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 ;)

Our lolly lovers absolutely loved the arts and crafts corner. We had lolly colour pages available as well as a lolly making corner.

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.
