Blog: Cutting edge retro

Catherine Sleep | 2 March 2006

Chocolate tools, flying saucers, strawberry bootlaces, sherbet dip dabs, fizzers… if like me you did some of your growing up in the 70s, you probably reminisce fondly about such sweet delights. When did they disappear? Did the sugar police finally catch up with them?

I have good news: we need mourn their passing no more, for a new website has come to our rescue. And do you know what? They were out there all the time, satisfying sweetshop devotees in forgotten corners of civilisation (excepting chocolate tools - see below). And what’s more, we can order them online. Nothing retro about that, is there?
