This place is a little hard to find, but well worth the search if you're looking for some great Dutch licorice and sweets.

A lovely super small museum to rekindle the love for old (Dutch) sweets! A great way of showing the old candy's and buy some.

This is a small museum of an old shop, that is also selling 'old fashioned' candy. Nice for a short visit if you are in Utrecht. Interesting for kids to experience what shops looked like before they were born.
