Candy Bags

Our candy bags are used by large confectioners to home-based candy makers to wrap their snacks and candy. Picking the right bag for your product is essential. Low-moisture items like cookies or pretzels need a high-moisture barrier bag to help keep them fresh, whereas hard candy or nuts can use a low-moisture barrier bag. We offer a range of film options, from low to high moisture barriers, allowing you to pick the right bag to keep your products fresh. From polypropylene to cellophane, you have all the options to package your loose chocolate candies, trail mix, cookies, pretzels, and nuts. With hundreds of decorative designs to choose from, including theme patterns for all of the major holidays, you can decorate any sweet treat to increase your sales, promote your brand, or just give a great gift.


Cello vs. Polypropylene

Most candy bags are either made from cellophane, which is made from a wood pulp-based film, or polypropylene, which is an oil based film. The term “Cello Bags” has become the common slang for candy bags among consumers, even though Cello Bags come from polypropylene. It is important to look at the material in the description area of our product pages to determine the material of the bag you need. Both Cellophane and Polypropylene have unique benefits for candy and cookie storage and freshness.


Cellophane

Cellophane is naturally biodegradable, and offers superior clarity, with a significant barrier to odor and oxygen, however, it only has a moderate moisture barrier. Cellophane bags are better for higher moisture items such as chocolates and candy. They have a crinkle like texture and feel and are often used by Retailers or Candy Stores for their Eco-friendly attributes that compliment specific product lines.


Polypropylene

Polypropylene is known for it’s excellent barrier properties to moisture, oxygen, and odor. Our Clear Polypropylene Candy Bags are available in both regular and high barrier polypropylene. Gourmet and Candy Retailers would choose a polypropylene bag to package low-moisture items such as crackers, dried pasta, cookies, or dried fruit, as well as candy, chocolates, and nuts. Polypropylene has a clear film, however when the bags are all stacked together in the box, they can appear like that have a yellow tint to them, which is normal. Just pick out one bag and hold it up away from the rest of them, and you will see that it appears clear by itself. Candy bags are offered in everyday and seasonal designs, ink or foil. Select sizes are also available with a cardboard bottom base to provide extra support while standing your candy on shelves for sale or display. Most of our Candy Bags are made in the United States and are FDA compliant for direct food contact. In-stock candy bags can have a logo printed for as little as a 1 case/1,000 minimum order. Custom candy bags can be made with a 5,000 bag minimum.
