SWEETIE fans might want to head on down to Poundland as the discounter is bringing back an array of retro sweets.
From Caramac bars to Flying Saucers to Mint Crumbles there’s something for everyone in Poundland’s selection of tuck shop treats.
The classic sweets will be sold in Poundland stores across the UK and they all cost just £1.
And some of these treats of yesteryear we couldn’t even find being sold at any of the four major supermarkets.
Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco all fail to stock Fruity Tubes, Lyons’ Mallows, Rainbow Belts, Mint Crumbles, Crazy Rollz Bubble Gum, Sparx Popping Candy, Toffee Whirls, and Vimto Mini Fizzy Pencils.
Poundland is also bringing back Smiths crisps in simply salted, salt and vinegar, and cheese and onion – something none of the other major supermarkets sell – although they do have their own versions.
Which retro sweets is Poundland selling?
HERE’s the full list of retro sweets being sold by Poundland and how prices compare to Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, and Tesco:
- Breakaway, 19g a bar (eight-pack) – All four supermarkets sell these for £1
- Caramac, 30g a bar (three-pack) – Sainsbury’s is the only major retailer to sell these and it sells them as single bars for 65p

And while some of the major supermarkets stock the likes of raspberry and coconut Ruffles and Fry’s Chocolate and Peppermint Creams, they don’t sell other flavours that Poundland will.
These include peppermint Ruffles and Fry’s Peppermint Cream.
Poundland is also going to be selling a host of old school biscuit bars, such as Breakaways, Clubs, and Wagon Wheel’s but all of the major supermarkets already sell these.
We’ve asked Poundland how many calories are in all of the new treats and we’ll update this story if we hear back.
In the meantime, bear in mind that an adult man should eat around 2,500 calories a day while it’s 2,000 for a woman, according to NHS guidelines.
Poundland has over 850 stores. Use its store locator tool to find your nearest.
But there’s no need to rush as the retailer has confirmed that all of the treats are back for good.
The move by Poundland comes as some old sweets brands are being ditched, such as Rowntree’s Tooty Frooties.
