Candy Kittens 

Candy Kittens

“In the Spring of 2012, Jamie Laing alongside his role on award-winning reality TV series, Made in Chelsea, launched Candy Kittens, an innovative, gourmet sweet range that set out to focus on quality. Using the best possible natural ingredients, and authentic flavours in beautiful packaging, the brand hasn’t looked back since.

“As I grew up, I found that the sweets I liked didn’t grow up with me.”

The confectionary challengers identified there was a big gap in the market for a grown-up, exciting sweet. At one end of the spectrum were cartoon-clad bags for kids, with the alternative being dull, boiled sweets, often found in a grandparent’s car. This was the perfect space for Candy Kittens”

Just whole foods
"Just Wholefoods was started 22 years ago by Anne Madden and James White, both committed vegetarians. Their objective was to provide good quality vegetarian foods that were free from artificial colourings and flavourings, something that was sadly lacking in those days. As the company grew they began to realise the benefits of eating and growing organic food and they started developing their products to the strict rules of EU organic food production.Over 80% of their products are organic and any future products will be organic, unless there is a very good reason for them not to be.

Even with the rapid growth of organic products in the UK they still maintain the ethics with which they started. One of the big issues affecting food is genetically modified (GM) which Just Wholefoods are vehemently against and all of their products are free from any such modified ingredient”. Their biggest success has been winning the Confectionery and Snacks Category of the 2000 Organic Food Awards with VegeBear's - fruit jellies. "We were thrilled to win the award, especially as it is in such a competitive category," says James. "We have never won anything like this before and it came as a complete and utter shock to us both."

From his UK based Vegan Chocolate Factory Plamil's Vegan Managing Director Adrian Ling says:
I am proud that as an independent chocolate manufacturer we can be truly innovative. The selling points of these bars are unique; lots of cocoa, no added sugar, dairy and gluten free! We teamed up with top London nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston to develop this special dairy- free version of our tasty chocolates.
Yvonne asked if we could create a magic version of our dairy-free chocolate that she could happily recommended, with the no sugar, lower carb, higher protein and perhaps some essential fats, but still retain the delicious flavour of chocolate.
Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston comments:
This really is guilt free with all the health benefits and none of the drawbacks of sugar or artificial sweeteners - at last we really can have our cake and eat it. Despite Xylitol's awful chemical sounding name, the health benefits of this sweetener used in the recipe, discovered in Finland during the war are abundantly backed up by 50 years of research. It's not only good for your teeth but evidence shows it may be good for your bones too”. (Copied from Plamil website)
