We discover why retro sweets are as popular today as ever

Retro sweets are something that many people associate with their childhoods and often bring a sense of nostalgia and reminiscence. However, many people have rediscovered the wonder and joy of retro sweets and they are now as popular as ever.

There are always new more colourful, sourer or weirder sweets being invented, so how come classic retro sweets are always our favourite option? Retro sweets remind us of our childhoods - a time where we could be carefree and life was simple.

Some of the most popular traditional retro sweets include Fizzy Fish - Brightly coloured, fish shaped crunchy delights that are hair raisingly zingy and are guaranteed to take you back to your childhood days.
