Maxons has been making quality confectionery since 1927, while Dixons which is now owned by Maxons has been doing so since the 1880s. Still based in Sheffield today and run by the 3rd generation of the Pitchfork family who took Maxons over in the 1950s. Maxons still produces to the same recipes and standards as they always have, and in keeping with this since 2009 Maxons now make 99% of their products with no artificial colours or flavours (this product being one of them). Maxons Yorkshire Mixture is an iconic Maxons product. If you are a Yorkshire based boiling house you should make a Yorkshire Mixture but Maxons don’t just make ‘a’ Yorkshire Mixture they make ‘the’ Yorkshire Mixture. A mixture of some of the finest Fruit Rock available, fruit flavoured Fish, Pear Drops, fruit flavoured and mint Humbugs, this is Yorkshire Mixture the way a Yorkshireman likes it, full of flavour and with products you would recognise. Maxons have taken us all a step back in time to package their famous old sweets in a Victorian Style plastic jar which is ideal for gifts or to have on your desk at work or on a coffee table at home and share with everyone who needs to know how an old fashioned boiled sweet should taste.
