Devon-based Crediton Confectionery has introduced two new bonbon ranges under the Bristows brand.

The Chewy range comprises bubblegum, rhubarb & custard, blue raspberry sour and strawberry milkshake flavours, while the Traditional range includes blackcurrant & liquorice, strawberry, lemon and toffee variants.

“Prior to the launch we undertook extensive consumer research,” says director David Ives, who acquired the business in December 2011.

“Findings showed that consumers have a nostalgic connection to this much-loved sweet. The Traditional Bonbons are specifically designed to appeal to consumers who want to rediscover the taste of quality traditional sweets. The Chewy Bonbons will appeal to younger consumers looking for a new and exciting taste in confectionery.” The products are available nationwide and bookings have already been confirmed in 200 Costcutter stores.
