Sweet Memories! Retro Sweets From AQuarterOf

by - Friday, August 07, 2015

What are some of the things you remember most from your childhood? If you're a 90's kid like me, it probably involves things like practicing your best yoyo tricks (and nearly having someone's eye/ front teeth out in the process) swapping Pokemon cards and being a slush puppy connoisseur with your Mr Frosty machine. On the weekends I'd skip down to the shop to buy a '50p mix', a magical selection of things like Black Jacks, Fruit Salads, aniseed balls and foam shrimps. I have to admit I thought these things were gone forever, I've had pick and mix a few times in the last couple of years but it's never the same and you can rarely find the old classics. However I was recently introduced to AQuarterOf, a traditional sweet shop selling all of the childhood favourites I can remember so well. I have to admit I'm hugely excited about this, what better way to take a trip down memory lane?! 

As well as big boxes of your favourite childhood goodies, they also have filters which allow you to choose sugar free, gelatine free and gluten free sweets from their huge selection. One of my favourite parts of the site is the sweet hampers section, next time I'm stuck wondering what to buy for someone this will be my first port of call- who wouldn't love a selection of retro sweets? Everything is really nicely packaged, and there's something for all budgets and occasions. 

What are your favourite retro sweets?
