Nerds are a popular brand of sweets known for their small, irregularly shaped, colourful pieces. They were first introduced by the Willy Wonka Candy Company, which is now owned by Ferrera. Nerds are characterized by their tart and sweet flavour combinations, and they come in a variety of fruity flavours. Here are some key points about Nerds candy:

  1. Flavour Variety: Nerds are available in numerous flavours, such as strawberry, grape, watermelon, cherry, lemonade, and more. Some packages even contain dual-chamber boxes with two different flavours.

  2. Texture: Each Nerd is essentially a tiny, hard, and crunchy piece of candy. They are usually coated in a thin, colourful sweets shell.

  3. Packaging: Nerds are typically sold in small boxes or in larger shareable video boxes. The boxes are often divided into two compartments, each containing a different flavour.

  4. Nerds Ropes: In addition to the traditional small boxes, there is also a product called "Nerds Ropes," which is a chewy, gummy rope covered in Nerds candies. It combines the flavours and textures of Nerds with a stretchy gummy candy.

  5. History: Nerds were first introduced in the 1980s and quickly gained popularity among candy lovers. They are known for their quirky and playful advertising campaigns.

  6. Variations: Over the years, Nerds has released various limited-edition flavours and special holiday-themed versions of their candy.

  7. Ingredients: The primary ingredients in Nerds include sugar, dextrose, corn syrup, and artificial flavours and colours. It's important to note that Nerds contain a high amount of sugar and are considered a sugary treat.

Nerds are a fun and nostalgic candy that appeals to people of all ages. They are often enjoyed by themselves or used as a topping for ice cream, cupcakes, and other desserts. However, as with any candy, it's essential to consume them in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

These sweets are imported from the USA and available in South Africa from Sweet City for delivery nationwide. Visit
