Our Story

Here at Candy Mechanics we have one aim – to create the most awesome, individually personalised chocolate gifts.

Made from luxury Belgian chocolate, each product is individually engraved to create a completely unique gift that will astound and delight.

A long long time ago


Mix one dyslexic designer (our founder & head
mechanic, Sam) with the word ‘likeable’ and the
result ended in ‘lickable’. From a simple spelling
mistake came a big idea- why not create
customised candy in the form of people’s faces?

Sam wins a D&AD New Blood Award for the idea

Founding team go to work in the lab developing recipes and technology, creating their first Lolpop: Sam's head is made in chocolate in under five minutes with a CNC mill

Team designs chocolate Candy Cards using Candy Mechanics personalisation technology - products with mass appeal, perfect for gifting
