This shop is a paradise for sweet lovers. Every conceivable type of sweet was here. The choice was so immense that it made choosing sweets for our grandchildren very difficult!

Found it very difficult to find places on the Isle of Wight that had locally made products I could bring home as a souvenir for friends. This shop had lots of choice and the products were much appreciated. And there are demonstrations at times. Super!

Hello Jane H, Its seems there are a number of issues I need address following this review - 1. We have never sold products as being made on the Island if they have not been produced here - we have several large areas dedicated to...More
