Retro chocolate bars

Retro chocolate bars are a great treat if you know where to find them, you can get such things as Old Jamaica which is a large plain chocolate bar with rum and raisons in made by Cadburys.  Or if that is not to your taste you can get a Fry’s Peppermint Creme, orange or the original fondant centre with dark chocolate in the famous blue wrapper!  Then of course not to forget Freddo’s also made by Cadburys, the little frog made of milk chocolate and the same frog with a caramel centre, you may also remember the Wispa bars, Wispa’s were a classic 80′s chocolate bar which is now a firm retro favourite, there are also Curly Wurlys, the Curly Wurlys are a great favourite with adults and children alike, these are curly shaped chocolate bars with a soft toffee filling.  There are also Caramacs which are an acquired taste, you either love them or hate them as a Caramac is made by Nestle and an old favourite.  Also there are Walnut Whips in a classic pyramid shape, thick chocolate on the outside with a fondant creme centre with a walnut stuck on the top also made by Nestle.  If you have a craving for some retro chocolate bars or would like to treat a friend, then visit Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop today.

Sweet candy

There is nothing like sweet candy to brighten up a dull day, candy is an American word for sweets, if you asked some children how to describe their favourite sweets and what is candy, they probably would not know as it originated from America, but if you asked most adults if they liked sweet candy their answer would be yes.  Some of the favourites would be refresher chews, fruit salads, black jacks, candy necklaces and bracelets, these were firm favourites from the 80′s with children so they may remember that type of candy.  Whichever way you look at it sweet candy is a firm favourite with both adults and children as it has been for many years.  Check out Sweet Heaven’s selection of candies and see if we have your favourite and don’t forget you will get free UK delivery.
