Creamola Foam was the drink of choice for generations of children across Scotland who would enjoy making “big glasses” using the flavoured crystals and water. The fruity drink crystals were available from the 1950’s to early October 1998 after Nestle stopped production. There was a hole in Scotland’s heart as the iconic drink was no longer available and remaining cans of Creamola Foam were sold for small fortunes on eBay. There was many online petitions from a large number of Scottish and Irish people who were upset they could no longer obtain cans of Creamola Foam and wanted to see the resumption of the brand.
As the power of nostalgia is immense, a confectionary company in Fife, Scotland, began producing cans of Krakatoa Foam using the exact same recipe as Creamola Foam. In 2010, Krakatoa Foam was available to purchase and it received rave reviews from happy customers. After all, it is Scotland’s second national soft drink following Irn Bru. Today, Krakatoa Foam is one our biggest sellers at Scottish Retro Sweets, available in six delicious flavours for only £4.00 per can.
Another of our best selling sweets is Chelsea Whoppers. The soft chewing fudge with a cocoa coating was another classic Scottish sweet that was so traditional and old-fashioned … it was almost extinct! Their delicious, soft, chocolatey fudge like consistency make Chelsea Whoppers rare to find these days, as they are in such high demand. However, Scottish Retro Sweets are proud distributors of Chelsea Whoppers, a sweet that represents the golden age of confectionary and with their new and improved taste … takes you right back to childhood. You can pick up a packet of Chelsea Whoppers on our website for only £1.99!
