Our Story

Our Story

It is our mission to show the world the power of personalisation. We help brands create moments of joy, delighting customers with fun chocolate experiences.

We’ve been creating magical moments for our own customers since 2016 and have seen a huge demand for customised chocolate. We are now partnering with brands and licensing our technology to create many more amazing chocolate experiences!

Take a look at our story so far.

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 personalisation 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


Candy Mechanics launch online - building a website that enables users to create their products online in mere minutes

A successful crowdfunding campaign with Seedrs sees the team raising £400,000 to fuel brand partnerships and develop the personalisation technology.

The team partner with Topshop for a two week pop-up in the run up to Christmas 2018.
