Where did the holidays go?

red tulip easter basket

When you plan a holiday the anticipation can be overwhelming and having to wait 12 months feels like an eternity. And then… GONE.

It had been a few years since we had the opportunity to travel and I was so looking forward to going to Hawaii. Sun, beaches, shopping, Pearl Harbour, shopping, Jurassic Park, Mai Tai’s, shopping. It now all seems like a lifetime ago. March!! only 8 weeks until Easter, the biggest time of the year for this little lolly shop, and already well into packing up the bulk mini eggs and creating Easter gift boxes. How does the time go so fast?

Easter gift boxes are a very popular gift item for Easter and there are a few pre-made to make it easy or let us know the items you would like included and we can custom make one.

Click on Easter and check out all the wonderful chocolate delights.

Christmas is Coming

Christmas is Coming

With only 5 weeks until the Christmas festivities, 
have you planned your annual event?
We have been on the go, as usual, since the moment the candy canes arrived.
I enjoy the excitement created at this time of year and the happy faces that come into the shop with their list of goodies needed to make their holiday special.
There's always phone calls from online shoppers hoping to get their Christmas Creations quickly, the challenge is always fun.
Mini Candy Canes have again been very popular with the corporate customers we have. They work out quite economical for the all the Christmas functions.
There's been a lot of new products out this year including our own honey in gift size jars with a festive theme.
Chocolate Eclairs, Cadbury Mints, and a new Lolly Mix.
There's still time to stock up with your Christmas Stash but don't leave it too long! Santa is Coming!

Santa’s Visit

Santa's Visit

How lucky is Lollyworld to have Santa visit!

He was picking up his candy canes that he’ll be giving out to all the girls and boys that have been good this year.

You can have a visit from him too. He has his own website so Mrs Claus can keep track of where he’s supposed to be.

A decade of Lollyworld

Happy 10th Anniversary to us!

Australia Day marks 10 years for Lollyworld, our little lolly shop in Lawnton. That’s quite an exciting thought to know what we have achieved in a decade, and are still going strong. There have been times where we thought it may not go the distance because any business can be brutal. There have been many lolly shops pop up all over the place, stores and online. Some we have watched do well while others disappear before people knew they were even there. The 2011 floods wiped out our local bridge, walk in trade was all but gone. Railway closures, a new over pass taking traffic away made it very quiet. About a dozen stores around our local shops have come and gone. It’s not for the faint of heart, like any business, you have to have a heart of steel and a head of sharp mechanics, to be constantly aware of all that goes on and to stay focused.

Our business has evolved from when it started in 2005, under the house, as we made small mixed lolly bags we would sticker for parties, to around Australia corporate sales. In the last two weeks alone, over 200kgs chocolate gold coins have gone out just for Chinese New Year celebrations. Valentines Day is around the corner, Easter and Mothers Day. The wheels keep turning. We have you to thank for that. See the need, fill the need, in the words of Bigweld, and that is what we will continue to do.

Happy 10th Anniversary Lollyworld!

Our honey is Nothin but Honey

nothin but honey

Save the Bees – Bee the Cure

This is a cause very close to our heart. Behind the scenes at Lollyworld, we are the randy bee, and our honey is Nothin but Honey. We have become avid beekeepers over the last 5 years. Starting with native bees purely for pollination (I have never had so many passion fruit!) But since having European honey bees it almost feels like a duty to expand the hives and keep them prospering. Thankfully they give us a lot of honey and we now have quite a few hives.

The problem can be solved if we all get involved. Support your local beekeeper! There are plenty of us, and the Bee the Cure site is the perfect place to find us. The honey map is such a great idea. Once you have had local honey without all the processes, you will always make the effort to purchase from a local beekeeper. We are very lucky to have a place like Lollyworld to be able to get our honey out there.

I love the different flavours we get each time we rob the hive. Can you believe I have never been stung! My husband has… you do not want to ask where… They can fly a distance of 10km.  Because we live in Pine Rivers, there are plenty of bush lands to choose from. Perhaps the latest taste is that of the Golden Penda, they are lining the streets and flowering like there’s no tomorrow. We often go for a walk in the afternoon and see them buzzing away through these flowering trees. Try our honey in store or online at this link Nothin but Honey. We deliver all around Australia. You can choose from a 300g jar, a 500g squeezie bottle, and also a 1.5kg tub. Check out the honey map to see your local beekeeper The Honey Map

Candy Blocks you can build and eat

cake decorating

Not often does a new product come into the shop that surprises me. Candy Blox is one of those lollies. I have customers quite often wanting to make a Minecraft cake for their son’s birthday and they need items that would portray the game. This lolly fits the mould perfectly. The pieces, like Lego, actually fit together and you can build yourself what ever your imagination wants. Great for decorating that Minecraft cake. They are sweet to the taste and not too hard, so good for the little ones. There are also some small blocks so keep an eye on them. Candy Blox come in 3 sizes 100g, 300g and 1kg in case you need to build a whole lolly city.

Easter 2017

Easter 2017

Easter 2017 already that time again and although later this year, it has come about so quick. It still feels like Christmas just ended. Bulk easter eggs and lots of bunnies graced the store this year. Cadbury and Lindt, and 200kgs of Sorini mini eggs have already gone out and about the countryside. I love to see the faces of the little ones coming into the store, lighting up like they’ve never seen so many lollies let alone Easter bunnies. in 3 weeks it will all be over for another year. I hope your Easter is magical and if you can’t come into the store, shop online. We deliver Australia wide, so if you’re camping or staying away from home have the Easter bunny deliver to where you are! Stay safe. Check out Easter today here EASTER

Ordering Candy Canes in May… But Christmas is in December!

Chocolate Mini Santas 4kg

Move over Jon Snow, Christmas is coming!

With the year going so fast you are not going to want to hear we have just put our order in for Candy Canes. Maybe it’s age or just the fact that you become so busy with ‘life’ trying to make the most out of every minute of every day that time just seems to disappear. Not that you don’t feel productive in that time, but you feel like you need more of it. I love the festivity of Christmas. I love the 2 week break I finally get with an online business, free time becomes more of an enigma than a reality. People out there in the internet world look at your business as more of an automation than the fact that there are humans behind it making the cogs tick over. But that’s where the love of sending orders in the mail comes.

I had a pen pal as a kid, two in fact, one in New Zealand and one in America. The one in New Zealand came from answering an ad in a magazine for pen pals to write to her. She was about 11, as was I at the time, and the best thing in the world was receiving that letter in the mail. firstly because it was magical to me that something could come from a land so far a way and just that there was something in the post with my name on it, just for me.

That’s how I imagine receiving your box of lollies and chocolate would feel only it’s just that little bit better, isn’t it 🙂

The other was an exchange student we had at school I kept in contact with, she came from Milwaukee. And yes that’s exactly what I thought at the time, she must know Laverne And Shirley!! OMG I sang the song every time her letters came in the mail. That and ‘Grandma got ran over by a reindeer’ a song she had taped for me from a local college radio station, ah the memories.

So, CHRISTMAS IS COMING, get ready, we will have it up and ready to go in September, so keep an eye out at this link 🙂

Christmas The Silly Season

christmas the silly season

Christmas the Silly Season

When you’re a kid, Christmas can’t come quick enough. All you have to do is eat, sleep and await the man in red to laden beneath the Christmas tree an abundance of gifts that you’d spent months writing a list for.

We’d spend each year on my Grandparents farm with all the cousins, about 20, and camp out in the paddock. Christmas lunch was always a roast, one that you then spent the next 20 years trying to replicate. The smell and taste bringing back all those fond memories of chasing the cows, playing in the creek catching turtles and having your favourite Uncle sneak you beer… an occasion apparently my kids then cottoned onto a little too well…

For table decorations of candy canes and starlight mints, gifts of chocolate baskets or lolly bags for corporate Christmas parties, we have it all and can deliver right round Australia.

Purchase online or give me a call, I can help make this years Christmas party fun for everyone 🙂
