Lick your way to love this Valentine’s Day

To help get lovers (and friends) in the mood this Valentine’s Day, Sourced Market will be offering the first ever, all-natural, aphrodisiac lollipops with quintessential British flavours.

Created by artisan producer, Pandora’s Pops, the all-natural lollipops not only taste amazing, but are filled with natural aphrodisiac herbs, designed to help lovers relax, feel sensual and ‘play spontaneously’.

Made from 100% natural, organic ingredients, lovers can suck on a variety of British flavours, from the light, playful and creamy taste of an Eton Mess, to the soothing, stiff and refreshing tang of a Gin and Tonic.

The limited edition lollipops have been made exclusively for London’s Sourced Market, to provide a quirky alternative to the traditional red roses and chocolate gesture and to encourage Brits to have a bit of fun with their gifts this Valentine’s Day.

Pandora’s Pops Founder and Holistic Expert, Jena Chambers, comments on the collaboration: “I love the challenge of putting together new flavours and trialling ingredients, and I’m excited to collaborate with Sourced Market to do something unique to support lovers this Valentine’s Day.

“The limited edition lollipops can only be found in Sourced Market’s Old Street Pop-Up, so they will be a very rare treat for lovers – a treat that also happens to be good for you, made from completely natural, organic ingredients.”

Sourced Market Founder and CEO, Ben O’Brien, comments on the collaboration: “Sourced Market prides itself on introducing consumers to new and innovative products.”

“We want to encourage people to step outside the box this Valentine’s Day, and I think we have definitely achieved that. It has been great fun working with Pandora’s Pops – the product is original and a bit alternative and will help Britons spread the love around on Valentine’s Day.”

Sourced Market will be stocking five British aphrodisiac flavoured Pandora’s Pops exclusively in their new pop-up at Old Street Station from 2nd February, for £2.50 a pop.  

 

Aphrodisiac British Pops

English Rose - succulent, pure and flushed

Bakewell Tart - classic, sweet and tarty

Eton Messlight, playful and creamy

Earl Grey  - fifty shades of hot and heavy

Gin and Tonic - soothing, stiff and refreshing

 

Located in Exit 3 of Old Street Underground Station, Sourced Market’s Old Street pop-up aims to raise the bar and improve the quality of food available at London’s tube stations, offering commuters a range of ethically sourced food and drink.

 

The term ‘aphrodisiac’ is derived from Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of love, who used natural ingredients to incite the passion of men. Since then, the leaves and roots of plants have been used across the globe as herbal remedies to increase blood flow, relax muscles and increase desire for men and women alike – effects that are scientifically proven.*
