The Sweetest of Gifts with Swizzels Plus Giveaway

Sweets are the perfect treat to be enjoyed across the generations. For adults, certain sweets can transport them back to their childhood, to memories of pick n' mix in a paper bag! I have fond memories of walking to the local corner shop with my Nan with ten pence in my hand to pick my favourite sweets! What a treat! And for my Nan, the taste of sweets reminds her of precious childhood days with her sisters. For my six year old little boy, sweets are the ultimate treat for him and as far as he's concerned, no party bag is complete without them! 



In recent years there has been a real revival of retro sweets. Vintage, classic sweets stir up wonderful nostalgic memories and so who can resist them? Sweet company Swizzels are the inventors of all those much loved classic and iconic sweets including Love Hearts, Drumsticks, Parma Violets and Refreshers, to name just a few. Launched in 1928, Swizzels are one of the longest running sweet companies in the world and with new, tasty sweets being launched over the years including the much loved Squashies, they continue to go from strength to strength. 


But one thing has changed since the invention of these popular sweets all those years ago and that's the introduction of online shopping. This means that all your favourite sweets can be purchased from the comfort of your home and delivered right to your doorstop. This makes them ideal to purchase for birthdays, Christmas and a whole host of special occasions or for that 'just because' gift. They also make great last minute gifts. And what's more, for a truly individual gift, Swizzels Love Hearts can be personalised! I am confident that my six year old boy would love to receive a hamper of Swizzels sweets just as much as my Nan would, although she's more likely to share them!! 


The lovely people at Swizzels have kindly provided me with a 5kg Swizzels Party Sweet Tub (RRP £24.99) to give away to one lucky winner.

Filled to bursting with 5kg of Swizzels yummy retro sweets – including Drumsticks, Parma Violets, Love Hearts and much more – this tub is the perfect way to get any party started. You could use it to style a candy buffet, to create party bags, or even to stash away for those days when your sweet tooth gets the better of you!
