Chewy Sweets

Jelly sweet lover?  Or do you prefer a good old-fashioned gummy sweet to give your jaw some exercise?

If you love sweets with a bit (or a lot) of a chew to them, you've come to the right place.  Chomp on your favourites here...
Remember your childhood sweetshop?  There were the shelves of colourful boiled sweets... and they were great.  

And then there were all those sweets to chew - in our sweetshop they used to be in boxes and tubs on the counter... and under the counter too.  Some were wrapped (like Black Jacks and Fruit Salads), some were bars (Wham Bars and Highland Toffee), tubes (like Opal Fruits and Chewits) and others were unwrapped (shrimps and milk teeth).  And then of course there were bubblegums aplenty... destined to end up stuck to your faceas you attempted your biggest bubble ever... only for it to puncture and deflate from your nose to your chin.

And then there were the other types of quirky chews... like strawberry bootlaces, chewy fruity tongues and pencils in a range of fruit flavours.

There were traditional gums and jellies too in a myriad colours and flavours.  And the manufacturers were always adding more sticky creations to tempt us - they always seemed to develop a lot more chewy sweets than their boiled counterparts.

On the more traditional side you had the slabs of jaw-ache inducing toffees - creamy, treacle and liquorice flavours, chocolate coated toffees (both plain and milk), eclair toffees with chocolate inside the creamy toffee... and also toffee with nuts and/or raisins.

Many of the true traditional confectionery classics fit into the chewy category too.  No childhood sweetshop, nor any self respecting confectionery store even today, would be complete without such classics as Jelly Babies and Liquorice Allsorts.  And that leads us neatly into the whole range of liquorce sweets that you can still get today... from hard Bassetti and liquorice pipes to Lions Poor Bens and Liquorice Gums.

For pure variety the confectionery you could chew was surely the king.  

And you can still enjoy many of the traditional favourites today.  Along with more than a few new creations as well of course.

If it's chewy or boiled, if they still make it you can get it here... Mouth watering yet?
