Nation’s favourite sweet found

Fizzy cola bottles top the charts


The fizzy cola bottle sweet has been crowned the nation’s favourite, according to a poll by Marks & Spencer.


In the light of their new Pick & Mix confectionery range, Marks & Spencer polled 4,000 people to see which sweet tickled their taste buds the most.

It seems that the men and women surveyed still rate nostalgic treats such as rhubarb and custards, Black Jacks, flying saucers and Bon Bons, which all made the top 20.

While the poll was topped by the classic fizzy cola bottles, its non-fizzy counterpart came in at second place. Contemporary entries include Marks & Spencer’s favourite, Percy Pigs, and chocolate raisins also proved popular.
