The Company: Sweet Candy Co., Salt Lake City, Utah
The Product: Chocolate Wine Sticks
The Hook: Instead of pairing wine with its chocolates, Sweet Candy Co. has infused wine right into its candy and enrobed it in chocolate. The company’s Chocolate Wine Sticks consist of wine-flavored pectin gel centers enrobed in dark chocolate. Although the candies are made with real wine reductions, they do not contain any alcohol. Chocolate Wine Sticks are available in three flavors: Cabernet, Port and Champagne.
Ingredients: Champagne: Dark chocolate (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, chocolate liquor processed with alkali, soy lecithin (an emulsifier), pure vanilla, salt, artificial flavor), sugar, corn syrup solids, corn syrup, dextrose, white wine reduction (contains sulfites), natural and artificial flavors, pectin, citric acid, sodium citrate, glycerine, tartaric acid. May contain trace amount of milk chocolate. Manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts and tree nuts.
