Jelly snakes

Throwing a jelly snake into the mix not only adds a fruity chewy treat but adds a bit of fun too! Attention-grabbing, jelly snakes are a particular hit with children but there’s nothing to say that adults can’t enjoy them too! Jelly snakes can be enjoyed all year round but definitely remember them for a Halloween treat too.

Chocolate coins

What would a pick and mix bag be without a bit of chocolate? Everyone’s favourite edible money, chocolate coins have somewhat disappeared from shops lately but here you can rekindle your love for them.
