Simpkins Hard Candies, also known as travel sweets, are the perfect sweet treat. Simpkins travel sweets are recognized world-wide with their distinctive tins packed full of amazing flavours. The travel tin evolved to due it being the only container that was relatively airtight. This was important because the sweets had a high fruit juice content and would go sticky when exposed to dampness. Today, they’re still made in the United Kingdom by a third generation family-owned company. Each tin is full of the distinctive flavours and white sugar powder. This sugar powder was originally used to prevent Simpkins Hard Candies from getting sticky. The original barley sugar sweet was also good for motion sickness (and still is!), hence the name ‘travel sweet’.
