Nostalgic hand-made artisanal candy for a fraction of the cost of Pappabubble baubles I wrote about two years ago, here. “Made in Candy” have had a stall in the Rockwell Mall in Makati since the Christmas holidays but they were crawling with folks at the time, so I only managed to drop by their visually arresting stall the other day… I loved it! With small bottles like the one above filled with a wide assortment of candy designs and flavors, for just PHP250, compared with the nearly PHP600 for a similar bottle purchased in New York from Pappabubble, I thought it was a relative bargain. They actually make the candy before your eyes, and its fascinating for kids and adults to watch and see them design, handle, pull and cut the treats.
“Made in Candy” is an unusual name (I thought it must have been a Japanese parent company with an unusual english name) but it turns out it was a company started in 2009 in Singapore, according to their website, here. Each piece of candy sports either a fruit, a saying or other design made entirely with candy, food color and intense fruit flavor. They really are quite spectacular.
Of course I couldn’t resist getting a few pouches filled with candy with little piggies as the design and grapefruit as the flavor. These small pouches were PHP100. If you haven’t seen or heard of “Made in Candy” before… drop by their stall at the Rockwell Mall in Makati. These candies would be the perfect Easter Egg hunt candy giveaways. :)
