Molly & Drew, known for its beer bread mixes, has created on-trend gift sets with its Mug Cake Kits, which each contain one mug and one cake mix.
The recipient just adds water, stirs and microwaves for a single serving mug cake in 90 seconds.
The company also offers single-serve packets of mug cake mixes that will cross-merchandise with the mugs you’re already carrying too. They come in four flavors: Ooey-Gooey Chocolate, the company’s best-seller; Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel; Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake; and Chocolate Candy Cane.
The mug and mix gift sets retail for $10, and the single serving mixes retail for around $4 apiece.

The line also includes Lillie’s Q Original Kettle Chips.
The 1.65-ounce single-serving bags retail for $1.40 to $1.50, while the 6-ounce bags retail from around $3.75 to $4.00.
Since fall will be here before we know it, Hammond’s Brands, the parent company of Hammond’s Candies, Old Dominion Peanut Company, McCraw’s Candies, and Mellow Fluffs, has its popular line of pumpkin spice and apple-infused treats now available for shipment. Many of the candies and snacks that have made Hammond’s Colorado’s favorite handmade confectioner undergo an autumnal transformation each year.
This year, Hammond’s is offering four seasonally-inspired specials:
- Fall Popcorn Cones are a great grab-and-go snack that come in Candy Corn, Pumpkin Spice, or Apple Cider flavors. The 2-ounce cones are packaged in an 18-count assorted display with a suggested retail price of $2.99 per cone.
- Small batch Pumpkin Spice Caramels are hand-crafted, buttery delights that come in an 80-count display tub of .75 -ounce candies with a suggested retail price of $0.99 per caramel.
- Pumpkin Spice Caramel Marshmallows combine the fluffy texture of Hammond’s much-loved vanilla marshmallows, caramel and pumpkin spice. They are packaged in 1.85-ounce packs of three marshmallows and are available in a 15-count display with a suggested retail price of $3.49 per pack.
- The new Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bar balances a pumpkin-flavored cream center with decadent dark chocolate. It’s available in 12-count boxes of 2.25-ounce bars with a suggested retail price of $2.99 per bar. This is the first time that Hammond’s Dark Chocolate Bars are undergoing this seasonal makeover.
“Snackers love the nostalgic, warm flavors that they associate with fall — in fact, pumpkin-flavored products accounted for $361 million sales last year alone and that number keeps growing,” said Andrew Schuman, Hammond’s President and CEO. “We’re excited to help retailers stock up, since appetites for pumpkin spice, apple, and other fall flavors start earlier and earlier each year!”
