So, are Jolly Ranchers worth it? My goodness yes! They are one of the biggest-selling candy brands and are a big hit with Oh Sweetie customers too.
Jolly Rancher – a Short History
The Jolly Rancher name was first launched on May 28th, 1949, by Bill and Dorothy Harmsen. Despite being adored and enjoyed the world over, The Jolly Rancher Company wasn’t initially a hard candy maker, but was originally launched as an ice cream store in the city of Golden, Colorado, USA. After learning the hard way that ice cream sold poorly during the winter, the company expanded its range.
They soon hit on a cinnamon-flavoured hard sweet that became an instant hit, laying the groundwork for the many flavours and varieties of hard candy, gummies and sours to come. By the late 1950s, Jolly Ranchers were a household name in the USA. Fast forward to 1995 and Jolly Ranchers went on sale in the UK for the first time, becoming an instant hit and sweetening the memories of a whole generation.
Why We Love Jolly Rancher
There’s just so much to love about Jolly Rancher sweets. We love their bright colours, sumptuous fruity flavours, and long-lasting taste. With iconic flavours such as Green Apple, Cherry, Grape, Watermelon and Blue Raspberry, they’re perfect for a sweet treat while travelling, at work, or while watching a movie – and their nostalgic hit of cross-Atlantic sweetness always brightens our day.
Many have fond memories of eating Jolly Ranchers as children, sharing them with friends and family or receiving them as a treat. Do you remember the fun of trying to make the hard sweets last as long as possible by sucking on them as slowly as possible?
Oh Sweetie customers love the newer additions to the range too - especially Jolly Rancher gummies with their soft and chewy texture. Or perhaps you go for the Jolly Rancher sours, for a sharper, more intense hit of time-tested flavour.
