We’ve announced today that we’ve teamed up with one of London’s most talked about candy stores. Spun Candy, based in Covent Garden, London, has created a one-off pop up shop to offer our Upper Class passengers the ultimate sweet experience at Heathrow. Spun Candy’s signature ‘dish’ is hard rock candy and we’ve worked together to design bespoke lollipops crafted in the shape of our president Sir Richard Branson.

The lollipops have been created using Spun Candy’s finest ingredients mixed with creativity and a little sprinkle of Spun Candy magic, and will be adorning the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse Christmas tree.


How sweet it is

The lollipops will be available to purchase in the pop up candy store situated in the Virgin Atlantic Heathrow Clubhouse from 6th to 10th December and 20th to 23rd December along with other products such as Spun Candy peppermints, mixed berry bags, super sour jars, Christmas candy canes and handcrafted natural fruit flavoured lollipops.

“We’re delighted to be creating candy live in front of Virgin Atlantic’s passengers at the Deli Bar,” said founder of Spun Candy James Ellender. “Our bespoke candy will be offered within the Clubhouse throughout 2014 at their pick and mix candy bar with special seasonal designs and Virgin themed treats. We believe that our passion fruit Sir Richard lollipops will send you sky high.”


The Virgin Atlantic Heathrow Clubhouse provides the ultimate pre-flight experience for every customer with an array of exciting and unique areas. Passengers can enjoy a stylish haircut in the salon; choose from a range of Dr Hauschka treatments in the spa; enjoy a game of pool in the Den, or enjoy a delicious cocktail at the 14 metre long bar.
