Old Fashioned Sweets

Classic sweets online

Traditional sweets are becoming harder and harder to find you will have to go a long way to find an old traditional sweet shop like you used to find on the corner of every street.  There used to be one on my way to school which was filled with all of the old fashioned jars and they would be filled to the brim with old traditional sweets.  Classic  sweets online are now making a big comeback since all of these shops have long since disappeared, there are many online shops to choose from, but you need to make sure that you find the right supplier for your classic sweets online as you need to get the right makes and brands that have been made using the old fashioned methods to bring you the fullest flavours.  There would be favourites such as bulls eyes, rosie apples, acid drops, classic fudges, sherberts and chews.  Sweet Heaven have  a large selection of classic sweets online to choose from and from different eras such as the 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, 70′s, 80′s and 90′s.  So if you fancy a piece of nostalgia and a trip down memory lane then visit our website and check out what we have to offer and do not forget that you will receive free UK delivery.

Easter Sweets

What are your plans for this Easter?  Will it be the usual chocolate eggs or have you got some other things in mind like some Easter sweets from days gone by that would be known as retro sweets.  These would make a refreshing change and would go down very well rather than the usual Easter eggs that you can buy in any local supermarket.  Retro sweets are hard to find and people will remember them from their childhood and will really appreciate receiving something different this Easter.  Take a look at our large selection of traditional Easter sweets that we have on offer.  We have the usual chocolate foil eggs that can be used for a number of different fun games, such as Easter egg hunt where you can hide foil eggs around the home and garden for children to find and enjoy.  Then we have a large selection of retro sweets to choose from such as fruit salads, chews, black jacks, refreshers, boiled sweets, jelly sweets, liquorice sweets and retro chocolate bars.  Sweet Heaven offer free delivery on all items so that you can purchase a small or a large order without the worry of a big delivery charge and you can also treat friends or family to an Easter present this year.

Foil Easter eggs

Foil Easter eggs are a great source of fun in many ways, Easter is on the way and foil Easter eggs can be used for a number of different games between children and adults. They are great fun to do especially in Easter egg hunt and keep the children quiet for hours and hours. The beauty of them is because they are covered in foil they can be buried in hard to find places in the home and in the garden so that you can hours of fun trying to find them on Easter day.  You could not do that with many eggs because if they are not covered in a foil and if they were exposed to the dirt you would not be able to consume them.  Therefore the best thing to do is to purchase some foil Easter eggs this Easter and have yourselves some fun with the family and see who can collect the most and then you will even get to eat them afterwards.  Sweet Heaven online sweet shop has a large selection of Easter chocolates to choose from so this is an advanced warning for you that the foil Easter eggs do sell out quickly so please put your order in for them today to avoid disappointment and you will receive free UK delivery.

Easter egg hunt

The time of year is approaching for children to get very excited and to have something to keep them amused for a while because Easter is fast approaching and one classic Easter game is an Easter egg hunt.  All you need to do is purchase chocolate foil eggs and place them around your home and garden and the children will have hours of fun searching and playing games in order to find their Easter eggs.  Most children go through the year looking forward to the next event, this is a magical time both for children and adults alike as we know the meaning of Easter is not just about chocolate eggs!  An Easter egg hunt is a great way to get people together and communicate with each other in order to find the eggs and to see who comes back with the most so it also brings out the competitive side and also is a lot of fun at the same time both for the children and the adults.  There are several different ways to put your Easter egg hunt together, most of which will depend on the age of your children, some of whom will not have played this before, it may be a good idea to use some smaller Easter eggs to show the smaller ones the way to the bigger eggs, it worked for us last year!   Take a look at www.sweetheaven-online.co.uk and see the selection of foil Easter eggs that are on offer for your celebrations and dont forget you will receive free UK delivery on your order.

Old School Eats

What are your favourite old school eats that you could remember from your childhood?  Top of most peoples lists are old skool sweets as there are many to choose from and they bring back so many memories as they were such a big part of our lives back then.  I have many memories of the local sweet shop where I used to visit on a daily basis on my way to school to take in all of the sights and smells that were on offer in my favourite traditional sweet shop.  Old school eats go down in history with many an adult nowadays who liked to bring out their inner child and reminisce about the good old days and have something in common to talk and laugh about when life is looking a little bit too serious.  I remember sweets like black jacks, refreshers, fruit salads, double lollies dip, candy necklaces, foam bananas, foam shrimps and you could get all of this in a white paper bag that was called a 10p mix up in those days.  So my favourite old school eats would have to be old skool sweets.  To get some of your favourite old skool sweets then visit Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop today and take in the memories and also take advantage of the free delivery service within the UK.
