Retro sweet of the week

Earlier today, we announced our best selling retro sweets of the last year.

To celebrate your favourite buys of the year, we thought we would give you the chance to win the number one best selling sweet of 2011…

Giant Stawberry Jar copy

The Giant Strawberry!

These gummy greats were only added to our retro sweet range back in the Spring of last year, so they really have been a hit with all you sweet fans to zoom the number one spot!

100% Chewbz approved (we steal a bag or two from the warehouse… shhh) we agree that these are so so yummy, they are a well deserved champion!

If you would like to win this jar of Giant Strawberries to keep all to yourself (or share if you really have to…) then just leave a comment on this post.

Tell us why these are your favourites too, or why you would like to win, and the comment that puts the biggest smile on our face will nab the free sweets :).

Just make sure you get your comment in before 9am next Monday, the 16th January.

    Me and my children love giant strawberry. As soon as i receive them they disappear. I brought some recently but they magical disappeared again lol x x x

  5. Rachael says:

    I can see why these were the bestseller! They are the ultimate sweet! I remember my first year of secondary school, an ice cream van would park outside the gates at the end of the day and we’d all rush to get the Strawbs before they ran out. They were 5p each then and I’d save up as many pound coins as I could and buy loads. They’d be gone by the next day!!! I’ve not had any in years 🙂

  6. sally says:

  7. Alys Morgan says:

    i love these sweets because the taste delicious and there really chewy. When my sisters and i buy them we have a race to see who can eat them the fastest. When it’s just me i bite the stalks off and eat them like real strawberries, savouring everey last bite! They are the most delicious sweets ever and i always buy them when I go to the sweet shop on mondays. the chewiness makes them last longer and i love the way it sticks in your teeth and you pick it out of your teeth with your tounge. I would like to win this jar of sweets because me and my sisters can have more fun times with these and there my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Natalie says:

  9. Emma Mcleod says:

  11. Louise Chambers says:

    These remind me of the summer we went strawberry picking & our youngest wanted to have the heaviest punnet & she did… but little did we know when we where paying that she’d put pebbles in the bottom of her punnet & we’d ended up paying for them :O
    Yes I think we’ll stick to buying strawberry sweets from the shops rather than going for the real thing 🙂

    These tasty ‘strawberries’ are fun to eat,
    And can be eaten in packs or just as a treat.
    Squidgy and soft, colourful and thin,
    What I lovely thing we’d all LOVE to win.
    If only my cousin was here right now,
    She would envy me so much about how
    I have this lovely chance to win ALL these,
    Not knowing I’d share this with her as a special feast.
    But be grateful, whoever win this jar,
    Because, for a sweet, they’re truly bizzare!
    Like, all those others I’ve bought from here,
    They’ll bring us joy after the Christmas cheer.
    Now, after all that I had to write,
    I will go with these sweets in mind, Good Night. 🙂

    omg!! i love these! they are my fave sweet ever! the only thing is i got 5 kids who love them too. have you ever seen the episode of the simpsons where homer is trying to eat some crisps but everytime he goes to put it in his mouth a puppy jumps from out of nowhere and knicks it from his hand??? that is exactly what its like for me with this sweets i hardly get any!!!

  29. Rebecca Coyne says:

    Giant strawberries top of Chewbz list

    One you dont see so often, and sorely missed.

    I love the giant strawberries so juicy to chew

    Remind me of summer and Wimbledon too.

    So i would love to win a jar of these sweets

    How nice it would be to have a supply of these treats.

    Especially as its so grey, dull, wet and dark

    So please chewbz bring sunshine and like my remark.

  30. Julie Johnson says:

    These sweets are brilliant to see how long you can stretch the Strawberries when in your teeth

  31. Kumari says:

    Reminds me of my High School days when we should’ve been running around the track but instead walked and nommed these strawberrys at the same time. Also they are suitable for vegetarians :D, I need not say more.

  32. Michelle Robertson says:

    I craved these when I was pregnant with my now 8 year old, I miss having an excuse to eat lots at once, so winning a big pot full of strawb goodness would be perfect excuse to indulge. Will also be fun to wind the hubby up that I’m craving again, see if he tuns a bit pale ;-D

  33. Georgina Ball says:

    God I love these! I want to win because I fancy breaking the diet with something really worth it!

  34. amy says:

  35. Victoria says:

    They say Strawberries are good for you and a portion is part of your 5 a day. These count, although they don’t taste quite the same with cream!

  36. Shelley Jessup says:

    Love sweets more now than I did when I was a kid! I think it may be as a kid you always got sweets & as an adult you know how much of a treat it is to have some sweets.
    Strawberries & cola cubes are my favourite, yummy!

  37. Tim says:

    I can’t actually eat these in front of other people as they make me dribble like I used to when I was a baby, 30 years ago. However, if I were lucky enough to win these I hereby promise to eat them in front of my family so they can marvel, or take the mickey, out of my salivating prowess.

  38. Kelly Lyon says:

    I love the way that you can bite into them and chew them up without a problem. All of the juicy flavours in your mouth! Yummy

  39. Tony says:

    yummy! I would LOVE these! I would hoover them up in no time, my Wife could have the jar as I like to be fair!

  40. AMANDA LETCH says:

    “Walk away Amanda from the scrummy Giant Stawberry sweets”, says the voice inside her head”
    But i love them so much ! ” Says Amanda.
    “Well you know what happened last time you ate them” Says the voice inside her head.
    “I promise i won’t eat them all at once this time and i will share ” say’s Amanda
    “Ok then ,you can have some” say’s the voice inside her head
    “Thank you, voice inside my head ” Say’s Amanda

  41. Sarah Sutton says:

    These remind me so much of the cinema when I was little 🙂 my mum used to help me squish as many as I could into the pick and mix tubs and when I was near the end I’d suck them to try and make them last even longer. Favorite sweets of all time no contest.

    I would LOVE to win these sweeties for my ever-so-sweet kids (aged 4 and 2 years old). My little girl (4) loves strawberries and both of them love gummy sweets. They are really good kids, back to school this week, and a treat like this would really make them smile – which I hope, in turn, would make you guys smile! 🙂 If it tips the scales at all, it’s my birthday tomorrow. My little girl says she’d like to be mommy’s age… Little does she know how she’d feel if she actually WAS mommy’s age!! 🙁 lol x

  53. Ian Gurney says:

    When I was little my brother and I used to put these in sandwiches and put them down as “fruit” on our five-a-day list at school. We ate so many that at the end of term we both won a trip to Bristol Zoo and both got our picture in the local paper with a headline that said “Brothers Fruity Fitness Reward”! LOL!!!

  54. K Dunn says:

  62. Irene Brackenridge says:

    Oooooo, I can remember them first time around, when you got more in your trolley for less lolly

  63. Gemma Turner says:

    These bring back so many memories! I remember going to the sweet shop and having my pocket money of 50p for the week.. and bending down to look at the array of penny sweets and always spending at least 20 minutes deciding if I wanted 25 apple jacks, and 25 postman pats? or have 5 big strawberries! I remember my brother told me that if you bit it in half, and sucked it.. you could get strawberry jam. Boy i tried!!! Good memories 🙂

    These strawberries take me back to when I was a kid. I loved biting and then stretching them. They taste like real strawberries. When I’m out and about, I’ll buy the odd one and I’ll bit into it when I’m in the car. They are my guilt pleasure!!

    My daughters are addicted to them too and they love the fact that they were out when I was a child.

    I love any sweets that are sour – bought some once and they made the inside of your mouth wrinkle up – lovely! hubby begged for one even though I told him he wouldn’t like them but he didn’t listen and no sooner had it gone in his mouth than it came out again – luckily we were at the seaside so it went in the water
    So as a treat I’d like to win these for him as a peace offering as I’m sure he’d love these and I might even be able to sneak one or two as well

    My son holds them in his mouth by the green stalk and waggles the strawberry up and down like a giant tongue to make me laugh. He’s only 29!!! They are still his favourite 🙂

  124. Sarah Hodge says:

    We always have a stock in our house. My son is an athlete and has them rather than chocolate to give him a sugar boost.

  129. john radburn says:

    Well I’m deprived I’ve NEVER had them!So that’s why I’ve always had a strawberry on my shoulder instead of a chip?

  130. Janine Atkin says:

    omg i wouldnt tell anybody if i win so i dont have to share. the only trouble is id have to wait till they were all in bed to eat them …..unless i hide them in my wardrobe and sneak one when no ones looking…… but then i wouldnt be able to just have one and they’d wonder where i was creeping off to all the time…….unless i put them in my bag and eat them whilst walking the dog….. but then the dog would want one… be continued ….

  142. Maria Messruther says:

    Would love to win these. My hubby bought me a large box from Costco but I think I had about 5 the rest disappeared. Questioning the 3yr old what happened to my sweets got the lovely answer “daddy shared them” questioned the hubby/sneak thief and I got a very sheepish look and a grin saying the 3yr old told him to eat them, hmmm definitely need to hide anything I want. I need to win to replace the stolen ones and give me chance to hide them and they wont even know I have them muhahaha no sharing

  143. Samantha R says:

    I used to work in a hotel and they often got these when they went to the wholesalers for the staff to eat, havnt had them in years YUMMY

  144. Katherine L says:

    These lovely giant strawberries remind me of the summer and gosh knows, we all need a bit of a reminder right now! Imagine strawberries and cream at a picnic in the park in the summer … but in the winter, one of these giant strawberries with a hot drink by the fire. Yes! Light at the end of a dark dreary winter tunnel 🙂

  145. Dee says:

    These are my favourites because when I get a sugar craving – which I frequently do – I cram as many of these into my mouth as I can, and revel in the sweet satisfaction of chewing away, nom nom nom. x

    I love these because of the weird way I eat them- I suck them in my mouth, take them out and then scrape the jelly off with my teeth (very strange :P)
    I think they just taste delicious!

  148. Rachael Donovan says:

  155. Sylvia Robbins says:

    Twenty Years ago I signed up for a season of strawberry picking. I was invited back for the next year because the Farmer said I was a good worker and didn’t scoff all the strawbs. Little did he know that I was mega allergic to them and even had to wear gloves to pick.
    I’d love to win some of these tasty looking sweets and they’re veggie too!

  166. George Williamson says:

    When I was younger my dad had a garden full of strawberries & I had my fill but times change but I will have to restrict my 4 grandkids to fewer sweets to protect their teeth & their waistline. I’m sure their parents will be only too glad to share these with them.
