Sweet and tangy cherry limeade with the extra bite of cola will have them oozing with excitement! Simply add a dash of Nassau Candy Lime Fruit Slices to Clever Candy Gummy Cherry Cola Bottles.

I-Scream Splits
(Banana & Chocolate)

They’ll all scream for an ice cream-inspired combination like eFrutti Gummi Bananas and Nassau Candy Dark Chocolate Break Ups.

Chocolate Lico-Witch
