Old School Eats

What are your favourite old school eats that you could remember from your childhood?  Top of most peoples lists are old skool sweets as there are many to choose from and they bring back so many memories as they were such a big part of our lives back then.  I have many memories of the local sweet shop where I used to visit on a daily basis on my way to school to take in all of the sights and smells that were on offer in my favourite traditional sweet shop.  Old school eats go down in history with many an adult nowadays who liked to bring out their inner child and reminisce about the good old days and have something in common to talk and laugh about when life is looking a little bit too serious.  I remember sweets like black jacks, refreshers, fruit salads, double lollies dip, candy necklaces, foam bananas, foam shrimps and you could get all of this in a white paper bag that was called a 10p mix up in those days.  So my favourite old school eats would have to be old skool sweets.  To get some of your favourite old skool sweets then visit Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop today and take in the memories and also take advantage of the free delivery service within the UK.
