Dare Candy Co. Brings Canadians a Sweet Summer!

It’s no surprise that a recent national survey revealed 62% of Canadians have a sweet tooth – maybe that’s how we earned our naturally sweet reputation. Knowing that candy is top-of-mind for Canadians this summer, Dare Candy Co. has answered the call with a mobile treats truck hitting Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. Canadians will have the chance to sample the sweets they so desire, and Dare’s diverse offering is guaranteed to satisfy the sweet tooth in everyone.

Candy has been an important part of Dare’s journey to find better ingredients, better innovation and making better tasting goodies. Looking for candy that’s made with real fruit? Gelatin free? What about candy to satisfy your pomegranate craving, or love for all black jubes? Dare Candy Co. has thought of it all, including lunchbox candy – all of which is peanut free! Just a few examples from Dare’s delicious candy arsenal includes:
