A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated St David’s Day here at Appleton Sweets. And, if you read our blog, you’ll have found out our favourite sweets for St David’s Day, and perhaps even enjoyed a few of them in your own celebrations!

This week, however, we’re moving from Welsh tradition over to Ireland, where St Patrick’s Day will be celebrated this week.

Celebrated on 17th March, St Patrick’s Day marks the death of Ireland’s patron Saint, St Patrick and celebrations generally involve festivals, parades and the wearing of green attire and/or shamrocks.

What’s more, people tend to drink Irish cider, whiskey or beer.

So, why not pour yourself a Guinness (with the Shamrock symbol on the head if you’re a dab-hand at pouring a pint!) and take a look at our best wholesale sweets for St Patrick’s Day…

Similarly to St David’s Day, we’re following the green theme for St Patrick’s Day. After all, if everyone dresses up in green, then some green sweeties are the perfect accompaniment to a St Patrick’s Day outfit…

Jelly Belly Green Tea Beans

Simply green, the Jelly Belly Green Tea Beans will make the perfect sweets for St Patrick’s Day. What’s more, if you are starring in a St Patrick’s Day festival or performance, why not pass them out to spectators? Or simply share them with your friends?

Key Lime Buttons

Tangy and sharp, the Key Lime Buttons are wrapped, green hard boiled sweets made by Atkinsons. Perfect if you are looking for a St Patrick’s Day sweet that is not too, (dare we say it?), sweet!

Walkers Mint Toffees

Walkers Mint Toffees are a great St Patrick’s Day treat for the whole family! They come in small green packs and each toffee is wrapped in green wrapping. Chewy, minty and truly delicious, the Walkers Mint Toffees are made with real milk and are a favourite toffee for many generations.

Gourmet Lollipops Citrus

Fun for the children, the Gourmet Lollipops Citrus are tasty, large, hard-boiled lollipops that are wrapped on a stick. They are green and yellow in colour, and have a tasty citrus punch sour flavour, making them a firm favourite for St Patrick’s Day!

Fini Apple Pencils

Another one for the kids, the Fini Apple Pencils have a tasty apple flavour and are green in colour.

Swizzels Sour Apple Slices

The Swizzels Sour Apple Slices contain no artificial colours. What’s more, they’re fun gums in the shape of apple slices, with a juicy, yet sour, fruity taste. Lovely!
