10p mix up

Do  you remember the good old fashioned 10p mix up?  Many years ago when we were youngsters on our way to school we would drop into our local sweet shop and buy a large paper bag full of old fashioned sweets and you could mix up all of your favourites for 10p, which was called a 10p mix up.  That bag would contain all of your favourite old fashioned sweets such as jazzies, cola cubes, refreshers, fruit salads, black jacks, flying saucers, candy necklaces, candy bracelets, mojos, toffee chewing nuts and many more.  The list would go on you would not believe how much you could buy for your 10p mix up in the good old days.  The sweet shop on the corner has long since disappeared, but our memories have not and we still have the longing for the old fashioned sweets that we used to know and love that nowadays we search on the internet to find all of our favourites.  Sweet Heaven’s online store has them all so if you have those special feelings and tastes to have all of the old favourites that you used to know and love, then why not take a look at what we have to offer and if you like what we see or remember any of your old favourites, then simply put in an order today and receive free UK del

old time sweets

Today it was our daughters fifth birthday party and she was so excited!  Before we left the house for the party venue, we put together the party bags for all the girls and boys and in their we put a selection of old time sweets, sometimes called old fashioned sweets or traditional sweets.  Our daughter chose all the sweets herself and included candy necklaces, lollipops, strawberry and lemon bonbons (her favourites) space dust and and white chocolate mice.  It was an early morning party.  She had a great party and was telling all her little guests and about the sweetie party bags with old time sweets in there that she had chosen.  Once they had finished playing they had their party lunch, a princess ballerina cake and then she gave out the party bags to all her desks – you should have heard all the hmms and haas.  Then just as the parents were looking on longingly, I produced a bowl of sweets that I had picked out that I knew most of them would smile and laugh over.  There was uproar over who was going to have the 2 sherbet fountains!  The bowl included refreshers, drumstick lollipops, black jacks and fruit salads, flying saucers and yes space dust again!  I wish I had some more disk space left on my camera because their faces were a treat!  If you want to put a smile on your friends faces checkout Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop where there are hundreds of your old favourites – you won’t know where to begin, all with free delivery direct to your door anywhere in the UK.

1990′s sweets

Sweets of the 1990′s are different to what they were a few decades ago, most of the sweets around in the 1990′s nowadays are retro sweets.  The ones that were around when we were young and used to have in our school days.  You would find things like sherbert dip dabs, mojo’s, fruit salads, candy necklaces, flying saucers, space dust now known as fiz whizz.  When I was at school there was a tuck shop and we used to queue up every day with a list of our favourite old fashioned sweets ready to try and order as many of our favourites as possible with the 20p we used to have in our pockets and that was on a good day.   If you would like to relive some of those memories too then take a look at Sweet Heavens online sweet shop and receive free delivery direct to your door anywhere in the UK.

Favourite old fashioned sweets

Can you remember what your favourite old fashioned sweets were from your school days my favourite old fashioned sweets was flying saucers which were sherbert filled saucer shaped rice paper which melts in your wife and then the sensation of the sherbert which melts on your tongue was out of this world.  Also I remember refresher chews they were very juicy and chewy and were also filled with sherbert in the middle.  Another one I remember was anglo bubbly which was a round slab of bubble gum which you could blow large bubbles with.  All of these favourite old fashioned sweets and much much more can be found in Sweet Heaven’s old fashioned sweet shop online and receive free delivery direct to your door in the UK.

70's sweets

The 70′s for me conjure up so many pictures, it was a very flamboyant decade with platforms, flares and physcodelic colours and patterns and which are still synonmous with many a themed party as it was seen as an era fun – non-one took themselves very seriously.  I can also relate those 70′s sweets to that very same decade again these were alot of fun sweets with flying saucers, space dust, drum sticks, refreshers, fruit salads, black jacks – they were all there!  Quite often people contact us here at Sweet Heaven for a 70′s themed party, a popular idea seems to be to give their guests gift bags with 70′s retro sweets in them, people have used these 70′s themed parties for birthdays, wedding anniversaries and school reunions, what a great idea to go to a party with all your old school friends tucking into the sweets which you used to buy from the school tuck shop.  Why not view Sweet Heavens era ideas and receive free delivery for any order you place with us – you wont be disappointed, we are the worlds no. old fashioned traditional sweet shop in the UK.

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.

A Quarter Of

Please can I have a  quarter of wine gums, actually make that a quarter of liquorice allsorts – I bet you are already reminicsing over the little sweet shop on the  corner that  you used to visit when you were little, counting out your money to maximise how many sweets you could buy.  Mine would always be a quarter of my favourite sweets the choice of which would depend on my taste buds on that day do I go down the chocolate route, the tangy sour way or possible sticky toffee, once I had made my main decision I would then with the remaining few pennies peruse the penny sweets white chocolate mice, flying saucers and refreshers were always favourite, sometimes the pennies wold stretch to a sherbert fountain or dip dab if I was flush!  That would keep me busy for the walk home, then once home I would say to myself that I would just eat half of those sweets in my paper bag, as you can guess though I never did!
