Britain's Most Popular Christmas Sweets
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, in particular for indulging in our favourite treats!
Christmas sweets are the absolute best! Whether it’s chocolate, candy canes, boiled sweets, or gummy sweets, whatever your favourite type of sweetie, Christmas has you covered.
And even better, Christmas is the perfect time to enjoy such goodies, guilt-free.
Here are some of Britain’s most popular Christmas sweets, all set to take over the nation this December.
Mint chocolate comes in many forms and is a favourite amongst many. Think after dinner mints, bubbly aero bars and, of course, mint chocolate eclairs.
The perfect festive indulgence!
Green food colouring is added to mint chocolate to make it green, for example, in mint aero bars and mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Mint chocolate comes in the form of both ice cream and chocolate.
A fun fact to know about mint chocolate chip ice cream is that it was invented in 1973 by catering student Marilyn Ricketts whilst she was studying at South Devon College in England.
Orange chocolate is a popular chocolate flavour amongst many. The most famous chocolate orange treat would probably have to be the world-famous Terry’s Chocolate Orange, created by Terry’s in 1932 at the Chocolate Works factory in York, England.
The exact origin of Turkish Delight is unknown but it is thought to have been produced in the 1700s in Turkey.
Turkish Delight is essentially a type of confectionary based on a gel of starch and sugar.
Traditional flavours of Turkish Delight include rosewater, lemon and orange. They’re often dusted with icing sugar to stop them sticking to each other and to add extra taste!
Here at Bulk Wholesale Sweets, we stock a variety of Turkish Delight sweets to appeal to customers whose Christmas wouldn’t be the same without Turkish Delight.
Choose from Fry’s Turkish Delight, Turkish Delight covered in chocolate wrapped in packaging and sold in boxes of 36, or Beech’s Milk Chocolate Turkish Delight, which are gift boxes of rose flavoured turkish delight covered in chocolate.
There is no sweet more traditional for Christmas time than the Candy Cane.
The original candy canes were originally peppermint flavoured, and red and white in colour. The first candy canes were produced in Germany in 1670.
At Bulk Wholesale Sweets, we’ve got some awesome candy canes for sale.
