The founders of Naked Marshmallow have started a new confectionery company – and will start production with the launch of a new range of lollipops, designed to look like planets.
Marvellous Confections has already taken pre-orders for the new range of lollipops, which are available in a set of eight for a price of £15. The individually wrapped sweets are made using sugar, liquid glucose, water, natural flavouring, natural colouring and edible glitter – as well as a “top secret technique”.
They are available in watermelon, black cherry, banana, chocolate, cola, cream soda, candy floss and bubble gum flavours.
In addition to the lollipops, the new brand has developed a line of “moon rock” – an edible sugar confection made to look like pieces of the moon and available in vanilla, caramel and raspberry flavours with a price of £10 per tin. The quirky treat provides an ideal option for gifting, Marvellous Confections said, with a six-month shelf-life and plans to further grow the brand through product development.
“These are just a taste of what’s to come under the Marvellous brand,” Naked Marshmallow co-founder Joseph Colson told FoodBev.
“The reason for placing these under a new company is because we felt the new products we have planned would dilute the marshmallow brand. We want to concentrate Naked Marshmallow on reinventing marshmallows and products around our marshmallows.
“The new company is for reinventing confectionery, and lollipops are just the start. We’ve let our imaginations go wild on creating wonderful new products under this brand and can’t wait to share our creations with everyone.”
We first met Naked Marshmallow at IFE in 2015, when FoodBev spoke to Colson, alongside co-founder Ollie Rendall, about the brand’s artisan marshmallows and its unique start to life.
