Some of the most loved childhood sweets are penny sweets. Although, sadly, penny sweets are no longer around, there is nothing to stop you saving up your loose change and treating yourself to a good old fashioned sugary treat or two! One of our most favourite penny sweets were Sherbet Straws. These classic party bag fillers are bright, colourful and packed with fruity flavour. Remember rushing to spend your pocket money on these after school and trading them with your mates? Now you can re-live these memories at the click of a button!
