Lately I’ve been trying to be really good with my healthy eating and for the most part I’ve been doing really well. I have had a little treat now and again and that’s where Mr Big Tops came into the picture. Not heard of Mr Big Tops? Well it’s a subscription service with a difference that is owned by Richard and Abigail. The idea is that you can get a box delivered to your door that is packed full of sweets that you love. Mr Big Tops have a huge range to choose from and whilst the range is full of predominately classic sweets, there are a few “newer” varieties too.
Now in terms of price Mr Big Tops boxes retail at £3.99 for a box twice a week, £4.25 for a box once a week, £4.99 for a box once a fortnight and £5.49 for a box once a month. So essentially, the more frequently you get the boxes, the cheaper each box becomes. Each box also fits through a standard size letter box meaning that you don’t actually have to be in to sign for the box which is really good for people who are very busy or work full time. Now some might think that the prices of the boxes are pretty steep however, you do actually get quite a good amount of sweets in a box. In mine I received eight different sweets and the box was almost bursting as everything was so snugly fitted in. In terms of how many boxes to order depends on how much you like sweets I guess. The box I received took Marc and I two weeks to get through but for someone candy mad, it could be gone in next to no time so I think it is really good of Mr Big Tops to offer discount to those with a really sweet tooth who order boxes more frequently.
In terms of the sweet quality, everything arrived safe and sound. The box was well presented and each bag within the box contained fresh candy. The sweets I received were bubblys, chocolate candy cones, a cola fizz wiz, flying saucers, giant jazzies, shrimp, a wham bar and some cherry flavoured lips. I really enjoyed all the different types of sweets in the box as they were tasty and of great quality. One type of sweet that did stand out from the rest was definitely the flying saucers purely because they made me feel so nostalgic. When I was a nipper I used to get a bag of them from a lovely old lady on a Saturday morning when I used to get the paper at the shop for my parents and to be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever had one since then so as you can imagine it took me right back which made me think of all the lovely memories I had of being a carefree child.
All in all I really like Mr Big Tops. I love the nostalgia that comes along with their sweets and I’m a big fan of their wide range of sweet treats. I think their packaging is not only effective but fun too. I definitely recommend checking their subscription boxes out if you are someone who is a big candy lover.
