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.[1] 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.[2]

The range was initially distributed in Coffee Republic and then Harvey Nichols[1] 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.
