It’s time to stop what you’re doing and give up on adding nostalgia filters to your Instagram photos because the past is making a triumphant return.
That’s right, friends, Allen’s is bringing back some of their all-time greatest lolly hits – including those currently out of production – and creating a new range of sweets for a Sydney pop-up store set to hit Sydney from today.
Yep, you read that right. Spearmint Leaves and Green Frogs are finally making a comeback after being retired in mid-2015.
When it comes to new creations, think four different flavours of the iconic funny teeth (risp apple-mint, fruity berry-mint, summery pineapple-mint or the original vanilla-mint); an Aussie Mix made up of boomerangs, kangaroos, koalas, Aussie maps and the Harbour Bridge; Choc & Creams (a twist on the classic Strawberries & Creams), and choc-coated bananas and raspberries to name but a few.
Allen's says the "ultimate corner store" pop-up, which is located on Level 2 of the CBD's Westfield Sydney, will allow shoppers to relive the Pick'n'Mix glory days of their childhood and create bespoke lolly jars just in time for the festive (read: acceptable period of weight gain) season.
