Wine Gums


Charles Riley Maynard started his business in 1880 by producing confections in a kitchen with his brother Tom in Stamford Hill, London, while his wife Sarah Ann served the customers. Maynard’s sweets grew steadily and was launched as a company in 1896. Maynard’s Wine Gums were introduced in 1909 by Maynard’s son Charles Gordon Maynard. It took Charles Gordon Maynard some time to persuade his strict Methodist and teetotaller father that the sweets did not contain wine, after which the father accepted that the candy was to be marketed as an alternative to alcohol.


A long established sweet, Wine Gums continue to be a popular choice for all ages but especially those on the look out for retro sweets. They are soft and chewy with unfortunately, no wine at all in them!

You can get your hands on these as:

  • a 100g  ‘Grab Bag’ cellophane cone,
