Sweet treats come in endless unique forms and this is no exception. You can’t use it to scale the wall of a building but Nerds ropes a certainly a tasty treat, a fruity variation of Nerds sweets (see: what are nerds sweets?) but in rope form. That’s right, Nerds on a rope. Like they’re climbing to escape an alien prison somewhere in deep space.
Of all the American sweets we stock, this is one of the more unusual and it comes in rainbow nerds and Very Berry flavours, which you can choose from the drop down before you add it to your basket.
Nerds, the well-known sweets, first appeared in the 1980s and over 4 decades later, they’re still standing strong. They’re one of the favourite sweets and American candy treats that we stock and are purchased in their millions every single year, worldwide.
Nerds themselves are made from sugar, dextrose (a different kind of sugar) and malic acid. They’re coated with corn syrup, which makes up under 2% of them, they’re then flavoured in big batches before being boxed up. They have a sugar crystal core, which is why they’re such a strange shape, this is then coated in something known as ‘Carnauba wax’ or ‘Palm wax.’
Once it has a thick layer of this crunchy and shiny exterior they’re dropped into barrels for flavouring, which is where the magic really happens and they get their fluorescent personalities.
These are then attached to the gummy rope while it’s still warm and sticky enough. Once it’s cooled down, the little guys set in place and put in its packaging. Nerds are not vegan but they are vegetarian.
