Another great reason to order sweets online from Keep It Sweet is we have a huge selection of classic traditional sweets to choose from. Traditional and old fashioned sweets are sure to bring back plenty of memories of the old sweet shop on the corner. Remember taking your pocket money along and seeing how many Rhubarb and Custard Pips you could get for your 50p? Or sneaking a bag of Bon Bons in your pocket so mum wouldn’t know? Take a look at our fantastic range of Sherbet Pips, Strawberry and Creams and much more here.

Along with our fantastic traditional treats we also organise all of our sweets into the decades they were created or came popular to make it even easier for you to find your favourite sweets to order online. For example, the 1960s was not only a time for flares and flower crowns, but also for a whole host of delicious sweets and goodies! With sugar rationing ceasing only a decade before, the 60s saw a boom in iconic sweets including Gumballs, Pear Drops and the all-time favourite Jelly Beans that have been loved and devoured throughout the years.

Some of our most popular sweets are traditional classics from our childhoods that prove that simpler is better and, in this case,, less really is more! Aniseed Balls are one of the most distinctive flavoured sweets around and are also one of the oldest. They are made with Anise, one of the oldest known seeds in the world, which was reportedly hung by the Ancient Romans next to their pillows to prevent bad dreams and was thrown over the bride at a wedding to bring good fortune. Aniseed Balls to this day are still a highly popular sweet that is loved by many, so order your fix online today to bring nostalgic memories flooding back.
