Product Description

Product Description

Maxons has been making quality confectionery since 1927, while Dixons which is now owned by Maxons has been doing so since the 1880s. Still based in Sheffield today and run by the 3rd generation of the Pitchfork family who took Maxons over in the 1950s. Maxons still produces to the same recipes and standards as they always have, and in keeping with this since 2009 Maxons now make 99% of their products with no artificial colours or flavours (this product being one of them). Maxons Yorkshire Mixture is an iconic Maxons product. If you are a Yorkshire based boiling house you should make a Yorkshire Mixture but Maxons don’t just make ‘a’ Yorkshire Mixture they make ‘the’ Yorkshire Mixture. A mixture of some of the finest Fruit Rock available, fruit flavoured Fish, Pear Drops, fruit flavoured and mint Humbugs, this is Yorkshire Mixture the way a Yorkshireman likes it, full of flavour and with products you would recognise. Maxons have taken us all a step back in time to package their famous old sweets in a Victorian Style plastic jar which is ideal for gifts or to have on your desk at work or on a coffee table at home and share with everyone who needs to know how an old fashioned boiled sweet should taste.

These sweets have a wide variance in tastes from minty to fruity and would suit everyone. They are a true throw back to the quality tasting sweets remembered when I was a child, bringing back many memories. Two things did disappoint however - the triangular pyramid sweets have sharp corners which may damage a child's mouth and I am sure the "Victorian Sweet Jar" should be glass, not blow moulded plastic.

This is a pretty small jar and, really, doesn't have many sweets in it at all. The jar is also that soft kind of plastic (like the kind water bottles are made from), and so isn't very sturdy.

I don't mind so much, as I got this for a work Secret Santa, and we only have a £5 limit. But I imagine if I'd got this as a 'real' present, or for myself, I may have be disappointed

I find the acid in these sweets a bit too much for my mouth. The flavours are nice and fruity, but I find they burn the roof of my mouth. I wont be buying any more for myself, though I gave a large jar to my father and he loves them and wants more.
I found some less harsh sweets for myself here on Amazon (Go Organic hard candies)and so will be sucking on those instead.

Was delighted to spot these on Amazon as these were my husbands favourites years ago. The sweet jar is very handy as they keep the sweets for going soft and attractively packaged. Flavours brilliant.

Well done Maxons of Sheffield i say .

A nice mix of traditional fruit sweets and mint humbug. Quite sweet so we will enjoy only one or two whilst out walking which is when my husband and I eat sweets.
