Retro sweets, chocolate and other sweet memories
Recognise those sweets on the right? Yes, flying saucers of course. Did you know they have been the UK's favourite retro sweet for many years?
First introduced in the 1960's by the Belgium company Astra Sweets, flying saucers have been a staple for children through the 60's, 70's and 80's.
Perhaps today their main consumers are adults?
Other strong favourites among British sweet shoppers are kola kubes, blackjacks, rhubarb and custard, nerds, sherbet fountain and bon-bons. All of which are still available today.
