Are you looking to make your haul of American sweets go further? On Taffy Mail Unwrapped – the blog of the UK’s only rolling American candy subscription service – we provide ways of making the contents of your box of candy last even longer!

We here at Taffy Mail like to focus more on the consumption of candy wholesale, rather than baking it into other products. This means that we haven’t developed the skill – or attention span – to cook a traditional New York style baked cheesecake.

­Step forward this delicious non-bake cheesecake with everyone’s favourite small crunchy pieces of American candy: Wonka Nerds:
