UNSTOPPABLE with Kerwin Rae


Apr 3, 2022

King by name, king by nature.

Today on Unstoppable I have the immense pleasure to chat with David King the owner of Sydney rock candy store Sticky.

David opened his shop at the rocks in 2001. When the pandemic hit, his revenue went down to zero. Out of desperation, he decided to bring the art of candy making online, and has now become the most followed Tiktok account in Australia.

An incredible story, but an even more incredible man behind all of this.
