About company

Our family has been in the confectionery industry for many years and we are passionate about confectionery.

The ‘third generation’ of the family began trading in the North East in 2015, under the Geordie name of  The Canny Candy Gadgies – Canny by name & Canny by nature.

Continually refreshing & invigorating our offering we are really excited to be extending our Canny Candy Gadgie Branded Ranges


In an age of convenience and mass production our Canny Candy Gadgie range consists of sweets that transport you back to bygone days, of childhood memories, a time when sweets were truly treats. Hand crafted, artisan, made the old fashioned way where there is a little alchemy involved, made to traditional recipes with clean ingredients, no hidden nasties, they are a real & proper sweets. We also have award winning products endorsed by The Great Taste Awards.

We engage with customers through food festivals, farmers markets, deli’s, garden centres, department stores & ‘real canny’ independent retailers.
