“Children and adults can enjoy occasional treats – such as lollies or chocolate – as part of a balanced diet and active lifestyle. Confectionery can add enjoyment and pleasure as well as variety to the diet.” Be treatwise – Cadbury

All of Crackles cupcakes are baked to Nana Mac’s (yes my Nana Mac’s) traditional fairy cake recipe that not only contains all natural ingredients but less than half the sugar content of regular cupcakes! We’ve strived to make ingredients as healthy as can without compromising on flavour or quality.

So 2 options are on offer!

A healthier version, less sugar & minimal preservatives which is the regular range on offer.
And a variety that contains less sugar, & no preservatives, additives or colourants for anyone who needs to minimise salicylates or other nasties from their diet due to behavioral issues or strict diets.

For children who are highly allergic ie. Peanuts, treenuts, soy, milk, eggs and wheat – & should not be in contact with any food items – please inform us & we have a special activity with AppleCups Delight so they feel part of creating a character & get to also eat their product too! Parents you can breathe again now!
