I had to drive to Edinburgh from Fife to pick up my order as Parcelforce drove past my house twice, never left a card then emailed me to say sorry we missed you! I was mad! I could have re arranged delivery but I needed it that day for my friends birthday. When I picked it up though it was more than what I expected, I got a make it yourself hamper and £30 worth of sweets inside. My friend really loved it though so I’ll definitely order again. I’ll just make sure I sit at my window all day waiting on Parcelforce then run outside like a crazy sweetie lady when I see the van haha.

I used this company because it had great reviews on trustpilot. I was a little disappointed with the dated website where I messed up my order by not selecting separate bags for my pick and mix, therefore did not receive it (I wasn't charged for it either). Packaging and delivery was fine as were the strawberry laces and hard sweets but there was no money off coupon or any attempt to promote a repeat order. I think they need to try a little harder with the customer to secure repeat purchase. I'll most probably try another company next time because I feel I can without being disloyal.

The range of products is great. The sweets arrived in good time, well packaged and are delicious. If I was to offer an idea about doing anything better it might be to pick a sweet of the week or month and offer 30, 40 or 50% off (with terms so people don't bulk buy) to encourage trial of sweets you might not know about or have not tried before.

Really easy to order, quick delivery and great sweets. Even harder to find ones like Pint pots and retro 80's/90's sweets. The only slight downer is that a lot of the measured out sweets come in plastic bags. It'd be great if they could be in paper bags instead so that they could be recycled more easily.

I love the choices you offer and that the packaging can be recycled. I have ordered packs as treats for family members as well as ourselves and they have been received with enthusiasm. Well done! Your products have brought some joy amidst these troubled times!

Having forgotten an item after I had paid, I emailed to ask if they could add them to my order and they did this no problem and refunded me the extra delivery cost so I just paid the once. Great fast customer service. Great products. Thanks 😊

The only time there was a hiccup due to their suppliers found they were very respectful and courteous and easy to get in touch with these things today are rare and good to find.

Simple ordering and prompt delivery. All the sweets are as I remember them except the Foam Bananas. I think my taste has changed since I was a kid. I did not enjoy them at all.

I ordered a few of the sugar free bags of sweets. The delivery was very quick & the sweets are lovely. Only thing i would have liked was to know the calorie content.

Great sweets and service and a nice choice of vegetarian sweets although not in its own section so have to go through all ingredients on each sweet.
