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.

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.
