I usually make the trip down from Staten Island to Old Monmouth and get our Easter candy myself, but this year had to be a bit different. My mom was able to get us the essentials (bunnies, brittle, a couple candy bars and some foil wrapped eggs to fill the plastic eggs for our hunt), but I missed going myself. THANK YOU to Old Monmouth for all your hard work that’s keeping our Easter traditions alive 💖 As soon as we’re allowed to travel again, I’ll be down to show my continued support of this amazing business😊
I miss you!

“Damn!” said the panda. “This really is the best peanut brittle in the world.”

“Well, I’d sure like to try some.” I said as I reached over to grab a piece.

“Ouch!” I yelled when the panda bit my hand. I had forgotten that pandas aren’t very good at sharing. Especially when it comes to delicious peanut brittle.

Only 10 more shopping days until Easter! There were a lot of question marks that were swirling around Easter 2021, and because of that we pulled back a bit with our production. We highly recommend you come in sooner rather than later, to ensure you get all of the basket fillings you could possibly want. Open 10-6 Monday through Saturday, and 10-5 Sunday.

One of our 3 foot bunnies have found their new forever home! Well, maybe not FOREVER forever, but at least until they can get enough milk on hand.

03/14/2021

Our apologies to the postal worker that will be showing up tomorrow morning, but they have a bunch of bunnies to deliver for us. Order online, and ship anywhere in the US. Place your order by March 27th to ship before Easter.

All of the information is now available at our store in Freehold for the 2021 Easter fundraiser. If you are a returning group that has sold our candies in the past, feel free to contact us ahead of time and we can have the brochures ready for you when you arrive. If you are a new group to sell with us, we can sign you up at the store. It only takes a few moments.
For the first time ever, Old Monmouth will be offering a no contact/ hands free Online Fundraising program for the 2021 Easter Season. Each group will be provided their own coupon code that they can share with their customers. If the coupon code is used with our online shop, the referring group will receive 20% of all eligible sales. This program can be done in addition to our classic brochure sales, or completely on its own.

Old Monmouth Candies needs help! Well, we all do, don't we? But we need some help in the employee sense. Old Monmouth is currently looking for daytime and weekend help through Easter season. If this works for you, stop on in. If you know somebody that might be interested, pass it on. If you are a scientist working on a fully automated candy store robot, and need a place to test it out, we are VERY interested (no killer robots please).

As many of you know Old Monmouth Candies is a family run business that relies heavily on Easter. Every year our dad worries (and he's quite the worrier) about whether or not it'll be a "good season".

We look for things like... Easter falling later in April for a longer season, (we do not like March Easters in the Gunther family). Or whether or not we've had a snowy winter that could make its way into the Spring, we especially despise a snowy Saturday that prevents all of our customers from leaving the house on the weekend. These are things my dad tracks, by the day, each and every season to see how external factors impact the success of that year.

We are primarily a brick and mortar business running almost exclusively on in-person sales and fundraising. So it goes without saying, a global pandemic locking people in their homes 4 weeks before Easter - not something we were prepared for.

Without being able to be there in person, I watched my family thrive from afar. They took the fear of having to close the Candy Store's doors for the first time since 1948. They've been fighting each and every day to pivot their way of sales and get thousands of orders out the door. My parents Hal Gunther and Susan Gunther worked 15 hour days alongside my siblings David Gunther and Mark Gunther,with special guest appearances by Lisa Girandola when they needed it most. Then, when the days would end my brother Steven would show up for the night shift and pack boxes until the sun rose. Staying safe distances a part - they took the calls, completed the orders and delivered Easter to you. They even had a 6ft long table they would slide orders across to keep themselves and all of you safe!

To every person who purchased online, came by for curbside pick up, phoned in an order or simply shared a post to their loved ones - we cannot thank you enough. And to my family, to say I'm proud is an understatement. When this first started I said I had faith because this business is rooted in love and tradition, and I truly believe that's what got us through.

So I ask you on this Easter weekend spent in our homes, please share a photo of your Easter Basket with Old Monmouth Candies and tag us! My family, who worked so hard to get that to you, would love to see the fruit... or candy... of their labor.

Due to the huge increase in online shipping orders, we will be closing down the site to Easter sales after Saturday the 4th, as we want to make sure that we can ship out every order received in time for Easter. Please check back with us often, as we are constantly adjusting how we are dealing with the Corona Easter situation. Link in bio

In light of the current "stay home" order, Old Monmouth has decided to postpone all in person transactions for the foreseeable future. We are still processing and shipping orders that are made online and via email, and will be enhancing our online presence in the coming days. We want to make sure that everyone can still have an Easter basket filled with Old Monmouth Easter Candies. Stay tuned.
