Double Dip is a confectionery produced by Swizzels Matlow,[1] where it has been popular in the United Kingdom, Australia and Norway. In 1989 Double Dip hit its peak of popularity when the sherbet based confection became the best selling sweet in Ireland.[citation needed] It consists of a sachet of two sherbet powders (orange and cherry flavoured), with a lollipop for dipping. The idea for the product came from the company's desire to create a product that was distinct, unique, and interactive.[2]

Since the release of Double Dip, a cola flavour has been added. It started as a one off in a few packets, and then a special edition, and has since become a normal sachet in the packets.
