A little bit about A Quarter Of…
A Quarter Of is a nostalgic online sweet shop which replaces the corner sweet shop that everyone remembers growing up with, which is sadly disappearing. Our sweets bring back fond memories of childhood days when the sun shone for longer, when you went everywhere with a whoopee cushion in your back pocket, and when your 6p change from your weekly dose of penny chews went on a copy of Whizzer and Chips.
We have around 600 old favourites – from Space Dust to Cherry Lips, Sweet Tobacco to Anglo Bubbly Bubblegum, Candy Necklaces to Blackjacks… And we’re adding more all the time – if a sweet is still around, we’ll find it and stock it!
Are we popular? Yes! We’ve been featured on BBC (Good Food Live, Working Lunch), ITV (This Morning), SKY News, Radio 5, The Sun, The Mirror, Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Guardian, The Mail…. the list goes on and on. In fact, we’re recognised by many in the national media as the voice of the industry, so media coverage has always been one of our strengths…. we’re a modest lot!
As well as offering a huge range of sweets, we offer some fantastically original gifts – from our best-selling Wooden Boxes of Nostalgia to our beautiful printed gift boxes (always sent out with a fabulous fuschia ribbon wrapped around it), to jars in all shapes and sizes. We’re being used as an original gift resource more and more, so this is creating really exciting growth within the company. We’re also constantly adding to our Gifts section.
