Candy Flavoring Oils

Candy Partners Benefit from No Minimum Orders & Short Lead TimesWhen it comes to tempting the sweet tooth again and again, flavor is everything. 

Our soft and hard candy flavoring oils are derived from natural, premium sources - and never include any added salt, sugar or other artificial ingredients - and formulated to be stronger and more versatile than other flavoring methods. This makes them suitable for almost any application. Indeed, Bickford Flavors can give your product the exact flavor consistency it needs to hit the mark and standout in a crowded candy market.

As a small batch candy maker or large production candy or chocolate manufacturer, you won’t regret going the extra mile to use premium, all natural candy flavoring oils to improve the flavoring in your applications.

As flavor experts and, of course, candy connoisseurs, we love using and recommending our highly concentrated flavoring oils. We offer more than 100 certified Kosher, all-natural soft and hard candy flavoring oils – many of which can be mixed and matched – that will work for any candy application you want to make or improve the flavoring of.

Properties of Bickford’s All-Natural Candy Flavoring Oils

Derived from high-quality, all-natural flavor sources, our highly concentrated flavorings for candy are:

  • Highly heat stable
  • Never suspend in alcohol, with the exception of Pure Vanilla oil, which contains 35% alcohol by volume
  • Suspended in a water or oil base
  • Formulated to be stronger and more concentrated than other flavoring methods
  • Natural and free of additional salt and sugar

“Hard Oils” are Bickford Flavors’ version of an extract, or highly concentrated flavor. Our all-natural candy flavoring oils are formulated to be eight or more times concentrated than our flavors.

With most of our flavors stemming from 100-year-old formulas, our decision to develop our flavors in water-soluble or oil-soluble base suspensions was made to help you produce the best end product.

Water and oil are more neutral, superior carriers than alcohol - never imparting additional flavor or “baking-out,” as traditional alcohol-based extracts do. In turn, our extracts, or candy flavoring oils help your application taste and smell better.

  • Hard or soft sweets
