Millions candy is a collection of small, almost round-shaped starburst balls. The candy is native to Britain and is offered in nine fruity, juicy, and sour flavors. It is chewy, but a little effort is required to bite into the tiny candy since it is so small.
According to their website, Millions is the original candy with this texture and flavors. They warn people about copycats who manufacture similar candy but are unable to imitate their authentic taste.
Millions candy has nine flavors: strawberry, cola, bubblegum, apple, raspberry, blackcurrant, iron brew, banana, and Vimto. All the flavors are suitable for vegetarians.
What Does Millions Candy Taste Like?
Millions candy is colorful, sweet/tangy, and chewy—a perfect candy for kids and adults to satiate their sugar cravings. You are intrigued by the colors that promise a lip-smacking taste of that flavor before you even pour a handful of these beads into your palm.
Pink for strawberry, purple for blackcurrant, and so on—these vibrant tiny beads of sweetness are the right choice for a quick, sugary snack!
The Millions candy is made using these ingredients: glucose syrup, sugar, fruit juice (3% concentrated strawberry, apple, orange, raspberry, or lemon juice), hydrogenated coconut oil, starch, citric acid, gelling agent, flavoring, color (E160e and E162), and emulsifier.
History of Millions Sweets
Douglas Rae, a Scottish businessman, was the brains behind Millions candy. He was the head of Golden Casket Confectionery Corporation and Greenock Morton. Golden Casket is a company famous for Millions candy and Buchanan’s Toffees.
In 1990, Douglas Rae came up with the idea of a tiny, sweet, colorful, round-shaped candy. He named this creation “Millions.” The candy has been available in various flavors from the beginning, and almost all of them were an instant hit.
Golden Casket did not only rely on Millions’ taste to attract more customers—they invested their time, effort, and money into marketing and promotion. Millions could have been a candy from Britain known only to locals, but due to the efforts of Golden Casket and their staff, it became a brand worth over £11M.
