This is awesome

An eBay auction of the last ever bag of Woolworths' pick 'n' mix has raised a whopping £14,500 for charity.

The 800g of assorted sweets, which include fizzy cola bottles, rhubarb and custards and pineapple cubes, attracted over 100 bids.

It was thought the sweets would raise several hundred pounds for the Retail Trust, which supports shop workers who have lost their jobs, yet the final figure shot well above that.

The bag was taken from a shelf at the Petts Wood Woolworths store in Bromley, Kent, by manager Ed Adams.

Mr Adams said: "I spotted at least a bag's worth of pick 'n' mix was left in the counter just before I closed the shop for the last time.

"I then decided to bag it up before contacting Retail Trust to see if it could be auctioned on their behalf.

"I hope the auction raises funds to go towards the Retail Trust Helpline, which is a lifeline for retail workers and their families during these difficult times."

Woolworths administrators Deloitte LLP have certified that the bag is indeed the last bag of the chain's pick 'n' mix.

The Retail Trust is championed by many of the UK's leading retailers such as Sir Philip Green, Sir Stuart Rose and Harold Tillman.

Carey Maguire, eBay Pop-Culture Specialist, said: "The last bag of Woolworths pick 'n' mix is a one of a kind item that gives someone the chance to own a piece of history."


and it looks tasty!

Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.

I hate how much it was sold for.

I just keep thinking:

"If only I had bought another pack of Pic n mix, I would be so much richer!"

Woolies pick 'n' mix has been sub-standard for a while now. More expensive than, and not as nice as Haribo, really.
