    I always went for the plain toffee in the selection, perhaps as a young boy I found the other flavours too ostentatious (I was an annoying little brat!)

    Ooohhh I loved toffee as a child. I loved plain toffees or toffees covered in milk chocolate or with chocolate inside (like e-clairs). I was never afraid of trying flavoured toffees either – like mint flavoured though I did prefer pure and simple plain toffees though!
    I also preferred the toffees that looked like they had been broken from a slab – lots of different shapes and sizes! It was better for sharing because if I had a bag to share, I would always try and give my friends the small pieces lol and keep the bigger pieces for myself! I also liked the Highland Toffee bars – they type in a wrapper that you could either suck or pull with your teeth so they stretched!
    OMG – looking back I ate lots of toffees – I’m surprised I still have my teeth lol!

    I love toffees, the chewier the better, milk choc ones are my fav, but in honesty, I will easily polish off any type of toffee

  4. Stephanie Green says:

    I ate too many toffees when I was a kid and now have a mouthful of fillings but toffees are no problem to them. I have learnt to suck them and they last longer..

  5. Andy says:

    Oh as soon as I read that there are banana toffees in the selection my mouth started watering. Love them, can’t actually remember how long since I’ve had one though. Just so that I’ve got a heads up, are they the ones in the yellow wrapper?

  6. Kim says:

    I love them all, there isn’t a toffee I don’t like. With the amount I’ve eaten over the years I think I’ve kept a few dentists employed lol.

  7. Suzanne Cooke says:

    A spoonful of toffee helps the medicine go down,
    in the most delightful way!!!!
    And if the medicine is rotten you could always bung the bottle up with the toffee!

    toffee’s make a car trip a little bit easier, the crazier flavours the better esp when getting directions from my bf who likes the tell you your turning is coming up just as you go past it 🙂

  9. trudi law says:

    send some toffees for my three “toughies” , my sons need softening up and shutting up. A pack of toffees will do the trick!

  10. trudi law says:

    please send some toffees for my “toughies”. Three boys who need softening up and and shutting up so im sure a pack of toffees will do the trick!

    I like those Toffee’s and i can not lie
    You other sweet can not deny
    That when a Toffee walks in with a shiny little rap
    and sealed in your face
    you get eaten.
    (sing to the style of i like big butts)

  13. twinsmumplusone says:

    I have 3 very noisy children. Generally they eat very healthily but a special treat of special toffees in a range of flavours would be sooooo exicting for them and the silence that follows as they chew them would be soooooo exciting for me!

  14. JoC says:

    Toffee is seriously under-rated. You definately develop an appreciation for it as you get older. Definately the ‘Godfather’ of sweets. One in each cheek should do it 😉

  15. sandy says:

    Have you ever fed a toffee to your pet (cat or dog)?? keeps them busy for hours and hours and hours and is one of the funniest things in the world. Please don’t report me to the RSPCA, I only did it once LOL.

  17. Ellie says:

    I could do with a tub of these to help keep the noise down in our house – then I can have a brew with a bit of peace and quiet x

  18. samuel thomas says:

  19. Sharon Watson says:

    I am lying sick in bed. i have been here now for four days. a little sweetness would be so lovely 😀 x

  20. Stephen Irving says:

    My little lad ate a toffee, he had wobbly teeth, chewing away & 2 teeth, i from top & 1 for bottom, opposite each other ended up wedged in the toffee….He giggled his little head looking at the toffee with his teeth in & also because he knew the tooth fairy would leave twice as much )

  21. Rebecca says:

    Toffee, Coffee, what else ends in offee?
    NOTHING! I shall tell you why, because they are awesome, and awesome things end in offee.
    mmmm Toffee…. *starts to drool*

  22. Stephanie says:

    I would love some toffee sweets because I haven’t had any for myself yet, I’ve been completely lovely by buying one friend some sweeties for her birthday and another friend some as a house warming gift!

  23. Deirdre says:

    If I won the Chewbz Retro sweet of the week, I would proudly display my Toffee treats on my desk in the office and munch through them while I work… and maaaaaaaaaybe share them with my workmates! 🙂

  24. leanne says:

    wow so pretty + colourful my kids would just love these, they would be so amused by the colours on each wrapper that they would never suspect that really they are for keeping them quiet lol 🙂

  25. sean says:

    alsways getting myself into sticky situations but if i won these it would be in a good way 🙂

    soooooooooooooo love toffee

  26. Rachael C says:

    My sister and I used to scoff these all the time when we were younger until my parents banned us because “they’re bad for your teeth”! So we used to buy some from the corner shop on the way home and sneakily eat them before we got there! These bring back happy memories! 🙂 xxx

  27. katrina walsh says:

    Tasty toffees oh so sticky
    Giving them up is oh so tricky
    Creamy,luxurious and sweet
    They have to be my daily treat

  28. luke younger says:

    NEWSFLASH: “toffee madness has struck the world and now traditional recipes are being targeted for instance toffee fish and chips” please don’t intervene as we all love toffee and the world should be toffee mad!! LOL

  29. jane steels says:

    I cant eat toffees my dentures will fall out, but if I won this wonderful prize I’d give em to my husband, Cos all he ever does is SHOUT!

  30. Sarah Laycock says:

    I cannot tell you the amount of dental work these caused pulling out the toughest fillings, eroding the concrete on my crowns and hey enjoying every mouthful!

  31. Emily Spooner says:

    My neice asked how to get her wobbly tooth out .. I told her I always used a toffee … I’d love to send her these so she could try it out ;O)

  32. Yvonne Brownsea says:

    Usually when I eat toffee, I lose a filling or a bit of tooth as my teeth really aren’t very good, and I hate my teeth anyway, so I love toffee as it helps them on their way out lol 😛 x

  33. Rebecca Denyer says:

    Our dog always hangs around us till we give him one if we have toffees, its so funny to watch him chewing them as his teeth get all stuck together

  34. Jennifer Kelly says:

    Weeeeeeeeeeeee, Banana toffee!!!!! I haven’t had that since I was a nipper. I’d love to introduce these to my kids, nom!

  35. Jo Boyd says:

    Are they chewy toffees or hard ones? My Grandpa used to have a special little hammer just for smashing up hard toffee into bit sized pieces!

  36. Kelly Hooper says:

    The last time I ate toffee, i crunched down on something hard and found that it had pulled out one of my teeth!
