During this summers’s Ashes tournament I was aware that a couple of England cricketers tweeted about and received Curious Candy hampers. A few Tuesdays ago I as watching The Great British Bake Off with no treats to hand I noticed Kevin Pietersen tweeting about these hampers so decided to investigate. Through Twitter they were offering an excellent deal so I decided to indulge my very sweet tooth and treat myself to a Candy Explosion hamper.
They describe it as follows:
You name it, this hamper has it. From hard candy to soft candy, chewy sweets, to fizzy tongue tanglers, old school retro to new world treats. This truly is the hamper for all people and all ages! Hamper measures: 130 x 320 x 220 mm

Sounded good to me! It arrived a few days later and I snapped a quick pic before exploring it fully.
To the surprise of everyone who knows me I actually do still have some sweets left in my hamper. It was very tempting to just dive in and eat and eat, but I’ve been restrained and made it last so I’ve had many evenings’ enjoyment out of it. There’s such a brilliant range of sweets included, lots of my favourites including a few I haven’t had in a long, long time. It did take me a couple of dips to realise that most of the stripy bags had two different sweets in them – of course that did mean I had to catch up with those so that I’d got an equal amount of all the loose sweets left so it wasn’t all bad!
It’s well worth keeping an eye on their Twitter account @CuriousCandy1 As they often run promotions. I can’t speak highly enough of their customer service, they were very helpful when I was sorting out my order. I’m definitely a convert and will be a repeat customer.
