Celebrating National Candy Month

The sweet, the sour, the gummy, the taffy, the chocolate, and the minty – we celebrate all candy this month (and, let’s face it, every month)! 

Candy follows us everywhere and accompanies any occasion perfectly.

With National Candy Month in full swing, we felt this to be the perfect time to speak directly to you – the candy and confection maker and manufacturer – and highlight some ways you can make your applications tastier, more desirable and healthier.


Your Consumer’s Sweet Tooth: It All Comes Down to Flavor

To many things in life, candy is unrivaled. As humans, we love our sweets and sugars more than a lot of things. However, for as amazing as candy is, if a candy application doesn’t have the right texture, visual appeal, and – above all – flavor consistency, we won’t hesitate on passing.

After all, there is whole world of other candies and sweets to choose from.

That’s why we believe that everything comes down to flavor. To truly create a stand-out, beloved candy application, the flavors you use must leave a lasting impression on your consumers.


To Achieve Flavor that Hits the Sweetest Notes, Have You Considered Integrating All-Natural Candy Flavoring Oils?

It’s important for candy makers and manufacturers to take note of how the entire confection industry is evolving as a whole.

The days of relying on synthetic and imitation oils and extracts are fading, and today’s health and wellness trends and demands are one of the biggest driving forces behind this progress.

Makers and manufacturers are not only ensuring that their products utilize high-quality ingredients, but they’re also advancing to use naturally sourced flavor oils.

As candy lovers and flavor chemists for a wide array of candy applications, we know first-hand that all-natural candy flavoring oils taste fresh, unique and authentic; and cherry on top? Candy flavoring oils that are truly derived from all-natural sources and never include any added sugar, salt, etc., are – of course – healthier. What consumer wouldn’t love this complete package?

So, when it comes to your flavors, the short cuts won’t get you far today. Go for candy flavors that are innovative and true to source.


Water-Soluble, Oil-Soluble & Custom Soft and Hard Candy Flavoring Oils
