Recognise any of the names above?!
You may be screaming - "I recognise that!!, I recall that, I used to love that, or I didn't know that wasn't being sold anymore", and so on, just like I did when I first had a look at an old Youtube video talking about sweets that are no longer being sold (at least in the U.K., anyway). There are so oooh many and each one is dearly missed by someone.
I recall being completely obsessed with Cadbury's Secret chocolate. Have a little look at this 90's advert and see if you can recall any it (it was filmed around the 90's and the quality isn't great but you can make out what's happening anyway):
My name is Lizzy and I created this site to keep up with sweets that are coming and going on our supermarket shelves. I think it would be nice to have one huge website where a lot of these items are catalogued or at least listed and / or chatted about. To offer a little background about myself, as I said before, my name is Lizzy, I am 23 years old (24 years old come this November!) and I currently work part time in an office here in London, UK.
I am currently studying commercial law at uni and hopefully, I'll be a lawyer in a couple of years or so and I'll be working in my Dad's office in central London, which I'm really, really, really looking forward to and hopefully I'll be able to relax a bit more as I'm currently getting up at 5.30am each morning to arrive at work on time for 3 days each week. I love keeping busy with lots of various activities such as making small, basic websites for friends and family, volunteering at veterinary surgeries (I love animals and have been a proud and loud Vegan since Jan 2011) and nurseries (not for looking after plants, but looking after kids), and I also really enjoy tennis on the weekends. I have two dogs, a cat, and a very loyal and obedient boyfriend :)
So what's the story for this website?
I plan on really kitting this site out with lots more Youtube videos on vintage sweets and chocs and will also plaster up plenty of pics of them too. As time goes by, more and more chocolates and sweets are coming and going from our shop shelves and keeping track of them all in one place is a fab idea I think!
Please feel free to comment on this page and share this website wherever you like! Thank you!! Say whatever you feel.
Do you want to contact me? Do it! I'd really love to talk with you. If you have any sweets or choccies that I've missed here and I'm sure there are plenty, do let me know by popping me a quick email. I'm really trying to build this site out at the moment, so any help would be really appreciated! I'm also going to be adding more pages and pics so please let me know if you have any pics that I might be able to steal for this website!
