Royal British Legion Poppy Fruit Sweet Selection Tin

These natural, gluten free, mixed fruit travel sweets are made in partnership by Simpkins sweets who are also celebrating 100 years this year!

Founded in 1921 by Albert Leslie Simpkin on his return from the First World War, Simpkin’s concept was to manufacture high quality glucose confectionary using, wherever possible, only natural flavours and colours. The sweets were sold in chemists and pharmacy shops as this enabled him to build up a niche market and avoid being in competition with the large confectionery manufacturers. The original tins of Simpkins sweets all contained barley sugar drops (which were proven to alleviate the symptoms of travel sickness), hence the term ‘travel sweets’. During the Second World War, when sweets were rationed, Simpkins were able to provide glucose fruit drops to the troops.

This is a wonderful way to mark both RBL and Simpkins’ centenaries and raise vital funds for our Armed Forces community.
