I loved our local sweetshop when I was young. I spent ages in there looking at the rows of jars of brightly coloured confectionery. They were mostly boiled sweets that used to go all sticky in my little white paper bag. Then there were the old fashioned sweets under the counter – they were the fun sweets like sugar mice and gobstoppers.
You don’t seem to get traditional sweets like that anymore, and most of the old-fashioned sweetshops have disappeared too. So here is my top 5 of my favourite retro sweets you can’t get anymore…
- Aztec Bars
- Mint Cracknell
- Texan Bars
- Bazooka Joe Bubblegum
But the great news for me is that you can still buy a lot of the old fashioned sweets that I remember from when I was young. I found this old fashioned sweetshop online called http://www.aquarterof.co.uk – take a look, it’s brilliant to be able to buy your favourite sweets online!
