Boxed candied fruit/fruit jellies - gift for great aunt?

My great aunt is 90 and her favourite sweets are fruit jellies, like York Fruits. Lakeland have some nicer ones but they're surprisingly hard to find boxed - even Waitrose are just doing bags. I was wondering if a step up would be a box of nice candied fruit. Lakeland used to do this but I can't find anything.

Any thoughts? I'd like to spend around the £15 mark in total, so perhaps a box of each.

Hmm my FIL likes the fruit jellies but not the candied fruit.

I thought I saw some in the National Trust shop but it may have been bagged too.

York Fruits and the Lakeland ones are the only boxed fruit jellies I've seen - I just think that for a present I'd want them to be boxed. Will call up my grandma and ask if she'd like the candied fruit.

I'm sure our waitrose has the boxes of York ones

Update - after trawling Amazon I found that Churchill's Confectionary makes some lovely gift tins of fruit jellies. I think this is what I will go for.

Curls I meant Waitrose doing own brand ones in bags, rather than York Fruits.

These sound nice and ship to the UK

Seen the Amazon ones - they look better - going to order some too!

Oh the Amazon one is just a tin with two bags of jellies inside ...

Do you mean the Churchill's ones?

Treasure Island Sweets have the New Berry Fruits, hmm...

And yes I saw the Florian ones, they do sound nice and might be worth considering. In fact the whole site sounds nice grin

Lidl have ones exactly like the florin ones around Xmas time.

Lidl is a right trek from here (and no Aldi at all!) but I will have a look, thanks.

Thorntons are doing jellies in boxes this year
