Retro sweet of the week… as chosen by you!

Happy Monday Chewbz fans, hope you’ve all had a great start to the week… and that we can help make it even sweeter for you!

This week we’re offering up a real British classic, as chosen by all you brilliant Chewbz fans :). If you Like our Facebook page, then you’ll already know that we asked Facebook fans to choose their favourite sunshine sweet.

Although Rhubarb & Custard’s came a real close second, it was another  two tone boiled sweet that won your votes!

This week you could win a haul of…

Strawberries-And-Cream-Medium Jar

Strawberries & Cream!

We’re pretty pleased you choose these, as they really are sooo good. Plus, it gives us the excuse to ‘taste test’ a few ;).

If you fancy winning your very own Medium Jar of Strawberries & Cream, all you need to do is tell us how much you love ’em!
Do these bring back an extra sweet memory for you, or do they just remind you of the great British summetime?

Let us know your sweet memories, and our favourite comment will win the jar :).

Just make sure you leave your comment by 9am next Tuesday the 10th April (as we’ll be at home scoffing sweet treats on the Monday, obviously!).

*** WINNERS ***

Thank you to every one of you that took part, we love that our little blog posts bring back so many sweet memories :).

    A Chewbz retro classic, a reminder of my past.
    One things for sure, they’ll be devoured very fast!

  11. Norman Kent says:

    Of course I love the silky cream
    And the strawberry taste’s a dream.
    But also when I close my eyes
    To my delight and great surprise
    Images float around my head
    Of memories I thought were dead.

    Like tennis on our village court
    And playing bowls and other sport,
    Or perhaps lazing in deck chairs
    Or strolling round the summer fairs.

    Oh to suck them every day!
    And for a while—- just dream away.

  12. michaela smith says:

    I remember our teacher handing out strawberry & creams sweets to all of us on the queens silver jubilee.We all dressed up in red,white and blue and made and decorated our own hats to wear.It was a fantastic day and i still look at the photograph we had taken of us on that day fondly.It would be lovely to have some again to share with others on the queens diamond jubilee.

  13. gemma raines says:

  15. Zach Hudson says:

    The Strawberrys and Cream
    Are from a childhood dream
    They tingle my sweet tooth
    And remind me of my youth
    Long live this retro theme

  16. andrea tinkler says:

    As a sickly traveller strawberries and cream are great when im in the car, plane or train> Whenever we travel i have some and i only have to smell them to start reminiscing over past days out. Lovely memories

  17. carol stirmey says:

    I love them as there scrummy,fresh,fine,divine
    But the real reason I love them,is when the prize becomes all mine

  18. sue says:

    It was my Mums favourite, whenever there was a few spare pennies that is was she bought us

  19. Cathie Whitehead says:

    They are our families most favourite two flavours joined together in one sweet. What more can you ask for.

  20. Lailli says:

    I love strawberries and cream! They remind me of when I was a child and my mum would take me to the shop to buy sweets. It was always a hard choice between rhubarb and custard or strawberries and cream – obviously strawberries and cream always came first 😉 If I won these, it would really brighten up a rubbish year so far and take me back to when I was a child and everything was lovely 🙂

  21. Ruth Dunkin says:

    Love these as a kiddie version of traditional Wimbledon! Here comes the sun, dee, dar, dee dar (oh well I can wish!)

  22. miss kymme smith says:

  23. zoe hargreaves says:

  24. Helen Cruse says:

    Nothing like a bit of Strawberry and Cream flavour to make you think of summer, and warm, and tennis, and buttock clenching for wimbledon!!

  25. Teresa Sheldon says:

    I love strawberrys and cream because they go togther like gin and tonic, boiled egg and soldiers, ice cream and cones, holly and ivy, ant and dec, laurel and hardy, cheese and biscuits, roastbeef and yorkshire puds, fish and chips all these things are ok on their own but excellent togther

  26. Amanda Burchell says:

    I just love the taste of strawberry and cream sweets. Lets face it you think strawberries and cream and you think of the tennis! This then reminds you of the impending Summer and the warmer weather, sun, sea & beaches. I think everyone will be looking forward to the summer especially after the Winter we have all had 🙂

  27. kimberley plant says:

    strawberries and cream should be the first food you eat when you come out of the womb 🙂

  28. Ally says:

    The perfect sweet to accompany doing absolutely nothing – best enjoyed on a hot summers day 🙂

    sunny days, childhood, wimbledon, happy memories and anticipation of delights to come !

  33. marie bishop says:

    It has been years since i have had any of these sweets, a real memory evoker of weekend spent with my nan and grandy, while he dug in the garden me and my cousin would sit and eat his boiled sweets… oh to have him back just once more 🙂

  34. David Fenwick says:

    I dont love Strawberries & Cream, I am Strawberries & Cream. I have to consume 95% pure Strawberries & Cream just to make it through a day, the other 5% of my diet consists of BBQ Chicken and water. Occasionally the water is however replaced with cream.

  35. Karen Dixon says:

    they remind me of me gran, she always had them in her pocket, sometimes a little sticky, but yummy all the same, would love to win them for some special memory reminders xx

  36. Jeremy Andrews says:

    Strawberries and cream remind me of English summers. Sweet and Sunny. Perfect – I can’t wait to try them again.

  37. Amanda marman says:

    Strawberries and cream, oh what a dream
    A combination that can not be topped.
    A wonderful memory of those lovely school days
    When the laughter never ever stopped.
