When it comes to celebrating a special occasion, you may think the perfect gift is a bottle of wine, or perhaps a bunch of flowers.

Here at Ask Mummy & Daddy, we disagree.

The next time you’re heading out to visit a friend, attend a party, or watch the latest film release, why not delight fellow attendees with one of our tasty sharing sweet tubs

There’s something joyous about showing up with a vibrant and colourful tub of delicious gourmet sweets, and it’s the ideal way of getting the party started. 

We’ve created this blog to tell you more, so let’s take a look.

  • The Perfect Gift – Our sharing tubs are about much more than the sweets. Delightfully gift-wrapped and with stunning labels tailored to a wide range of occasions, these jars are ready-made to delight anyone lucky enough to get one. 


  • Mood Booster – Sweets are the perfect way to start a party. Packed with flavour and aesthetically pleasing, these are the ideal endorphin boosters. All you have to do is pop open the jar, share it around the room, and you’re sure to have some delighted attendees.
