Traditional boiled sweets

Nowadays it is hard to find genuine traditional hard boiled sweets that are made the way they used to be made using all the old fashioned methods.  There are many varieties of traditional boiled sweets and many favourites such as apple and blackberry, banana and custard, pear drops, rosie applies, sherbert lemons, rhubarb and custards all of which if are not made by the right manufacturer using the tried and tested old fashioned methods would simply not taste the same, so dont be fooled into buying a cheaper option and comprise the taste and satisfaction of savouring genuine traditional boiled sweets.  Take a look at Sweet Heaven’s large selection of retro sweets and take advantage of our free delivery service today.

Favourite sweets

What is your favourite sweets?  Would it be the sweets from your school days the ones you used to buy from the school tuckshop or the famous 10p mix up.  Would it be pear drops, rhubarb and custards, rosie apples, fruit salads, black jacks or would it be modern sweets,  would have thought it would be the old fashioned variety that we all know and remember and that brings back so many memories for us.  If you were to carry out a poll of Britains favourite sweets then aniseed balls normally comes out close to the top. 

Everyone has their own individual tastes though, I am sure aniseed may not have been at the top of your favourite sweet list.  Whatever yours maybe take at look at Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop, and get free UK delivery.

Favourite traditional sweets

My personal favourite traditional sweets are mint humbugs, rhubarb and custard boiled sweets and milk chocolate brazil nuts, then I think of my favourite retro sweets which immediately spring to mind and its the good refreshers, drumsticks and popping candy – which now seems to go by a lot of different names like fizz wizz or space dust!  I have often thought I would love to do a survey of peopes favourite old fashioned sweets just to see what actually comes out – there could be some surprises in there and while it doesnt matter on anyone’s age as sweets really do transcend age groups, it would still be interesting to compare across the era’s  All I do know is Sweet Heaven can accommodate anyones favourite traditional sweets with a selection of well over 200+ sweets!

Favourite Old Sweets

Whats your favourite old sweets,there are so many different varieties to choose from and also different eras such as 50′s,60′s,70′s,and 80′s sweets.The memories that are also associated with them are so vivid and people get so nostalgic when talking about their favourites.

I remember old fashioned sweets like rosie apples and rhubarb and custards,also sherbet fountains which was a liquorice stick in some very tangy sherbet,they was and still are great even thouth the packaging has changed from a totally paper packet to having a plastic end.

Some people would say they dont make them how they used to,but they do take a look in our online sweet shop today and get free delivery.

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.
