Maynards Wine Gums has become a South African staple. Perfect at the cinema, lunchboxes or even just when you’re chilling at home.
In 1909, Charles Gordon Maynard struggled to convince his father, Charles Riley Maynard that wine gums didn’t actually contain wine! Luckily for us, his father bit – excuse the pun – and one of our favourite sweeties were born. Now, South Africans everywhere love getting their hands on a roll of Maynards Wine Gums. Although Maynards was originally manufacturing in the UK, it has since moved to South Africa after being bought by Beacon.
