Sweets of the noughties

What sweets do you think will define the noughties ?  Will it be things such as toxic waste which is a very sour candy that children  love or will it be mega sour boiled sweets with flavours such as apple, lemon, cherry which they also seem to love.  To me I think the noughties sweets are better known as what old fashioned sweets people are remembering from years gone by such as 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, 70′s, 80′s 90′s, there is nothing really that would stand out and be remembered as the real classic sweets of the past, though we still have many years to go for this to be put to the test.  If you know of any classic sweets from the noughties that should go down in history please contact Sweet Heaven.

Old fashioned sweets for weddings

Alot of people choose to put favours on the wedding tables these days and as budgets are ever more important and stretched what better way to do this than purchasing old fashioned sweets for weddings.  You can theme your tables easily with sweets whether going for a certain colour in sweets ie  pinks, purples or reds to match your colour theme or say selecting a certain era and decorating your table with the reto sweets for that era ie 60′s, 70′s, 80′s, 90′s.  Maybe its not favours you are looking to do, but just want to use sweets for other ideas, maybe a glass vase that would both weight your ballons down but add a splash of colour and difference to your table, or supplying sweets around the foyer area etc.

60's sweets

The 60′s are synonomous with so many things good and exciting things – most of which were associated with Britain – the swinging sixties being the most evident in the UK with us leading the way with fashion, music, and the lifting of many tabboos that still existed from Victorian times.  Life was moving at a fast pace that touched most peoples lives, by the end of the decade most homes would have electricity for the first time and TV’s, man walked and the moon and the earliest concept of a “supermarket” hit the streets which changed peoples shopping all of these things are still with us know. Lucikily the one thing that did survive future decades was the corner shop and old fashioned traditional sweet shop”  Thank Goodness.  Life without the traditional sweet shop would have been unimaginable!   How many childrens books feaure the litle sweet shop in them, they are as much a part of British life as what the British pub is!  With the advent of the web sweets have become just as popular online.  Sweet Heaven started its life as a traditional sweet shop and then quickly expanded into selling sweets online with demand in British old fashioned sweets being increadibly high and continues to grow each day.  the popularity of 60′s sweets sweets is repeated for each era 50′s, 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s alike are all popular with our customers, it will be interesting to see what sweets will make the era of the noughties!  Maybe Sweet Heaven’s new Customer Forum where our customers can leave feedback so ou forum will also help us see what the favourite sweets of the noughties may start to look like.  My guess that many of the favourites that we have seen every decade will still feature such as refreshers, drumsticks,  fruit salads, white mice, flying saucers and the list goes on.  If you want to have your say on what you think will be the sweets that will define or be remembered in the noughties decade log onto Sweet Heavens Forum where we would love to hear from you.
