1. Flying saucers

Flying saucers were the BEST sweets around. These papery, sherbet-filled sweets are sure to bring back memories of eating them in the school playground or as an after school treat. Get some flying saucers here.

2. Parma violets

You either loved these or fizzers and they were definitely in a party bag! If you miss these you can get a pack of 50 here. P.S for all the gin lovers, there’s also a parma violet gin which you can get here.

3. Candy necklace

Candy necklaces were the coolest jewellery to rock! These were also perfect when you had the matching bracelet or if you were ultra-cool…the watch. Get a pack of 10 candy necklaces here.

4. Sugar mice

Sugar mice are definitely the perfect sweet-fix for anyone who is craving sugar. Get these tasty sugar mice here.

5. Edible money

There was always that one kid in class that would pretend to eat paper but it was just edible paper! This classic rice paper sweet is a real blast from the past. Get the edible money here.

6. Candy lipstick

This was my absolute favourite! This sweet treat was definitely one which everyone felt super cool having. Relive your childhood by getting them here.

7. Rainbow sherbet straws

These 5p straws were the best because you could get 20 for a pound from your local sweet shop. The only annoying thing about this sugary treat was if the sugar got stuck at the top, making you have to throw it away! Get a pack of 300 here.

8. Strawberry bonbons

You were either a strawberry fan or a toffee fan with this classic sweet. Which one were you? Get strawberry bonbons here or if you were a toffee fan, get them here.

9. Foam shrimp and bananas

These foam sweets were definitely one of the best, with a close tie to milk bottles! Does anyone know what flavour the shrimp actually are? Asking for a friend…Get these delicious foam sweets here.

10. Rainbow drops

These classic sweets were even mentioned in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie! Even though they are all meant to be the same flavour, does anyone else have a colour preference or just me? Get your own bags here.
