All About Rock Candy

18/11/2019 15:54

Rock candy needs no introduction. Every child and adult alike in the UK has tried some at some point in their life. From the novelty sticks at the seaside, to the unicorn rock that Appleton stock, rock is as British as apple crumble. 

Rock Sweets

Rock sweets are a type of hard, usually stick-like boiled sugar confectionery, made famous at Blackpool and Brighton. Most typically sold in tourist hotspots, this perennial British holiday favourite continues to be loved nationwide today, and as a result, Appleton Sweets is proud to stock a fine array of different flavours, colours and shapes. 


So if you run a sweet shop by the seaside, or you have customers requesting rock candy, or even if you’re just a big fan of the hard sweet yourself, you can bulk buy your favourites from Appleton Sweets. 


Regardless of whether your tastes run to our Candy Floss Rock Jars - which are sure to turn heads in any sweet shop, or to our made-for-the-seaside Pirate Rock Dummies - guaranteed to bring in ya’ hearty customers (ahoy matey), we have something to suit everyone. 


Every single piece of Appleton wholesale rock candy is individually wrapped to preserve it, ensuring you stock a bestseller when you display our rock on your sweet shop shelves. 


Not sure which rock to choose from?
