Pick and mix…what’s not to love?

Old school or modern pick and mix favourites

Sweets are loved wherever they're sold or offered - be it at car boots sales, the local shops or as favours at weddings. And the great thing about them is that they're for all ages – not just kids! Gone are the days of penny sweets, but there are still lots of retro sweets for the adults to choose from. Classics like flying saucers can be found in most pick and mix stalls and dolly mixtures will always readily available. The modern-day sweets are usually more jelly based and now incorporate popular treats all the way from the USA. Whatever you're into, your sweet tooth is sure to be satisfied!
