Born or perhaps just brought up in the 1930's. Here is a nostalgia sweets gift, including the kind of sweets that were around then. Clearly they are not an exact match, especially the packaging. Fry's Chocolate Cream was one of the first chocolate bars ever produced, launched in 1866! Cadburys chocolate well that easily qualifies, its only just now been gobbled up by Kraft. Pontefract cakes, they have a very long history, have a look here! and close equivalents to the boiled sweets, the mint imperials and the coconut ice would have been available. Edinburgh rock was apparently first made in the 19th Century by a man named Alexander Ferguson. So as you can see this is an ideal 1930's nostalgia gift.

Very nice item my 80 year old mother enjoyed these for her birthday.Unfortunately they did not fit through my letter box. Thanks for the comment, glad she enjoyed them. We only state that our larger boxes fit through about 90% of Letterboxes, some are very small or have baskets on the back. Thanks again - Richard
