Good enough to Eat

Former Miss Scotland Lois Weatherup braves the cold to model a bespoke Lees of Scotland Snowball dress in Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow.

As Lees of Scotland, one of Scotland’s leading confectioners, enters its 80th year in business, it’s celebrating with another milestone as it reveals it has produced a mammoth 1.6 billion Snowballs since the product was introduced in the 1950s.

To mark the occasion, a unique snowball dress made from hundreds of Lees Snowballs has been designed by Glasgow School of Art graduate Lori Marshall.

Lees of Scotland is synonymous with the iconic mallow snowballs which are loved by generations. The Lees Snowball is made to a traditional recipe and contains a soft fluffy mallow covered in chocolate and flakes of coconut.

Rather cold in Kelvingrove park - even a hot water bottle and a nibble at the snowballs couldn't warm up the model.
