retro sweets free delivery

What better way to order your retro sweets than to receive free delivery into the bargain!  Do you remember buying good old fashioned British sweets from your local corner sweet shop on your way to school?  How times have changed for our childrens generation who can now buy online!  We are probably the last generation to truly remember this precious little shop with hundreds of different smells wafting through shop hit you as soon as you walked through the door.  Those little paper bags that we filled up with penny sweets and which we had eaten on the way home before we even got there.  But then there was the other little paper bag of sweets where you had brought a quarter of your favourite sweets from the glass jars which would then see you through the weekend, maybe doing some swaps with your friends litte paper bags of sweets long the way, if you were lucky the shopkeeper would let you have 2 ounces of say kali in one bag (you always got a lot of that one as it was so light) and say 2 ounces of midget gems and as a bonus they would give you the broken bits of sweets at the bottom of the jar if it was nearing the end, what a sweet life!

Classic sweets

We all of us love our sweets and we all have our individual favourites – alot of which depend on the era we were born into, but there are classic sweets that transcend each era and generation, “classic sweets” are also known as traditional sweets or retro sweets all of which remind us all of time gone by.  For myself the “classics” conjure up such sweets that not only my grand parents knew but also my young childrens generation. Rhubarb and custards, pear drops, dolly mixtures, midget gems, black jacks and fruit salads, wine gums, sherbert fountains and the list goes on, I am sue you are already thinking of your own “classics” as you read this saying in your mind, I forgot to add drumsticks, toasted teacakes, rum balls, but the list goes on and on, but thats great that there is so many of favourties that we all we have that we cant possibly list them all.  When visiting Sweet Heaven though the list will get even longer with the hundreds of different choices you see listed – good thing is though Sweet Heaven will deliver all of these classic sweets direct to your delivery with free delivery anywhere in the UK.
