Retro sweet of the week!

After the success of introducing boiled sweets to our retro sweet range, we thought we’d start your week with another classic British sweet!

Here at Chewbz HQ, we’ve got a lot of love for this fruity sweet, and we never seem to have a problem polishing off a jar or two!


We just can’t get enough of the perfect combination of silky smooth custard and fruity rhubarb, mmm…

Just thinking of this yummy boiled sweet makes us feel all summery, and we’re sure it’ll brighten up your January too!

If you’d like to win some Rhubarb & Custard of your own, just leave a comment before 9am on 31st January. Our favourite comment will be chosen next Monday, and the winner will get their hands on a sweet prize 😀

UPDATE: We’re feeling extra sweet this Friday here in the Chewbz office, so we’re now giving away 3 Jars of classic Rhubarb & Custard! To celebrate the fact that it’s Friday, payday is on the horizon and January is almost over, we’ll be announcing 3 lucky winners on Monday!

    Rhubarb and Custard sweets remind me of days gone by,of summer and meadows and birds on high.I drift along as on a cloud until the sweet is done and then i find i have to go and have another one.

    I LOVE RHUBARB AND CUSTARDS! Seriously; what GENUIS (or the plural; Geniusi-si-si-si-si) came up with this treat. One day I hope for it to RAIN Rhubarb and Custards and then the little droplets to embed themselves in farmlands and grow into Rhubarb and Custard tree’s for us all to hop along and pick them down. No one should complain because Rhubarb is one of your five-a-day… even when it is mainly a sugary compound. Face it – the world would be a better place if this was how things happened, fosure.

    Yum-a-tron!!! I love Rhubarb and Custard sweets, which is a bit odd because I loathe the actual vegetable/root/big red-ish stemmy type thing! (Not sure what Rhubarb actually is) Probably because my mum boiled it into a nasty mushy-mush. Can’t been a nice boiled sweet though, great for the car, don’t pull out your fillings! :O

    How come I really love these sweets yet I can’t stand actually rhubarb.The flavour of these are so moorish.:)

  15. Andrea Johnson says:

    Rhubard and custard are amazing! Can you please reassure that they don’t contain the loveable cartoon characters of the same name though please?
