Old-fashioned sweetshop

A great selection of jar sweets. Fudge is excellent; the liquorice candy is wonderful for relieving coughs. The Black Bullets were a reminder of well made confectionery. The young lady serving had a remarkable knowledge and was extremely helpful.

Drove 30 mins to get to this shop yesterday to buy real sweets.
We were not disappointed the lady at the shop was great,she's good fun and knows her sweets. She had lots of time for my two grandchildren and she's got a good sense of humour.
Sadly the great British sweet is on the decline, there's more to the world of sweets than bleedin' Haribos.
One good find, across the road was a nice little cafe where we had lunch, get this tho.......... They sell real chips,yes those ones made from a real potato! not those frozen frankenstein ones.
Well done Shildon, real sweets and real chips,you have renewed my faith in Britain....all may not be lost.

Just like a sweetie shop used to be before hi-tech and fast food. Even before wrappers!
A lovely piece of yesteryear.

Its a shop that just rolled back the years.
I was 10 years old again spending way to long choosing which sweets to have.
I am now 41 and my Daughter who is 8 chose her sweets way quicker than my wife and I.
So many choices from the shelves upon shelves of old jar sweets.
So what did we get?
A quarter of -
Daughter - Pineapple cubes and a quarter of mini eggs
Wife - Fruit duds (mini Edinburgh rock balls)
Me - Chewy nuts (toffee chocolate balls - doublers!!!)

A hidden gem of a sweet shop in the North East County Durham
Jun 2011
i ordered some old fashioned sweets of the internet from this little shop in Shildon, County Durham, www.sweetgreetingsshildon.co.uk, and was amazed with the speedy service and quality of sweets. So much so, that my family and i travelled the 40 odd miles to pay it a visit and were very pleased to see a great customer service in the shop to match that online. We will always be buying our online sweets from this great sweet shop. Many thanks all a Sweet Greetings Shildon, keep up the good work. We are actually thinking of renting a victorian sweet cart of them also for our upcoming birthday party.
