Here at Vegan All Sorts we are always looking for ways to minimise our waste and if you're a veteran Vegan All Sorts fan then you will remember the story of the Sad Sweets.
This Friday we are relaunching a very limited amount of our Sad Sweets and we have pledged to plant one tree for every bag of Sad Sweets sold.
Get your Sad Sweets for a discounted price and know that you will be contributing to a good cause at the same time.
For those who are wondering what Sad Sweets are, then please read the story of our Sad Sweets below:
The Story of Polly & the Sad Sweets
Once upon a time there was a Painter called Polly, now Polly was just like every other Painter except that Polly was broken. After losing a part of her brush in a fight with Molly the Mermaid, everyone knew what her future held.
The rumours were told about what happened to all the broken sweets and Polly was frightened.
Now although Polly was just like any another Painter but being broken meant that she wouldn’t be able to fulfil her destiny of making the Mega Bag.
Polly like all the other Painters dreamed every night of being picked for the next Mega Bag but being broken meant that her chances were slim.
As the days came closer, Polly knew her time was near and as she moved closer and closer to the front of the shelf, her time to go in the mixer was here.
Polly and the Painters were thrown into the mix with all the other fizz free sweets and as they spun around, they knew it was time.
Everyone wished her good luck and tried to conceal their excitement as they were thrown into the mix, Polly closed her eyes and could only pray.
Polly had one eye open and was using her arm to try and cover her broken brush but as she looked up, she was grabbed by the packer.
Polly screamed and thought surely this was it, her time was here, and she was going to where no sweet ever wants to go, the dreaded dump.
As she flew through the air to Polly’s surprise as she opened her eyes, she wasn’t heading for the dump but for a Mega Bag, but this wasn’t just any regular
Mega Bag, it was a bag of Sad Sweets.
It was Polly’s lucky day and as she arrived in the Sad Sweets Bag, she was reunited with Michael the Meerkat who lost his head at the Mini Mix concert and many more of her broken friends from her days on the shelf. The rumour was nothing but a myth and thankfully she wasn’t destined for the dump but to a good home where Sad Sweets are treated just like any other.
Here at Vegan All Sorts we treat Sad Sweets like any other, therefore, we limit our waste while also being able to save sweets just like Polly from the dreaded dump. There may not be much variety in these bags, but that’s why we sell them at a discounted price and for every bag purchased we will plant a tree (through the great charity work done by International Tree Foundation).
