WHICH SWEETS ARE VEGAN?

Feeling like cutting down on the number of animal products you're eating or have special dietary requirements? We've got you and your sweet cravings covered! Here is a list (in no particular order) of our top ten Vegan sweets that we have to offer! 

vegan fizzersWe also display the complete ingredients for every sweet on each page so that you can be sure you know the exact ingredients every retro sweet contains.
 
FIZZERS - Vegan and Gluten-Free
A firm favourite from everyone's childhood! Fizzers, produced by Swizzels are not only vegan but also gluten-free - that means more people can enjoy these tiny, tasty treats! These pastel coloured fizzy disks will take you back to your favourite childhood sweetshop and memories of spending your pocket money on these small tubes of fun!

PARMA VIOLETS  - Vegan and Gluten-Free
Probably one of the most controversial sweets of all time, Parma Violets are small hard disc-shaped sweets created by Swizzels Matlow in 1946. Their sweet flavour of lavender and violet flowers has been a topic of debate for decades! They may divide the nation, but they will forever be on our list of favourite Vegan sweets.
 
vegan sweets - rosy applesROSY APPLES  - Vegan and Gluten-Free
Slightly different from a traditional apple, but still Vegan friendly! Rosy Apples have a tangy and sweet apple flavour combination, encased in a lovely sugar coating. My personal favourite childhood sweets! Incredibly moreish and one you don't want to share! Just like your retro childhood sweetshop, luckily for you, we have them available to purchase right here.
 
RAINBOW DROPS  - Vegan
Who remembers Rainbow Drops? Produced by Swizzels Matlow over 90 years ago, Rainbow Drops were invented before World War II. As well as amazingly having no artificial colouring, Rainbow Drops are also gelatine free which means that they are both vegetarian and vegan friendly!
 
BARLEY SUGAR  - Vegan and Gluten-Free
Can you remember eating these as a child? Those were the days! Barley Sugar boiled sweets are unique in their taste and have been around for decades, best of all they're completely vegan friendly! We also sell SUGAR FREE BARLEY SUGARS /sugar-free-barley-sugar (but these are only vegetarian) which are just as tasty.
 
FLYING SAUCERS  - Vegan and Gluten-Free
Travel back in time with these retro classics! Flying Saucers are a definite school tuck-shop classic. As one of the most popular sweets that we stock at AQuarterOf.co.uk, you don't want to miss out - and it's a bonus that as well as being vegan, they are also gluten-free
 
EDINBURGH ROCK  - Vegan and Gluten-Free
Soft and crumbly, Edinburgh Rock is probably the most delicious type of rock out there. A melt-in-the-mouth treat for anyone and it comes in a selection of different colours. You may have had this as a child, but if not, you should give it a try. We think you'll love it.
 
JELLY TOTS  - Vegan and Gluten-Free
A staple in the vegan world, Rowntree's Jelly Tots are suitable for vegans and are also gluten-free. These brightly coloured, chewy jelly dots, encased in sugar, are a nostalgic favourite. Today, they're made with real fruit juices instead of artificial flavours, so these vegan friendly treats taste better and have a longer-lasting flavour than ever before.
 
HANDMADE STRAWBERRY AND CREAMS  - Vegan and Gluten-Free 
Our handmade Strawberry and Cream sweets are the perfect sweet to take you back to summer whatever the season and whatever the weather. They're full of flavour and taste of fresh summer strawberries with cream, you can almost feel like you are at Wimbledon, A delicious sweet with the fruit, creamy combination that is completely vegan friendly. What's not to like? 
 
PONTEFRACT CAKES  - Vegan 
Liquorice may not be for everyone, and we may not always think of liqourice as a classic vegan-friendly sweet but these traditional chews are iconic! Pontefract Cakes have been around for centuries since 1614 to be precise. We sell the classic Tavener Pontefract Cakes rather than other brands. We've tried and tested most variations on the market, and we believe that ours are by far the nicest and of the highest quality.

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...

Christmas TV Times

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...

Loads of memories of the most nostalgia-inducing ice lollies from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Which was your favourite?

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...

The Excruciating Excitement Starts Here!

What happened each December, about now, that got us so excited?
