Watermelon slices are a triangular shaped jelly lolly, coloured to resemble a slice of watermelon. They have a good watermelon flavour and are coated with grain sugar which sometimes has a slightly sour taste.
The original watermelon slices I had from the UK were very sour and proved not as popular as the Spanish made ones that are currently available. Watermelon slices are the most popular fruit base lolly I have ever sold – in the first three days of having them here I sold over 3kg.
You will get 18 watermelon slices in 100g and they contain glucose syrup, sugar, water, gelatine, modified starch, citric acid, tartaric acid, flavours, colours. They are suitable for gluten, dairy and nut free dietary constraints/choices.
Watermelon has become a popular flavouring for lollies – we have the slices, melon clouds (taste more like rockmelon to me) and rock candy. Watermelon is thought to have originated in southern Africa, where it is found growing wild. Evidence of its cultivation in the Nile Valley was found from the second millennium BC. Watermelon seeds have been found at Twelfth Dynasty sites and in the tomb of PharaohTutankhamun. By the 10th century, watermelons were being cultivated in China, which is today the world’s single largest watermelon producer, followed by Turkey, Iran, Brazil and USA. A watermelon contains about 6% sugar and 91% water by weight. As with many other fruits, it is a source of vitamin C.
