About Us

This site sells the Caring Candies-branded products (the candies and chocolates with the big pink heart logo), which we MANUFACTURE, as well as OTHER BRANDS and products, which complement our target market's "No Nasty Stuff" and "Free From" healthy lifestyle. All the products on this site are FREE FROM sugars, gluten, artificial ingredients and are either low in nett carbs or have zero nett carbs.

How it all started...

In 2003, I (Denise) was put on a very restrictive eating plan by my homeopath, which excluded (among other things) sugar, gluten, and dairy. Unfortunately all the sugar-free product available were full of artificial ingredients and made me feel even WORSE.
Sooooo....out of sheer desperation at the lack of HEALTHY Sugar-Free treats available worldwide (believe me, we looked), we set about making our own - in our kitchen - at home!!!

But we didn't stop there! In 2008 we decided to open a physical factory shop and an online store.
Skip ahead 17 years and we now make healthy sugar-free candies and chocolates WITHOUT ANY NASTY STUFF from our factory in Montague Gardens, Western Cape, South Africa.

Did you know that Caring Candies were the "Featured Business of the Week" on KFM94.5 when Banting just started to become popular?
