Mulled Wine Candies

This Unique Candy Flavor Reminds of Brewed Red Wine and Winter Spices

— January 5, 2016 — Lifestyle
In the spirit of Christmas, Squish Candies released a fun candy flavor that channels a beverage that's traditional to German Christmas markets.

The festive Mulled Wine candy takes the form of a star-shaped gummy. Although the sweet treat looks deceptively simple, the candy takes cues from a number of complex seasonal flavors, including brewed red wine, cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, as well as fresh citrus. Rather than being consumed in the form of a beverage, this chewy snack offers a mess-free way to indulge in these sweet holiday flavors on the go.

The drink-inspired treat from Squish Candies can be purchased individually, or enjoyed as part of a 'Holiday Selection' assortment alongside other fun holiday flavors like gummy bears that taste like fruit-flavored prosecco.
