From Kingsway Strawberry Twist Kisses to Rosey Apples and so many more, we have the best selection of retro boiled sweets that anyone would be excited to see on the pick n mix stand. Our range of boiled sweets offers a wide range of nostalgic sweets that are ideal for any store.   

          Gummy Sweets

          Many of the most popular retro sweets around are gummy sweets, and it has been that way for some time! Brands like Haribo, Kingsway and Barratt have long been making delicious treats that everyone loves sinking their teeth into! Some might prefer Haribo Heart Throbs, others Barratt Jelly Babies, or any of the many other fantastic chewy retro sweets, but you can guarantee that there will be a few in every pick n mix bag! No matter which you choose to stock, these traditional sweets are a must-have for any pick n mix selection. Our full range of jelly sweets offers a wide selection of delicious old-school sweets as well as the newest gummy sweets on the market.  

          Bon Bons

          With their chewy texture and vibrant flavours, everyone has a favourite bonbon, and they are hugely popular vintage sweets! Here at Hancocks, we stock a wide range of bon bons, so you can cater to everyone’s tastes! With countless fruity versions, as well as the classic toffee, many of our bon bon lines are vegetarian-friendly and come in bulk bags that are perfect for replenishing stock in a busy store. 

          Novelty Sweets

          These retro sweets are a great addition to any sweet shop’s line. Adding that nostalgic feeling, our range of novelty sweets includes lines like long-loved cola bottles, bear-shaped chewy sweets plus many more retro and fun designs. With a variety of shapes and flavours, these lively retro sweets will offer an added element of fun to your range of pick and mix sweets.  

          Old-School Chocolate Pick n Mix

          Great for ALL confectionery collections, pick and mix chocolate is a treat as old as time! Iconic pick n mix like chocolate Jazzies or Snowies, chewing nuts, chocolate balls and so many more chocolatey options. Adding these vintage sweets to your range is the perfect way to pair the world of sweets and chocolate and give shoppers even more choices when they pick a mix. 

          Mints & Medicated

          They may not be to everybody’s taste, but mints and particularly medicated treats are nostalgic retro sweets which still have their place in sweetshops today. Medicated treats in particular, haven’t changed much over the years, but when it is purely about the flavour, adding anything more would dilute the warming pleasure they give! We have traditional sweets including minty options, including the truly iconic Mint Imperials, Taveners Mint Humbugs and so many more. And for those who love a herbal sweet, there’s the Royale Army & Navy and Westheads Cough Candy to name but a few.
