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! Along the lines of Sherbet Straws - here at Keep It Sweet we are fans of all things sherbet! There is nothing better than a packet of tiny Sherbet Pips to get your tongue tingling or a classic Sherbet Fountain to cover yourself in!

Another old school classic that is sure to take you on a trip down memory lane is Jelly Beans. The origin of the Jelly Bean is a bit of a mystery, but one things for sure - they are one of the most popular sweets of all time and aren’t going to die out anytime soon. We offer a variety of different Jelly Beans from the classic fruity beans that we all know and love, too cute Jelly Bean Hearts and our wild and wacky Crazy Beans. Get choosing yours today!

Amongst all the weird and wonderful retro sweets in the world are some hidden gems that can often be overlooked. Some of the oldest classics of them all are Mints. Although you may not have appreciated them as a child, mints are a staple for any handbag or car and here at Keep It Sweet we have mints of every variety for you to stock up and keep your breath minty fresh. The first modern day mint sweet was created back in 1790, and mints have developed into a firm British favourite ever since. Choose from cool Fox’s Glacier Mints to iconic Mint Cremes - or even dare to brave the strongest Strong Mints around! Did you know, that the Romans believed that eating mint would increase intelligence? Although we can’t prove this is entirely scientifically correct we say it’s definitely worth a try!

We also have a range of Plastic and Branded Sweet Jars for businesses. Take your clients and customers on a trip down memory lane to their childhoods to market your brand or product in a way that is sure to leave a great lasting impression and to ensure your brand stands out for all the right reasons. Our Branded Sweet Jars are the perfect marketing tool for corporate events, meetings and giveaways. Along with jars, why not consider Promotional Sweet Tins if you are looking for something a bit more unique and different. They are a great cost effective way to attract customers with a high-end product and can cater for all numbers. Add your own text, logo or even artwork to create a truly personal product using retro sweets that people can’t miss.

Retro Sweets are also a great nostalgic gift, packed full of happy memories as well as delicious tongue-tingling sweets and goodies! Retro Sweets Jars are available in a huge variety of different sizes and themes to suit every occasion and to please everyone. For example, our Football Jar is the perfect quirky gift for any footie fans out there and contains a range of football-themed sweets to get them through the next game. Or for an, even more, special gift, our Personalised Sweet Jars are the perfect birthday, anniversary, valentine’s or Easter gift to brighten somebody’s day and one they are sure to remember for years to come. For example, our Birthday Jars are just one of our many options containing retro sweets such as Drumstick Bars to Candy Sticks that are simply irresistible!
