Popping Candy

Popping Candy


A fun commission. I loved the way this yarn turned out.


Do you remember Wham Bars? They were a favourite when I was a little girl. Occasionally they’d come as a free gift, stuck to the front of my Beano!

They were my first taste of popping candy. The slick, pink background was scattered with fizzy rocks that exploded on your tongue, sending showers of stars over your taste buds.

Pops, crackles, crunches and sizzles unleashed sensory overload! The candy treat dissolved, leaving just the sweetness of a memory.
