When I’m browsing the confectionary aisle at the supermarket, there can be row upon row of mouthwatering sweets, chocolate and other sugar based snacks and yet I can’t decide what to choose.  When I stumble on the retro candy shelf, it all changes and I want to fill my trolley with Refresher Chews, Floral Gums and Sherbet Pips.

I may be all grown up, with teenagers of my own, but you can’t take away the cravings of a 70s and 80s kid.  There was nothing better than going to the local sweet shop and gazing at the goodies on offer, making a purchase and scoffing the lot before you got home.  Well, it saved the bother of sharing!
