Skinny Candy is a confectionery brand, that was founded by Sahar Hashemi, former Coffee Republic founder and entrepreneur in 2005. It was born out of a lack of low sugar and low fat chocolates and sweets available to the British market.
The range comprises five products - two chocolate lines: the Chocstick and Chocmaltie and three portion-sized bags of confectionery treats: Fruity Bears, Cola Bottles and Crispy Bubbles. All products are free from artificial flavourings and colourings and contain 99 calories per pack.
In 2007, Sahar sold 50% of Skinny Candy to Glisten Plc.
The range was initially distributed in Coffee Republic and then Harvey Nichols and is available across many big department store chains throughout the UK such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Top Shop, Julian Graves, Waitrose and most Coffee Republic stores.
