The Gobstopper Sweets

I have to admit when I got the opportunity to review for The Gobstopper I was a bit pleased with myself. My children have all had plenty of sweets recently, it's definitely my turn...

The Gobstopper is your traditional sweet shop - only it's online. Because they're online they can stock a truly massive range of sweets. They have everything from Retro Sweets and Chocolate to Christmas Hampers and Party Bags. They even have a Chocolate Elk!

I was sent a Small Jar from the Click 'N' Mix, with my choice of 3 different sweets. The Gobstopper has a list of all of their vegetarian sweets, so they were easy to find. Although they stock tons of veggie sweets, I did think the Pick 'N' Mix was quite tricky because I had to keep referring back - a 'V' would have made it a lot quicker.

One of the nicest things about The Gobstopper sweets is the presentation. I'm a big fan of Kilner jars and it shows off the sweets really well, plus somehow makes them very 'grown up'. 

I chose White Mice, Orange & Lemon Fizzballs and Rhubarb & Custard and they're great, just as I remember. The sweets are lovely and the smell when you open the jar takes you right back to being a child. I don't think I've had a Fizzball for about 30 years!

Of course sweets aren't only for grown ups...one small boy who fell over on the way home from nursery....

One small boy who is happy again.....

I think this makes a really excellent gift, especially for a teenager or adult. The nostalgia is a lovely thing and perfect for Christmas. The indulgence is perfect for Christmas. Because they come in a genuine Kilner jar they're really excellent value for money and make a gorgeous gift.

Click 'N' Mix is available in 3 different sizes. My Small Jar would have cost me £9.99 and delivery is free on all orders over £25.
