Fear not - we have you covered for all your gluten-free pick and mix needs! Most classic retro sweets are fabulously free in the gluten department so you can enjoy a sugar boost too!
 
We love gluten-free pick and mix, we have a huge selection at AQuarterOf.co.uk. We love them so much that we've listed our top ten gluten-free pick and mix sweets:
 
BLACKBERRY AND RASPBERRY DOMES 
The perfect combination of Blackberry and Raspberry - it tastes like an English summer afternoon! These delicious small jelly chews are bursting with fruity flavours. And if that wasn't enough, they're covered in tiny red and black sugar-coated balls for extra texture! Incredibly moreish and completely gluten-free, a pick and mix favourite!
 
COLA CUBES 
You'd be a fool to not try our 'best you've ever tasted' Cola Cubes! Rich in flavour, a super chewy centre, and no artificial flavourings - what's not to like? Better yet, they completely gluten-free so make sure you add them to your gluten-free pick and mix.
 
DOLLY MIXTURES 
First introduced in the 1920s, Dolly Mixtures are a pick and mix staple. Who remembers the little assortment of coloured fondant blocks and sugar-coated jellies? Take a trip down memory lane and treat yourself to some now! Not only are they gluten-free, but they're also free from artificial colours and flavourings.
 
coconut mushroomsCOCONUT MUSHROOMS 
Taveners Coconut Mushrooms - what a blast from the past! Unique gluten-free chewy fondant sweets in the shape of little toadstools, coated in desiccated coconut. They're probably one of the best moreish sweets to fill your gluten-free pick and mix bag with, for a proper nostalgia trip! 
 
HARIBO GIANT SOUR STRAWBERRIES
Not to be confused with the classic Giant Strawbs (as they're sadly not gluten-free) but these are suitable for those looking for a pick and mix treat without gluten. These are just like the classic Haribo Giant Strawb except coated in sugar for an extra juicy kick! Perfect for sharing as each Strawberry measures around 2 inches in height - that's a lot of sour berry-flavoured goodness to give a fruity flavour boost to your gluten-free pick and mix.

Originally available in tubes, we now have whole bags available of the gluten-free jelly fruity chew. Not only can you purchase in 250g bags, but you can also treat yourself to big 3kg bags for the bulk pick and mix experience! Fruit pastilles typically come in 5 flavours: lime, lemon, orange, blackcurrant, and strawberry. Which is your favourite? Mine is blackcurrant! 
 
flying saucersFLYING SAUCERS 
Our best-selling Flying Saucers are vegan, gluten-free and free from artificial colours and flavours - what's not to like? Originally invented in Belgium, Flying Saucers have been adopted by the English pick and mix for decades and are still going strong nowadays! Relive your childhood and order some for your gluten-free pick and mix today!
 
FIZZY PEACHES 
A great addition to a picnic or a cinema trip, our Fizzy Peaches are a must-try if you haven't already! Orange and yellow round fizzy gummies - they're mouth-wateringly good! As they are free from gluten, those with dietary requirements can join in on the delicious peach flavoured fun too! 
 
FIZZY COLA BOTTLES

Our Fizzy Cola Bottles are free from artificial colouring, flavours and gluten-free so anybody can enjoy!
 
PINK SHRIMP 
Travel back in the time with these raspberry-flavoured foam shrimps. Don't worry, there is no fishy taste about them!

70s / 80s Music Icons

I'm nervous... I came up with an idea last week and I'm not sure whether it will go down a storm... or die a horrible death through lack of interest. So I'm using the response to this email as a barometer as to whether to press on with the idea or not... so if you like this sort of thing please take part and leave a comment below. I know...

Strange 80s Radio

  Back in the day... I think it must have been the 80s... there was possibly one of the strangest things to be broadcast on the radio... and it used to happen every Sunday.  Anyone tuning in mid-stream must have been proper confused. It was on a London independent radio station... LBC.  They had a programme devoted to home comp...

The Beautiful Game

  Hello I went to Wembley last Saturday to watch the League 1 playoff final (football!) where my beloved Wycombe Wanderers were playing Sunderland.   We lost 2-0 sadly... on the day it was a fair result... but that's part and parcel of supporting Wycombe...   and the defeats make the victories all the sweeter. S...

Mr Benn

Hello David McKee sadly died about a month ago.  He was 87, which is a good innings in anybody's book. You're probably thinking... who? To tell the truth, I'd have been doing the same. If you'd mentioned the name "Michael Bond" to me I'd automatically have a mental picture of... "Paddington Bear". Oliver Postgate (good name!)......

1970s Horrors

Almost 50 years later this still sends shivers down my spine... and not in a good way. It's in the same category as scraping fingers down the blackboard for many people (which strangely I don't mind that at all, do you?)... Honestly... I feel unforfortable writing this and bringing back the memories... The incredible power of triggers......

Chockle - Our Best April Fools Joke!

As you can probably guess, it's not a bad job to be the person behind the virtual counter in an online sweetshop. Aside from being surrounded by sweets (ahhhh the smell!) and taste-testing a gazillion new ones to see which will make it onto AQuarterOf.co.uk, we also get to embark on the occasional fun project. And that's what we did a smidg...

Charley Says...

As Vic Reeves would have said... "You wouldn't let it lie...". Brace yourself for a nostalgic rant... Don't you find it depressing how many reboots there are... They take something that worked in the past... And "bring it up to date". Uggghhh. It could be a film e.g. Mary Poppins... It could be a television programme e.g. Haw...

Plimsolls

I took William, our 13 year old, shopping the other day to buy a new pair of trainers.   The old ones had lasted about 3 months until he grew out of them...  Pesky meddling adolescence! It was an experience... There is a brand... which I refuse to name but I bet you can probably guess which one it is... which makes very...

Sketch-a-graph

As I look out of the window here the sky is grey and it's raining. Back in the day, before there was 24 hour a day entertainment for children (on-demand television so you can watch whatever you like whenever you like, tablets etc etc), it was the sort of day that we'd mope around, bored. At the time being bored seemed to be the worst thing ...

The Great Egg Race

Back at the end of the 70s a new, how did they come up with that idea, programme appeared on BBC2.  I can remember if it was on Sunday afternoon or, and I think I'd probably plump for this if I had to, at about 6.30 on a Wednesday or Thursday evening. It was called "The Great Egg Race". Ring any bells? The premise was simple... T...

Westerns

As I'm doing mundane stuff around the house and in the garden I spend a whole load of my time trying to think of obscure nuggets of things that I remember from when I was little.  Not the most obvious stuff... that just doesn't have it (whatever "it" is).  But the leftfield stuff which we've probably all almost forgotten about... Th...

How many of these childhood Christmas memories can you remember?

The Gift That Keeps On Disappointing!

The devil is in the detail they say... and that was certainly true when it came to tokens at Christmas. One, in particular, made my heart sink when I was 9...

Whatever Happened To...?

It was one of the staple puddings of school dinners at our junior school. In the queue I would repeat to myself internally... "Please don't let it be... please don't let it be..."... willing it with all my might.  What was it?

Horror Snacks!

I say that these are the most nostalgic snacks ever. Or am I wrong?  You decide...

My Saviour: A Bic Pen

They wrote well.  They leaked horribly.  But what else were they really good for?  

CDs: You Could Eat Your Breakfast Off Them... Apparently!

They were unscratchable... and you could smear them with butter and jam, pour coffee over them... wipe'em down and then pay them. Because Tomorrow's World said so!

The Legend Called William Shatner

Do you remember tribbles?  Or this song from 1987 that was number 1 for two weeks?

The World's Worst Toilet Paper

There's one item from my childhood that stands head and shoulders above all others as being completely and horribly unfit for purpose.

It Never Stopped!

Bird goes up, bird goes down, bird goes up, bird goes down...

What's In Your Pocket?

Back in the 70’s there was a British toy company called Palitoy. Ring any bells? They made my sister’s favourite doll at the time Penny Puppywalker But they also made Pocketeers... remember them?

Things that make you go hmmm (or ewww!)

Did you get the 1990’s music reference in the title? See more here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XF2ayWcJfxo When I say hmmm I don’t mean it in a good way… these are things where manufacturers seemed hell-bent on spoiling really good things with rubbish options. For instance… (and I was going to paste a picture here but clearly the manufac...
