I wonder who coined the term pick and mix – or pick n mix as it became known?
Who can forget standing in Woolies (other general purpose stores are available!)… plastic scoop in hand… wondering which of the colourful sweets to add to our paper bag? Or watching in horror as the urchin in front picked his nose and then proceeded to make his selections without the use of the scoop. You’d be amazed at some of the things that I used to see in in the clear perspex tubs (or maybe you wouldn’t!)
Pick and Mix Sweets For The 21st century!
So maybe it’s just as well that this particular institution is pretty well a thing of the past these days… and that it has been replaced by the fab, hygienic pick and mix of our online sweetshop. Either way, we have loads of great pick and mix sweets at A Quarter Of… to take you back in time so you can enjoy your favourites and reminisce at the same time!
Here’s a small selection to whet your appetite… – but our whole online sweetshop is really just one huge pick and mix counter!
