Double Dip is a confectionery produced by Swizzels Matlow, where it has been popular in the United Kingdom, Australia and Germany. Towards the end of the 1980s Double Dip hit its peak of popularity when the sherbet based confection became the best selling sweet in Ireland.
The sweet is suitable for coeliacs, vegans and vegetarians. The manufacturer gives the ingredients as "sugar, dextrose, acidity regulators, citric acid, malic acid, cornflour, sodium bicarbonate, modified starch, stearic acid, anticaking agent, magnesium carbonate, magnesium stearate, flavourings, colours: beetroot red, curcumin, lutein."
The idea for the product came from the company's desire to create a product that was distinct, unique, and interactive.
