Sue Baker's view...

You’re unlikely to get a bigger dose of nostalgia this year than A History of Sweets in 50 Wrappers – and if you come over all misty-eyed over the missing sweets of your childhood you just might find them given a mention. Hiss at the manufacturers who have dared to tamper with the packaging – or even worse the contents. A lot of sweet nonsense of course but goodness me it jogs the memories, a proper bit of retro heaven!

Synopsis

A History of Sweets in 50 Wrappers by Steve Berry, Phil Norman

A super-sweet guide to all your favourite sweets from years gone by. A History of Sweets in 50 Wrappers is a colourful and comical history of sweets and chocolates. If you ever dreamt of being the Milkybar Kid, if you remember when Snickers were Marathons and Double Deckers had raisins in them, if you ever checked the colour of your next Fruit Pastille before offering it out, this book is for you. It will lead you down memory lane until you reach the corner shop and load up a 10p mix-up bag. Fully illustrated, with hundreds of classic wrappers and adverts, A History of Sweets in 50 Wrappers is packed full of memories, fun facts, historical research ...and lots and lots of sweets!
