To celebrate HM The Queen’s 70 years on the throne, A.L. Simpkins & Co. of Sheffield are offering a tin of their distinctive and world famous travel sweets for a prize in our special competition.
There’s something cosy and comforting about those charming tins of boiled fruit sweets that have played an essential part in so many of our adventures, from family day trips to the coast to long-haul flights to the other side of the world.
Simpkins Travel Sweets were first produced in 1921 and are still in demand all over the world, with loyal customers in 40 countries as far afield as Colombia, Japan, Australia, the USA and Malaysia. When Leslie Simpkin returned to his Sheffield home from the First World War with the germ of an idea to produce and sell glucose sweets, he immediately hit upon a recipe for success that has seen his family business thrive over the last 100 years.
What better way to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee than with a special tin of Simpkins’ Sweets
