It makes a change from chocolate orange this Christmas!

Retro sweets fans are going wild for the new Christmas collection from Swizzels.

And, after a sneak peak at the range, we can’t say we blame them.

It features huge tubes of Drumsticks, Love Hearts and Parma Violets, among other treats.

“Whether you’re buying for family, friends or colleagues, or stocking up for a small get-together, there’s something for all occasions and traditions,” a Swizzels rep revealed.

Top of our Christmas wish list is one of the gift tubes.

There are four to pick from – Love Hearts, Drumsticks, Parma Violets and the Sweet Treats Gift Tube.

The Love Hearts tube features packets of emoji Love Hearts, while the Drumstick tube contains three different types of lolly – original, Bubblegum and Cherry & Apple flavours.

I bought a party bag of little bags of Squashies to give to my team as part of a Christmas gift bag but I ate them all and now have to buy more to replace them.

The Sweet Treats offering contains a range of Swizzels’ most popular sweets – including Love Hearts and Refreshers.

And the best part of all is that the 108g tube only costs £1.

You can pick them up in all major retailers or online at the Swizzels website here.

“Yes please!” declared one fan of the sweets on Instagram.

What do Brits say about the retro sweets?

Swizzels’ Clare Lynch said: “Christmas is likely to look a little different for many this year, but what doesn’t change is the desire to treat our loved ones.

“Whoever you’re buying gifts for and however you’re celebrating in 2020, Swizzels has got the perfect festive treat.’”

Brits appear to agree, with both Squashies and Sweet Shop Favourites – Swizzels sweets – trending on Twitter this afternoon (December 4).

“I bought a party bag of little bags of Squashies to give to my team as part of a Christmas gift bag but I ate them all and now have to buy more to replace them,” quipped one retro sweets fan!
