Candyland is a “masterbrand” of UK sweet company Tangerine Confectionery, and one of our most nostalgic brands here at Hancocks. It was launched by Tangerine in 2013 in order to bring a number of small sweet product groups – all of which are time-honoured classics and cherished customer favourites – under one umbrella.
The iconic retro sweets now produced by Candyland include Fruit Salad – the tasty chew with a natural pineapple and raspberry flavour – and Black Jack – the popular aniseed-flavour chew that famously turns your tongue temporarily black!
The Candyland collection also includes Refreshers, the famed fizzy sweets that were launched way back in 1935, originally as part of the Barratt family. You’ll also find the much-loved marshmallow range Flumps, plus Wham, Sherbet Fountain, and the iconic Dip Dab, probably the most famous sherbet dip sweet in the world. All of these long-running sweets are the sorts of products that imbue a sense of nostalgia in consumers when they spot them on the shelves.
Candyland sweets bring authenticity and character to any sweet shop or confectionery section. Customers love to see things they remember enjoying as children, and retro sweets are a great way of getting customers into your shop by tapping into warm memories. No sweet store is complete without offering a combination of contemporary, current sweets and confectionery from bygone days.
Hancocks is a specialist confectionery wholesaler offering all kinds of delicious confectionery from the top sweet brands. Apart from Candyland, we also stock sweets from Hershey’s, Mars, Cadbury and Haribo. We also have our own popular brand of sweets, Kingsway. We are experts in helping small and independent businesses make a big impact on the sweet market.
