Orange jelly candy

Orange Jelly Candy are finger-sized sticks of soft jelly candy generally sold in food specialty stores in Hong Kong. A great deal of candy available in Hong Kong are imported from Europe, mainland China, United States and other regions around the world. Orange jelly candy is one of the few that has historically been manufactured locally in Hong Kong.


The 1980s version of the candy came with an ultra thin transparent layer that is basically an edible wrapper. The present day version are just packaged in typical candy wrappers. The candy are made at Smith's confectionery factory at Kwun Tong. The jelly sticks are very soft and sweet. It does not have much of an orange taste despite the name.
