Retro chocolate bars

Retro chocolate bars are a great treat if you know where to find them, you can get such things as Old Jamaica which is a large plain chocolate bar with rum and raisons in made by Cadburys.  Or if that is not to your taste you can get a Fry’s Peppermint Creme, orange or the original fondant centre with dark chocolate in the famous blue wrapper!  Then of course not to forget Freddo’s also made by Cadburys, the little frog made of milk chocolate and the same frog with a caramel centre, you may also remember the Wispa bars, Wispa’s were a classic 80′s chocolate bar which is now a firm retro favourite, there are also Curly Wurlys, the Curly Wurlys are a great favourite with adults and children alike, these are curly shaped chocolate bars with a soft toffee filling.  There are also Caramacs which are an acquired taste, you either love them or hate them as a Caramac is made by Nestle and an old favourite.  Also there are Walnut Whips in a classic pyramid shape, thick chocolate on the outside with a fondant creme centre with a walnut stuck on the top also made by Nestle.  If you have a craving for some retro chocolate bars or would like to treat a friend, then visit Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop today.

Sweets of the 80′s

Sweets of the 80′s really were iconic and will go down in history as one of the most innovative decades  that will be remembered for many years to come and now those sweets are now known as retro sweets which are enjoyed by many different generations young and old alike from school children who are now eating sweets of the 80′s such as cadburys fredo’s which are a little frog shaped chocolate bars, curly wurlys which are a long thin soft caramel chewy bar with holes in the middle covered in milk chocolate and came out in the 80′s and were very popular and are now even more popular in the same way today nearly 30 years later, also there were wham bars, a firm favourite amongst sweet lovers and wispa chocolate bars.    Another firm favourite was a fudge bar made by cadburys and the slogan was “a finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat, its full of family goodness and just enough to eat” or something along those lines.. Do you remember funny feet ice creams although these are not sweets they were always in the local corner shop where we would buy our old fashioned sweets and was always a big memory of mine which was strawberry flavoured ice creams in the shape of feet, simply delicious.  If you were not a child of  the 80′s then I am sure you will have your own stories to tell, but for me relating   of my childhood to fond memories and sweets of the 80′s then you can try to imagine some of the fun that I used to have and how simple life was and how little it used to cost.
