Favourite Retro Sweet Treats
We all remember some of our childhood’s most popular sweets and desserts. Whether you got them at the corner store, on a special outing with your friends and family, or from grandma’s secret cupboard, sweets take us back to a time when we were young and simple pleasures brought us great joy.
- Jelly beans are at the top of this list and date back to the early 1900s — these sweet treats were a favourite of President Ronald Regan. Jelly Beans come in so many colours and flavours these days and are a favourite even today of well-known people such as Stephen Colbert, Justine Beiber, Zac Efron, David Hasselhoff, Michael Urie, Kayne West and Lil Wayne.
National Jelly Bean Day is April 22 in honour of this long-running favourite sweet and colourful treat that even travelled on the Space Shuttle Challenger in 1983. Jelly beans and their yummy, chewy texture will most likely remain on the favourites list for a long time.
- Gummy treats are so popular that they even use them to make supplements for kids and adults. Who knew that one-day vitamins could taste so good and be so fun!
Gummy bears first showed up on the sweet scene back in the 1920s, and today there is even an entertaining song called Gummy Bear (yes, really), but be warned that it will get stuck (pun intended lol) in your head.
Gummy treats are loved by many, including Lady Gaga. A spin-off from the traditional gummy treats is the sour patch kids, they are a favourite of Pink and Tim McGraw, while Madonna loves the classic Hot Tamales.
These delicious chewy Gummy treats are good alone, with ice cream, or even as a cake topper and come in all shapes, sizes, colours and flavours.
- Milk Chocolate beans are another all-time favourite, and this sugar-coated chocolate treat comes in plain or peanut and an assortment of colours.
In the 1940s, chocolate beans became a worldwide treat loved by many, and have made quite an impression on stars including Eminem, Brittany Spears, Jessica Simpson, and Usher.
Chocolate Is Queen
You got it! Queen Elizabeth loves chocolate and sweet treats, and her favourite chocolates are said to have a “floral” taste. Better yet, she gets these special chocolate treats delivered to her door at Buckingham Palace. Do you want the royal treatment just like the Queen? Sweet Factory has a great selection where you can pick and mix high-quality sweet treats and have your order delivered directly to your door.
We have so many choices for delicious chocolate treats these days. The assortment of chocolates comes in dark, milk, or white chocolate, flavoured, gourmet truffles, chocolate-covered almonds, raisins or assorted nuts, fudge and an endless selection of chocolate bars.
Chocolate bars are well-known and loved by singers Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Swift.
Peanut butter and chocolate is another winning combination, and singer, songwriter, actress and record producer Beyonce has this one on her favourites list.
Studies have shown that consuming chocolate in moderation can improve your health due to a powerful antioxidant called phenol found in cacao, from where chocolate is derived, so dive in and enjoy yourself like your favourite celeb!
