5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye poor teeth I knew you so well. . .
I've bought this good sized box of sweets as a Christmas gift for my very sweet toothed partner who can remember Frys Five Centre chocolate bars! Remember the five flavours in them?

She often laments over the lack of great sweets that were around in the 60's and 70's (mainly chocolate) but I think there's quite a few of the greats in here including Parma...

I've bought this good sized box of sweets as a Christmas gift for my very sweet toothed partner who can remember Frys Five Centre chocolate bars! Remember the five flavours in them?

She often laments over the lack of great sweets that were around in the 60's and 70's (mainly chocolate) but I think there's quite a few of the greats in here including Parma Violets, Refreshers, Black Jacks, Bubbly bubblegum (get in!), Fruit Salads and Tongue Painter Lollipops!

There must be over a kilo of sweets in this well made cardboard cartoon styled box and there is something for everyone.

I'm sure that anybody and especially the over 40's will love this collection of sweets. My fave isn't in here sadly. . .Caramac!

Good mixture of sweets :P

Firstly the box's design is so cool it could be used as it's own "gift wrap".

There were drumsticks in the box, which from previous experience - they do melt if left a while so I chucked them away - I dont like them lol..

I bought this box of sweets as a gift for my daughter's birthday and she was delighted with it. There is a very good selection of sweets for all tastes and they all got shared and eaten. We particularly liked the box that the sweets came in. Really good size and selection. Very pleased. Already have my other children putting in their orders.

3.0 out of 5 stars Much smaller on person, 6 Dec. 2013

From the pictures and description provided I expected it to be much bigger than it actually is. Once it arrived I was disappointed because of how small it is for the amount I paid, but overall a good product.

I bought these as part of my husband's birthday gift and he loved it. There is a good choice of sweets which are fun and represent value for money. The presentation box itself is very appealing, in fact it is so appealing, that despite eating all the sweets that were in it, my husband is now buying sweets to replenish the box! Excellent gift, although a slippery slope in calorie consumption :)

for being packaged and delivered. this box of sweets is easily the best selection for the best value over the whole of amazon. the sweets are of quality, something for everybody and it comes in its own colourful cartoon box. I have repeatedly given this item as a gift and it always gets good feedback from its recipients.

As you can see from the description all of your favourites are in this box. One thing that wasn't clear (to me anyway) is that the 2 250g bags are an assortment of sweets, I thought it was a 250g bag of one type of the sweets listed randomly selected by the picker. It's well packaged and would make a really great present for a sweet tooth...it's an even better present if you buy it for yourself!

Very disappointed with the amount of sweets provided. It was fun to see sweets from the past but overall far to pricey.
