Sweet Memory Lane


As a kid, a trip down to our local sweet shop every couple of days was what we used to spend my pocket money on, this or marbles, it's different nowadays as my kids prefer to spend their pocket money on video games and/or apps. We would take our pocket money, grab a little paper bag and fill it up with as many sweets as possible - go home and eat as many as we could - We would swap and share, my favourites were bonbons and sherbet lemons.

Sweet Memory Lane is a traditional family run sweet shop with a very modern twist, based in the lovely market town of Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire.  A delightful traditional sweet shop that has every taste catered for and more; with a fantastic array of different sweets and gift ideas, and all available on their online shop.

For this review I was sent the Traditional Sweet Shop Box which includes:

  • Sherbet Lemons: My favourite
  • Butterscotch
  • Barley Sugars
  • Humbugs 
  • Sherbet Fountain - This transported me back to my childhood.
  • Sugar Mouse - I haven't seen one of these since I was a kid. 
What a great box of sweets, with packets of sweets in traditional little paper bags, and the box wrapped very attractively; the presentation is very appealing and would be great for a gift.  So if you want to treat yourself to some sweets, or you have someone fussy or awkward to buy a gift for, then Sweet Memory Lane may be the place to look out.

For just £12.50 you will receive a box full of traditional sweet goodies.
