If you ask me, a lollipop instantly brings back reminiscences of childhood, when times were all about lighthearted playfulness. Always associated with good times, it’s no surprise that they make perfect favors at happy events such as bridal showers and weddings.
Unlike many candies containing gelatin (the most common gelatin is created processing various collagen substances from the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, pigs, and fish), lollipops are usually safe for vegans, although Melanie, spoke person for family run business The Lollipop Company, alerts us to watch out for cake sprinkles, which are made from shellac, a resin secreted by the female lac bug, on trees in the forests of India and Thailand.
Currently shipping in UK only, The Lollipop Company creates exquisite handcrafted lollipops, using the very best quality ingredients. Whether you’re planning your wedding, bridal shower or another special event, they can add that sparkle & wow factor with their unique range of customizable lollipops available in a wide variety of shapes, colors & sizes.
The Lollipop Company loves to experiment new mouth-watering flavors, from traditional strawberry to more contemporary flavor combinations such as gin & elderflower.
Their vegan range of lollipops are created by hand and can feature either fresh or dried edible flowers, including; cornflowers, rose bud petals, carnation petals or lavender. Complement these pretty petals, with their handmade edible glitters, to create the perfect wedding favor or addition to your dessert table.
Lollipops can be even personalized through their bespoke design service by including your name & wedding date either inside the lollipop or by adding a tag.
The Lollipop Company is currently working on launching their website and is at the moment accepting orders through their Instagram and Facebook accounts or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
