An old-fashioned treat – made with natural ingredients

Old-fashioned sweets are back in favour, but this time around they come made with only pure and natural ingredients, with no preservatives or additives.

Nia Wood and Mike Watt, for instance, have formed Sweet Treats to make melt-in-the-mouth light and fluffy marshmallows in five flavours – vanilla, caramel ripple, coconut, lemon meringue and raspberry – and they cost just £3.20 for 100g. Pile them up in glass bowls for a retro after-dinner treat.
