I haven't known any kid who hates sweets. Even when I was younger most of my childhood Sweets friends love sweets. Being fully a preschool teacher most of my time are spend with kids and there ain't nothing on the planet which they love the most but sweets. From candies, chocolates, gummy candies, and whatnot so long as it tastes sweet - they like it! I also have realized that even their parents provide them with something sweet for the snacks or lunch. The sweets section in the canteen is also a big hit for them. Having said that it occurred in my experience if the youngsters of today will also love the traditional retro sweets that I have grown enjoying with?
After wondering for a while, I looked at bringing some retro sweets to school as a prize for the mini classroom talent reveal that we're having. I also provide brought enough sweets for the class. Though it was a area of the mini event that we're holding it is also a survey for me. I was thinking could be the preference for sweets also change just like how fashion and other trends do. Will the standard sweets of yesterday still appeal with the newest generation?
Curious of how the children will react to the retro sweets, I dropped by the local candy shop and looked around their selection. It is a while since I've last had my share of these delectable treats. I used to love sweets quite definitely when I was younger. Don't get me wrong, I still love sweets but it's not that usually that I have the change to indulge in the irresistible sweetness of candies and chocolates. From time to time my mom and brother would send me some sweets and if have the chance I purchase them myself from the candy shop or grocery stores.
After a few years of looking around the selections, I didn't notice any retro sweets of any sort. I immediately asked the candy shop sales personnel for assistance. To my dismay, they don't sell any retro sweets at all! They just have the contemporary sweets all of us see in groceries and convenience stores. I almost lost hopes when he gave me numbers and addresses of the other candy shops in the city. Well, at the least I still have other options.
The mini classroom talent show was set on Monday a few weeks, on Saturday of the week I drove to the town and checked the candy shops which were referred to my by the personnel in the area candy shop inside our area. It took me a few hours before I finally found one which sells retro sweets. I was really surprised because unlike the other candy shops, they sell nothing but traditional sweets! Considering their selections brought back happy memories of my childhood.
