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.
