21 March - 20 April
You are adventurous, ambitious, impulsive, enthusiastic and full of energy. That's on the positive side. On the dark side you get grumpy, moody and quick-tempered if you don't get your way. Know what we think? We think it's a lack of energy - being such an energetic spirit a pack of whirly pops might just carry you through a seriously mundane moment - give you stamina to persevere your superior's opinions at work and rush home to the warmth of family and friends.

The colour of Aries is red. Plenty of red in our sweets, but if you just want red on the taste buds, might need to get some mint bon bons. No arguments, trust us.Being natural leaders, make an example. Heck, buy the whole office some Shooga Shooga magic, set the trend and let NO ONE stand in your way of an energetic giggle and dance in your day.

You share you sign with the likes of Charlie Chaplin (Comedian 1900's) and Hans Christian Anderson (the bloke who wrote Hansel and Gretel - house made of sweets, nudge nudge...) and Vincent Van Gogh ( Artist). So what are we trying to say? Be your sweet demanding self, do it your way and let the others meekly follow.

21 April - 21 May
You are reasonably stable, like beautiful things and are reluctant to change. Yip, that's the positive side. On the dark side, you hate being rushed, disrupted and have moments of intense rage. Mmmm - we're just wondering…Our yum yum's are pretty to look at and only changes when you eat them! They hate being rushed,and like being savored slowly although the occasional crunchy moment has been noted while babbling away with your creative and often eccentric friends.

We know you don't like debt and spending, so a pack of Shooga Shooga lollies will fit the bill ( pardon the pun) just perfectly. Your star sign colour is pink, and that is you in a nutshell. All strong and focussed on the outside but soft and pink on the soul side. Your taste for all things beautiful - the good things of life - pleasure, comfort, luxury and good food and wine may lead to over indulgence. Best to keep it simple sweet bull. Get our heart combo - one for you and (we know this is difficult) - one for someone you love…come one, take the plunge!

You share your sign with some seriously deep people. We are talking Sigmund Freud (Psychologist) and Leonardo Da Vinci. So what are we trying to say? Focus on the "now" - the sweetest moment and savor every creative, tummy yummy moment with great delight, and you'll be well on your way.

gem
 

May 22 - June 21
You are lively, happy, love new projects and love cerebral (the stuff between the ears) challenges. Yip, you love to think, and are good at it. Your mental agility and energy give you a voracious appetite for knowledge but you hate learning or studying. Now when it comes to decision making, there is good news and bad news. Bad News: You will almost always change you mind mid-stream. The Good News? We can help you! You don't have to make serious decisions with Shooga, and there is no learning involved except for which flavor you like best. For your two-minded personality we strongly recommend a combo pack, kind of more-than-one-decision in a pack...

Your love for variety is our treat and we know (don't ask us how) that you will read all the other star signs, just for the kick of it. Your passion for adventure, new things and projects make you more likely to take a risk. Can you risk being without some Shooga Shooga spirals, they are after all very much like you - interesting, colorful, different and yet the same, and a little self centered….

You share your signs with some phenomenal people, George & Barbara Bush (talk about a conflict of interest!), Prince William, and less royal, Lionel Richie ("say you, say me" dude). What are we saying?Life is simply there to enjoy, think, play and have fun for the moment - we could not agree more! Bon Apetit!

June 22 - July 22
Home Sweet Home takes on a new meaning for Cancerians. You simply love being at home, kiddies roughing it up all over with your home built for comfort, not magazine style. You love your buddies but will walk through fire for your family. You are sensitive, loyal, kind and sympathetic. You are the perfect giver and what a choice of "I-love-you" gifts we have. 5 Pack lolls for the wee ones, no fighting guaranteed and stand-up bon bons for your partner when the house finally goes quiet and you can have some us-time.

On the bad side, you tend to procrastinate, putting things off till the last minute - so better have some medium rounds ready in the sock drawer for those awkward "I wanted to but did not get round to it" apologies. Your star sign colour is silver, like the moon. You love to shine at work and home.

You share your sign with the likes of Mike Tyson (fighter), Ernest Hemingway (writer) and Meryl Streep (actress). In short: You're a tad complex, a one-of-a-kind kinda confused, best to make every moment a sweet moment then, don't you think?

July 23 - August 22
You are uncomplicated, know exactly what u want and will use every ounce of your energy, creativity and resolution to get it. You lead naturally with a loyal standing of followers, be it good or bad. Best to get you in our good books then, just imagine - a sweet revolution! One Shooga for all and all Shooga for one!

You will mostly excel in any environment and love the challenge of getting to the top. Your are kind and trust easily, making it extra hard on those disappointing moments. Don't fear. Our range of bon bons will have you back to your perky, strong, think-bigger-picture self in no time.

Needless to say your sign colour is gold, like the gold in our Christmas candy range. We know you're a bit of a snob sometimes - probably biggest, furriest, greenest Christmas tree in the village snob - so might as well go the whole nine yards and decorate it with something devine and utterly 'tasty-licious'. We also know you can be a bit bossy sometimes. Hint to the family - get some Shooga Magic - sweetest way to silence…

You share your signs with some strange and amazing characters including Mata Hari (Secret Agent), Napoleon ( he was short too…) and Henry Ford (founder of Ford motors). What are we trying to say? We know you should be doing something profound right now, but sometimes best to just stop - savior the sweetness - and then carry on in your mad journey to the top. Wishing you all the best sweet Lion…

virgo
 

August 23 - September 23

You are practical, patient, critical and somewhat reserved to the outside world, but we know you better than that. We know you are kind, a tad sensitive and worry too much, way to much. You like to analyze and you like things right, not halfway right. We bet you twenty small rounds that once you have exposed your conservative taste buds to Shooga Shooga magic, there will be no turning back. True, our sweets are handmade, and your perfectionist nature might find that a tad too natural, but have you tasted it? Time for some sweet change we say!

No more mechanical "anyone can make this" candy bars, nope - only the best, the creme de la creme of sweets. You may want to try something a bit more traditional, like our humbug flavored standing bon bons - one of a kind, just like you!
Your sign colours are green and dark brown, maybe best to try the choc chip mint bon bons then, to stay in the true scheme of things? Don't worry, your secret is safe with us. No one needs to know that life's little mole hills can be smoothened out with our sweet offerings…or that you took an incredulous amount of time pondering the various pro's and con's of every product. Best to just indulge, this once - pinky promise ;-)

You share your sign with the likes of Agatha Christie (Crime Writer ), Stephen King (starting to see a pattern here…), Mother Theresa and yes, Mickey Mouse (we are just as amazed as you!) What are we trying to say?

Let go a little, enjoy it a lot and ditto…all over again!

September 24 - October 23

You can stand back, assess and make up your mind pretty quickly on most situations. You are balanced, sympathetic and over all easy going. You like pretty things and think with the right brain, you are a creative thinker which works wonders at work but often lead to personal problems. Why? You will always compromise to avoid the clash of the titans. You hate fighting, and you hate loosing even more.

One word for you sweet Libra…TREAT. When last have you gone out and treated yourself? Time for some sit back - shoes off - favorite telly show - Shoogalicious - me time! Don't worry what anyone thinks. This is your time, taste buds and house! Take your gentle soul on a taste adventure. Start with some tutti-fruity flavors and work your way to cappuccino in our bon bon range, or if your busy reading that long forgotten novel, maybe something on a candy stick like a small round sucker will do. Our humbug bon bons go great with a glass of red wine…

Your sign colour is blue and you share this colour with great people like Lucianno Pavarotti (Opera singer - it was the pasta, not the sweets…), Michael Douglas and Sting (now we know why he sings, "its probably me"…). What are we saying?

Everyday has the opportunity dear Libra, to give you some perfectly sweet moments - without having to give up the fight.

scor
 

October 24 - November 22

You are intense with large reserves of emotional energy, running like a current beneath those stare-through-me -eyes. This is a good thing, because once we can convert a scorpio - we have arrived. Now don't get me wrong, we are by no means trying to flatter you without cause, we know you don't like that. So best to think of this little blurb as a project of profound consequence…to Shooga or not to Shooga, that is the question!

To save us time, and writing space here, we have a whole site dedicated to our wonderful product - and it really is yummy. We know once you've made up your mind, its well…made up, so no point in trying to persuade you with gimpy gimmicks and frills. Best to just order you - no negotiations - to buy the darn stuff and taste it! And while you're in an exploring frame of mind, look at the interesting shapes of our handmade candy - the bon bons literally bouncing around in that proud, clever, assertive mouth of yours. And do try to fit a whopping 8cm round into your mouth while stuck in traffic, getting all those "I-want-some" stares from fellow travellers...

Your colour is a corporate maroon - or we'd like to think more of "red wine in candle light" red, but still a colour ever present on our humbugs and liquorice flavors. You share your sign wit folks likes of Ghandi (Indian Advocate and Nobel prize peace winner), Bill Gates (the founder of PC and Windows) and Marie Antoinette ("off with their heads!" chick). What are we saying?

There is nothing we can tell you really, except that you are not always right, and neither are your friends, and sometimes, just sometimes - sweet moments come with surrendering a little.

November 23 - December 21

You are full of enterprise, versatility and adventure. You are open minded and love traveling, new faces and places. That is on the up side, on the dark side there is just one word…restless. We understand completely. You only have one life and there is this whole planet and tons of wonderful information you need to discover. While the Shooga team is by no means a nomadic group, we often dream of traveling with you - maybe in your suitcase or handbag, within easy reach for those pondering moments.

We also happen to know that you are a good judge of character, making it so much easier to tell you about us. Shooga's are great, and while you may not be able to explore the seven seas, we will allow you some sweet adventures from wherever you may find yourself, be it in the boardroom, office, home or dusty 4 x 4 road in no mans land. Try some of our interesting candy canes, share it with the office and revel in the appreciative murmurs from everyone. Discover how our small spirals can change a moody evening into a great evening when happy little mouths go quiet and you can make up for lost time with your partner.

Your sign colour is rich purple, and while we don't have this colour in our candy, we offer you rainbow lollies, bons bons and sweet couture to hearts content! You share your sign with the likes of Steven Spielberg, Mark Twain (Huckleberry Fin writer) and Tina Turner (now we know why she sings "you're simply the best!"). What are we saying?

Even the great explorers of the world, need a little quiet sweet time - discovering things right there where they are. Time to discover sweet archer.

December 22 - January 20

You are serious, confident, practical and above all - persevering. That's right, when all the other star signs have given up, you are still grinding away - head down, focussed and loyal. Now we know you are a tad careful and conservative so best we clear the air right now. Shooga Shooga will by no means stand in your way of achievement and results - in fact, just the opposite. While quietly sucking on our mint bon bons, you may just experience that energy boost to work an extra hour.

You can multi-task brilliantly so there would be no problem enjoying 5 pack lollies while building your empire would there? We have some great tasting flavors. Cherry, Peach and Yoghurt to name just a few. If the moment takes you, get some for the underlings in your division. You can rest assure, Shooga is no fly by night, mickey mouse enterprise - we have been around for a while and intend to stay - so you may just as well get hooked!

Your star sign colour is brown, so best to try some cappuccino bon bons or choc chip mint ones - and if that does not satisfy your persistent, humorous, patient taste buds, then we are truly lost! You share your sign with amazing names like Joan of Arc (French Saint) , Martin Luther King and Howard Stern (Wacky Radio Host - New York). What are we saying?

We know you are a logical, rational and professional person. Best to just put down the briefcase, sit back and savor the sweetness of life - just for a few minutes. Then back to the salt mines with ye!

January 21 - February 19

Mmm…took us a some time to figure you out sweet Aquarius. You have a deeply emotional interior beneath that jovial character of yours. Seems we are not alone for most star signs will have a hard time seeing past the sometimes shy, sometimes exhibitionist nature you often project. The good news is, you are honest, passionate and caring behind that mask, and that no matter what - you will find the good in others. Phew! This makes us very happy. Honesty is very important to us too! And we love to bring out the good in people, especially when happily sucking away on a bon bon or medium round.

We know you have a wild imagination and would secretly love to be an inventor of the next space shuttle to Mars, so we made you a stunning little place of magic on our home page, a colorful palace filled with sweet wonder. Now before you think we are dooming you to dreamworlds and unrealistic expectations, we know you are logical, intelligent and concise - and quite practical regarding that wild mind of yours. No hippy clothing for you, nope - you are a no-nonsense, independent person. And what could be more unique than hand-made candy - try our apple sour bon bons for something sweetly fresh.

Your star sign colour is turquoise, like the colour of the Mediterranean sea on a bright spring day, or the bright blue in our rainbow lolly. You share your sign with names like Charles Darwin (Survival of the fittest bloke…), Abraham Lincoln (American President) and the romantic Lord Byron (Poet). What are we saying?

Sometimes, you have to remove the mask to let some love and friendship in. The sweetest way to content dear water carrier are sometimes found when least expected.

February 20 - March 20

Your are emotional, instinctive and to put it mildly - a big softy. Know what? Humankind would be lost without your compassionate, caring, giving personality. Now while our candy is not soft, our intentions are. We love making young and old smile. Simply lovemaking candy!

We know you love new ideas and things, so best to just try our Shooga Shooga magic, see where the rabbit hole takes you. We promise you that once your creative and versatile self have experienced our colorful candy variety, there will be no return. We know you make friends easily, so best to keep some medium rounds in the cupboard for those groupy sweet-tooth moments. And maybe some heart lolls for the "I told you so days", 'cause you did tell them, you listened with your heart and they still did not take your expert advise! Bunch of emotional amateurs….

Your star sign colour is s soft green, like the green in our choc chip bon bons…only dreamier. Speaking of, we know you'd prefer a little daydream instead of all the mumbo jumbo so lets just get it over with...You share your sign with fellow dreamers like Sir Richard Burton (Explorer), Dr Seuss (Children's writer - "Morton hears a who!" bloke.) and Pierre Renoir (Artist). What are we saying?

You're a sweet person who cherishes all those around you, just remember to sometimes do it the Shooga way - sweet but firm.
