Please can I have a quarter of wine gums, actually make that a quarter of liquorice allsorts – I bet you are already reminicsing over the little sweet shop on the corner that you used to visit when you were little, counting out your money to maximise how many sweets you could buy. Mine would always be a quarter of my favourite sweets the choice of which would depend on my taste buds on that day do I go down the chocolate route, the tangy sour way or possible sticky toffee, once I had made my main decision I would then with the remaining few pennies peruse the penny sweets white chocolate mice, flying saucers and refreshers were always favourite, sometimes the pennies wold stretch to a sherbert fountain or dip dab if I was flush! That would keep me busy for the walk home, then once home I would say to myself that I would just eat half of those sweets in my paper bag, as you can guess though I never did!
There are many memories that we have from our childhood and one that i associate with fond memories is sweets,and being a child of the 50s it was a pleasure i really did enjoy so every so often i order my favourite 50s sweets online,sit back and let the memories come flooding back.
Sweet Heaven thought that the sales of the classic sherbert fountains would go down when they decided to change the packaging from the old paper packet to a pastic lid,but no they are just as popular as ever.
