If you've got a sweet tooth and want some sweets that come from the USA then this is the place to make a visit. Also a good selection of ice creams to enjoy on a nice hot day whilst taking in the sea views.

I had been recommended by a friend to go and visit this sweet shop. As I walked in I thought that the shop was absolutely brilliant! There is a wide selection of sweets and the ice cream is amazing. But unfortunately the service was absolutely terrible, the woman behind the counter was rude and managed to ruin my day to... More

Great little shop, serve drinks and ice cream, although on this occasion we were shopping for a gift and the obligatory souvenir magnet.

We always visit when we come to Southwold - where else can you go to a sweet shop that opens until 10pm? The choice of global sweets is amazing and the costs reflect the import costs. The ice creams are amazing too especially as a evening treat. Our boys especially love the pez machines & now have a darth Vader... More

Every little treat you could think of, lovely pick and mix, ice creams, chocolate and everything else. We have spent a fortune in this shop since it opened, can't resist. Don't send your kids in on their own with money as you won't get any change. Ice creams very prices, would go else where for them. £7.00 for 2 cones... More

......this is the place to come for your ice cream. Not easy to spot even when you're looking but worth seeking out.

Had to visit again after discovering this place last summer. The ice cream isn't cheap but is absolutely delicious. So many favourite flavours and lots of new combinations too!

Description
Although we're not a restaurant as such, we do have a couple of tables at which you can enjoy a scoop or two of delicious ice cream and a peruse of our selection of goodies!!
We have one of the largest selection of imported goodies in the area from America, Australia and New Zealand so if it's Tim Tams, Lucky Charms or Jelly Belly Beans you'll know where to come! :)
Our ice cream is either local or Italian and we always have a choice of at least 15 flavours :)
If it's a souvenir you're after, we've got that covered too, see you soon!
