Sweet or sour? Lemon lollies have a sweet AND zesty twist!
When you’re looking for a different kind of sweetness, why not add a sour burst with an exciting – and unexpected – candy?
Sweet and sour lemon candies will take you on a trip down memory lane, once you’ve tried that delicious tangy lemon twist.
Why are sour candies so good?
Perhaps you’ve been a fan of sour candy since your early years, or maybe you’re new to the lemon candy band wagon.
Either way, there are a lot of reasons why sour candy is so tantalising!
1. Zesty lemon lollies have a unique flavour
There’s nothing like the taste of sour candy!
If you’re used to the overloaded sweetness of lollies, why not add a sour twist to your lolly mix?
For example, yellow sherbet lemon lollies are a great way to add a bit of zest to your usual afternoon lolly snack.
The perfect combination of sourness from the lemon plus the sweetness from the sugar is sure to make you a citrus fanatic!
2. Sour lollies can change your mood!
It’s normal to crave something sweet. You’re not only satisfying your taste buds, but you’re improving your hormones too!
When you eat something sweet, your brain releases serotonin and dopamine, known to be feel-good hormones, that boost your mood.
Yellow lollies are a good outlet for your confectionery cravings as they are the perfect mix of sweet and sour which can make you feel good, especially when you’re stressed!
And of course, the bright yellow colour will lift your mood, too!
3. Sour lollies can be enjoyed by all ages – and can be gluten-free, too!
From your daily sweet treat to lolly bags or an extravagant candy bar for your next major birthday party, lemon lollies are enjoyed by all ages, for a variety of events.
And guess what: did you know that MyLollies also offers gluten-free sour lemons? That’s right – gluten and dairy free… not that you would know it!
Share the bubbly yellow joy with everyone!
4. Did you know that sour lollies may treat indigestion and nausea?
Do you ever suffer motion sickness? Some candies can impede this feeling.
Not only do sour candies ease the queasy feeling in your stomach, but their flavour and lemon scent calms your nausea and treats your indigestion.
And above all, they’re the perfect hit of sugar to boost your energy and mood.
Now you know why so many people carry lemon candies in their pockets whenever they are on a long trip! It’s their secret weapon to combat motion sickness.
Lemon-candy inspired lollies, treats, and delights
Lemon-candy inspired lollies, like pineapple lollies add warmth, happiness, and positivity to any event.
Whether they’re for bridal showers, baby showers, or your child’s birthday party, a yellow burst of sunshine is a must-have!
So now that we have shared the benefits of lemon lollies, now it’s time to look at some ways that you can add a twist of lemon-coloured lollies to your next party, celebration, or event!
Here are some of our favourite examples.
Lemon lolly cake
Nothing beats the citrus fragrance of a lemon cake topped with zesty yellow lollies.
Whether it’s skittles or assorted jelly beans, decorate your lemon lolly cake with lemon-inspired lollies.
It’s also a great way to get the kids involved. You could even have a quick search on Pinterest to find a cake decorated with colourful lollies that the little ones can help you put together.
(And if all else fails, just let them go nuts adding lollies all over your cake!)
Add colour and brightness to your lolly display
Planning a colourful, summertime candy buffet?
Lolly buffets are a great and cost-effective way to create a decadent table filled with lollies, cakes, and other sweet treats.
They are popular for all types of events, including:
- Hens parties or bridal showers
- Kids’ birthday parties
- Baby showers, gender reveals, or christenings
Yellow is a versatile colour that can be incorporated into almost any theme, whether you’re celebrating a rainbow party for your little one, an Italian Riviera theme for a bride-to-be, or a gender-neutral baby gender reveal.
Add some zest to your lolly bags!
No party is complete without lolly bags for guests to take home with them. (Whether they share them with anyone else once they get home is up to them!)
The best thing about creating lolly bags is that there really is no limit when it comes to choosing the candies you want to add. If your event has a theme, it’s a great idea to carry that theme throughout – from decorations and dress code to of course, the lolly bag.
But at the end of the day, all that matters is that your guests get to take home a delightful assortment of both sweet and sour lollies – including all our favourite lemon candies.
