TBT WITH CKHQ
by Maddy de Winter, 7th November 2019
So here at CKHQ we're taking you all on a trip down memory lane! Throwback Thursday happens right here on our blogs EVERY Thursday! We will be chatting to the founders, Jamie Laing and Ed Williams about the growth and development of the Candy Kittens brand!
Stay tuned WEEKLY for unknown facts, some hilarious stories and an insight into Candy Kittens!
So we are DYING to know! What is the funniest or weirdest thing to have ever happened at Candy Kittens?
Jamie: So I used to keep getting calls from this unknown number, I used to get loads of prank calls!
Ed: Yeah Jamie isn't just bragging here, he seriously used to get lots prank calls from people that had managed to get hold of his mobile number.
Jamie: Anyway this person kept calling my mobile number and eventually I replied to her.
Ed: It transpired that the call he kept getting was a from a 14 year old daughter of Sainsbury's...
Jamie: We went for a meeting a week later, and well (laughs)... the rest is history!
Ok, so now we've been a bit silly, what has been your proudest moment so far with CK?
Jamie: Turning the range to vegan was pretty epic!
Ed: Yeah that was amazing, and finally getting the sweet and quality to the level we actually wanted.
Jamie: Yeah being vegan whilst still maintaining the delicious flavour!
Ed: Oh and Selfridges! That was our first ever stockist.
Jamie: Pretty crazy for a start up right!?
Ed: That year when we were stocked, Selfridges was voted award for the coolest store in the world!
Jamie: Definitely must've been because our sweets were in there... surely!?
