There’s something special about sitting down and enjoying a good bag of sweets or box of chocolates with the family, however as a parent, those available nowadays simply don’t even begin to compare to what was available 15 or 20 years ago. Fast forward to 2015 and long gone are the majority of small, independent newsagents and corner shops, all of whom once stocked a fantastic selection of sweets and treats (and all of which, of course, were either pick ’n’ mix or weighed out by the shopkeeper in front of you).
Retro Sweets Have Long Disappeared From Our Corner Shops
Unfortunately, you’ll struggle to find sweets and treats such as bon bons, gobstoppers and other traditional goodies in supermarkets and convenience stores (even though you may occasionally find pre-packaged ones but trust us, these don’t taste anywhere near as good as they’re meant to) however if you’re desperate to introduce your children to those which you enjoyed when you were their age, you’re in luck! A number of specialist traditional sweet shops have popped up in recent years who specialise in offering only retro sweets an a few of these even sell online, making it easy and straightforward to get your hands on the goodies you’re after! One of these such sweet shops is Sweet Memory Lane based in Ashby De-La-Zouche in Leicestershire who offer traditional retro sweets both online and in their boutique old fashioned sweet shop! Unlike many others, these guys really go every step of the way to create lasting memories and whilst at the end of the day offering sweets, they package them so beautifully that they almost look too good to eat when you either buy in the shop or receive in the post!
Sharing Your Childhood Favourites With Your Own Kids
If you’re looking to share your childhood favourites with your own kids, you really can’t get a more perfect solution than this. They’ll not only go down a storm due to tasting fantastic but they really do look the part as well! Of course, whilst you’ll be trying your best to create new memories, the look and feel of these beautiful packages (yes, even when all you order is a small quantity of bon bond or similar) help you to recreate your own memories!
Whether you’re wanting to introduce your kids to bon bons, gobstoppers, lollipops, those from a huge range of pick ’n’ mix and tuck shop sweets, you’ll find it all plus so much more here at both fantastic prices and packaged in a way which you’ll never forget. These sweets make the perfect gift for your kids (or yourself or your partner – don’t forget the adults in this) and come highly recommended!
Once You Start, You’ll Never Stop…
