Candy-tasting at LollyTalk - NEW flavours launched!

Sponsored Advertorial:

Just this week, I was invited to a Candy-tasting session at LollyTalk. I'm actually a fan of handmade candies, just couldn't indulge in them anymore after putting on Invisalign. But I still love eating them!! Other than the pretty and amazingly complicated designs (Don't forget its handmade!!!), these candies taste really flavourful and yummy as well! I would definitely get 1 bottle for myself to bring to school if not for my braces!! 

Always a good way to keep myself awake during class!

Keep reading because you'll get to find out more about their pre launch of new flavours! Minty, spicy, or something soothing for your throat? Choose your pick!


I was greeted with shelves of colourful candies and lollipops. It's like walking into a candyland, and this reminded me of Sugar Rush in Wreck-it Ralph if you guys caught that movie!! Lychee, Lemon, Cranberry, Grape, Soursop, many flavours that you can think of! There's sure to be something that you like!

So let me tell you more about LollyTalk and its origin! 
"We are a homegrown candy maker from Singapore that makes our own rock candies fresh from scratch as all our candies are handmade. At LollyTalk, we are committed to making the best tasting quality candies and hence we are constantly on the lookout for new flavours to improve the taste of our candies. In addition, our candies can be customised for special occasions such as weddings and birthdays. 
We secured an apprenticeship with Ross and Judy, who were the undisputed leaders in candy-making in Queensland. The couple won the title Grand Champion Rock Candy as well as multiple awards at the 2009 Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards, Australia’s premium fine food event that is held annually to give recognition to outstanding producers in the Australian fine food industry, including all its major candy and dessert makers. Being the Grand Champion of rock candy, Ross and Judy were awarded the gold medal for their fruit rock mix, silver medal for lollypops and bronze medal for design candy."
I've tasted them and it's really of great standard! Love it when sweet shops come out with new and innovative flavours. It's always good to try something unique and completely different. 


When I reached the place, they were preparing the candies, so I just stood and watch them. There's a glass panel separating the "kitchen" and the stall so customers can actually have a good view of what's happening in there. When they're done with the candies, they would pass around to let everyone try some free samples!! 

It's a pity that I cannot view the whole process from the start till the end!!




The melted candy is usually pulled into long strips before being cut into smaller pieces.


Watch the video to see how they make the candies! Sorry that I could only video the part where the candy is pulled and chopped into small pieces ): And btw, that isn't me talking in the video!!!



Check our their Chef Recommendation - 200g Fruit Rock Mix

This is perfect for people like me, who cannot decide on which flavours to pick and just love having surprises! Just open the jar, grab one and pop into your mouth. Then start guessing which flavour is it. Also great if you do not know which flavour to start with. 


Here's their fizzy drinks theme - Cola, Sarsi, Cream soda, etc. Would love to try this some day.


If you did not know, I LOVE SOUR SWEETS. My friends always think I'm crazy for pouring the sour powder into my mouth after finishing the sweets. But ohmygodddd sour sweets are the best! The more sour the better! And at LollyTalk, there's 3 different levels of sourness to suit different taste buds. I'm definitely going for the highest level - No. 3!! When I tasted it, I was like OMG :000 NICE! They might be coming out level 4 using Pillow sweets.

Pillow sweets are made by machine and therefore more flavour can be embedded into the centre of the sweet. This allows more sour powder to be placed in the sweet and who knows! They might really be coming out with LEVEL 4!!


For Candy Crush addicts! (Ahemmm.. like meee..) You can get this limited edition flavour which is the Candy Crush theme! Omg CANDY CRUSH SWEETS. Okayyy I should maintain myself :3 But look at the design! There's the cherry fruit, striped sweets and packet sweets. 


They even offer small jars of candies if you do not want to buy so much. The bottle size is so small that it looks really cute! You can buy it as a souvenir too!





Moving on to the NEW flavours that is launched just today! Was given 7 flavours to taste and I was then asked to rate which is my favourite flavour. I'll be naming them according to my taste preference.

Plum Guava
*MY FAVOURITE*
I like guava taste so much! I doubt I'll like plum usually, but this complements really well with the guava. And it's not too sweet, just nice for me! Nom nommmm :>


Menthol Grape
A very unique mint flavour. When I popped it into my mouth, what I tasted was strong grapes sweetness, but as the layers unfold, the menthol flavour start to fill in and it gave me a very refreshing feeling. Even my breath will felt fresher after that!


Spicy Mango
Wow, I've never tasted sweets that have chilli flavour. For a moment, I had to remind myself that I'm tasting a sweet. Just that this is a spicy sweet. Anyway, who said that sweets cannot taste spicy? It's up to your imagination!


Honey Lemon
Like lozenges, this gives a very soothing feeling. Now you can have sweets even when your throat isn't feeling well! Boyf tasted this and he is loving this so much. Oh and did I mention that this candy is made from NATURAL honey and lemon extract? Now you know why you can have this while you're sick!!


Menthol Honey Lemon
Really tasted like menthol. Refreshing and minty. A little too spicy for me in the centre as there's more menthol embedded into the pillow candy. But good for sore throats too!


Chilli Lime
Similar to the one which is mango-flavoured, this is made from Chilli as well. The only difference that this tasted more sour due to the lime. Like Sambal Chilli with lime. Recommended for those who love hot and spicy food!


Who will ever think of such a different and unique sweet concept! Something that differentiates LollyTalk from other candies is that they are more flavoured and they are definitely better in terms of innovation!

Got to bring home some candies of my favourite flavours too!
