HISTORICAL SUMMARY OF REGAL CROWN SOURS
Regal Crown Sours is like taking a trip down memory lane. Regal’s blend of tartness along with the original old-world recipe, natural colors & flavors and individual wrapping makes them perfection in every piece. Master confectioners in England who were experts in the art of candy making came up with the Regal Crown formula in 1953. Regal was owned and marketed by Murray Allen Imports Inc. of the United States. Trebor, the premier high boil sweets manufacturer of the UK, exclusively manufactured all Regal Crown products in the Chesterfield & Maidstone plants in Derbyshire & Kent England.
In 1966, Trebor won the Queen’s Award, the most prestigious recognition for British Companies that excel at international trade, innovation & sustainable development. Tootsie Roll Industries became the distributor of Regal Crown Sours throughout the entire United States. In the 1960’s The National Confectioner’s Association ranked Regal Crown Sours the sixth best selling candy in the U.S. in all candy classes, ranked just behind the likes of Milky Way, Almond Joy, Snickers & Baby Ruth.
In the 1970’s Broadway Confections teamed up with Trebor to market the Regal Crown brand. Trebor Allen of Canada produced Regal Crown in Granby Quebec. Regal Crown came in many flavors including, Sour Cherry, Sour Lemon, Sour Orange, Sour Apple, Sour Grapes, Sour Raspberry, Sour Fruits & Cool Mints. It was portrayed in James Bond like TV commercials. The tagline of the day was “Tart-N-Tangy”. Reviving the Trebor tradition, Iconic candy Rolls out these individually wrapped sour cherry & sour lemon favorites to the delight of yesterdays and today’s candy fans.
