Irish birthday

Happy birthday to you.

Anyone who has ever spent more than a year outside of Ireland, and let’s face it, that’s a lot of us, knows just how important home comforts can be.

That’s why it was music to our ears when the Paddy Box launched in 2017 — resulting in 1000s of deliveries to those poor souls trapped abroad, far away from Tayto and Cadbury’s.

Now the company has launched its latest box: The Birthday Box — replete with a lot of classic sweets that any Irish birthday just isn’t complete without.

It will include:


  • A Chocolate fudge Birthday Cake
  • A very Irish Birthday Card
  • A party bag containing Dip dab, Chewits, Refresher bar, Stinger bar, Drumstick, Fizzy Cola lolly, Caffreys mint crisp, a Flump
  • A Gobshite Mug
  • Cadbury Curly Wurly 4 pack
  • Cadbury Crunchie 4 Pack
  • Tayto 6 pack
  • Oatfield Emerald Caramels
  • Jacobs Elites Tea Cakes
  • Party Poppers

The box comes in at a cost of 49.95.

Speaking on the business’ success, Loftus said: It’s been a whirlwind since we launched, a response we could only have wished for. As a new, small Irish business, we’re really proud of and grateful for the positive feedback from consumers at home and abroad. We’ve sent thousands of Paddy Boxes to over 76 countries worldwide so far.

“Our most popular box destinations are Australia being the most popular, closely followed by the US, Canada, the UK and New Zealand. Our most popular boxes have been The Custom Box (41%), The Not Before Your Dinner Box (25%). Within our custom box, it’s clear that Tayto Crisps, Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, Cadbury Purple Snacks and Ballymaloe Relish have been the fan favourites”.
