Here’s a visual feast for anyone who grew up in the UK.
In Scotland we called them ‘sweetie shops,’ and our grannies bought sweeties from them for us. My granny always had a supply of treacle toffees for all occasions. I had missed those treacle toffees for many years!
Have you ever tried this soft Edinburgh Rock? So sweet and crumbly.
Imagine my joy to find my beloved treacle toffees again. And trust me, they keep children quiet for ages.
Should you feel the urge, you can find the British Lolly Shop at the Hunter Valley Gardens, see map here.
