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!
