Product Description

Refreshers are without doubt THE iconic Retro Sweet and a firm favourite with us here at Lolly’s Sweet Treats.

Everything from the blue wrapping, through to the Lemon flavoured chew and the tangy Sherbet inside reminds us of being 5 years old.

Unlike many old fashioned sweets, Refreshers have even kept their original wrapping. A sweet shop 80s Retro Sweet, it’s great to see that they’re still as popular today as they always were!

Not only do Refreshers taste great, they have a fun fact background. Created by accident, when Mr Trevor Matlow found that by using a new type of wrapping machine meant a sweet could be filled with powder could be placed inside. Hence their original name, New Refresher! For more fun facts why not check out the Swizzels Matlow website. There’s even a Refreshers game to play!

We’ve placed them under the 80s Retro Sweets because that’s when Refreshers were at their most popular. But they were originally created back in the 1950s, yet there’s no sign of these Retro Sweets retiring any time soon. As with all of our old fashioned sweets, we’ve placed them in the decade according to when our customers told us they were most popular.
