Maynards Wine Gums Rolls (box of 40 x 52g)
Fruit flavour gums made with natural colours, chewy, fruity, gummy sweets.
Charles Riley Maynard began producing sweets with his brother Tom in 1880, whilst his wife, Sarah Ann, served their customers. Maynards began in 1896, having expanded its manufacturing, wholesales and retail businesses in these few years.
Wine Gums were first developed in 1909. Devised by Charles Gordon Maynard, the son had difficulty persuading a teetotal Charles Snr. that the sweets did not contain wine. The unique and distinctive flavours have become a staple part of the UK confectionery market where they are todays leading fruit sweet.
This success was built upon in 2001 with the launch of Maynards Wine Pastilles. In addition to these permanent lines, we┬óÔÇÜ┬¼ÔÇ×┬óve seen special appearances from lines such as Reds & Blacks.
Production: The Maynards factory is based in Sheffield, where the Wine Gums have been made since 1991. Prior to this, they were produced in Vale Road, London. In 1996, Maynards was relaunched with new packaging and the Hootsmon┬óÔÇÜ┬¼ÔÇ×┬ó advert, where a Scottish Laird demonstrates how to Set the Joose Loose┬óÔÇÜ┬¼ÔÇ×┬ó by feeding wine gums to a mounted moose head, his bagpipes and even his sporran!
The cult television ad was re-aired in 2008, much to the delight of fans young and old encouraging you to chew!
