Traditional Sweet Choices and Retro Sweets

Traditional and Retro sweets are consistently popular sweet choices and available through our online sweet shop.

And to be honest, it’s really easy to see why! Who doesn’t love a traditional sweet?

We all love a sweet that we know, that makes us feel good, that we associate with someone, or that evokes special childhood memories of special times.

We often have a natter with our customers about their ‘sweet history’, their favourite childhood sweet. And the reason that they always buy the same sweet treat. We love it – it’s great to get to know your customers a little bit better? And when you’re as interested in all things sweet as we are, it’s professionally interesting too!

Amongst our best selling traditional and retro sweets, and for very good reason, are Flying Saucers, and Black Jacks. Pez, Popping Candy , Sherbet Lemons, Rhubarb and Custard, Dip Daps and the good old Sherbet Fountain. Some of the packaging has changed over the years, but the flavour is still there…

And for the perfect sweet gift, a retro sweet selection can bring back childhood memories for brothers, sisters, parents… children of all ages in fact!

Being lucky enough to live in beautiful Devon, we also see our Chocolate pebbles and shrimps and bananas flying out of the door often for nostalgic reasons. And not just shrimps and banana either.
