This is a great sweetshop. Locally owned and just like a real sweetshop should be, with wall-to-wall lollies of every persuasion, as well as an impressive array of delicious locally made fudge which you can taste on request. My favourite was the salted caramel. Took some home for my children and they absolutely loved it!

I remembered my child-hood as soon as I entered here. The collection of candies, chocolates and all other goodies are simply mind boggling. Difficult to decide on which one to buy. Staff is pretty helpful

The staff are very friendly and they happily give you numerous flavours to try without any pressure to purchase. You can purchase the fudge in 100g blocks or a minimum of 50g. I'm not a huge fudge fan but I did love the chocolate peanut butter and the dark chocolate sea salt caramel, as they weren't too sweet, so I... More

Free tastings, delicious (but rich!) fudge. So many flavours you get a bit overwhelmed at first. Can I recommend the creme brulee and choc fudge - no regrets! Went back several times for different flavours and got good reviews for the jelly tip and mint chocolate given as gifts.

Fudge of every description and of prime quality may be devoured here. A must visit for every visitor to Queenstown. They even have outlets at both Queenstown and Auckland airports. Couldn't carry enough of the sinful stuff!

Some classic confectionary here that I'd forgotten so worth a visit if time permits. Staff were friendly and not pushy. Came away with my daily sugar fix
