THIS YEAR WE WERE OUT AT THE WILDERNESS FESTIVAL AGAIN! BUT THIS TIME WAS SPECIAL BECAUSE WE HAD OUR LITTLEST LICKALIXER WITH US! IT WAS ROCCO'S FIRST FESTIVAL, AND HE HAD A BLAST.
The Wilderness festival took place from the second of august through to the fifth. The festival is family friendly with specialised camping and RV grounds for families.
They also had comedians, art demos as well as mental wellness and health stages at the festival, Wilderness truly has something for everyone!
This was our Rocco's first (of many) festival and he had a blast according to Karis and Dom! He was a fab little guy the whole weekend and enjoyed himself to the max, and of course he ate a couple of his favourite ice lollies! He loves our mango raspberry.
Some of the main acts at Wilderness were Ronnie Scotts and Bastille!
Here are some of our favourite photos from the festival!
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.
