JUST THIS PAST WEEKEND SOME OF LICKALIX HQ ATTENDED THE LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS WORLD TOUR. WE HAD A LOT OF FUN OUT AT THE SHOW AND GOT TO MEET SO MANY NEW LOLLY LOVERS!
The event took place from August 3rd to the 5th and was held at the Royal Hospital Chelsea in Sloane Square. This event features the sports Olympic and World champions of show jumping.
LICKALIX LTD was out there on the Friday and Saturday, we had such a good time meeting many new lolly lovers who kept coming back for more lollies in-between the events!
Here are some of our favourite photos from both days!
LICKALIX launched its handmade gourmet ice lollies in London in May 2014. During the heat wave of summer 2013, Karis and Dominic Gesua began making ice lollies for their friends. Everyone loved the lollies, which were inspired by Mexican ‘paletas’, so the Camden based couple decided to give up their stressful jobs in branding and advertising and become full-time food entrepreneurs.
LICKALIX lollies are made by hand using real fruit and all natural and organic ingredients (no concentrates, juices, purees, stabilisers or additives). The lollies contain have less sugar and fat than most popular ice cream, ice lolly and frozen yogurt brands. They are also suitable for vegetarians, vegans and people with intolerance to lactose, dairy or gluten. LICKALIX lollies come in a range of flavours, including Mango Raspberry Swirl, Caribbean Twist, Strawberry & Banana Smoothie and Oh So Berry, with a RRP of £2 each.
During summer 2014, LICKALIX lollymobiles visited a number of festivals and street food markets, including Taste of London and Street Feast, to introduce the lollies to consumers. The company also established partnerships with various retailers across London, including kiosks in Hyde Park and St James’s Park, cafes, delis, bars and ice cream vans. Feedback from customers and the media included: “there is nothing more refreshing”, “tasty”, “a great idea”, “scrummy” and “all of the gourmet with none of the guilt”. In March 2015, the company expanded nationwide and launched its wholesale offering.
