English Sweets

    Recommended Posts

    Some of you may have already discovered this small treasure trove in Hallett Cove Foodland:biggrin: They have a whole section of English sweets at very reasonable prices (not like the inflated prices at most of the "English sweet shops").

     

    For example :-

     

    Yorkie $1.19

    Caramac $0.99

    Midget Gems $2.19

     

    They also have Rowntrees Fruit pastilles, Werthers Original, Wine gums, Polos, Blackcurrant liquorish boiled sweets and many more.

     

    Enjoy!

    The Woolworths in Marion have (or did the other day :smile:) Minstrels. I think I paid $4.50 for a medium sized bag?

     

    They had other UK lollies too, including Double Deckers, pastilles, wine gums, Penguin bars...and possibly, just possibly, some kind of green, minty sauce lol!

     

    The prices all seemed pretty much the same as what you would expect to pay for ordinary lollies.

     

    And FWIW, I don't care if the chocolate/lollies etc come from the UK, Australia or Venus; if I like the taste I'll buy them!
