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.

Old school sweeties

There is nothing like old school sweeties is there, my little girl is now four and a half years old and is getting into school sweeties and I wonder what she will be reminiscing as old school sweeties when she is older and talking with her friends “do you remember when”.  She was asking me what my favourite sweets were so I cast my mind back and could picture sherbert fountains, fruit salads, black jacks, mojos, rainbow puffs and popping candy. She then wanted to know about about what Grandma and Grandad’s favourite sweets were so I phoned them up for her so she could find out what theirs were, cant remember Grandmas but Grandads were milk chocolate brazils.    So I sent him some in the post – free delivery with Sweet Heaven you know!
