Retro sweets are still as popular as ever! They provide that wonderful sense of nostalgia for adults and with so much colour and flavour great excitement for kids too. For adults, there's nothing quite like a trip down memory lane. Remember flying saucers, black jacks, chewy tobacco, white mice? They're an amazing fun gift for any occasion and will take you back to your childhood in an instant. Believe it or not, the most popular occasion is for 'get well'! They may not be healthy but a candy jar will please any sweet tooth, will hopefully bring a smile, and make you a little bit better. And what genuine way to make anyone smile than with a fun sweet hamper!
What is it we love about sweets so much? It's hard to believe that confectionary in one form or another goes back to ancient times! Sweets of course are of very low nutritional value but throughout the ages the benefit of this has been they are extremely high in calories so were valued as a high food energy source. This is the case throughout the last century too.
Today the choice of sweets available is overwhelming! From lollipops and candy bars to cotton candy and snack food, from rich dark truffles or sweet fudge. We simply find sweet treats irresistable! We know they're bad for us. But why not indulge just a little on a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary? Go ahead and treat your loved one to an indulgent sugary treat today!
