Cleeve’s Confectionery is an Irish brand that is much loved and well-known from years previous which has now returned to the shelves after 30 years.
All of Cleeve’s products are produced in Newbridge and carry the Guaranteed Irish logo to reflect that they are manufactured in Ireland, something of a rarity in the confectionery industry these days.
Cleeve’s range consists of hanging bags and bars. The hanging bags include Iced Caramel’s, Original Toffee, Chocolate Caramels, Original Fudge, Macaroon Bites and Irish Golden Days. The bar range includes Macaroon, Sea Salt Caramel Crisp, Mint Crisp with three new additions Classic Milk Chocolate, Classic Dark Chocolate and Honey Crisp. The Original Slab Toffee has also been relaunched and a treat sized box of Iced Caramels.
The Cleeve’s branding gives a nod to its vintage roots – the logo very similar to the original from 120 years ago. The bright colours of the hanging bags pop, they can be placed on hooks or are shelf ready in their box. The bars have a Willy Wonka likeness to them and a retro look to appeal to all ages.
Cleeve’s is exclusively distributed by Ampersand. Ampersand are experts in the convenience sector and have steadily extended their snacking and confectionery portfolio in the last few years.
Best known for slab toffee which was produced in Limerick from the late 1800s, the product was exported all over the world and is fondly remembered as being an integral part of Ireland’s confectionery industry for most of the 20th century. Today, the new confectionery line has some new additions featuring a range of hanging bags and bars.
The Cleeve’s range of bars has been extended for consumers who want something a little different. The range includes Original Macaroon, Sea Salt Caramel Crisp, Mint Crisp, Classic Milk Chocolate, Classic Dark Chocolate and Honey Crisp. Priced at €1 for a 50g bar, the bars have been a huge hit on the Irish market.
There is also a range of 6 hanging bag lines with an RSP of €2. The range consists of the classic lines, Iced Caramel’s, Original Toffee, Chocolate Caramels and Original Fudge with some new exciting additions Macaroon Bites and Irish Golden Days.
