LBO land’s very own ‘Willy Wonka’ has announced that he is expanding his business and moving out of the area.
Lick Me I’m Delicious has been run from the Acorn Business Park in Wing by inventor Charlie Francis.
However the experimental events company that brought the world Glow In The Dark Ice Cream is expanding and is in the process of moving from its Cublington Road base to Oxford ahead of its latest venture.
Charlie said: “We are just expanding, moving to a bigger premises, proximity to London and the rest of the UK, still love the buzz though!”
The award-winning company is known for making elaborate food creations – previous inventions include the Zero Calorie Edible Mist Orbs and The Levitating Cocktail Machine.
The latest creation is The Edible Fragrance Factory, where users can spray on their chosen scent and then lick it off to taste the flavour.
The fragrances include chocolate cookie, pirate rum, bubblegum and horseradish.
Charlie explained: “It just seems so silly to me that you wear aftershave or perfume that smells amazing but then tastes awful.
“Why not have fragrances that you can lick as well?”
The Fragrance Factory can be hired through the company, Charlie added: “We are just hiring the machine out as an installation for now, but if there is enough demand, we will start selling the fragrances as well, so you too can smell like a bacon sandwich.”
