visited this shop yesterday-previous reviewer has listed all the delights found here so i wont repeat it. but oh! what delicious treats are to be found here, i practically had to be dragged screaming from the premises before i spent the entire household budget! lovely staff complete a prefect sweet paradise
What a joy to find at the top of the High St in Winchester! A shop that sells all the old sweets that one thought had long disappeared. Buttered brazils, strawberry Fizz Wizzes, humbugs of various stripes, liquorice is all its awful guises (I hated it) including the packet of sherbert with a liquorice stick inside like a small firework. Those flying-saucer sherbets in different art-deco colours; aniseeed balls, pear drops, barley sugar, sarsparilla, sherbert lemons. A treasure trove. Interestingly, most are still made in Scotland and the North of England. It's a labour of love by the owner, Judith Burnett, to keep each jar stocked. How lucky we are that she does.
