Whilst walking down Gloucester Road with my friend Becky in Bristol the other day, we came across this lovely sweet shop. The layout was what I would call traditional with jars of everyones favourites lining the walls. Towards the back of the shop there was a room of baking goodies, from cupcakes cases to coloured icing.
The one thing this shop brought back for me was a lovely childhood memory, sweets priced in pennies (some of them), small paper bags and plastic coloured scoops. I actually cannot remember the last time I saw a box of Black Jacks or Fruit Salads at 2p a piece! There were also marshmallows at 1p, along with flying saucers at 2p each. I got great joy standing there and counting it all, sounds sad but it really took me back.
Also 99p per 100g, bargain!! There was a fantastic range of Pick'N'Mix. Most places these days will not allow this due to some health and safety rules (well I think that's why you don't see it as often).
If you're in the Bristol area then I recommend visiting, lovely staff and something for everyone.
