What could beat chowing down on mouth-watering milk teeth? Or devouring some delicious dew drops? Or perhaps some luscious liquorice flyers? Old fashioned sweets from the 70s have become a huge part of the confectionery industry over the past 10 years with a steep increase in popularity.
Nostalgic sweets come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colours and flavours. Let's start with a well-known classic, Anglo Bubbly. The original bubble gum blows some of the biggest bubbles we've ever seen. The iconic packaging of Anglo Bubbly can be seen from a long distance away. The blue and pink colourings are just everywhere!
