When we visit family in Melbourne, we always stop here. The candy-making demonstration is interesting. The candy itself is delicious. Friends back home enjoy the candies with "Melbourne" inside!

Loved watching them make the candy in the front window of the shop. I was just mesmerised by what they did. After they finished had to go in and buy 2 small lollipops for my grand children and also some cashew brittle for myself. They had lots of tiny jars of small lollies like we used to get at Darrell...

It's cool to see how they made their candies by hand.. However.. The taste of the candies are not that special.. I would not recommend people to buy a lot of their candies if you're looking forward to the taste of their candies.

Stopped by the Royal Arcade to see some candy making. The guys making the candy were very friendly and gave out free samples. The candy is a bit expensive. I think the smallest bag was around $6-7.

We went in this shop as part of our private walking tour. It's a small shop that makes candies right infront of you. Not only that, they can draw a tiny picture and write stuff (including your name) on the candies too. The staff was very friendly and accepted us in. We kept asking them questions about the candies and... More

This is a lovely little discovery a very small shop called Suga Confectionery in the Royal Arcade. It draws a crowd when the candy makers start to do their thing, they are masters and its really quite amazing what can be done with some sugar, water and glucose. They demonstrate how they put the lettering into the candy so their... More

Tiny Suga Confectionery in Royal Arcade draws a crowd when the candy makers don their work gloves and wrestle great slabs of hard candy into their trademark cut candy gems. We were fascinated by the process and completely hooked when they offered free samples oh the still warm candy we had just witnessed being made. Worth a trip!
