Created in Singapore in the year 2009, the idea grew from with our obsession to candy as kids. Growing up meant reliving these childhood memories was to come in a form of making our dream come true in starting Asia’s first independent candy kitchen and sculpting authentic hand-made candies for you. Since then, we have had millions of candies melt on the palates of many of our customers who love the candies we make. To us nothing is more important than the customers who have made us, shaped us and all we’ve created for. Whether these are our usual retail range, small personalized designs or large corporate orders, we make the candy with the same enthusiasm and spunk that make up each MIC Candy craftsman.

interesting candy shop!
Made In Candy's storefront resembles a miniature candy factory. The colourful candies for sale double up as upbeat, eye-catching decorations for the store's walls. Best of all, most of the time there'll be someone making the candy right at the store, and packing them on the spot for sale! It's great fun to watch how they whip the candies into shape, and add colours and patterns to the final product. Furthermore, it's a form of assurance that the candies sold there are mostly freshly made.
If you're looking for a novel gift idea for parties or companies, this is the place to go! Customizations are available, for instance you can request for a logo or initials to be incorporated into the candy design.
A shop... and a gallery.
Being situated at a less crowded lot at Tanjong Pagar road, Made In Candy's Candy Lab first impressed me with their shopfront beaming "come to me". Entering the shop, I was greeted with a warm welcome from all the staff. I scrunitized the packets and glasses of hard candy. They were almost exactly like Sticky. Just as I was about to leave, one of the staff handed me some to taste. They were less sweet than Sticky, which was to my preference.
The large metal island table top in the middle of nowhere caught my eye. The staff knew that I was watching him and started to do some tricks with a grin on his face. It was so captivating, the way he made the candy, it was like a performer with pride and showmanship. This was unlike Sticky where they'd carelessly make candy like a machine, without putting in any effort, probably because they were too used to having many viewers. I asked for permission if I could snap some pictures and they were more than happy about it. I caught photos of the staff professionally drizzling potion-like bottles of bright colourings onto the candy, much like the suaveness of a bartender. I spent 1 hour there, and it was a pleasant gallery cum shop experience for me.
Made In Candy definitely deserves a lot of praise for its staff - they are also extremely welcoming and friendly, and often offer free candy to the customers around the store. They once gave my friend a free lollipop when they found out it was her birthday, and that really impressed me.
Candy-wise, it isn't really that fantastic, it tastes just like other sweets from stores like Sticky. I honestly can't tell the difference between all stores; the only difference to me is the design. I wouldn't really pay so much for a packet of sweets, especially when they don't taste phenomenal.
However, thanks to the great service at Made In Candy, I definitely wouldn't mind buying it for friends or family.
Kind of a not-so-good quality of rock candies here
Made in Candy is a candy store which has a similar concept as compared to Sticky. This was the store which emerged out right after Sticky became popularized in Singapore quite some time ago. However, the candies which they provided for the consumers were slightly different from those seen in Sticky- the texture and the colours used on the candies are of huge difference.
Though they are hand made by their candy artists, I still feel that the texture of the rock candies is slightly off as compared to Sticky. The texture isn’t that smooth and ‘shiny’ and the colours on the candies are of the darker neon range. The taste of the candies was on the high end of the scale, being too sweet, I mean. It just makes me think that the candies itself are of poor quality from what I have expected. The price wise, they are quite expensive in the rock candy confectionary market in Singapore.
On the whole, I would still prefer Sticky as compared to Made In Candy.
Prefer Stickys over this
With Stickys starting the whole concept of handmade candies first, it is inevitable that it becomes a benchmark of comparison when other such brands set up their handmade candy shops. In an attempt to differentiate themselves from the cute and pink-themed Stickys, Made In Candy chose a darker palette of colors to characterize themselves with. It is easily spotted with the dark Science lab lookalike interior. Very different from Stickys.
I am a loyal customer of Stickys and have been buying my rock candies from there. When Made In Candy arrived to the scene, I tried it out and I still prefer Stickys over this brand. Reason being, the taste of Stickys does not feel as artificial as Made In Candy. The flavours variety there is also not as much as Stickys. Although they have cute rock candies like Panda themed ones, I find that the designs are not as well executed *as compared to Stickys* (do I sound like a broken record already?). The candies do not taste too good to me as well, I have no idea why but it is just not as pleasant tasting as Stickys. Service was ok but all in all, I would still stick to Stickys when it comes to handmade candies.
