Brownies

Over the last year I have been making special brownie cakes to order for my customers, and for the last few weeks I have been trialling different brownies on a Saturday. I’ve now decided to make the Brownies a special feature on Saturday’s, so every week I will be selling plain chocolate brownies and a flavoured version like Salted Caramel or Cherries with Kirsch.

The brownies are £1.50 each and I can take pre orders if anyone would like to order one, as you will see from the pictures below the brownies are gooey and often decorated with either chocolate, cinder toffee or fruit.


What’s your favourite Retro Sweet?

We’ve just found another poll and apparently the Aniseed ball is Britain’s favourite retro sweet! We’re not too sure about this one, we agree that Aniseed balls are loved by many, but I can also name a few of our regular customers who would rather they didn’t exist! I suppose you either love or hate liquorice and aniseed sweets.

Other retro sweets like Shrimps and Bonbons featured in the poll, which was carried out by Waitrose. Our range of Bonbons are defiantly the most popular sweet with our customers; children love the newer Apple and Sour Raspberry flavours while anyone my age and up likes Strawberry and Lemon. You can’t beat a good bonbon!

Do you agree that Aniseed Balls are you favourite childhood sweet? If not let us know what you like!


Sweetie Nostalgia?

We love chatting to new and old customers in the shop, and a recurring theme to most of our conversations is what sweets we remember as a child. Every customer has a different story about visiting their Grandma’s house and getting spoilt rotten to being constantly told off at school for eating sweeties in class. My favourite story from a customer revolves around gobstoppers. The lady in question always used to buy big gobstoppers to eat in class. Every time she got caught eating her gobstopper the teacher would tell her not to eat any more sweets and to finish the sweet she was eating…..of course gobstoppers tend to last a very long time!

We’ve come across this fab article which talks about how many adults have such emotional attachments to sweets and their packaging. I must admit I love seeing old packaging in museums or on TV. There’s something about how confectionery and cakes were wrapped and there’s a definite difference in size…Whams and Curly Wurly’s! They’ve shrunk…or we’ve got bigger

Do you associate any sweets with particular childhood memories? Or do you miss certain sweets that aren’t available anymore? If I had a pound for every time I was asked about spangles!
