We've added Scottish sweeties to our Chosen by you Scotland range

From today (3rd August) our customers in Scotland can buy traditional Scottish sweeties such as Highlander Toffee, Butterscotch and Edinburgh Rocks.

Chosen by you Scotland confectionery

We’ve added eight confectionary lines to our popular Chosen by you Scotland range – the only own-brand supermarket range of Scottish family favourites.

Other tasty treats in the range include Soor Plooms, Liquorice Whirl, Banana Whirl, Mint Crumbles and Mini Macs.

They are all being produced by Golden Casket Group who already supply branded sweets. The company was established in Greenock in 1959 by Douglas Rae, a qualified banker who had just £100 in his pocket. It now distributes brands such as Millions, Buchanan’s award-winning Toffees and Fudges as well as a range of Fairtrade confectionery.

Susanna Lloyd, our Local buyer for Scotland says: “We regularly talk to our customers in Scotland about what they want to see in our stores and locally-produced products always come out on top. By extending our own range we are demonstrating that we have listened to our customers and we hope they enjoy trying the new tasty treats.”
