About Us

Arnold and Marlene

Arnold and I started selling candy/licorice three years ago and we are so pleased that we did. We love meeting people from all walks of life and watching them enjoy the delicious and diverse flavours, especially for the first time.

Adults are really just ‘big kids’ when they are sampling the candy and we enjoy giving them samples of the flavours.

We are so fortunate to have our family on board with us and you will often see our daughter-in-law, Kyra, and her amazing family in the vibrant trailer at different events. Sometimes our daughter, Rachel, and her children, Emily and Lucy, from Invercargill are with Arnold or myself lending a helping hand. A family business for sure.

Kyra Dawson

I have an amazing job of working for Exotic Filled Candy and have the stunning looking trailer.

I love to meet new people and see the look on their faces when they see the bright colours and the amazing display of candy and licorice. Everybody’s dream come true.

Adults are a lot funnier than children when they see it. Nobody truly grows up when they see candy. It takes us back to our childhood.

I have an amazing husband, Jock, and three beautiful children, Caleb, Casey and Sharna. You will sometimes see them out on the road with me or trying to get into the candy.

Our Candy

The candy/licorice we sell is approximately 60cm long and we have 36 delicious and diverse flavours – both sweet and sour.

The candy is a specialty range imported from Spain and is filled with sherbet. We also stock some of the finest black and red licorice.

Throughout Europe, the candy has been on sale now for over twenty years but has only come to New Zealand in the last few years.

The stall we setup, as you can see from the photos is vibrant and always looks great at malls, events and markets.

We have both a 3x3m gazebo and a trailer that will fit into a 3x3m site.

Finally and most importantly, our customer service is second to none. We go out of our way to make sure each and every customer is looked after and their needs met.

If you would like us to attend your event or purchase some of the candy and licorice, please feel free to contact us or browse our shop.
