  •  Eat your way down memory lane and keep your dentist in business
  •  Contains 11 of the very finest sweets you can remember
  •  May have an adverse effect on your concentration/productivity
  •  Your welcoming gateway to sweet sugary delirium


Remember Fizzy Cola Bottles? White Chocolate Fish and Chips? If you do then there's no doubt that you're currently paying regular visits to your dentist to try and reverse the effect of these regretful childhood indulgences.

Who are we kidding? Those were the greatest days of our lives. Scraping together whatever money you had, racing to the sweet shop, over-filling paper bags with delicious pick n' mix, being astounded at the cost, and then eating it all until we passed out or started hallucinating ancient deities. Sweets were a part of growing up.

While we don't sell a time machine as such, we can take you right back to the corner store of your candy-coated memories with our Firebox of Retro Sweets.

Lovingly prepared by The Shoreditch Confectionery Emporium, this nostalgic box of wonder houses 11 of the very best sweets you can remember: Giant Refreshers, Fizzy Cola Bottles, Barratts Shrimps, White Chocolate Fish and Chips, Black Jacks, Gobstoppers, Kola Kubes, Rhubarb and Custards, Space Dust and Aniseed Balls.

It's a dieticians nightmare, and your welcoming gateway to sweet sugary delirium.

Firebox says: Yes they certainly will be Brian! Preorder now to ensure you get it in time for Christmas!
My mum and dad bought 2 of these for me and my 3 other siblings and we had them finished in about a week. The gobstoppers and cola bottles are very very nice, they where finished first. More of them and no white chocolate fish and chips please, we didn't like them.
