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

Mother’s Day 3rd April 2011

Mother’s Day 2011 is nearly upon us, now if you are anything like myself you might leave this until the last minute and then rush down to the local supermarket to buy a bunch of flowers only to find that everyone else has had the same idea and queues are ridiculous and all of the best flowers have gone.  So this year, why not be prepared in advance and buy something a little different like some traditional sweets that your mother would remember from her school days.  It would be a nostalgic gift with a difference and she would be thrilled with something a little different.  Mothers day only comes but once a year so you should show your love and appreciation for your mother in a way that is a little bit different so that when the gift is received she will be thrilled to bits and you will have a lot to talk about such as  moments in her school days when she would indulge in these traditional sweets on her way to school when she used to visit the local sweet shop.  Sweet Heaven online supply a large selection of retro sweets and gifts that can be used for special occasions such as Mothers day and there can also be a personal message put onto the label and delivered free of charge within the UK.

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.
