The largest manufacturer and distributor of sugar confectionery in Spain, Fini Sweets have been working their magic for more than 40 years.
Like other brands of Spanish Confectionery, including Simon Coll Chocolates, their products are of an exceptionally high quality. Which goes a long way to explaining why the company have been so successful.
The demand for it in Australia was clearly there however. As demonstrated by the number of requests we used to get for it.
So when we were finally able to get it as part of our recent increase in the range of American Candy we now offer, it came as somewhat of a relief.
A very popular treat in the USA. The Hot Tamales Candy is like a very cinnamon flavoured oblong shaped jelly bean. It has a crunchy candy coating and a nicely chewy interior.
We sell a number of very interesting flavours of Dutch Licorice at Moo-Lolly-Bar. Whilst they might not be everyone’s cup of tea in Australia, one of the most universally appealing to all taste buds is the Griotten Cubes Salted Licorice.
Though they might look like a rather innocuous lump of brown sugar, Griotten Cubes Salted Licorice is actually a classic Dutch salted licorice treat. Something that has delighted millions of licorice lovers across Europe for many generations.
Griotten Cubes are one of the most popular of all flavours of Dutch Licorice. They are very soft chewy cubes that are lightly dusted with sugar.
An old fashioned confection with a pillow like soft & chewy texture, Griotten Cubes Salted Licorice are not as strong as other brands of Dutch salted licorice.
Based in Spain, Vidal Golosinas, to give the company its full name, specialises in the production of licorice as well as gummy candies too.
Founded in 1963 Vidal Lollies are a pioneering company who are famous for making a range of unique confections.
These include jelly filled sweets with 3D designs, gummy lollies with filled centres, pectin-filled sweet foam style lollies and chewing gums with a fizzy filling.
They also make a great range of sugar coated liquorice too as well as a selection of Kosher products as well.
October is always an exciting time at Moo-Lolly-Bar. Firstly because it signifies the start of the peak wedding season in Australia. But also because it is the time of year when our suppliers send us their Christmas Confectionery brochures.
This year is no exception.
Infact it is particularly exciting because there seems to be a lot more new products available this year.
So many products infact that our Christmas Confections Range for 2016 is more than three times the number we were able to offer last year.
There are many great brands of chewing gum around but few are as popular as Wrigleys Juicy Fruit Gum.
Recognised by a whopping 99% of Americans, Wrigleys Juicy Fruit Gum was first launched as long ago as 1893.
Made by the Wrigley Company, who since 2008 have been a subsidiary of Mars Incorporated, the brand enjoys annual sales of well over 150 million units. It is sold all over the world including in Canada, Germany, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China and Australia.
Famous for its bright yellow packaging the gum is very popular amongst under 20 year olds. Collectively they make up more than 60% of those who buy the product.
