Opening this week, the first-ever Allen’s Lolly Bar should be a trip down memory lane for Aussie candy-lovers. Suck the sugar off Allen's Spearmint Leaves, as you get your own bespoke Allen’s favourites done up all fancy-like, in a Personalised Lolly Jar ($30/2L) with your name on it (or the name of someone you love). What’s even better: if you’re doing the whole Xmas retail caper, they’ll make it while you shop, and text you when it’s ready to collect.
The Allen's Lolly Bar also offers some quirky twists on your old-time favourites. Allen’s Strawberries & Cream - invented before I was born in 1973 - have been redone as Choc & Cream ($6/150g) using the same fluffy, creamy bases.
I also got stuck into some minty-fresh Funny Teeth ($6/150g) - a twist on Allen’s Teeth - in apple-mint, berry-mint or (my personal favourite) pineapple-mint.
You’ll find your Fantales, Minties, Red Frogs and Jaffas (the perfect objects for rolling down Aussie cinema aisles since 1931) in the brightly coloured Allen’s Lolly Bar on Level 2 of Westfield Sydney up until Xmas Eve.
