Mother’s Day 3rd April 2011

Mother’s Day 2011 is nearly upon us, now if you are anything like myself you might leave this until the last minute and then rush down to the local supermarket to buy a bunch of flowers only to find that everyone else has had the same idea and queues are ridiculous and all of the best flowers have gone.  So this year, why not be prepared in advance and buy something a little different like some traditional sweets that your mother would remember from her school days.  It would be a nostalgic gift with a difference and she would be thrilled with something a little different.  Mothers day only comes but once a year so you should show your love and appreciation for your mother in a way that is a little bit different so that when the gift is received she will be thrilled to bits and you will have a lot to talk about such as  moments in her school days when she would indulge in these traditional sweets on her way to school when she used to visit the local sweet shop.  Sweet Heaven online supply a large selection of retro sweets and gifts that can be used for special occasions such as Mothers day and there can also be a personal message put onto the label and delivered free of charge within the UK. 

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 Fashioned Sweet Shop

There is something about an old fashioned sweet shop, just like the one you would remember from our childhood, the one that would have been just down the road from your house, because in those days there was old fashioned sweet shops dotted around everywhere.  Nowadays you will have to search hard to find old fashioned sweet shops just the way they used to be like the ones you used to remember, because most of them have long since closed down due to the way the world is nowadays.  So if you are looking for a good old fashioned sweet shop the best thing to do would be to search on the internet for the nearest location of one that would be close to you and if you could find one in a decent radius to you then you could always make a visit just to see the wide range of traditional sweets that would fill the shelves and all of the traditional jars that they would be in and to take in all of the pleasant smells that would fill the air.  If there is not one local to you, then you could always make an order from Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop and order all of the old traditional sweets that you used to know and love and just imagine that you are transported back to the good old days and when the sweets arrive just sit back and enjoy.

Retro sweet shops

There are not many retro sweet shops on the local high street nowadays or in the shopping centres the real old fashioned shops where you can buy all the different types of traditional sweets are long since gone.  Why would that be when the demand is so high because people love to buy all of their old favourites from their school days, but on the local high street times have changed where we are dominated by the large supermarkets who pushed out the smaller shops out such as the old retro sweet shops out.  So if you are struggling to find one and there is not one local to you, then you could go online and visit Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop and take a look at our large variety of sweets and gifts that you will remember from days gone by and you can receive free UK 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.
