Happy memories!

Lovely aniseed flavoured jelly sweets that bought back happy childhood memories.

Great treat

My partner absolutely loves them and they never last more than a day once he’s got a hold of them!


A childhood favourite! As tasty as I remember them to be!

A time machine for tastebuds ❤︎

These have the same wonderful aniseed strength and flavour as I remembered from a very long time ago! Such a treat.

Until I discovered this site I hadn’t had any of these in years because the rest of the sweets in the packet had become ludicrously sweet. Last time I had any, apart from the spogs the other sweets caused a shock-pain in my teeth… similar to crunching ice with sensitive teeth.

They are still that good that I keep having to increase the order quantity for friends, as with the quantity of the Amarelli Spezzata I buy here too. Until a few years back I used to buy the brand of soft liquorice named after that huge, pretty, bamboo-eating bear; I bought that because the others had almost as much aniseed as liquorice, but now they put aniseed in theirs so I came here; and stayed.

The only negative I can say about spogs is that they contain beef-gelatine. Surely Barratts could use an alternative these days? Despite that, I love these as much as I ever did.

Finally… Liquorice Heaven maybe you could have a word with Barratts for me, and the vegetarians/vegans of the world too, and ask them to get the beef gelatine out of the sweets please?

I’m not vegan but even I have to make a conscious decision when I eat them not to think about the beef by-product in them (especially when I think of exactly which beef by-product).

Still, that’s not Liquorice H’s responsibility because they have very clear and easy to find ingredients lists that meant I knew their contents and ordered anyway.

These jelly spogs have been a favourite of mine since childhood. After all these years they still taste the same and fill me with nostalgia. I will be buying them forever
