5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant bundle
Got this box of retro sweets to cheer my mum up and she absolutely loved it. Mum was delighted with her trip down memory lane, with fruit salads, refreshers, drumsticks and loads more. Oh and not forgetting the candy whistle (which she enjoyed making a racket with!). Great gift, superb value for money! (the box on its own probably cost a couple of quid) - Worth every...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not many sweets
This arrived today. Not a great deal of sweets for £4.50. It looks like much more in the images. Looking at the profile picture for this item, I can see that there is double the number of sweets (inside and outside the box). This makes it look like you get a great deal more than what is actually in there.

Oh and not forgetting the candy whistle (which she enjoyed making a racket with!). Great gift, superb value for money!

Thanks Chocolate Buttons :)

Pretty disappointed with the size of these and lack of sweets inside. Will have to buy something else to go with it as a present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its cute but I didn't like all of them, 10 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Retro Mini Treasure Mix - LETTERBOX BUSTER! Crammed Full Of Mouthwatering Old Fashioned Retro Sweets - Perfect Inexpensive Christmas Gift, Secret Santa & Stocking Filler (Misc.)
I liked this, the box is cute and the size is good. The only thing i didnt like was how most of the sweets were the chewy type that's the worst for your teeth. I ended up not eating the three big chew bars and the others i didnt like. Although the picture shows two new sweets they've added since I bought it (rainbow drops and dipnlick) I can't tell if they've replaced other sweets or not. I think it would better if the drumstick and refresher bars were 2 mini refresher pieces and a drumstick lolly and other less chewy sweets could be instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars I feel ripped off, 2 Dec. 2014

This review is from: Retro Mini Treasure Mix - LETTERBOX BUSTER! Crammed Full Of Mouthwatering Old Fashioned Retro Sweets - Perfect Inexpensive Christmas Gift, Secret Santa & Stocking Filler (Misc.)
Very very disappointed with this purchase.
This was going to be part of a Christmas gift for my sister but, although the box itself is nice, I would be frankly embarrassed to give her such a small amount of sweets. The good reviews seem to be from when the price was much lower, under £5. I paid £7.40 and feel completely ripped off by what I received. The bars are all mini-sized and some of the items are just single chews. I did try to return it and, although a full refund is offered, the return postage is £6 so not worth returning at all.

If retro sweets were a unique item, unattainable elsewhere, then the price might be justified - but supermarkets are churning out big tubs of them for a fraction of the price.

I regularly write reviews but this is the first time I have ever left a bad review anywhere. I just feel other buyers should be warned what to expect, especially if they are in the same position as I am and money is very tight this year.
I would hate to think of a small child saving up their pocket money to buy this for someone - they would be crushed when they discover the size!

My son wanted this 'section' for xmas, but the box is tiny, so we've not opened it, still wrapped, no way worth a fiver,need to return it for a refund as the quality / quantity is not adequate. We'll just go to your local supermarket or toffee shop and get 10 times as much for a fiver.
