    Family-owned Empire Bespoke Foods, a speciality food importer, distributor, and food brand owner, has gained listings for Mike and Ike theatre box candy into Hancock wholesalers and Costco.

    Mega Mix Berry Blast Small box (22g)/ theatre box (120g) – A combination of five mouth-watering flavours including wild berry, blue raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, and peach berry. (RRP: )

    Mega Mix Tropical Typhoon Small box (22g)/ theatre box (120g) – jam-packed with five tropical candies including paradise punch, kiwi-banana, Caribbean punch, strawberry-banana, and mango.

    Mike and Ike Mega Mix 816g bags will also be available in Costco – an explosive combination of 10 delicious fruity, chewy flavours – Caribbean punch, strawberry-banana, paradise punch, grape soda, kiwi banana, mango delight, watermelon, pineapple banana, peach berry, and blue raspberry.

    Mike and Ike were first launched in the 1940s by third-generation family-owned candy manufacturer Just Born, located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

    It is consistently in the Top 5 most purchased sweets in the USA.

    “Empire Bespoke Foods delivers genuine USA candy to the UK retail market via Mike and Ike,” said Benjamin Moody, junior brand manager, USA & Cupboard.

    “Unfortunately, the UK market is plagued with American candy imports from businesses that may be bypassing food hygiene, labelling and traceability laws that can leave a sour taste in consumers mouths.”
