With the news that a vintage sweet shop is bringing back sweets from days gone by, we thought we’d ask readers what they’re favourite sweets from yesteryear are.

Sweet Peas is the brainchild of Amanda and Daren Payne who have successfully run their salon at the collection of buildings in St Nicholas Drive in Caister for nine years.

From his raised counter - made deliberately high so everyone feels like a child again - he will be supplying bon-bons, liquorice torpedoes and flying saucers among other sugary treats.

• Vote in our poll or let us know in the comments what your favourite sweetie is.
