Thorne's Confectionery are based in Heckmondwike in West Yorkshire and have a single mission, to produce the finest sugar-free sweets in the world. The company's distinctive logo features a mascot called Spot, with the silhouette of a girl telling the little dog: "It's too good for you, Spot."
A long list of sugar-free candies make Thorne's a familiar treat for diabetics, as well as for anyone on a calorie-controlled or carb-controlled diet for health reasons, or for general physical fitness. Some products, e.g. Thorne's sugar-free butterdrops, are also gluten-free, and this makes them suitable for an even longer list of dietary needs.
Thorne's specialise in sugar-free versions of classic candies and boiled sweets like mints, chocolate limes, toffees, rhubarb and custard, pear drops, aniseed drops, sherbet lemons and barley sugars. The brand also produces liquorice toffees, blackcurrant & liquorice, and traditional throat and chest sweets, all of which are popular lines in the winter months.
