  • Amazing sweets kids loved the jelly beans coming back today 😊😘
  • This place is a Lake District institution, it's been around for decades selling good quality sweet products.
  • Loved the choice, staff were helpful and really friendly and the dark chocolate caramels are out of this world! I have travelled all over the place and never found caramels that tasted like they did when I was a little girl (many moons ago!) until now. So good I'm going to order more and get them delivered now 😊.
  • The only place for all your chocolatey needs and the staff and owners are very friendly and helpful! A must visit in the lakes!
  • Chocolate heaven
