They are square, and they are 20 mm (0.79 in) in length and width, and 7 mm (0.28 in) thick, including the packaging. There are several flavours, including lemon, orange, pineapple, raspberry and cherry, indicated by the colour of the packaging (yellow, orange, blue, red, and bright red, respectively), which is characteristic of the sweet. The classic packaging (which measured 6.3 by 4.5 cm) involves the sweet respecting the rectangular shape, with white text showing the sugus name (in lowercase) and the specific flavor (in uppercase), all over the packaging. Within the packaging was a small, white light inner wrapper of 6.3 by 1.9 cm surrounding the sweet preventing adhesion to the outer wrapper, for example at times of excessive heat. The name, though only a brand, became the name of this product. It appeared on the market under other brands, with different names, but all are given the name sugus.
Sugus is sold in Argentina, Belgium, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Spain, South Africa, Namibia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Uruguay and Vietnam. It seems to enjoy great popularity in Asia, although being from Switzerland. The brand's Chinese name used in Hong Kong and China is "瑞士糖", literally meaning "Swiss candy".
