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!

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!
