CARAMAC? was originally created by Mackintosh’s and since it launch over 50 years ago in 1959 it has been a mainstay of the confectionery fixtures across the UK.
The name is a combination of ‘Caramel’ and ‘Mackintosh’ and was determined through a competition held by the management team at Mackintosh’s for their workers at the factory in Norwich.
Since launch CARAMAC? has been proudly produced in the UK, initially it was produced at the Mackintosh’s factory in Norwich, then in 1996 production moved to Newcastle where the bar still continues to be manufactured to this day.
Within the UK confectionery market CARAMAC? has a unique flavour and texture profile due to it containing no cocoa.
Whilst it has a hardcore following of fans, its classic caramel flavour also ensures that the brand has broad appeal. Furthermore it is particularly appealing to those with intolerances to cocoa and gluten,
CARAMAC? continues to be packaged in its distinctive retro red and yellow wrappers, there is considerable nostalgia surrounding this well loved brand.
