The traditional way to buy sweets from a sweet shop back in the 50s,60s,70s,80s and even 90s was to get ‘a quarter of’, this was 1/4 of a pound in old fashioned weighing methods.
A quarter of a pound or a half pound measure was the most typical requests for any shop keeper and this was the standard method of weighing out your tasty treats. This was the way to do it right up till the late 90s when we all went metric.
Due to the dam EU we all went metic in this meant that you could no longer sell aquarterof sweets anymore and everything went into 100g / 200g weigh outs instead and this killed off a quarter of sweets sadly.
Most of our bags of sweets are in 100g, 150g or 200g bags depending on the brand we sell. We do not hand pack any bags anymore they are all pre packed by the manufacturer so we are at the mercy of what they decide is the right weight for the £1 price point.
A lot of sweets are now 150g for £1 however some of the branded chocolate lines are now as low as 79g for £1 – due to the price of cocoa and sugar going up and up.
Sadly we can not sell aquarterof sweets anymore however we do sell bigger sized bags sweets for £1 so actually we are often better value than if you bought from your local market stall. By buying direct from the maker we are able to get great deals and we can pass these cost savings on to you buy offering sweets such as Haribo at £1 price point all year round!
A quarter of sweets which is 113g in new money was an easy way to weigh out treats on the old fashioned scales as this was the unit of measurements they used. Our director used to run an old fashioned sweet shop in the early 00s and had a classic old fashioned scale in the shop.

So do you sell pick n mix? This is a question we get asked quiet a lot and to be honest we do not sell pick and mix sweets in the traditional large pouches that everyone else on the internet seems to sell – however we so sell hundreds of sweets and our prices work out a lot cheaper!
Pick n Mix sweet shops are basically a rip off – £14-£18 for 1kg of sweets! This is £1.40 – £1.80 per 100g, this is more expensive than most cinemas for sweets, and we all know they are a rip off too.
You can get 14 bags of Haribo each weighing 140g for £14 which means you get almost 1kg more for the same price! So please stop buying sweets from pick n mix sweet shops online as they are so expensive.
We have hundreds of treats to buy all wrapped in their own bags and sealed by the manufactures, so you know they are going to be super fresh and also free from any allergens which are not listed on the packet and also you will get the quantity you wanted.
Our tasty treats are from the biggest names in the business – Haribo, Barratts, Swizzels, Cadbury, Galaxy and many many more!
So at the moment we do not sell pick n mix sweets in the traditional form (big pouch) but you can simply make your own bag buy buying loads of different sweets from us and then tipping them in a big bowl – and you will need a big bowl as you will get twice as much!
