My Sweetie Jar
Why did you decide to specialise in retro sweets?
We decided to branch out into sweets after the MD heard an animated conversation in a café by two mums reminiscing about Retro Sweets! He came into the office claiming a brainwave and here we are today!
Do you have a team of people whose job it is to discover retro sweets?
Everyone in the company is encouraged to come up with new ideas and suggest new sweets! We value everyone’s opinion as they work with the sweets day in and out and see what people like.
Describe what a typical day is like for you?
For me, each day varies. I make sure that everyone is happy and working hard, that the site is working and looking as it should. I also talk to as many people as possible about our site and the sweets to make sure we are doing all we can to cater for people’s needs. That is without the admin and everything else! Our main aim is to have a laugh, enjoy our jobs and go home smelling like sweets ;)
What do you most enjoy about your job?
We have an amazing team at mysweetiejar.com. Every day is different and brings new challenges. And it is never dull having meetings as we have our mad sweetie boardroom complete with arcade machine!
What’s your favourite retro sweet and why?
I love Fun Gums! The little tooth brushes and teeth!!
