Packaging sucksess for Gobstopper.

Tidmans Confectioners of Guilford, who also trade under the Confidential Candy Company, have developed an old favourite, the gobstopper. Two new lines; the Sour Bomb and the Sour Pus are designed to appeal to the gruesome sense of humour of youngsters. Also described by Tidmans as 'something different', the packaging had to reflect this.

National Flexible came in and designed a pillow-wrap, black for the Sour Bomb and orange for the orange-flavoured Sour Pus, printed in six different colour combinations.

The Sour Bomb is a traditional gobstopper whereas the Sour Pus is the only sweet of its kind with a squeezable liquid centre.
