Decade Sweet Boxes at A Quarter Of


Fancy a pile of sweets themed to a particular era? That's what you get with these Decade Sweet Boxes at A Quarter Of.

The idea is simple, get a wooden box, stuff it with all the sweets from back in that particular day, stick on a label based around that decade and fire it off to your favoured sweet lover. Or eat them all yourself, you've paid after all.

Pictured above is the 1980s box, which includes the likes of Anglo Bubbly Bubble Gum, Cherry Lips, Fizzers, Fizzy Cherry Cola Bottles, Kola Kubes, Pear Drops, Rhubarb and Custard, Strawberry Foam Mushrooms, White Mice, the Cadburys Wispa, Candy Sticks, Caramac, Drumsticks, Love Hearts, Sherbet Fountains, Space Dust and Wham Bars in varying quantities. £37.76 is the price of it all.

Chocolate Alarm Clock at Flatspot


No, we don't get the name either, but we like the look of this Chocolate Alarm Clock at Flatspot.

It's a classic alarm clock, the kind of clock that used to wake you up in days gone by, before the world discovered the 'joys' of radio DJs shouting at you at 7am.

If you prefer a loud bell to Chris Moyles, you'll find it here, as well as a bold red and black design, metallic legs and a sweeping seconds hand to go with the contrasting grey hands for the hour and minutes. £20 is the price.

Chocolate Love – Robert Indiana’s artwork in chocolate

Indiana chocoSince its creation in the mid-sixties, Robert Indiana's Love artwork has appeared in many forms and inspired countless others. This could be the most popular yet – 'Chocolate Love', a recreation of the work in cocoa. 

Taking the form of the instantly recognisable stacked letters with slanting 'O', this miniature work of art measures 10cm square and is made from solid dark chocolate, covered in edible gold dust. 

At £7.50, it's probably the most affordable version of the artwork too – though is probably too tasty to be around for long.

Lanvin Chocolate vintage poster

Lanvin poster

A sweet piece of vintage advertising pulled from the archive courtesy of this Lanvin Chocolate poster.

It comes from the archives of Lanvin Chocolat whose rich advertising history also features an 1970 advert featuring Salvador Dali declaring himself crazy for the product. This particular piece features Red Riding Hood feeding the wolf with the chocolate and apparently dates from 1961. Its bright colour and childish style is just as charming today. 

The poster costs $14.99
