Ten Products Containing Caramel and Natural Colours (Part Two)
In Part One, we asked our salespeople here at DDW to list some of the many naturally coloured food and beverage products. Here is part two of that same list of foods, drinks and candies that contain caramel colour or natural colours. See if your favorite product makes the list:
6. ARCOR Blow Up! Bubble Gum
Argentina-based confectionary producer ARCOR makes bubble gum that is coloured using natural colours, as stated on the front of each bag.

The company’s Blow Up! product is a candy-coated bubble gum with delicious fruity flavors and a liquid center that bursts in your mouth upon chewing the gum.

7. Nestle Smarties
Nestle Smarties contain “no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.” The ingredient label states that Nestle Smarties use fruit and vegetable concentrates. Smarties are coloured using natural sources including safflower, radish, black carrots, lemon, hibiscus, and red cabbage.

This candy is very popular globally. If Nestle can switch this popular global product to natural colours instead of synthetics, then nearly any hard candy product could potentially be switched!

8. SoBe Life Water
SoBe Life Water is a product that is probably familiar to many of you. Perhaps some of you even drink it on a daily basis!

9. La Cure Gourmande
La Cure Gourmande makes products that are good inside and out; their delicious products are naturally coloured and beautifully packaged in a way that strives to provide the quality and “emotional attachment” of old-fashioned, handmade products.

Available in many regions around the world, DDW associates often see these products at airports when we travel and remark at the gorgeous packaging. The beautiful designs are reminiscent of a “keepsake” or “giftbox” presentation. La Cure Gourmande produces chocolate-covered olives that are coloured with copper chlor green and carmine; caramels de qualite and other gourmet chocolate foods.
10. Boddingtons Bitter
One product closely affiliated with DDW in England is Boddingtons Bitter, which was originally advertised as “the Cream of Manchester.”

Orginally brewed in Manchester (Strangeways) but currently brewed in Magor Wales by AB InBev, this “smooth and creamy” ale uses DDW beer-stable caramel colour to give full clarity to its wonderful golden brown glow. Next time you’re in the UK, look for it at a pub!
BONUS 11th Product: Cola Coloured with Caramel
By the way, as a supplier of caramel colouring for the largest soft drink companies in the world, we couldn’t resist listing cola as a “bonus” eleventh product.
Any products you’d like us to add?
Were you already familiar with these products? Did your favorite product make the list? Of course, this is just a tip of the iceberg in the world of natural colours and caramel colouring! In fact, it was very difficult narrowing it down to just ten products for this list.
