The glamour lollipop – brilliant! With a background in mixology, aromatheraphy and photography, Kimberly Hadlock started Leccare Lollipops just for fun back in 2012.
‘I had made lollipops as Christmas gifts and my friends loved them so much they urged me to start an Etsy shop,’ she explains. ‘It was a great side job for two years.’
But it grew to such a state that Hadlock quit her day job to make Leccare a full time endeavor.
Now, they can be found in over 150 boutiques and Hadlock says she’ll be setting up her own novelty store. She doesn’t believe that size necessarily equates to impact, so her shop will be small and self-contained, with a filtered water system and solar panels. Eco-friendly!
Preservative-free, but filled with fruits, flavors, oils and even flowers (in alluring combinations like rose and honey, watermelon and sea salt, or lavender and marshmallow), Leccare is proof that lollipops aren’t just for kids anymore.
