A Little Bit about sweet As!
After years of gifting English chocolates and sweets to my best friend while she is travelling the world I decided to create a Pic 'N' Mix business with a difference. After googling Pic 'N' Mix online for a different gifting idea for my friend I was greeted with hundreds of boxes or large bags with all the sweets loose inside and no chance to choose smaller personalised mixes to be packaged and sent together. I am known in my family for creating little gift hampers and other crafty gifts and cards so I decided to create my own gift box to suit what I wanted and so Sweet As! was born.
Each of my boxes is lovingly created and beautifully packaged with the ability to create up to 6 of your own mixes all individually bagged and presented in a box. This makes them the perfect gift for those with a sweet tooth. You will also see that I have created my own boxes available to order with 'pre-mixes' that I have created using our most popular sweets.
A Little Bit about Me
Hi! I'm Lara and I am the creator of Sweet As! Pic 'N' Mix. My background is mainly within events, catering and hospitality however, after being made redundant from my dream job (thanks COVID!) I decided that I could put my skills to use in my own business. Having a background in catering I am all too aware of the importance of food safety, allergens etc. so one of the first things I created when making my first box was an allergen log which is displayed here and a printed version is always included in each of our boxes as standard.
I love working with food so even when I'm not creating boxes I can usually be found in the kitchen preparing dinner or baking my favourite brownies! I've even started dipping my toes into creating some keto recipes in my spare time.
If I'm not in the kitchen you'll probably find me out walking or curled up on the sofa watching a David Attenborough documentary or an episode of one of my favourite shoes.
It's not easy being green
As a bit of a David Attenborough nut, one of the most important things to me when setting up Sweet As! was that all of my packaging needed to be environmentally friendly.
As a result ALL of our packaging is compostable, reusable or recyclable!
The boxes are made from fully recyclable cardboard and are sturdy enough to be reused by you once your sweets are finished.
The bags are not made from cellophane, instead they are made from plant starches and are fully compostable so feel free to pop these in your compost bin or in your food bin.
The tissue paper and other gift wrapping material inside of our boxes is all reusable / recyclable.
It's not easy being green, but we are!
