Made in Candy, a franchise from Singapore, is Asia's first independent candy kitchen. Here in the Philippines, Made in Candy can be found in Rockwell Powerplant, SM Megamall, Alabang Town Center, Glorietta 4 and SM Mall of Asia.

Each candy variety is designed and handcrafted by Candy craftsmen, who delight customers flocking around the store watching them make the candies to the beat of modern, hip music. When you think about it, they are artists because it takes a lot of imagination and skill to mold a candy into a design you like.

Over the years, MADE IN CANDY has customized simple to elaborate candies that delights kids and kids at heart not only with the designs but with the yummy taste as well. My kids and I had fun trying out the different designs and guessing what flavor it is - kiwi, raspberry, lychee, orange etc.  They have 38 flavors and they currently have 40 standard designs and customized designs according to the holiday.  Trick or treat themed candies? Father's day inspired candies?  Christmas candies?

MADE IN CANDY can customize your own candy too!  Just remember to place your orders 2 weeks in advance.  These candies would surely delight birthday and wedding guests:-)You may get in touch with them through the MADE IN CANDY FB page.

As for our fun, fun candy making experience ...

First they boil the candy mixture and once it has reached the right temperature they pour it on their specially heated table for color mixing. Once color has been mixed, you mold the candies much like how you would in clay. After which you lay it on the heated table to ensure it doesn't dry up and harden.

MADE IN CANDY philippinesSince we were beginners, we made an easy rainbow designed candy. We layered our different colored candy which were still on the moldable form to make a rainbow. Once our rainbow is formed, we enveloped it in white candy and finished it off by enveloping it once again on the colorful striped candy which will ultimately form the outer layer of the candy.

MADE IN CANDY PHILIPPINESOur cool and friendly candy men, Aaron and Jim, then stretched our rainbow candy to the right thickness and cooled it on a separate, non-heated table where the candy will eventually harden and will soon be ready for chopping into those sweet, delicious candies we find in every MADE IN CANDY jar.  Tadah!  Our very own MADE IN CANDY!

Thanks MADE IN CANDY for our awesome candy making experience! My kids and I enjoyed every minute!
