A colourful, witty and irreverent encyclopedia of all the sweets and crisps of your youth. From Mojos to Rainbow Drops, Space Raiders to Trios, Corona to Kia Ora and everything in between.

Fully illustrated with hundreds of wrappers, ads and specially recreated packshots this book will lead you down memory lane until you reach the corner shop, load up a 10p mix up bag and rot your teeth on the contents.

The authors have been given access to the archives, factories and warehouses of some of the leading sweet and snack manufacturers in the country and have delivered a book that is packed full of fascinating historical research…

… and lots and lots of sweets.


Reader review from

"I read this book within a day, a true page turner.

Being a child of the 70's/80's most of the sweets, crisps, snacks, drinks and ice creams are very familiar to me. Each wrapper and packet brought back memories and stories from days gone by.

The phraseology and wording of this book had me laughing out loud many a time. And Nodding sagely at things I thought I'd imagined (I knew Double Deckers used to contain raisins!)

So get on your best ra-ra skirt and leg warmers, make sure your space hopper is fully inflated and lose yourself in this amazing and very informative literary jewel. (Grifter optional) :)"
