these will cheer me up, as they will remind me that in 5 months time i can enjoy a nice cornish ice cream on holiday on Cornwall.
By eating these it will make me think of summer sat on a beach somewhere hot sunning myself putting the January blues to the back of my mind…
What better way to get rid of the blues than having a bag of sweets I’ve never had before, always brings a smile to your face 🙂
Ashamed to admit, i’ve never tried these, but love white chocolate. so guess i will love them 🙂
Ah, icecream = summer, not cold winter. Just this has cheered me up, but of course i’d like to win the sweets as well!
Oooh these are yummy and their ice cream fashioning may well trick the heart and mind into believing it’s a sunny Summer’s day and you haven’t a care in the world, instead of it being a grotty, cold, wet day and you’re no where near to paying off the Christmas debt 🙂
Wether it’s winter, summer, spring or autumn I love love love these. They are like a white mouse but better!!!!!
Do you know. I’m 53 and have never tried these! Can’t believe there’s a sweet out there I’ve never tasted. And since I live in freezing cold North Wales anything that makes me think of summer sunshine would be most welcome. 🙂
wow my childhood fave , brings back every summer whilst eating
all i can say is get in my belly lol xx
yes serious comfort food for jan very much needed
pink and cream , a summertime dream. these remind me of sun and sand and walking along the seafront with a lovely icecream in my hand 😀
Candy cones, pink and cream sunshine on a cold, freezing, winters day, just what I need to think summer is round the corner.
What better then some yummy ice cream sweeties on a cold wintery day 🙂 Well you cant really be having the real thing now can u? x
Oh wow, these sweets bring back memories! They remind me when i was a little girl and my mum used to buy me 10p mix-ups!
These won’t help our teeth but boy would it cheer me up!
Pink and white to chase away the blues.
one word yummy

They look and I’m sure they taste great, Reminds me of going to the beach as a kid.
Eating these would remind me of ‘real’ summers when I was a kid, when the only thing that mattered was having fun and summer seemed to last forever
January means getting out earlier to run the car and de-ice it – what a pain! I’d love a bag of Candy Cones to cheer me up.
January – 2 cases of head lice, 1 sewer flood in garden, 1 grandparent in hospital, and a tickly cough just for me! would love some sweets to remind me of when I was young and had no cares in the world – ahhh heaven!
Oh yum!!! I love these soooo much, if I won these I would be in heaven!
These would remind me of summer holidays at the beach
I wouldn’t get to eat them. I’d give them to my girlfriend – They will make her smile – and that will make me smile. Double whammy cheefulness.
I am not drinking any booze, eating any sugar, or bread…or anything delicious for the whole of January and cannot think of anything better than stuffing these beauties into my mouth, one after the other, and feeling a whole lot better.
Endless summer of 76 when i didn’t have a care in the world
These will remind of my happy childhood before the stresses of work
gotta say would love to win these as ive never ever heard of them and would be lovely to try them
Ahhh I love those – they remind me of the white mice you used to get. My nan used to buy them for me when I was little! x:)
I’m feeling old and grey, an old fashioned sweet would brighten me up for the rest of the day.
I’ll be honest eating any pack of sweets would put a smile on my face!
MMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmm TASTY would love these 😀 ,
Fingers crossed :p
Candy Cones on the beach
Seems so far out of reach
Dreamy days of Sun Sea and Sand
With Candy Cones goes hand in hand
Images of Great British Holiday Beaches
Knotted Hanky’s and Beauties showing off their Peaches
Stripy Deck chairs and a Donkey Ride
Part of England’s National Pride
Time to leave your gadgets and phones
Go back to the days of Candy Cones
They remind me of the long summer holidays when I was a little girl.
No BS and well written, thanks much for the postfirefall gold
These fab sweets are so cute & tasty, they would really help get me through finishing my dissertation whilst listening to the wind & rain outside in the gloom… PLEASE!!! 🙂
Training for a muddy and challenging 10k run so these would be a fantastic energy boost to take on the route with me – and think how many friends I could make and help too!
I’m just going into my 9th week of No Smoking and its been a tough Journey but Im getting there and feeling good,these sweets would be a real treat for myself for kicking the habit 🙂
i have just spent loads on my car this month 🙁 so sweets would cheer me up righht now
mmmmmm, my daughter would love these….. shall i share if i win?????
Any sweet is sweet enough for me, fed up of my diet anyway !!
They’d cheer me up during the cold weather,they make me think of the beach,they would make me smile,for a long while,and make my cheeks rosy peach
Why didn’t the lawmakers put in a caveat, that the big banks benefittin-g from bail outs would be in contempt if they even tried to lobby Washington D.C? I suppose that would have been way too ethical for them, too honorable for them. Especially since it didn’t bother the lawmakers when the big bonuses were doled out. Why then do the GOP think that OWS is happening? We are fed up with the manipulati-ons and the lies from the Big Banks, Wall Street and the GOP. The writing on the wall is clear the top tier has had the system rigged in their favor for too long, it is our turn to have a return to the freedom of opportunit-y that has been lost to the middle class.buy gw2 gold
they look great its the seaside they remind me off as l used to live at the seaside when l was a kid great fun
These will buy me at least an hour of peace and quiet when I use them to bribe the kids….I’ll keep a few for myself of course. Sweets like this remind me of my youth, when I was the one making all the noise!
These would cheer up my daughter as she’s just had a mouthful of braces fitted with a jaw retainer – poor kid, BUT she could suck these quite happily!!! :o)
these remind me of my childhood and they taste fantastic too
omg, i remember these not seen erm in years!
love these sweets
When I was little my mum told me these were beetles to stop me scoffing them. Rather than using eyes+brain to realise they weren’t infact beetles, I carried on scoffing them – with my eyes shut!!
Love these sweets! Eating these tucked up in bed watching a movie will definitely cheer me up on these cold winter nights. I haven’t had them for ages but I sure still remember the taste!
Ice-cream on a winters day
too cold I hear you say
But chocolate coloured pink and white
is my chocoholic dream delight
These will cheer me up as I have been ill with a nasty virus since before xmas and it has finally gone away, so I definitely need some of these to build my energy levels back up!
Mmmmm they certainly make you think of summer look and sound delicious
I would love to win so I too can remember the iconic white chocolatey taste of these sweets. 😀
There are no blues in Chewbz, only nice cheerful coloured sweets
This will cheer me up no end because I’ve decided to sod the diet and just move to the moon instead! I won’t weigh a things up there!! (NASA still haven’t returned my calls…)
THEY REMIND ME OF WARM SUNNY DAYS AND MY LOVELY CHILHOOD OUT PLAYING AND ENJOYING FREEDOM TO BE ABLE TO PLAY,EATING SWEETIES WERE A BIG PART OF THIS TOO AND THOSE ARE SCRUMMY
these will cheer me up because i came out of hospital today agter having an operation
they look very yummy!
Yum- ice cream cones in January to go with the balmy weather we’ve been having!
the sun wont melt these as fast as ice cream , but they will melt my heart like a chocolate lovers dream
These, and all your other yummy retro sweets, never fail to bring a smile to my face Each one triggers another childhood recollection that I had long since forgotten. Thanks so much for the memories Chewbz 🙂
These will cheer me u as they will make me remember the sweet shop when I was little, so much choice but these are always my favourite!
Delicious! Reminds me of my childhood, going to the local sweet shop & getting a quarter (4oz) of sweets measured out from a jar off the shelf!
They make me smile as they remind me of being a kid and going to the beach. Simpler times when sweets were sweets and not sugary lip gloss rubbish that costs two quid :O
Well if I win them I can say I will start my diet next Monday…. again, would put a smile on my kids faces if I won these 🙂
The first time I met my husband to be I was 14 and he bought me a bag of these for us to eat in the cinema. The taste reminds me of the excitement of my first ever ‘date’ and the sweetness of my first ever kiss goodnight.
What cheers me up is knowing i could win thease sweets lol 😀 just kidding what really make me happy in january is knowing that i have great friends and family and everytime i think of tht i smile 🙂
Ooh, I do love these 😀
Fantastic remind me of summer hols @ da beach
well my diet lasted all of 5 days and looking at those sweeties didnt help! So you have to give them to me now!
They’d cheer me up as I have a ‘claw’ at the moment as I had a suspected blood clot in my finger & it hurts to use it!
One of my fave sweeties of all time!!!! Would love to win these!!!!!!
mmmm these will really get rid of the january blues. thanks for a great prize
OOhhhh, can’t get enough of ‘retro’ sweets, but to me they are not retro as I grew up with them!! Lushalicious 😉
As our poor cat has been run over so we need cheering up as a family (sad face) so we need sweeeets
How best to beat my January Blues?
Win a car, a boat or a pair of shoes.
All of those I wouldn’t care to lose,
If I won a pack of sweets from Chewbz!
Just looking at them brings back happy memories of childhood!
They’d cheer me up because quite frankly sweets are always guaranteed to cheer me up! I’m easy to please…
Having supported Doncaster Rovers for half a century a bag of sweets would be a major difference from a bag of what I’ve been served up for most of those 50 those years!
These white chocolatey cones have such a good taste,
I am sure they will go straight to my waist.
Winter days seem far away
As I am carried back to my childhood
and summer seems not to far away
I have S.A.D (seasonal affective disorder) I’m pretty sure these would help cure me! x
I would love to lie on the beach eating these.
My dander is down
And I’m wearing a frown
Has gone very slow.
Christmas was fab
but I’ve put on some flab
And now Jan is just grim
specially now I’m not slim.
Yes, I’m starting a diet!
So please keep it quiet
That I’m having a try
To win sweets on the sly.
It reminds me of Summer back at home, and being from home for the first time and living at University this will remind to keep strong, keep going because at the end of the University year i’ll have a big long summer holiday to spend with my family!
After Christmas its all about loosing weight .. well thats boring.. January needs to be made more fun.. hand out the sweets.. let January be Sweetie month.. 🙂
Although I live near the sea it is so cold & windy these sweets would cheer me up!
OOooo these will banish the blues…. My favourite brain food <3
id love these ,id happily ruin my newyear diet to munch on a bag of these yuuuummmmyyyyy just what you need to put you in the mood for spring/summer candy cones, a holiday brochure and a hugggeee lottery win (we can dream cant we) 🙂
ooh remember these, making my mouth water x
kids holidays sunshine
These remind me of sticky hands after taking as many as I could hold and then them all melting in my hands lol 🙁
I’ve now got two children of my own with hands ready to get sticky 😉
I love to have a secret treat…. I would make a bag last all month….. a little nibble each day!
I want to win these for my friend, she just found out she is pregnant and is craving sweets!!!
My daughter Leah, who is nearly 10 will be going into a leg frame next month which she will be in for the next 8 months. she has never been able to wear normal shoes due to a disability so this frame means she’ll finally be able to wear the pretty girly shoes she’s never been able to before! she’s so exited but terrified at the same time … i think these sweets will cheer her up a bit, and she can save them for when she goes in for surgery 🙂
my little girls got chicken pox and even though her appetites gone at the moment im sure she’d eat some sweeties and you’d certainly turn her fronwy face into a smily one xx
These look scrummy 🙂
These would help me forget the dreary wintry weather and remind me of the summer to come.
because sweets give me the sweetest smile!!!!
they taste as good as they look! and anything that reminds you of being young has gotta be good!!!
Remind me of my childhood…these and white mice…
Yummm, not only will they cheer me up but also my mum! will take her back to her childhood, we can enjoy these while will take about old times, plus this are so yummy!
SANDless to say I’d be over the DUNE as they’d go down a TREAT1
These will cheer me up as I’ve just had a baby and I’ve got a touch of the baby blues.
These would cheer me up because were saving for our first mortgage and have had to give up doing/buying anything fun in order to save.
Every happy minute has Sweets like yours in it!
They’re SWEETS ahead of the rest!!!!
when it comes to confection,
they are p-e-r-f-e-c-t-i-o-n!
Taste buds agree,
These are the only sweets for me!
Mum, Dad, Teenager, Tot,
Sweets like yours please the lot!
We’ve tried the rest,
But YOURS are best!
These sweets will cheer me up because they remind me of being on the beach, and who doesn’t love the beach! 🙂 Plus they look super yum!
i have been dieting hard & would love a sweet treat please
These will cheer me up as I have had to give up smoking and drinking, SWEETS will NOT be given up !
These will cheer me up as they’ll remind me of being a careless child in the sunshine, on the beach on the good ol’ English coast! 😀
they taste of summer days at the beach
After having spent a whole week in with 3 boys (one 6 and 4 year old twins) with a sick and flu type bug and then getting it myself i think i need some cheering up. 🙂
These would cheer me up and say goodbye to the January blues cause they are delicious, remind me of my forthcoming holiday in April and even though I’m on a diet, if you gave me a bag of them, I’d probably eat them anyway lol
Because I am on a diet but if i win chocolate then it doesn’t count – can eat them!!! Love these too
