Everyone likes sweeties… so today’s prize reflects that, and the fact that I’m an 80s child!

I’m giving away (to one winner) some rainbow drops, a mega lolly, a drumstick lolly and two packs of love hearts.Β  That is if I don’t eat them before the competition ends!

    I HAVE to have milk bottle and sweetie strawberries from Haribo. Then I have to have the cables. Usually by the time David reaches in my bag I have eaten them all….. no wonder I am Mrs Blobby

    Oh good question well…….. Used to always be shrimps but don’t know if it is me but they don’t taste the same anymore??! So now it would be dolly mixtures or fried eggs πŸ™‚ oh want sweets now!!!

    I always go for fizzy cola bottles or strawberries. I sed to work in a cinema and when I was on the pick & mix counter I’d spend all day “testing” the sweets lol


  6. Yvonne Crossland

    Don’t like any of the fizzy tangy ones, I tend to go for either jelly sweets (like haribo) or chocolate mice/buttons.


    Pink pigs, white chocolate mice and those big jelly strawberries.

  8. Katie Russell

    I like the white chocolate mice plus cola bottles etc and white choc with hundreds and thousands on too,they are my favourite.

  9. Karen C

    it has to be those lovely big strawberries – can’t get enough of them x @kazcuz

  10. Jo Kelly

    Oh soooo hard to choose one, I like the same as you! Milk bottles, shrimps & banana’s (yum) and those big jelly chewy strawberries!! I like the green & white sweets in the Haribo too πŸ™‚

  11. Keziah

    It really depends! I often get the bonbons, then jelly beans and then the apple cables, and if they have them, the really long jelly snakes πŸ˜€

  12. Charis McConnell

    i used to like flying saucer sherbert things but they’re hard to find now… but i like fizzy sweets so lets go for a traditional fizzy cola bottle

  13. Trudi Walsh

    I go for the pink shrimp thingys, I used to buy loads of them as a kid!


  14. Clair

    Has to be either cola bottles, gummy bears or gummy rings … yummmm πŸ˜›

  15. Laura Hadland

    I chuffin loves Rainbow Drops. However, white mice, cola bottles, or those little chocolate drops with hundreds and thousands on are great in a 10p mix.

    Do you still get those?


  16. Jennie

    The first thing would have to be the while choc or milk choc buttons covered in hundreds and thousands, then the cola bottles, then if they have them some from of chewy sweet or lolly!!

  17. Ruth Longville

    Can only be fizzy sour sugar dummies or cola bottles – sets your tastebuds on fire!!! Xxxx

  18. Emma Sant

    Probably the white chocolate buttons with the hundreds and thousands sprinkle things on them. Go for the light stuff, it’s cheaper. πŸ˜‰
