How These Retro Sweets Have Stood The Test of Time


From sweets that will turn your tongue a different colour to traditional and old-school classics, we have a fantastic selection of treats and goodies to put a smile back on your face as the summer rolls in! Retro Sweets have made a massive comeback in recent years and it’s definitely for the better in our opinion! Along with some more unusual tasty treats, we also stock all of the most popular and well-known retro sweets for you to enjoy - here are just a few… 

Fizzy Cola Bottles are one of the most iconic sweets of all time and are perfect for all you cola lovers out there! Fizzy and chewy, with a mouth-watering tang, these gum bottles are the original edible alternative to the famous cola drink and are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Or if cola isn’t your thing, or you fancy changing it up without going too far astray, why not try some Fizzy Apple or Strawberry Space Pencils? These fizzy pencils with a smooth creamy fondant centre are sure to make your taste buds tingle. 

Another popular type of retro sweets are gummy sweets, in particular Fried Eggs. This childhood classic is the perfect sweet fix to a fry up and an iconic sweet shop favourite. And Fried Eggs aren’t the only retro sweets that are fun-shaped; we also stock plenty more gummy and jelly sweets in all sorts of weird and wacky shapes and colours! Tuck into some fruity flavoured gummy meerkats, scare your family and friends with some Jelly Severed Fingers (yum!) or be sure to jolly your spirits and treat yourself to some delicious Jelly Lager Bottles that are sure to have you munching them by the kilo! 

Or maybe traditional favourites are the way to your heart? If so, we have a huge range of different old school sweets to bring back nostalgic childhood memories and to brighten your spirits. One of the most famous types of traditional retro sweets is Rhubarb and Custards. These fruity boiled sweets are the perfect mix of creamy custard, along with the sharp, tangy taste of red rhubarb. Rhubarb, technically is a vegetable, but don’t worry, these sweets are perfect sweet and oh-so-delicious! Infact, rhubarb is one of the oldest known vegetables and has been dated to as far back as 2700 BC. Cosy up with these favourite granny sweeties and a film for the perfect winter night in.
