Hancocks is taking consumers on a trip down memory lane with Remember When? budget bags of old-time favourite boiled sweets.
Eight varieties have been launched in 80g bags - rhubarb and custard, small pear drops, cola cubes, rosie apples, strawberries and cream, aniseed twist, pineapple chunks and throat & chest - with an rsp of 39p.
Jonathan Summerley, confectionery buyer at Hancocks, said it had been selling the sweets in large bags for pick ‘n’ mix counters, but demand had risen so much this year that it decided to launch them in hang bags.
