UK Sponge Candy Or Foam Candy Has Arrived

Foam Candy, Sponge toffee and cinder toffee are the terms used to describe the British and Canadian equivalents of American sponge candy. The British started producing sponge candy as early as 1913 in Beamish, a village located in northwestern England's Durham county. Cooks and bakers used copper pans and an open fire when making the earliest forms of British sponge candy.

SAUSSINE Company of Paris France. Leon Saussine

Many of my Patrons wish to know more about my website and card illustrations.
So I am happy to give credit where it is due. Most of Candy Babel's graphics are inspired by the
SAUSSINE Company of Paris France: Leon Saussine was the creator and producer of a wide variety of games including race games, strategy games, puzzles, card games, questions and answer games, games of skill and shooting, and shadow theatre. He exhibited at the world fair in 1878 as an educational and parlor games publisher. The company continued after his death in 1896 into the early 1900's run by his widow and then his sons
Saussine's patel captures a sense of 20 nostalgia and old world charm Candy Babel aims to offer.
Candy Babel has recently become the proud owner of 10 Original Game Prints,  Soon on display 
 @ 1237 NE Alberta Street.

"Whatever we do, Lets make it fun!"

Make your Easter!

Can't Help from Smiling!

Blue Robbin's Eggs filled with Carmel Bliss!
Pictured here in a lovely
Blue Bird Toffee Tin
Personally I have been collecting these tins for years, each on is a work of art!
Blue Bird Toffee  is a brand of toffee, founded in Worcestershire, England, in 1898 by Harry Vincent. Vincent had similar ideas to Cadbury and the Frys with regards to the workplace being a pleasant environment to work.
Vincent's toffee was originally called Harvino, but after watching Maeterlink's play 'The Blue Bird of Happiness' he renamed the product Blue Bird.
Bluebird Toffee left their West Midlands site in October 1998, and the company now trade in Hull as part of Needler's.
Needler's changes name after acquiring Blue Bird to become Needler Bluebird. In 2002 Needler Bluebird was purchased by Ashbury Confectionery and discontinued all lines previously made by Needler's and Blue Bird.
Ashbury donated the company's collection of historic Blue Bird packaging to the Black Country Living Museum.
