Review: Sweets For My Sweet, Sugar For My Belly

by S1m

When someone very kindly offers you the opportunity to fill a jar full of retro sweets for a review it’s very hard to say no. Knowing that Liv generally has treats for herself, this was my chance to be utterly selfish for once and be a real mean Mummy and choose a jar filled with wonderful sweets all for me… all mine! Or so I thought!

Clicking onto The Gob Stopper site is very hard, try yourself and I guarantee you will drool at the lovely delights you are faced with. I love retro sweets – there truly is nothing better.

The Click ‘n’ Mix selection allows you to fill a Kilner jar (my mum was very impressed – I was impressed that Liv wouldn’t be able to open the jar… I was wrong!) starting with the small size for £9.99 for 3 different sweet options right through to the large jar for £39.99 with the choice of 10 different sweets. Perfect for parties!

It was hard to choose just 3 sweets and I opted for Lemon BonBons (ultimate favourite), White Chocolate Pebbles and Chocolate Raisins… perfect for comfort eating in front of the tv when Liv is in bed.

The jar was really well wrapped when it arrived, Liv honed in on the bubble wrap whilst my mum honed in on the jar.The smell that greeted us upon opening the jar was absolutely delicious and the sweets upon tasting even more so. It was ram packed full of calories, which my mum was very quick to point out.

This is possibly why when I returned from a Hen party weekend in Wales I found that the jar was two thirds empty 🙁 The presentation is fab and adds to the retro feel – I am seriously considering these for party ideas in the future to have as centre pieces or as some kind of focal point. I may even look into a jar filled purely with Lemon BonBons just for me 🙂

Such a fab idea – the jar is great and I am sure Liv will find a use for it 🙂

They look delicious. I loved mine and the jar is gorgeous. I reckon they’d make a great present for someone too.

They are seriously yummy – they definitely make a fab present idea!

Love the jar!
Birthday soon, must leave non-cryptic clues around the house ;).

The jar is amazing – such good quality and makes the whole sweet jar that much better. They keep fresh in there… though they clearly don’t last that long!!

Not sure I dare venture over to their website, I would definitely end up buying at least one jar!

Jen @mymummyspennies August 9, 2013 - 10:32 pm

oooh yummy! I LOVE lemon bonbons!

Sim August 9, 2013 - 10:51 pm

Hands off cheeky – I didn’t get as many as I would have liked… seriously considering buying a big jar of lemon bonbons just for me 😛

Red Rose Mummy August 9, 2013 - 10:34 pm

I love this idea, such pretty presentation and tasty contents!

Sim August 9, 2013 - 10:50 pm

I loved the fact they were all mixed up so it was a surprise pick every time!

Nice selection! Those are 3 of my favourites, plus I love Kilner jars too. We have 2 cookie jars and it’s hilarious you thought Liv wouldn’t be able to open them – my youngest could open them fine at 18 months! 😀

Sim August 12, 2013 - 9:30 am

Good selection indeed… a nice little surprise in every handful 🙂 Nope they can certainly open the jars 🙁 even my parents can 🙁

AtoZ Mummy August 12, 2013 - 8:26 am

Mmmmmmm I love lemon bonbons!

Sim August 12, 2013 - 9:19 am

So do I… so do I!!
