Take a trip down memory lane with retro sweets

It seems like every time you go to the supermarket there are new weird and wacky sweets that have been created. However the best sweets are always the traditional retro sweets that you remember from your childhood. Maybe you were given them as a treat by your parents or maybe you spent your pocket money on them, we all have our favourite childhood sweets that we remember.

Liquorice Allsorts are some of the most popular traditional sweets around and are a true sweetshop classic. Their unique flavours and bright colours have made them appealing to all ages and some of the most famous confectionery ever. They were first introduced in 1899, and were created purely by accident, when boxes of samples were knocked over and became mixed up, which then lead to the mouth-watering treats that are still popular today.

Buying retro sweets is one of the most fun and delicious ways to reminisce over fond memories. If you don’t have one particular favourite sweet, then why not try a retro sweets jar? Filled to the brim with old classics including Choc Dips, Refreshers and Flumps, you will be spoiled for choice of sugary snacks and full of fond memories. A retro sweets jar would also make a great gift for a friend or relative, to give them something unique that will give them a trip down memory lane and take them back to a time when life was sweet and simple.

Remember eating the brightest sweets possible to turn your tongue obscure colours? Or sneakily trying to eat just one more packet without your parents realising? Reminiscing over old stories is a fun pastime with family and friends and is even more enjoyable with a sweet treat to dig into. From Love Hearts to Aniseed Balls, there is a huge variety of different retro sweets to rediscover, or why not try something completely new?

So whatever your favourite retro sweets are, they are guaranteed to give you a trip down memory lane, so check out our retro sweets range today.
