Melody Pop | 90s Sweets | Keep It Sweet Giant Cola Bottles | 90s Sweets | Keep It Sweet

1.       Some of the most iconic 90s sweets are also some of the most tongue-tingling! The 90s saw a huge take off of sour sweets and there was a huge demand for different types of eye-watering delights. One of the most popular was Toxic Waste. These individually wrapped boiled sweets are dangerously sour and will have your cheeks burning even at the sight of them. Think you’re tough? Just wait until you try one of these!

2.       Next on the list of fantastic sweets from the 90s are Sherbet Straws. A step down from the sourness of Toxic Waste, these brightly coloured fruity treats are a classic party bag filler and are sure to make an appearance at every school disco! Re-live your childhood memories and bring a sense of nostalgia to you and your friends with these tangy treats.

3.       Lollies were also big in the 90s. Drumstick Lollies are a true retro classic and are still just as chewy and wonderful as you remember. Did you know that these iconic milk and raspberry flavoured sweets were actually created by accident? We personally think this is one of the best accidents to every happen in the world and are still as massive fans of these 90s sweets as we were back in the day.

4.       Next on our list of the best sweets from the 90s are Apple Cubes. These zangy cubes are a true blast from the past and were a popular addition back when penny sweets were a thing. This is a treat to impress even the fussiest of sugar fans and is the perfect bite-sized fix to a sweet tooth. We also stock Cola Cubes and Pineapple Cubes if you fancy mixing it up a bit!

5.       Melody Pops are another childhood classic and a must-have for our best 90s sweets list! These fantastically delicious strawberry flavoured Lollies not only taste delicious, but also allow you to show off your musical talents! Get some friends or family together and have a great time with these super fun and affordable favourites that are great for both kids and adults.

6.       As well as producing some fantastic new and exciting sweets and unleashing a whole new range of flavours, 90s sweets also included some traditional favourites that will simply never grow old. Retro Chews are amongst the most popular and well-known retro sweets of all time and are always ranked in the nation’s top 10 favourite sweets of all time. Tuck into tropical Fruit Salads, tangy sherbet-filled Refresher Chews and Black Jacks in our fantastic Retro Chew Mix for the perfect sweet treat this summer.

Perfect for sharing amongst friends, tucking into in front of a film or dealing out at a sleepover, there is no reason not to like them! We have to warn you though, it’s impossible not to munch your way through a whole bag in one go!
