As the Original South African chew, Champion toffees have been a part of South African life for years, our big taste has stayed the same but the times have certainly changed.

Today, there’s a new creative energy and a sense of opportunity for writers, designers, musicians, artists, performers and entrepreneurs who are doing things THEIR way, making things happen on their terms, and making South Africa such an exciting place to be right now. It’s a spirit and energy we want to be a part of and to celebrate – and that’s why we’ve created the #iKasiOriginals blogsite.

#iKasiOriginal is our way of recognising the young, vibrant, positive spirit of the Mzansi of today. Every month we’ll be profiling the creators, the thinkers, the pioneers and innovators who are changing perceptions, we’ll have some exciting guest bloggers sharing their thoughts on their work, their inspirations and their thoughts on what makes a true #iKasiOriginal!

Be part of the #iKasiOriginal excitement, check in regularly for the latest exclusive content or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates and more #iKasiOriginal inspiration.
