The Natural Confectionery Co
"Marry"
30s
15 August 2011
UK Fruit-Based Confectionery

Another helping of the bizarre campaign that demonstrates how successful advertising only requires accomplished voice actors. In this rather risqué ad, two pieces of confectionery try to discover how their flavour can be combined and are rather shocked by the answer.

Orange
"Popcorn"

It's amazing how iconic this piece of music has become.

"Catonkey"
30s
15 Aug 2011
More agreeably amusing nonsense achieved with stunning simplicity on behalf of the confectionery. One sweetie tells another that he plans to combine with him to create a new bubblegum flavour and, after distracting him with some revolting porcelain, he achieves his aim.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Jiggle"
20s
23 Aug 2010
This is such a brilliant campaign and genuine proof that there isn't always a correlation between engaging advertising and big budgets. Here, the sweeties play musical statues but it turns out that not everyone is on the same page.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Hide And Seek"
20s
16 Aug 2010
More inspired nonsense on behalf of the sweets from the Natural Confectionery Company. During a game of hide and seek, a pineapple sweet hides in the fruit bowl making it rather easy for his opponent but he does give up easily.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Reflection"
20s
1 Feb 2010
Another highly amusing commercial in this excellent series for the Natural Confectionery Co has a pair of the jellied worms chatting away when one is distracted by their reflection... imagining their mirror images to be a pair of lady worms.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Dinosaur"
20s
10 Aug 2009
Another excellent addition to this charming campaign has a bear-shaped piece of confectionery trying to persuade a dinosaur-shaped piece of confectionery that he will turn into a dinosaur if he says 'the natural confectionery company' three times.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"I Heard"
30s
12 Jan 2009
More low-budget genius in this ad for The Natural Confectionery Company... this time there's a very confusing conversation between two of the sweets owing to the tendency of one to constantly interrupt the other. Great voice performances.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Audition"
30s
6 Oct 2008
Another excellent contribution to this terrific campaign takes the form of an interview between a recruiting dinosaur and a snake. The snake wants to join up but finds it anatomically impossible to do all that is asked of him. As before, most of the charm is in the delivery of the amusing script.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Hard Little Bear"
30s
12 Aug 2008
The latest ad in this excellent series has a little bear talking himself up. He explains that we would be mistaken if we thought that he was just a cute little bear as he is, in fact, so hard that he's rip off the head of a dinosaur if he saw one... so you can pretty much guess what happens next.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Bring On The Trumpets"
30s
12 Aug 2008
These commercials are completely insane. But in a good way. This time, a relaxed sweet is contemplating his existence as a wholly natural piece of confectionery when one of the other fruit sweets starts yelling: "bring on the trumpets" over and over again. Nothing can be done to stop him.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Pineapples"
30s
8 Aug 2008
Another in this excellent series has one of the fruity sweeties trying to get some sense out of the pineapple variants. The pineapple, it seems, speak their own language and he cannot understand their replies which only seems to agitate them all the more. Absolutely inspired silliness.

The Natural Confectionery Co
"Jelly Snakes"
30s
4 Aug 2008
Proof that a lack of budget needn't hamper creativity. A dialogue is imagined between two of the sweets contained within a bag of Jelly Snakes. The droll and unenthusiastic vocal performances give it a wryness which raises it well above what might be expected.
