Here are 3 sugary shares you can find on the ASX.
Shares for chocolate lovers
Candy Club Holdings Ltd (ASX: CLB)
While not necessarily a chocolate making company, Candy Club deserves its spot on this list.
To be honest, a lolly subscription service is genius. And, experts do say to invest in companies you understand. I’m sure most Australians would understand the appeal of a box of lollies arriving on your doorstep each month.
Candy Club’s selection of adorable sugary treats, some of which are indeed chocolate, may well be your next great investment.

Keytone Dairy Corp Ltd (ASX: KTD)
Milk chocolate is a favourite for many come Easter time, and this dairy company has got you covered in more ways than just milk.
Keytone Dairy is the owner of fudging making brand, Gran’s. Gran’s promises delicious, handcrafted, luxury fudge. If that doesn’t sound like an Easter Sunday afternoon snack, I don’t know what does.
