Whether you are a lover of sour sweets, or prefer a more toned down approach to confectionery, we have something for everyone to enjoy here at Keep It Sweet. All of our retro sweets are sorted into flavours and different types of sweets to make it even easier for you to find your favourite treats. One of the most iconic classic sweet types is Liquorice. Whether you love it or hate it, liquorice is one of the oldest retro sweets around and is still just as popular as it once was. In fact, this traditional favourite dates back as far as 2044 BC, where it is said the Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs enjoyed chewing this old school treat. It has since been used in a number of recipes, medicines and potions, along with being one of the most popular sweets of all time - if its stayed around for that long it must be good, right!? Liquorice Allsorts are a true sweet shop classic and look just as great as they taste. Tuck into some of these after dinner or show a bit of appreciation to your family and friends with these tasty treats. Other delicious liquorice sweets include Liquorice Twists, Liquorice Wands and even Liquorice Torpedos! - in fact, if you are looking for a sweet that comes in a huge range of different shapes and forms then liquorice is your pick!
