Fun treat





Melt in the mouth loveliness

Are you looking for a sweet treat that will take you to outer space? If so, you might want to try flying saucer sweets, also known as sherbet flying saucers, sherbert UFOs. These are small spheroidal capsules of rice paper filled with tangy sherbet powder that fizz in your mouth. They come in different colours and flavours, such as lemon, orange, raspberry, and cola... sounds liek a good comibination of flavours for spaceship lollies too!

Flying saucer sweets have a long history that dates back to the 1950s, when they were first produced by a Belgian company that made communion wafers. They became popular in the UK in the 1960s and 1970s, thanks to the space race and the interest in science fiction. They are still a favourite among many people who love retro sweets and nostalgic memories.

But are flying saucers gluten free? The answer is yes! Our flying saucers are made of rice paper and sherbet, which do not contain any gluten or animal products.  However, some brands may use different ingredients or have traces of allergens, so always check the label before you buy or consume them.

Are flying saucer sweets vegan?  Most flying saucer sweets are vegan. The ingredients typically used to make flying saucers are vegan-friendly. 

Flying saucer sweets are a fun and delicious way to enjoy a blast from the past. Whether you call them space ships sweets, flying saucer sherbet sweets, UFO wafer candy, or sherbet space sweets, they are sure to make you smile and satisfy your sweet tooth.
