Vidal Candies, Spain's largest candy manufacturer, opened in 1963 and started filling a need in the market for jelly and marshmallow candies. In the late 70s Vidal got into manufacturing licorice with a new, unique process that created a more intense flavor. They created licorice bricks, still a popular style of licorice today. Later it introduced fruit marshmallows, a product type that remains popular to today. It also started producing soft candies filled with other substances: gum with effervescent fillings, liquid-filled bubble gum, and jelly-filled gummy candies. These products make up the core of Vidal's product lineup, which grows every year. Every once in a while they come up with something quite interesting and unique, such as their gummy chicken feet.
