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 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.
