With the launch of our brand-new vegan-friendly Duals sweets on the 1st July, we thought we’d give you a little more information about them and why we wanted to bring them to you!

Firstly, we noticed a growing demand by customers for a sweet option that can be enjoyed in today’s current societal climate and met a number of dietary needs. Secondly, both customers and clients were looking for a contemporary sweet that not only tasted good but was creative and inspiring in its appearance and design. In answer to these two huge demands, we created our new Duals sweets, a product based on quality, taste and convenience!

Duals have been manufactured with a unique tool and mould that no other sweet on the market boasts, giving you a sweet choice that no other confectionery company can offer. Our Duals sweets contain a delicious pectin jelly centre, a vegan recipe that delivers a real fruit juice flavour. This is what makes our Duals sweets really stand out from the crowd as vegan pectin centres are not currently offered in the premium sweet marketplace, a niche area that we believe needs to be satisfied in a quality way. But what is pectin? Let’s take a look!

 

Delicious pectin centre

Unlike gelatine, which is an ingredient often found in sweets and is made from animal parts, pectin comes from berries and fruits. Many fruits such as quince and apples are naturally very high in pectin, which is the reason why they are so firm. When heated with sugar, pectin causes a thickening that is characteristic of jellies and jams, which is what is found within our new Duals sweets! As a result of being derived from fruits and berries, pectin is the perfect ingredient for a vegan-friendly product.

As well as being vegan-friendly, Duals are also gluten-free and produced with a dairy-free recipe that contains natural colours and flavours. But this doesn’t mean that we’ve substituted a great taste, you can still expect a mouth-watering sweet option whether you’re in the cinema or grabbing a quick snack for your commute home. With our 125g and 50g options, our Duals sweets can be enjoyed at any time or any place with anyone. We’re excited to finally be able to see months of hard work realised and look forward to hearing your feedback on the latest addition to Sweets in the City! Don't forget to pre-order your Duals below!

Duals are also available with our famous Letterbox Treats!

It’s nearly that time of year again where families, friends and co-workers spend time together, share in the festivities and most importantly, exchange gifts. Yep, you’ve guessed it, Christmas! Despite being nearly six weeks away, you can never be 'too prepared' when it comes to Christmas, especially when it involves buying the perfect gift. Something that many people may find a difficult task to achieve, especially if they don’t really know the person that they are buying the gift for! This is the kind of dilemma you’re likely to find within a working setting when you’re faced with having to buy a gift for a colleague, employee or client. As daunting as this may seem, however, it really doesn’t have to be, with our range of fully personalised sweets providing you with the perfect corporate Christmas gift! Carry on reading to find out the different ways in which you can use our products to solve your corporate Christmas gift problems!

 

Corporate Range

One of the ways in which you can use our sweets gifts for a memorable Christmas gift is by personalising them with branded corporate visuals, such as logos, names, straplines and colours (as seen in the image above). This is a clever way of not only showing appreciation and thought for the recipient, but a unique form of increasing brand awareness, something any business would value highly. The possibilities here are endless, with such a wide range of sweets gifts available for you to customise, from Boiled Lollies, Super Shakes, Jars of Joy and even Letterbox Treats that can contain a personal message, we are confident that these can fill the quota when it comes to alternative corporate Christmas gifts.

 

Christmas Range

If branded corporate gifts aren’t enough to meet your Christmassy expectations, then our collection of Christmas sweets gifts will definitely be! Filled with candy canes, reindeers and gingerbread men, our festive themed Shakes and Jars of Joy are packed to the brim with Christmas spirit, leaving no doubt that whoever is the recipient of these joyful goodies is sure to be left with a smile, as well as having their sweet tooth pleasantly satisfied. Don’t forget, that each one of our Christmas sweet gifts can be fully personalised to contain a unique message by you to the receiver, making your gift that extra bit unforgettable.

No matter what sort of unusual corporate gifts that you’re looking for at Christmas time, we are sure that you’ll be able to find something amongst our Corporate or Christmas ranges. To view the full collection of either of these ranges, simply hit the buttons below and select the sweet gift that you want - Good luck!

Here at Sweets in the City, we think that waiting for your presents to come down the chimney is so last year! This year we have created two personalisable Christmas Letterbox Treats that are sure to provide a little more festive sparkle than a standard Christmas card and just as much excitement as a stack of presents under the tree.

Merry Christmas Letterbox

Our Merry Christmas Letterbox Treats come in a beautiful box adorned with adorable gingerbread men, Christmas candies and stars. Perfect for younger sweet lovers! We have written Merry Christmas on the front of our boxes, but you can customise both the front label and message inside to make this gift extra special.

 

Season to be Jolly

Looking to send a gift that adults can get giddy about this Christmas? Check out our Season to be Jolly Letterbox Treat. We have chosen a black and gold design that perfectly compliments those chilly winter nights. Like our other Letterbox Treats, this box is easily customisable and a perfect gift for a grown-up sweet lover!

Writing a card

Admit it: we all have those times when we struggle to write the perfect message in a card or on a gift label. Either you know exactly what you want to say and just can't find a way to get it out...or you've hit a wall where your mind has gone completely blank, and you end up writing the same thing as last year.

Not everyone is naturally good with words, so to help, we have come up with a few tips that will make your message writing a whole lot easier. Our Letterbox Treats double up as a fantastic card, and all of our wonderful sweet gifts allow you to write a personalised message that will also definitely go a long way!

 

Be complimentary

If you are close to the person you are writing for, don't be afraid to throw in a compliment or two! They will help in making the recipient feel special in knowing that you admire certain qualities that they possess and will show that you appreciate them. Something like: "I am the luckiest person in the world to have such a sweet and funny friend like you."

 

Make the message unique

Writing a message that is unique to the person you're writing for is definitely one of the best ways to make your message stand out from others, especially if you're writing for an occasion such as a birthday where the recipient will be receiving a whole bunch of cards!

A personal message that only you and they will understand is the way to go here. Either an inside joke that nobody else would know about, or a more traditional message such as "I hope you get that pair of shoes you were hoping for." This shows not only that you've taken the time to think about the person, but that you actually listen to them and pay attention to what they have to say when you're with them.

 

Be funny

Even though every message that a person reads is appreciated, most of them tend to say the same, unimaginative things. If you stick with the usual platitudes, your message will be the same as the one before and the same as the next. By adding an element of humour, especially something that's personal, you'll make any reader smile and remember your message at the very end.

 

Be honest

This relates to messages that are a little more heart-felt rather than casual. Something you'd write to a significant other rather than a friend. Here, honesty is the best policy and the key is writing something that comes from the heart. You don't have to write a cheesy poem or anything like that, just something that shows the recipient how you really feel.

Writing the perfect message is only as difficult as you make it. It's easy to over-think and get stuck on what to write, so take your time and even practice if you need to. Once you're happy with what you've got, you can then transfer it over to the card and send it with the perfect gift - one of our Jars of Joy perhaps!?

If you follow our simple tips, you will be an expert in writing the perfect message, no matter the occasion.

Is your big day approaching? Are you trying to think of a fun way to fill up your guests while secretly satisfying your own sweet tooth? Well, there's no better way to do it than with pick and mix sweets for your wedding reception.

Everybody loves sweets, and they are a great way to get the party started. Just think great music, great company, a party atmosphere, and loads of yummy sweets within easy reach. Perfect, right? We certainly think so! If you've got some stubborn guests who refuse to dance, some sweets might even encourage them to get out of their seats, indulge themselves at the sweet table, and maybe show off their moves!

From fizzy cola bottles to flying saucers and jelly beans, we have a wide selection of sweets to choose from - click the link below to see for yourself!

Browse our Pick & Mix range >

 

Here are two great ways to utilise our sweets to make your wedding party a sweet hit:

 

Wedding Sweet Cart

Use our sweets for a classic wedding sweet cart!

When you were younger, did you ever use those pink-and-white-striped paper bags to buy pick 'n' mix at the sweet shop or the cinema? So did we! Those stripy bags still bring back glimpses of childhood memories, so why not use them at your wedding reception? 

A wedding sweet cart is a great way to add nostalgic vibes to your special day and get all the guests reminiscing about their carefree childhood days. Everyone will enjoy helping themselves to some sweet goodies, and the compact nature of a sweet cart makes this a great choice for smaller, more intimate wedding venues. Pair a vintage wedding sweet cart with Sweets in the City's Pick & Mix range and you'll have the perfect match to satisfy any sweet tooth!

 

Wedding Sweet Table

A whole table full of treats!

This could be a better option for larger wedding parties in more modern spaces. All you need is a large table, a pretty tablecloth of your choice, and of course, a whole bunch of sweets for your guests to enjoy!

 With guests enjoying themselves and plenty of refreshments to go around, you can relax and watch your wedding sweet table do all of the entertaining for you while you cherish your special day that little bit more.

Use the links below to order some pick and mix for your wedding day - be sure to get enough for everyone!
