For many children growing up in Northern England, bonfire toffee is one of great treats of Guy Fawkes Night, also known as "bonfire night." As children would gather around bonfires of burning Guy Fawkes effigies, local confectioners would make black treacle candies to sell. It was a special treat for that particular night, and the candy was almost impossible to find afterwards. But today you can enjoy this delicious hard candy year round, thanks to Maxons of Sheffield.
Maxons has been making fine confectionery and boiled sweets since the 1950's, always in Sheffield, England. With a family of candies and brands whose history dates back to the late 19th Century, Maxons prides itself on using the finest products and techniques to produce the very highest quality of confectionary, without artificial flavorings.
