A Brief History of Boiled Sweets
Boiled sweets have a special place in British confectionery history. Created by boiling sugar, water, and flavourings, these sweets are known for their long-lasting taste. They gained prominence in the early 19th century and have been a staple in British households since then. From Army and Navy to Aniseed Twists, each variety offers a unique burst of flavour.
Why Sherbet Lemons Are Irresistible
When it comes to our bestsellers, Sherbet Lemons top the list. These delightful citrus treats, filled with fizzy sherbet, are a tangy surprise that many can’t resist. They bring back memories of summers spent at grandma’s house or those long drives in the countryside. Sherbet Lemons are more than a sweet; they are nostalgia personified.
Spotlight: Army and Navy Sweets
Army and Navy sweets are another classic. Made with liquorice and herbs, they were originally thought to help alleviate colds and flu. While we can’t vouch for their medicinal properties, their soothing flavour definitely brings comfort.
The Twisting Tale of Aniseed Twists
Aniseed Twists, with their unique spiral design and aromatic aniseed flavour, are a true joy for the senses. These sweets are especially popular during Christmas and New Year’s but make for a delightful treat year-round.
