Confectionery Pairings That Elevate Your Coffee, Wine, and Tea Experience

Cracking cuppa? 3pm crash? Elegant evening cocktail? The right sweet treat can transform any drink into a true treat. That first sip of your coffee, wine on your tongue, or a soothing cup of tea will taste so much better with a delicious nibble that complements every flavour.  

We at Appleton Sweets know a thing or two about sweet treats. In fact, we have something for everyone – luscious chocolates, tangy gummies, you name it. 

In this blog, discover how you can boost your next drink with yummy pairings with a little help from our delightful sweets.

Coffee and confectionery pairings 

Coffee fan? Then you’ll be pleased to know there's a whole gamut of sweets that can make your much-loved brew taste so much better. 

Enjoy kicking off your day with an espresso? Pair it with a dark chocolate-covered treat, such as Beech’s Dark Chocolate Coffee Creams from Appleton Sweets. The powerful cocoa flavour balances the espresso – you’ll no doubt experience a rich taste sensation perfect for an early morning.

More of a latte lover? Soft, creamy fudge pairs gorgeously with its smooth, velvety texture. Our vanilla fudge, with its buttery notes, melts into the milk, adding a sweet layer to your sip. 

If you love a classic black coffee, introduce some contrast with a bit of tangy citrus. Our lemon-flavoured jelly beans cut through the bitterness and refresh the palate between each gulp.

Cappuccino your go-to? The light dusting of cinnamon on our Cinnamon Balls will complement the spice on your frothy cup superbly. These pairings improve the coffee and turn your coffee break into a mini-retreat.

Whether you're relaxing after a long day or setting yourself up for a busy one, be sure to add a sweet treat from Appleton Sweets to your coffee – it’ll make all the difference. 

Wine and confectionery pairings 

Who knew a glass of wine could be even more divine? Pairing wine with the right sweet treat can take your sip to a whole new level. 

If you’re a red wine aficionado, match your glass with some of our rich, dark chocolate orange creams. The intense chocolate flavours marry beautifully with the deep, fruity notes of a good red, enhancing each other to perfection.

White wine more your thing? Plump for something light and airy, like our strawberry-flavoured marshmallow paintballs. Their sweet, fluffy texture pairs with the crisp, fresh flavours of white wine – each mouthful will be an absolute joy. 

And don’t forget about sparkling wine! It goes well with something a bit tangy, like our sherbet lemons. The sharpness of the lemon balances the bubbles and sweetness of the wine exceptionally.

If you prefer rosé, coupling it with our peach-flavoured gummy rings might be the magic ingredient. The delicate sweetness of the peach enriches the floral and berry notes of rosé. The result? A pleasant mixture of flavours. 

In the mood for a sweet tipple after dinner? Our almond nougat is a must-try. The nutty and honeyed notes cut through the sweetness of dessert wines like a charm.

When you're next cracking open a bottle, don’t forget the nibbles. The right sweet treat from Appleton Sweets might just make it even better. It’s a fun way to liven up your evening and impress your loved ones, too. 

Tea and confectionery pairings 

Tea time is always a treat. But have you tried pairing your favourite brew with the perfect sweet? Black tea, with its strong flavours, goes brilliantly with our salted caramel toffees. The rich, buttery caramel pairs beautifully with the strong tea. Each sip will be much smoother, not to mention more satisfying. 

Fancy some green tea? We have the perfect sweet treat to go with it in the form of our peppermint creams - they're a match made in heaven. The cool mint brings out the green tea's delicate, herbal flavour. Wonderful for an afternoon boost – it's just the burst of sweetness you need to feel rested and geared up for the rest of your day.

And if you like your cup of tea with a bit more punch, check out our fruity jelly beans. They’re the ideal way to pep up your herbal tea. They add a burst of sweetness to the naturally mild flavours of herbal teas. Each bean's fruity punch provides a lively contrast to the calming herbal notes. Each sip will be a little adventure.

If you want a cuppa with a little bit of a twist, go for oolong tea. It’s bursting with fascinating flavours and goes remarkably well with almond nougat. The nutty, chewy nougat balances out the earthy tones of the tea without being too much. Great for a cosy afternoon and a moment to yourself.

Finally, chai tea, with its rich spices, is fabulous with our crystallised stem ginger. The spicy snap dances with the warm spices of the chai, like cinnamon and cardamom. 

You'll be warmed from the inside out. Enjoy this pairing on a frosty evening or as a comforting treat after a meal.
