History of Tart ‘n’ Tiny Candy
Tart ‘N’ Tiny was first produced by the famous Willy Wonka Candy Company, which Breaker Confections founded in 1971. In the beginning, they were tiny pellets of tart candy that looked like chalk and would come in a small box with a small tab through which you can get candy out every time you want to eat.
Tart ‘N’ Tiny was one of the highest-selling candies of Wonka company in the 80s, but for some reason, they decided to discontinue the candy in the 1990s. In 1988, Nestle bought Breaker Confections. They tried to re-introduced Tart ‘N’ Tiny; this time, it didn’t have the old, hard, chalky texture; the new version was very soft and chewy. The coatings were kept the same, but the core was chewy. But just like before, this newer version was also discontinued by Nestle.
But then suddenly, Leaf Brands decided to launch Tart ‘N’ Tiny in their original form in 2015, in the way they were produced for the first time. They did make some changes and introduced new flavors like cherry, Lemon, Lime, blue raspberry, orange, and grape.
