- What age limit is there to eating these sweets?
There is no age restriction to who can have these sweets. We recommend 4+ simply due to the sweets being a choking hazard for very young children.
In regards to the alcohol, the products are heated to over 240° so while they taste absolutely amazing and alike the drink itself. The alcohol added to the mix is evaporated so the final product has a 0% APV.
- Does this also mean pregnant ladies can have them?
Absolutely, pregnant women are deprived of their alcohol for 9 whole months – this is a solution to still taste the alcohol but not actually be affecting the baby at all.
We also cater for Baby Showers!

- What is the use by date on the sweets?
From manufacturing the sweets have a recommended 18 month life span. To find out the exact best before date, take a look at the bottom of the product’s description on each product page.
- What is the difference between a best before date and a sell by date?
A best before date, which is what our product have, is a recommended date showing the length of time a food will be at its best quality. After this date the food is still edible and usually will taste the same, in the case of candy the texture could become slightly chewier. However a use by date states the time up to which the food is safe to eat, therefore stores cannot sell out of date items and it is not recommended to eat them at all.
