Gourmet Candy Company to launch new RHS confectionary range

The range will include handmade chocolates, nougat, hard-boiled sweets and bonbons among more than 20 items.

The Gourmet Candy Company has unveiled a new licensed RHS confectionary range.

The RHS range will include handmade chocolates, nougat, hard-boiled sweets and bonbons among more than 20 items. Many of the products in the range will offer a gardening theme, such as milk chocolate flowers, milk chocolate and white chocolate Wellington boots, chocolate ladybirds, chocolate bees, and rhubarb and custard plant pots. Classics such as vanilla nougat, strawberry bonbons, toffee bonbons and, of course, milk, dark and white chocolate bars, will also be strongly represented.

All packaging in the range will be branded with the RHS logo and illustrated with images from the RHS Lindley Library, the world’s finest collection of botanical art.

The Gourmet Candy Company RHS range will launch at the end of April. It was also showcased on the company’s stand at ISM, the world's leading trade fair for sweets and snacks, taking place in Cologne, Germany in January. 

“We are honoured to have been asked to produce this range," said Jaime Waring, Sales Director, Gourmet Candy Company, "which has been carefully designed in cooperation with the RHS to reflect not only our high standards and love of confectionery but also themes relevant to the RHS and its work.”

“This delightful selection of confectionery hits just the right note," added Cathy Snow, RHS Licensing Manager, "with witty takes on gardening themes as well as confectionery classics, superb RHS Lindley Library-inspired packaging and, of course, irresistible chocolates and sweets."
