Two Fridays ago, we hosted a press event for our mums and dads. With Kenny the vintage VW (our festival van) being so busy during the summer months, it was so difficult to get a date in to organise this. We are so blessed that one of our favourite stockists Queens Park cafe “Park Cafe” partnered up with us to bring all the lolly love on one of the hottest day of the summer!
We brought our Kenny the lollimobile just in time for Pride London. He’s a rainbow camper van with the best personality ever! We loved having him there for the launch of our new packaging.
A huge thank you to our wonderful stockist and friends at Park Cafe - Queens Park. It’s our local and they’ve supported our journey the last few years… and especially open their arms and welcomed us to their cafe when we changed our packaging from plastic to compostable. Thank you for your support!!! Check out the lovely ladies with our cool Pineapple tattoo ;)
Queens Park Park Cafe address:
25 Kingswood Ave, Queen's Park, London NW6 6LL
Our little lolly mascot Rocco (the directors’ son) enjoying his currently favourite lolly - our new organic Citrus Burst ice lolly which is made with real organic orange juice, real bits of organic strawberry and a whole lot of lemon and lime :)
Our lolly lovers absolutely loved the arts and crafts corner. We had lolly colour pages available as well as a lolly making corner.
Kenny travels around the country from April - September going to festivals and events to meet our customers throughout the UK. July and August is the busiest month for us
We love having our lolly lovers parked on our CUSTOMER PARKING seats. It’s literally the best place to be when cooling down with one of our ice lollies.
If we had to choose one thing about the event that we loved more than anything was meeting our cutie pie lolly lovers. A lot of them (we’ve known for years) and seeing them all grown up into older toddlers has been so amazing. They’re so smart and so curious. We love how they call the lollies a “LICKALIX”! We appreciate and love you all so much.
We were so excited to meet Nicola from @tinytableofficial! We are actually going to be joining her at one of our beloved stockists - Brown and Green cafe at Crystal Palace in August. Thank you so much for inviting us to meet all the new mums and to discuss our journey with you!
We had such a great time and hope to do this again soon. In the meantime, please check our instagram for updates on where we will be the rest of July and August.
