Nostalgic Sweets

Nostalgia - that warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you think about the past - can come from all sorts of different places. It could be a catch-up with an old friend, a film you once saw in the cinema, a song you haven't heard for years...

...or it could be a jar of the sweets you used to eat when you were little! Sweets in the City have a range of nostalgic sweets that are sure to send you back down memory lane.

Jar of nostalgic sweets

Our Retro Classic jar is filled to the brim with all the nostalgic sweets you remember from the school playground, including...

Nostalgic Flying Saucer Sweets

Flying Saucers

Can you think of a sweet more nostalgic than flying saucers? The mere sight of these colourful sherbet-filled treats is enough to take you straight back to the school tuck shop! Flying saucers are consistently ranked among the UK's favourite sweets, and it's not hard to see why.

Did you know? Flying saucer sweets are Belgian. They were created by an Antwerp-based company that originally sold communion wafers.

Nostalgic Sweets - Love Hearts

Love Hearts

First sold in 1954, Love Hearts have been an enduringly popular treat for generation after generation of British sweet lovers. The little message on each sweet makes them almost as fun to share as they are to eat - they might even take you back to your very first crush!

Did you know? Love Hearts have always moved with the times. When text messaging first took the world by storm, messages like 'luv u' and 'how r u' started appearing in packets of Love Hearts. Nowadays, your pack of Love Hearts may well contain a few sweets with emojis on them!

Black Jacks and Fruit Salad Sweets

Fruit Salads & Black Jacks

Sweets don't come much more nostalgic than this! Black Jacks have been around for nearly 100 years now, and while both Black Jacks and Fruit Salads are yummy on their own, we happen to think they're best when they're mixed together. It's a nostalgic match made in sweet heaven!

Did you know? An original Black Jack wrapper from the 1920s is on display at the V&A Museum of Childhood in London.


All of these nostalgic sweets - and more besides! - can be found in our best-selling Retro Classic selection, available in the following sizes:
