Retro sweet of the week…

This week, our retro offering is sure to take you back to the days of best friends birthday parties… and the best part of musical chairs and pin the tail on the donkey? Well, the party bags of course!

It was almost guaranteed that all good party bags had a few of these classic treats thrown in, along with all our other tuck shop faves.

These mini rolls of fizzy, pinkness are often considered the sweeter sibling to the Parma Violet.

Fizzers

Yep, you guessed it… Fizzers!

How many of you love these just as much now as you did way back when?
Did you prefer these to Parma Violets, or were the floral rolls more to your fancy?!

If you’d like to win a haul of Fizzers, simply leave a comment on this post and declare your love for this fizzy favourite!

The winner will be the comment that makes us smile the most, and will be chosen by us here at Chewbz HQ.

Competition closes at 9am next Monday 14th May, so get typing :).

    I’ve got to admit, I preferred Parma Violets. In fact I loved them so much that I can remember a time that I sent my boyfriend out to get me some late on a Sunday night and told him not to come back until he had some for me. Needless to say we’re not together any more. Though if I could have that time again I would still choose Parma Violets over him. Fizzers would be my second choice too 😉

    WOW I remember these! my brother never liked them so i would always get his in the ready picked “pick n mix” bags on a friday after school 😛

    Fizzers take you back to ‘the good old days’ faster than any therapy or surgery could ever do!!

  6. Jean Bolsover says:

    I love either of these. A few years back my aunt told me that Parma Violets were good at clearing up mouth ulcers! I dunno about that!!

    Always loved Fizzers and had hundreds of them on the tables at my wedding for the guests to enjoy – as well as loads of other sweets from Chewbz!!

  9. Darla Parsons says:

    Fizzers make me fizz!! They remind me of Sunday afternoons when I was a child, we were always treated to sweets after Sunday dinner. Fizzers would always be a first choice. The good old days ….. Leaves me with a fizzy feeling! x

    I love fizzers so so much. I will take a pocket full to football and people may look and say why is a grown man eating fizzers. But when you offer them one they always take them and say “havent had these since I was a kid” more converts for the fizzers club.

    I love the floral fizzers and we have sweet Friday at work where we by the bumper pack of sweets and there is always a fight for the parma violets by my team. This would put an end to all our fights for the fizzers each week.
    They bring back great childhood memories too.

  15. Louise MacGregor says:

    I would fight through hordes of Parma Violets fans for one teeny tablet from one of these packets.

  16. olivia kirby says:

  22. Vicky Louise Brett Robinson says:

    I absolutely adore Fizzers (& Parma Violets) I ate loads of these as a child & still love them. My kids all take after me too & can’t get enough of them either! I do try to hide my stash but somehow they always find them!

  23. Clare Webb says:

    I love Fizzers and unlike someone above will not send in sob stories pretending to be bullied when it is in fact the other way around!

    Good luck to all the genuine entrants!

    Oh yeah, and I won’t sell them on ebay if I win 😉

  24. Gemma cook says:

    I loveeeeeeee fizzers! When I was pregnant with my daughter I craved them and found myself eating packets and packets. No wonder I ended up having to have two fillings after she was born lol. They are now her favourite, she has them as a treat every Friday after school, fizzer Friday :). She’s a bit mean though as she never shares lol!

  25. Rachel Sollis says:

    I love these,but then again i love EVERY sweet as i’ve a very sweet tooth! I think these are the kind you never grow out of! Best way to eat them is from a bowl,lots of packets all opened up in a bowl *drools* Yummmm!!!fizz is the Biz 😉

  26. Sarah Burke says:

    I haven’t tried these fizzy sweets since I was a child! I would absolutely love to try them again now, especially since I’m on a diet 🙁
