Chewy, fruity gum sweets. Charles Riley Maynard began producing sweets with his brother Tom in 1880, whilst his wife, Sarah Ann, served their customers. Maynards began in 1896, having expanded its manufacturing, wholesales and retail businesses in these few years. Wine Gums were first developed in 1909. Devised by Charles Gordon Maynard, the son had difficulty persuading a teetotal Charles Snr. that the sweets did not contain wine. The unique and distinctive flavours have become a staple part of the UK confectionery market where they are todays leading fruit sweet.
