Wedding Sweet Favours

So as some of you may know I got engaged a couple of months back and wedding plans are in full swing. (Wedding isn't until June 2015, but best to start early).

Instead of making favours and putting them at peoples table placements, we thought it would be more fun to have a sweet display where they can help themselves!

Whilst researching this the best deal I found was from

The Retro Sweet Buffet comes complete with 20 different types of Retro sweets all displayed in stylish clear bowls and vases. Guests will have a tempting selection of six jelly sweets to scoop into their bags, alongside wrapped favourites including Sherbet Fountains, Love Hearts, Refreshers, Popping Candy and Drumstick Lollies. 

This includes the following and we get to keep it all afterwards:

- Enough sweets to allow for 150g of sweets per person
- All of the bowls you’ll need to display the sweets
- Silver scoops 
- Enough stripy sweet bags for every guests

Mr Big Tops - My box has arrived!

So a couple of posts ago I told you about the Mr Big Tops and their amazing new 'Sweets by post' service. My box is here and I've never been so excited! I hope to do a video review on these, but for now here is a picture review.

Graphics on the inside of the tabs.

The sweets I got consisted of:
Double Lollies Squashies, Schrimps, Fizzy Cherries, Fizzy Pencil Pieces, Black Jacks and Cone Jazzies. 

The inside of the box itself is where there are lots of hidden graphics. The design work on the packaging is brilliant, everywhere you look there is something else to make you smile.

And finally the fun competition part. Once you've worked your way through all of the sweets, don't forget to cut out the red moustache  take a picture and upload to their Facebook Page or Twitter to be in with a chance of winning a years worth of FREE sweets - Wish me luck ;)

Ta-da!! Now get ordering at!

The Super Loot Candy Box

For £19.99 a month (including postage), you can get a box full of international candy sent straight to your door. Super Loot ship a box on the 1st of every month, if you wish to try one box then you can with their 1, 3 or 6 month payment options.  

Here is the first ever Super Loot Candy box :) 
(Note: Mine had only one Laffy Taffy in, because of reasons. But it's good because that stuff tastes like soap in my opinion)

Not started the Fluff yet but have had the strawberry flavoured one before. 
The Pac-Man energy I'm savouring for an emergency. 

Cookie Dough Bites are those types of things that don't taste amazing but are very addictive!
Nerds didn't last long, haven't had those for years, brought back memories :)

The Mario coins are cute, and the zelda one is full of mints (yet to be opened).

The Atari controller has gum inside, still yet to be opened.
I've never had Kool-Aid before, tempted to get some other flavours and do a full on taste test.

Personally the taste of this one was just wrong, soap is what came to mind.
