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.

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!
