Swizzels Sweet Hamper Review & Giveaway

Swizzels Sweet Hamper Review & Giveaway

One thing that always takes us back to our childhood is sweets.  When I was younger you used to have the penny sweets and go in the shop with your 10p to choose your favourites. Or get a quarter of something (yes I am showing my age).

I was recently contacted by Swizzels to ask if I would like to review their sweet collection.  For a sweetaholic I could not refuse, and I knew I would have willing helpers as well.

Retro Premium Sweet Hamper

I received the Retro Premium Sweet Hamper which is full of all the sweets from childhood, plus a few newer ones that we have grown to love.

What’s inside the box?

rainbow drops

The top layer is one of my favourites Rainbow Drops


The next layer you will find packets of Squashies

double dips

Next you will find Double Dip I used to love these when I was younger as well especially the sherbert


Then you will find a huge selection including

  • drumstick lollies
  • double lollies
  • parma violets
  • love hears
  • fizzers and more

The hamper really is a sweet lovers dream and bursting full of all the above.

My Opinion

One thing I have found over the years when buying sweet selections like this, is the disappointment on receiving them.  Usually what you see in the picture you are buying is not as impressive as what turns up.  The lovely selection you think you are buying is far less.  I have always known Swizzels are a reputable brand, they have sweets from all our childhoods.  On opening the hamper I was very impressed that it was full to the top.  You literally could not have got another sweet in there. I am definitely going to be making my purchases from here from now on.
