Blog: Rhubarb and Custard

Catherine Sleep | 1 June 2005

Ever wondered if you can still get hold of the same types of sweets you used to buy from the local sweetshop as a youngster? A pub conversation on that very subject inspired Michael Parker to set up an old-fashioned sweetshop on the Internet.

Rhubarb and Custard, Parma Violets, Bonbons, Liquorice Comfits, Flying Saucers and ABC Alphabet Letters are some of the many nostalgic sweets AQuarterOf.co.uk has managed to track down.

And if your favourite sweet is missing, you can let them know and they’ll try to track it down. The website also has a page explaining what happened to some sweets that just aren’t available anymore. Let the nostalgia begin!
