A new lustre popping candy inclusion from Pecan Deluxe Candy, the European inclusions specialist, is designed to give bakery products a golden shimmer. 

The new milk chocolate-coated popping candy from Pecan Deluxe is finished with a gold or red metallic sheen, and is the latest addition to the company’s existing range of inclusions.

Lustre popping candy can be supplied in various bag sizes and bulk options, and is available in a choice of individual 3mm pieces or ‘multi-pop clusters’.

The company said: “The sector is showing significant interest in popping candy, with clusters a popular choice to liven up old favourites on retailers’ shelves.”

Graham Kingston, Pecan Deluxe’s managing director, said: “The key for this sector is to provide a luxury experience that can be positioned at a more profitable price point, thus improving margins – and specifying gold lustre popping candy is one simple and very effective way of achieving that.

In March, Pecan Deluxe invested in new premises.
