Flying Saucer Sweets
Flying saucers, ironically a firm favourite both sides of the Atlantic, are shaped UFO’s made with rice paper and filled with tangy, sour sherbet. They were first made in the 1950s for a nation of children and adults who’d experienced rationed sweets for many years. They were a huge hit, and have continued to be one being ranked in a 2004 survey as the UK’s most popular sweet of all time.
The sherbet filling dissolves on your tongue meaning they are non-chewy for those amongst us with weak teeth or gums. The purchasing options are endless at Retro Sweets; bags, boxes, bouquets, jars and vintage wicker hampers mean they can be presented nicely for a personal treat or in a wonderful arrangement for that gift with a twist.
