Retro sweet of the week

Happy Monday Chewbz fans :).

After a few weeks of loud and bright retro sweets, we thought it was about time we gave a more traditional treat it’s time in the spotlight.

This weeks Retro sweet of the week is…

Bullseyes

Bullseyes!

These delicious stripy sweets pack a mega minty punch! A great wintry treat, we’ve been treating ourselves to a few of these during this cold/freezing snap. They’ve even got us feeling a bit… Christmassy*!

We don’t currently sell these boiled beauties, but we’re always looking to expand our range, so if you’re a fan of these then please let us know!

If you would like to get your hands on a lovely lookin’ little jar of Bullseys, just leave a comment on this post. Tell us why you would love to try these minty treats, and our favourite comment will win.

All comments must be received by 9am next Monday, the 31st October.

* Start preparing your lists for Santa, It is only 8 festive weeks to go sweetie fans!

    I used to eat these on long car trips to the beach or to see family when I was a little kid! Memories – sucking my way through a bag of these and listening to UB40 tapes 🙂

  2. Carolyn Watt says:

  7. JoC says:

    Ahhh..Bullseyes – closely related to traditional ‘humbugs’ but spherical in shape rather than oblong. These minty little balls certainly hit the spot as their name suggests and only Scrooge would begrudge them being shared around 😉

  8. K DUNN says:

    My partner told me he loved these when he was younger and i have never been able to find them for him!! definitely a xmas present for him! i have never even tried them!

    I love mint sweets and I think with christmas coming up I’d be able to eat the entire jar guilt free.

  10. Nikki says:

  11. Pamela Gossage says:

    Love these they remind me of when I was at Junior School.On your Birthday you stood at the front of the Assembly and the Headmaster gave you a Bullseye at the end.

  12. Carol Peace says:

    This would take me right back to my childhood and sadly my parents are no longer with us so I would really love to win them.

  13. Stephanie Green says:

    These remind me of visits to my grandad. He would offer you one, but he had to give it to you incase you took more than the one.

  14. Andy says:

    These remind me of a seaside visit when I was younger. I loved to buy a jar from the stall with my holiday pocket money. I was tempted by the toffee dummies and sticks of rock but the bullseye always caught my … ;0)

  15. tony lathwell says:

    wow have not had these for years! would love to try these again after all these years, before it’s time for the dentures!

  16. Natty says:

  17. Samantha says:

    My boyfriend has never tried them and we love a game of marbles… I think these would be a delicious replacement!

  18. Sarah Birkett says:

    Love anything minty, and it makes your breath fresh too. I used to eat these onthe long week home from school when I was little, maybe I could encourage my children to walk home if they had these to eat at the same time

  19. cheryl lovell says:

  24. Sylvia Witham says:

    I won some coconut mushrooms
    But I didn’t win your Flumps
    I’ve still a smile upon my face
    I didn’t get the grumps
    But a jar of Bullseyes you don’t sell
    Would warm a winter’s day
    So I’ll keep my fingers crossed
    And hope they come my way

  25. lindagraham says:

    I would love to try these sweets as my father and mother in-law(in their 80’s & 90’s) absolutely adore these. I love all types of sweets but I am on a dairy free diet so am limited in what I can have.

  26. carol coldicott-stirmey says:

    I’d like to try them as I like minty taste, the dark,sultry colour,would mean less speed more haste,as I would rush to enjoy them,at an alarming pace

  27. mary hughes says:

    Mint normally wakes me up, so I’d love to try these to see if they can keep me bright eyed and bushy tailed while I’m staring at the computer screen all day!

  28. pauline codd says:

    there’s a little cow somewhere that would deeply wish to be in favour with bulls eyes…oops it’s me.

  29. Sandy Paterson says:

    I’m not going to write anything slushy to make you pick me, I’m just going to say , they are very very yummy and would quite happily hoarde all these to myself if I won them 🙂

  30. kate lancaster says:

    These look absolutely gorgeous (and rather stylish) – would love to be able to share them round at work 🙂

  32. Doug Barnes says:

    Aah! Nostalgia!
    I’d like to give my young daughter a taste of nostalgia and make it future nostalgia too!

  33. VIVIAN ALLMAN says:

    my other half loves these….and what better time to win them…i could save them for his christmas present 🙂

  34. Jane Paddey says:

    This brings back memories – I remember these – didn’t they try doing some red Bullseyes at one time.

  35. Andy says:

    I love Bullseye, I used to watch it every day……

    Oh, sorry, I’ve got the wrong end of the stick.

    Ok, Ok, Id love these sweets because i remember my Grandad eating these, and never giving me one to try. I’d love to turn the tables on him.

  36. Rebecca Denyer says:

    My Grandad always used to have a 1/4 of Bullseyes in his pocket to share with us, they always remind me of him
