Letterbox Love!! *Review* Mr Big Tops

You're looking for something sweet and cheerful for that someone who lives a little distance away from you, but you cannot be bothered with the buying, wrapping, Post Office queues (or prices for that matter) etc. It also must be cost effective! What do you do?

Put some real thought into a gift by knowing your recipients favourite retro sweeties! Yup. That's right, you can do that!

And you can do it as a one off for just £3.95 per box with FREE DELIVERY, or via a subscription service if you're loved one deserves a treat on a regular basis.

Mr Big Tops - The Fantastical Travelling Sweet Box Invention.

Mr Big Tops (www.mrbigtops.com) kindly sent me one of their boxes in order to review my experience. 

The boxes arrive via your letter box, bulging with 6 varieties of sweets. With over 60 sweets from memory lane to choose from, there are bound to be faves amongst them: black jacks, aniseed balls, coconut mushrooms, white mice - the list goes on.You can choose your own contents or give Mr Big Tops a whole host of 'thumbs up' on their range, and then leave the selection process to them - meaning you've got an extra surprise to look forward to! 

Easy to open, like an advent calendar!

Ours arrived, and the box was crammed. No shaking around to guess what was in there, it was far too full. This, in itself, is a bonus. When the postie dropped it through the letter box, we jumped out of our skin with the thud it made. But on opening, not a single sweet was damaged as they're safely tucked under the windowed area.

My sweets received were the following:
White Mice (larger sized ones) 
Red Liquorice Laces 
Flying Saucers
Drumstick Lollipops
Cola Bottles
Large Jelly Snake 
Oh... and a packet of popping candy Fizz Wizz for good measure!

Whether this be for your young niece or nephew that you hardly ever see but send a fiver in a card for their birthday every year, (Come on! We all had one of those relatives!!) or be it for your mum this Mother's Day, giving her a trip down memory lane...

The contents, the packaging, the delivery, the thought behind choosing the box as a gift itself, it all quite simply surpasses it's £3.95 price tag in my opinion. 10/10 - big hit here!!

My personal fave as a child - Mojos! Mmmm, do you remember them?
