Retro sweet of the week!

We’re spoiling you again this week with another British sweetshop classic as our Retro sweet of the week!

Here in the Chewbz office, we all agree that this sweet was a big part of our childhood. While we weren’t always allowed the fizzy drink, we often managed to sneak in a few of these before dinner!

We’re of course talking about…

Cola Cube

Cola Cubes!

Sugar coated with a lovely red colour, Cola Cubes are just a proper retro treat!

We use yummy Frosties Kola Kubes in our Chewbz but as a special trip down memory lane, this weeks winner will get a whole jar of traditional square Cola Cubes 🙂

All you need to do to be in with the chance of winning is leave a comment on this post. Tell us why you’re loving (or even hating) this weeks choice, and our favourite comment will win the sweet pize!

The competition will close at 9am, next Monday 7th February.

    OMG Cola cubes were the one sweet I was not allowed as a child, so of course it was the one sweet I used to buy with my pocket money!! 🙂

    i remember always wondering how they got the cola to stick into a cube, fascinating as a child :)much better than cola pips, especially when they go a bit soft on the outside and then crunchy on the middle and it was amlost impossible not to chew them.

    I love Cola-Cubes (think the ones I used to get from the sweetie shop were called Kola-Kubes, they certainly didn’t help my spelling!). I’d always previously bought fizzy cola bottles when I got my ‘quarter of’ sweets, but one week they’d run out and this was the suggested 2nd choice. Became my firm favourite, mainly because they lasted a little bit longer and you could play ‘who can suck their sweet the longest before they crunch the cube!’

    ‘A 1/4 of cola cubes’ God that brings back memories! Buying them from Gashie’s corner shop on Northside Workington, which is now someone’s house. I remember putting them in a glass of lemonade to see if it turned into Coke – it didn’t work!
