Our new gemstone candies are sure to hit your sweet spot
Coloured gemstones can look just like sweeties and rocks are as hard as, well, rock. Put them together and what do you get...Gem Rock!
We teamed up with SpunCandy who create the most amazing handmade confectionary ranging from lollipops to fudge, candy floss to toffee. You can even make your own face out of candy, there aren't many things these guys can't do!
Armed with a rough idea and a sketch of our candy, we went down to their Spitalfields shop to meet with their Marketing Manager, Paula Tatchell. We spent the morning tasting every flavour imaginable, juicy fruits, tongue tingling sours, nectarous sweets and even some tempting savouries. We couldn't make our minds up as they were all so delicious, so we had to come home with a pick-and-mix and deliberate. After we had chosen our flavours and ironed out a few style kinks, the Spun Candy design team mocked up our bespoke packaging and labels and we were ready to go! The whole team were amazing from start to finish, a couple of the Master Candy Makers even let us film them during the making of our Gem Rock. The quality of the candy is outstanding and the flavour is so true, you do feel like your getting one of your five a day with the fruity flavours.
Make sure to watch the video below and see how the natural colourings and flavours bring the candy to life. The process is incredible!
