National Candy Month-June 20, 2017
An Old Fashion Candy that's an ideal summer candy! Truly a classic choice for candy lovers. Maynards Wine Gums have been around since 1909 and are made in Toronto. Wine Gums are ideal in their texture. They are chewy but never too sticky or stretchy. Maynards Wine Gums are a sophisticated candy. So very tasty with all their fine and distinctive flavors.
Have a Wine Gum instead of wine
Despite their name, Wine Gums contain no wine in them and were actually meant to persuade people to eat the candy instead of drinking alcoholic beverages. Well, Wine Gums are delightfully delicious and could easily be savored to the likes of a "fine wine'.
The flavors in Maynards Wine Gums are not overly sweet, and they have a certain level of tartness to them, but not sour. The original flavors of Wine Gums include: Raspberry (red) lemon (yellow) orange (orange) lime(green) black current(black) and grapefruit(white).
