Those of us over a certain age will hold a sort of nostalgic adoration to some sweets. With Space Dust, Parma Violets, Love Hearts, and Wham Bars reminding us of long summers and particular shared moments in our lives. Who would have thought that a simple bag of pick and mix or a Sherbet Fountain could bring back and unlock some of our brightest childhood memories, and indeed sooth the pain of a scraped knee and bruised ego after falling off your bicycle. Not only do these retro sweets conjure up images of days gone by, days of lesser responsibilities and more fun, with perhaps a glint of mischief, but they give us a chance to remember the games and laughter we had during our youth.

Everyone remembers who they sat and shared their cola cubes with during a riveting maths lesson without trying to get caught, and every single one of us can recall who we saved the special Love Heart sweets for; Kiss Me, All Mine, and Only You. What with all this nostalgia and fond memory, it’s hardly surprising that good old fashioned retro sweets are making a comeback, and in a big way. Everything from the chewy Blackjacks and Fruit Salads to Flying Saucers and Candy Necklaces are giving nostalgic sweet lovers a chance to reignite their love of candy in a way they did in a previous life. Retro sweets and their sentimental significance are the driving force behind a demand, and this demand has paved the way for a whole new generation of sweet lovers to explore the delights and sweets treats their parents and grandparents indulged themselves in.

The sweets that we lovingly refer to as retro are now being enjoyed by all, and not only do they still taste as good as they used to, these retro sweets come with all manner of funny little stories and anecdotes. Old fashioned sweets and candy bring about a sense of sharing and fun, and when bundled up and presented well with a modern twist, the humble pick and mix can make a distinct and much loved gift for that special someone in your life. Whether you want to wish someone you know a happy birthday or are looking to treat someone for Father’s day, Mothering Sunday, an anniversary, passing their driving test or just to make the person you care about smile, retro sweets and candy is a gift that is certainly sure to please anyone and everyone.
