A Short but Sweet History…

 

In 1998, during the 135th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, we were astounded at the assortment of merchandise that was available, commemorating not only this event, but the American Civil War in general.  Even with all that variety, we determined to produce a product that would capture the imagination of both re-enactors and spectators…something different, not already available.  Watching the soldiers load for battle showed us that the answer was right before our eyes.  Shortly after that event, we began producing our first candy filled cartridges.  In late 2001, we decided to make our product available to other historical merchants, landmark sites and related gift stores.

 

 

This cardboard merchandiser box comes free with your first order of 100 rounds. The graphic on the backboard tells your customers the story. If you just need the graphic, click here. There are several to choose from to help you bring attention to Cartridge Candy.

 

Cartridge Candy is a facsimile black powder musket cartridge, filled with fruit powder and a gumball – so much better for you than black powder and lead ball. You pour it down your muzzle! The cartridge paper is food-grade double-sided waxed paper.

 

(See ordering/contact page for complete ordering details.)  

 

CARTRIDGE CANDY is priced at 40 cents per round, minimum 100 rounds!

FAQ: WHAT DO CARTRIDGE CANDY, MUSKET BALL CANDY AND BLACK POWDER CANDY TASTE LIKE?

 

Cartridge Candy, as noted comes in four fruit flavours and has the sweet-tart taste of whichever flavour is consumed.  The “musket ball” included is gum in assorted flavours packed at random.

 

Musket Ball Candy is a liquorice flavoured (very) hard candy (don't bite this bullet!).   As it is savoured, it will tend to change colours.  It actually has a basis in history: soldiers in the British Army, serving in the Caribbean Islands during the Napoleonic wars, made a candy mixture of ginger and molasses in musket ball moulds, to relieve the dryness in the mouth associated with the actions of firing black powder weapons.  Which leads us to “Black Powder Candy”…

 

The basic ingredient of Black Powder Candy is a medium course sugar.  It has a resemblance to actual black powder but tastes a whole lot better.  You will be asked if it is liquorice: the answer is “no”.  Black Powder Candy actually has no discernable taste.  It’s much the same as chowing down in the sugar bowl, so it’s ideal for those who are finicky about flavours.
