Interflora “Sweet Nostalgia” hamper

As I type I am a very happy Caked Crusader. My fingers are slightly sticky as I have been unable to resist unwrapping a fruit salad sweet from the gorgeous Interflora
Sweet Nostalgia hamper; this is just one of the many amazing hampers that Interflora have in their range.

The quality of this hamper started the minute I undid the box – this beautiful wicker chest has leather straps with working brass buckles. I have it earmarked for holding toiletries in my bathroom as soon as the small matter of eating all the sweets is dealt with!

Ooh, the excitement – what’s in the box?

Goodies galore would be the short answer but for those of you who like details (this is basically a checklist of where my pocket money went between the ages of 5-10 years old!):

Rosey Apples 100g
Cola Cubes 100g
Haribo Tangfastics
100g Haribo Jelly Beans
100g Cadbury Chocolate Eclairs
100g Haribo Cola Bottles
100g Curly Wurly x 2
Love Hearts
Nestle Rolos 52g
Flying Saucers x 10
Sherbet Fountain x 2
Paynes Poppets Toffee x 2
Refresher Chews x 4
Giant Double Lollies x 2
Fruit Salad x 10
Black Jacks x 10
Mars Milky Way 26g x 2
Ice Cream Cones x 2 (I’m very excited about these as I’ve never had them before)

I couldn’t actually fit all the contents into one photo, so here are three photos!

Thanks to
Interflora for sending me this treat – it certainly brightened up an otherwise mundane Tuesday evening. I think it would brighten up the day of any recipient – who wouldn’t want this as a gift?

Ooooo! Those icecreams are on sale in our old-fashioned sweet shop/stationers/toy shop up here on the hill. Lucky you have a sweet tooth, even I can hear my fillings scream on eating the 'occasional' one of these.

Oooh, that looks fab - lucky you!

Wow! Lucky you! That's so cool, I'd always wondered what those hampers were like and if they were any good. There's a lot of sweets in there I've never tried, but would love to! Yum! That will last you a while!

ooohh, Rollo and Curly Wurly please!

Helen (Fuss Free Flavours) said...

Oh wow. Wow. Wow.

What a wonderful thing.

I think that you could bake something with the curly wurlys!

The only things missing are popping candy and Wham bars!
