... it's a complete retro experience. You'll find retro gifts and funky greetings cards and the service from Ana and Ian is spot on; made to order, unique and personalised hampers, gift bags and favours. The ice cream's not bad either.

Rop Pop Candy is a wonderful well ranged sweet shop with something for everyone, I have made a point of visiting to get my monthly load of sweets, and when I can't, simply order online. Sweets are well priced and a really nice thing is the amount of imported american sweets; a personal favorite being Swedish Fish which I can recommend! The Owners are very nice, patient and will get you exactly what you have a craving for.

If you're after something a little different for a birthday party you must choose Rock Pop Candy.

My 10 year old and 7 of her friends spent a couple of hours making a selection of delicious sweetie treats, finishing off with a customised ice cream sundae. Each child received a named party bag containing their creations. So the whole party is sorted, parents don't need to supervise and everyone is happy!

The owners are lovely and do everything they can to assist; a vegetarian and coeliac child were both catered for. Do book well in advance though and be aware there is a minimum age limit of 10 years.

The shop itself is brimming with delicious sweets and has a splendidly nostalgic atmosphere. There is nothing not to love about this place!

Wow what a treasure! A beautiful sweet shop with the most amazing selection of sweets, candy and more from around the world and from years gone by. Childhood favorites and lollies from home, wherever that may be. They even have Kiwi stuff!!! Pineapple lumps, L&P, chocolate fish. Now I can get my fix whether from my original home in the UK or my new home in NZ. Thanks guys, great place.

Rock Pop Candy is a great independent sweet shop just a minutes walk from the centre of St Albans. They have a large selection of old fashioned sweets and some brilliant gift ideas. I especially like the retro sweet jars that they make up which make great presents for all ages. The staff are really friendly and we always find some new sweets to try. Definitely worth a visit.

Rock Pop Candy is a haven of sweetie happiness, like stepping back in time to when I got sweets on the way home from school. But this is even better as it isn't anything like a gloomy corner shop with a dusty jars and penny sweets by the til . Rock Pop Candy is bright, beautiful and packed with an amazing array of goodies to eat in or take home. Not only that, there are also unique retro gifts and there is a party space for those that are looking for an exciting alternative to the usual pizza/cinema combo for older kids. Might give it a go for my next birthday, I may be knocking on 42 but the owners Ana and Ian would be totally fine with that! They are a lovely couple whom would go to any lengths to make their customers happy, be it designing the perfect wedding favors or finding a vintage treat from way back when. They will also do their best to source products from abroad for those missing a taste of home. I live in North Hertfordshire but would happily drive to St Albans just to visit Rock Pop Candy, Give it a go, you won't be disappointed!
