Hard & Boiled Sweets - Delicious Wholesale Boiled Sweets
Appletons stocks a wide range of wholesale boiled sweets, from retro to fizzy - from a large variety of manufacturers. Our family-run business has been selling hard boiled sweets in the UK since 1945 and this experience, coupled with our love of the sweet stuff, means that we can advise on which lines of wholesale sweets will sell well in any type of establishment. We also have a boiled sweets jars section if you’d rather your delicious delights were presented in a jar.
What Are Boiled Sweets?
Nothing will evoke the feeling of childhood nostalgia more than walking into a sweet shop with old fashioned boiled sweet jars filled with Rhubarb and Custards and Chocolate Limes. These hard boiled fancies are made with exactly the same ingredients now as they were decades ago. They were loved then just as much as they are loved today.
How Do You Make Boiled Sweets?
Traditional boiled sweets are typically hard right the way through and often contain a chewy centre. We make ours the old-style way in copper pans, using natural flavouring and colourings which we add to the boiled sugar which is pulled by hand when cooled. We even stock deliciously flavoursome American hard boiled sweets, sure to delight anyone fond of brands such as Hershey’s.
The Best Boiled Sweets Around…
Who remembers going to the traditional sweet shop back in the day, and asking for a quarter of their favourite hard boiled sweets? And the sound of the sweets jangling into the weighing scales was just the most delightful, nostalgic sound, don't you think?
It’s hard not to love old, wrapped boiled sweets, such as the delectable pineapple cubes, luscious lemon boiled sweets, not to mention rosy apples, aniseed twists, fruit rock, to name just a few.
Without blowing our own trumpet, but our wholesale boiled sweets are simply the best – we’ve been boiling them for decades now. You’re guaranteed to find your favourite hard boiled confectionery right here. If we don't have your favourite boiling here, then be sure to let us know and we’ll do our very best to find your favourite childhood sweet.
