It’s nice to have a sweet treat every now and again and nothing beats a good old box of old retro sweet favourites.
I can already hear the do gooders and health freaks reading the words “Sweet club” and screaming at the screen, but as the saying goes “A little of what you fancy does you good” I think the very thought and sheer anticipation of a monthly box of sweets is far too good for many to resist.
The Sweet Club is exactly what it says on the tin. A club or what’s now become known as a subscription service and all about sweets, every month and delivered straight to the door, no going shops, no queing and no hassle.
The sweet boxes come either monthly or fortnightly and each box comes with a choice of 8 bags of sweets. The sweet selection is vast with an assortment of old retro favourites combined with more well known choices of today. Sweet categories include chocolate, chewy, hard, liquorice, Pre packed, fudge, lollies and even a selection of American candy.
The sweet selection can be changed every month or kept the same and each box will contain approx 800g of sweets each time.
I of course was more than happy to try out sweet box and the moment it arrived, any healthy eating ideas went totally out of the window.
The hard part was deciding which 8 sweet packs I wanted as each time I made a choice I then spotted other things I wanted.
I chose refreshers, Choc icy cups, Choc lick, Choc fudge crunch, Almond Nougat, Bunch of Cherries and Sour apple belts. Lots of old favourites in my box.
There was one other item in my box. This little treat stood out from the start as it’s something I have been wanting to try for a while but I just could not find them anywhere. This is the hostess Twinkie which is like a sweet little cake found in the American section.
Yes Sweet Club seems to have it all for sweet and candy lovers like me. Those hard to find and long forgotten childhood favourites can all be found lurking around these special monthly boxes.
The subscription is £9.95 per month with a special introductory first box offer for just £7.95. Boxes can be stopped and started as you please.
