Farmers' market favourite Burnt Sugar has raised its profile in supermarkets across the country.

It already sells 225g tubs at markets and Waitrose, but has now launched five varieties of handmade confectionery for sale into 183 Tesco stores. Original Crumbly Fudge, Chocolate Crumbly Fudge, Toasted Almond Brittle, Coconut Ice and Hot Ginger Crumbly Fudge come in bags, priced at £2.99 each.

It follows the success of its Easter egg, which was sold in Tesco this year.

Founder Justine Cather said the bags were an ideal treat for those who liked to indulge their not-so-serious side.

"Our new range is bright and colourful," she said. "We will always be a premium product, but this listing will now make it easier for sweet-lovers to be able to enjoy the pleasures of classic fudge and caramel."

Burnt Sugar products use Fairtrade sugar from the West Kenyan Outgrowers Co-operative and are made using traditional methods, with fudge beaten by hand.
