The Swizzels Design-Your-Own-Sweet and Win A Trip To The Factory Competition!

I've written about Swizzels before and I've expressed my adoration for their sweeties plenty of times. This year the Derbyshire confectioners are celebrating a staggering 90 years in the business and they have a very special Sweetest Invention competition to celebrate.

Swizzels want members of the public to design a new sweet for their factory at New Mills to make. The four most inventive, interesting and delicious ideas submitted by entrants will be judged by a panel of experts.

The ultimate winner will bag an awesome prize - they will have their design made into a real sweet, and they will have a tour of the Swizzels factory to see where all of the sweets are made.

You can think completely outside the box, or take inspiration from sweets already in production. Love Hearts, Drumstick Lollies and Parma Violets, Fizzers, Refreshers, Rainbow Drops and Double Dip. All incredibly well-known and no wonder when you consider they've been around longer than I have. Swizzels didn't stop with the classics though, they have added extra sweet varieties over the years to reflect changing tastes.

Within the last year or so, Swizzels have really secured me as their biggest fan by expanding their vegetarian range and adding the awesome Choos. They now have a staggering 44 vegetarian products. Even more exciting - 43 of those are vegan! These are all also therefore suitable for anyone who doesn't eat beef or pork gelatine. It's fantastic and something I could only dream of when I was a young vegetarian.

Much as I'd love to win the competition myself, I'm guessing I won't, so I'll show you my initial design ideas, but to be in with a chance of winning, you will have to design your own and upload a picture or video to the Swizzels website or share on social media using the hashtag #MySwizzels  (those details are on the back of your Swizzels sweet packs, full terms and conditions are at the bottom of the entry form online).

You have until 5pm on 3rd September 2018 to enter, and entrants MUST BE over 16. You can submit as many entries as you like, but each one must have it's own description and image/video. You can even have a go at making it if you like!

To find out more and submit your entries, check out the competition page on the Swizzels website - get your digestive juices flowing and best of luck! 

I was sent my Sweetest Invention Kit with the notebook, pen, apron and sweets in return for this post.
