The kids love these as much as the adults did. The adult jumped back to their childhood when they were eating these and the kids enjoyed trying old sweets and enjoyed them as much as the adults did. This is a good xmas present or a good selection for dinner parties or celebration. I would recommend this to anyone as everyone enjoys going back in time to when sweets were at there best.

i bought the retro sweet box for my niece for her 13th birthday. She was having a party with all her friends, but by party time the sweets were all gone. She loved them and being only 13, she hadnt heard of most of them (the sweets that is - not her friends !!). Truth is, I wish I had bought one for myself because they bring back so many memories from childhood. What a great idea having them all boxed up in the same pack. Well done IWOOT

Great - but too many Parma Violets!

I bought a Retro Sweet Box for my husband and one for my brother-in-law (two men in their mid-thirties, but little boys at heart) for their birthdays. They both went down a treat - forget the laptop - it was all about this! I bought my husband his first. His face was like a child opening a... LEGO Star Wars thing. His eyes lit up. He didn't know where to start - he just knew not to start with the horrible, soap-tasting Parma Violets. Despite it being 8 o'clock in the morning, he couldn't resist the sweet, retro taste of a cola cube. And he wasn't sharing it with anyone... A few weeks later it was his brother's birthday. As he had been so excited by this present (I needn't have got him anything else), he suggested we get him this. His brother's eyes lit up similarly. I don't think it's a boy thing. I begged for a sweet, and he guarded it for a while, but he left it for two minutes and during that time I grabbed myself a bit of sugar, and with it a piece of my childhood! Mmmm... This box turns men into boys, women into girls, and if you're buying for yourself, it will bring back the child in you. It will conjure up happy memories (okay, that might be the sugar, but who cares?!). Overall, it's an absolute delight... The one downside? The fact that there are so many Parma Violets when I know hardly anyone who likes them. Mind you, I guess if someone asks for a sweet, you could give them a pack of those... Luck of the draw,!

I bought the Retro Sweet Box and turned into a 10 year old when it arrived. I couldn't believe how a box of sweets could take me back. I loved every sweet in this box and would recommend it to everybody, children and adults alike. Adults will love visiting the past and the kids will just love the fact that it's a box full of sweets.

The Retro Sweet Box is so awesome for the little ones, teenagers, mums and dads and the older generation. Filled with so many of the old favourites that hark back to my childhood. The price is also very reasonable as to buy these sweets individually would cost far more. I often buy sweets at Christmas for the kids and grandkids and the Retro Sweet Boxes would be a great saving for me. I may even buy myself one in secret!
