UK confectioner Pecan Deluxe Candy aims to target food manufacturers, fast food restaurants and the catering industry with its new bubble gum-flavoured popping candy.
Supplied frozen, the candy is ready for combining with ice cream, cakes, doughnuts and other bakery lines. This is the latest innovation from the food tailor, having already launched a range of ice cream, beverage and dessert solutions.
The popping candy lines boast a fat coating to form a moisture barrier and maintain the popping sensation. The candy can have different barrier coatings applied, including sustainable palm oil. Pecan Deluxe works with food companies to develop new ingredient combinations to meet market demands.
Pecan Deluxe research and development director Liz Jones said: “Our new bright purple bubble gum-flavoured popping candy is guaranteed to raise a smile both visually and on tasting. Its unusual colour and mouth-watering flavour make it equally at home in a tub of moreish ice cream (it will certainly stand out in the supermarket freezer), or as a cookie topping in a fast food outlet or coffee shop.
“It’s not the only wow-factor ingredient we have, though. As with our other products, all our customers need to do is use their imaginations and work with us to develop what they need to meet mass-market demand.”
