After seeing the demand for sugar confectionery in Ireland, Ampersand created our own brand of sweets and launched Sonas Sweets. The word "Sonas" comes from the Irish word meaning happiness and this confectionery range brings a little happiness and sunshine to Irish consumers every day!
Sonas Sweets consists of a variety of premium jellies and sweets with a €1 hanging bag range and a €2 mix-up of classic favourites and unusual jellies, all packaged in bright, colourful and cheerful packaging.
Ampersand also re-launched and invested into the Cleeve's Irish Confectionery brand. Cleeve's is an iconic Irish brand fondly remembered as being an integral part of Ireland’s confectionery industry for most of the 20th century. Much to consumers' delight, Ampersand brought the brand back to Irish retail shelves after a 30-year absence.
Today, Cleeve's is produced in Newbridge, Kildare and Ampersand's range features a selection of confectionery hanging bags and chocolate bars. The vintage Cleeve's branding remains with a logo very similar to the original from 120 years ago.
