Sweet Shop

I came across this lovely little sweet shop whilst out and about with my daughter during the week. The sun was shining for a change and the array of traditional sweets just drew us in. Everything was displayed in bottles on the shelves and they had a variety of traditional sweets to choose from. Everything was weighed and then wrapped in pink and white candy striped bags - a real treat! We got some barley sugar sweets, some lemon and strawberry hearts, some cola fizz bombs and two lollipops!

What were (or are!) your favourite sweets as a child?


  1. I worked in a sweetshop on a Saturday from the age of 14 to 18. It may explain why I can't stand sweets now although I do love Lindt chocolate.

  2. Its so cute! Its kind of retro and its kind of modern. I would spend waaaaayyy to much time in a shop like that.

  3. I agree with Lisa, I'd be in there for ages! I am partial to a pear drop or two though! x

    1. I have a terribly sweet tooth - chocolate,sweets , it doesn't matter what ....I love them! Thinking of going back for some strawberry bon bons ( you know the ones with toffee in the middle and sweet, powdery strawberry stuff on the outside!) ...Oh dear! X

  4. How fun! I believe I could spent a grand amount of time there! I love anything sweet/sour, and chocolate is ALWAYS on my list. Thanks, by the way for the award..I'm humbled and excited. I hope to get to it very soon. Have a beautiful rest-of-the-weekend :)

  5. I want some candy just looking at the photos. My favorite candies are Hot Tamales, Reeses peanut butter cups, Tootsie Roll suckers, red vines, salt water taffy, York peppermint patties, peanut brittle, M&M's, oh...sorry! Got a little carried away. ;D
