The skull that became a sweet success
A chewy sweet that you put in your mouth can be design protected with the Swedish Patent and Registration Office. If it has a special shape, it is possible that it is registered as design protected.
The skull and crossbones design
One of Sweden’s sweet manufacturers, Bubs, produces sweets in many different shapes – from cats to fish, to skulls and crossbones. The skull and crossbones, which today is produced in sour flavours and liquorice/raspberry, has been registered with the Swedish Patent and Registration Office since April 2006 and is one of the company’s top sellers.
Designs its own sweets
The company specializes in chewy sweets and has expanded greatly since its start in 1992. One of the company’s ideas is to design and manufacture its own sweets, so they are unique in their market.
