopefully our next order will be packaged better.

5 of 5 Best place to order candy sticks from! May 1, 2021
Reviewer: Janice from , CT  
I had ordered the same sticks from Amazon and they all came in broken. Found this shop was the only one that said they would be careful about how it is packaged for shipping to avoid breakage. They were awesome! Only one stick came in broken in the entire box!!
