Let’s face it, novelty underwear and some cheap carnations from the petrol station aren’t going to impress anyone this Valentine’s Day. We’ve all been there; waiting until the last minute, forgetting to buy the card, then seeing the disappointed look on the wife’s face when breakfast in bed ends up being a lukewarm cup of tea and a slice of burnt toast.

This year, blow her socks off with a trip down memory lane and a retro sweets hamper from Bah Humbugs. Imagine her delight when she opens a box filled with some of her childhood favourites; Dip Dabs, Sherbet Fountains, Cola Bottles, Shrimps, Candy Necklaces, Love Hearts, Fudge, Refreshers, Fizzers, Drumsticks, and Refresher Chews to name only a few! We’re talking about over 1kg of retro sweets here! You could even add some additional classics to your order like Apple and Custards, Dolly Mixtures or Rhubarb Rock – trust us, you’ll be onto a winner.

Perhaps she’s a big liquorice fan – if so, Bah Humbugs offer one of the best selections of liquorice products in the country, like Pontefract Cakes, Liquorice Torpedoes, Liquorice Cream Rock, Liquorice Wheels, Liquorice Sticks, Liquorice Root, Liquorice Toffees, Blackcurrant & Liquorice, Soft Eating Liquorice and more.

And you don’t have to stop at Valentine’s Day. For birthdays or anniversaries, the Bah Humbugs Decade Buckets are filled with a selection of treats from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. The Groovy Seventies Sweet Bucket contains some far out treats like Fizzy Cola Bottles, Lion’s Midget Gems, Drumsticks, Anglo Bubbly, Liquorice Comfits, Popping Candy (Space Dust), Finger of Fudge and lots more. A very thoughtful gift, at a very delicate price!

You don’t have long, so get yourself over to www.bahhumbugs.com today, and put a genuine smile on her face this Valentine’s Day. If you prefer to visit us in-store, our little retro sweet shop in Masham, North Yorkshire is in a perfect location for a romantic day out, where you can finish the day with a Fish & Chip supper from Fryer Tuck and a pint in The Bay Horse.
