This week, we’re bringing out our Welsh flag here at Appleton Sweets and getting behind the celebrations of St David’s Day.

If you haven’t heard of St David’s Day, it is the day that was chosen as remembrance for the patron saint of Wales, St David.

St David’s Day falls on the 1st March (just in time for you to get your St David’s Day sweets at the ready!

Take a look at some sweeties that we recommend for St David’s Day…

Red, White and Green

Because the Welsh flag is a red dragon on a white and green background, we thought the following red, green and white sweeties would work a treat for St David’s Day…

Jelly Belly Green Tea Beans

You can’t get much greener than the Jelly Belly Green Tea Beans. They’ll be great for use on a pick ‘n’ mix party table and a brilliant addition to a Pick ‘n’ Mix bag.

Vidal Watermelon Rockets

These pink and green small tube sweeties are a soft foam jelly candy sweet, and will make a yummy addition to your St David’s Day celebrations.

Dulce Plus Jelly Hot Peppers

The Dulce Plus Jelly Hot Peppers are tasty red and green sweeties that come in a shape of a red hot pepper.

Haribo Giant Strawbs

The ultimate red and green sweeties, St David’s Day wouldn’t be the same without a few Haribo Giant Strawbs!

Haribo Happy Cherries

More on the theme of red and green, the Haribo Happy Cherries make for a great St David’s Day treat!

What’s more, why not add a little music to St David’s Day 2016?

The Land of Song

Wales is sometimes referred to as ‘The Land of Song’ and has numerous traditional musical instruments associated with it, including the fiddle, hornpipe and triple harp.

Chupa Chups Melody Pops

So, why not make some music this St David’s Day with the Chupa Chups Melody Pops? Great fun for kids, the Chupa Chups Melody Pops are lovely and tasty wrapped strawberry lollipops, full of a great strawberry taste… and are the icing on the cake for St David’s Day celebrations!

Some sweet St David’s Day celebration ideas..

We hope you are inspired by our St David’s Day sweeties and, if you want to celebrate St David’s Day with the children this year, why not make some craft daffodils, go and take some photos of wild daffodils, or even do some leek painting?
