For many years GIBBS have claimed that they make the Rolls Royce of boiled sweets. Few people in and out of the trade would disagree with that view. If you like your boiled sweets to have real flavour and at the same time have them available to you perfectly formed with stripes and designs in perfect symmetry, then your choice has to be GIBBS.
GIBBS famous boiled sweets are produced fresh, daily at a factory located on the banks of the river Clyde in Greenock by highly skilled craftsmen. The combination of real flavour and perfect design sets Gibbs appear from most of the market.
Hawick Balls are now also made at the Greenock factory. The recipe has been a closely guarded secret for years, some 100 years old. It is still a secret today. Hawick Balls have that lovely buttery peppermint flavour; a blend captured by them, which is the envy of many.
