Step into a Candelite store and absorb the rich ambience that envelopes you. Highly recommended is a first stop by the ‘Kiddy Delights’ section for pick ‘n’ mix candies, lollipops, jelly pops, hard candies, marshmallows, jelly beans, cookies and Disney characters’ chocolates. But, if you are to appease the stubborn young teenager at home, move on to ‘Funky Treats’ and its array of liquid candies, rock candies, flavoured mints and a wide variety of sour treats that will crumble any resolve.
Time to visit your parents or a family celebration?

You can also select from an irresistible assortment of dark chocolates in unique flavours including chilli and pepper, and pick ‘n’ mix chocolate coated nuts and fruits.
For the weight-conscious community, the ‘No-Guilt Options’ offer a collection of low calorie, sugar free, all-natural, organic and vegetarian products that provide a non-negotiable reason to indulge. And, for those with a preference for savoury treats, turn to the ‘Snackin Around’ section for its stock of salted nuts, cocktail mixes, pretzels and biscuits, wafers and cookies.
