About
Blackpool's newest sweet shop and largest selection of loose pick n mix sweets in the area. Thinks Woolworths Pick n Mix and then think MUCH BIGGER! Also stocks a huge range of kids sweets from 1p upwards as well as a huge range of lollipops and kids' novelty sweets. You'll find just about every kind of sweet you could want in this sweetie wonderland! The shop is located on Waterloo Road not far from Blackpool Pleasure Beach - head from South Pier/pleasure Beach back towards Central Pier and you can't miss Waterloo Road. OPEN 7 DAYS TILL LATE.

Disgusting PORN style sweets displayed on lowest shelf
Sep 2013 • Family
The shop its self caters for every sweet-toothed person alive HOWEVER even after 2 requests to relocate the PENIS shaped rock from the lowest shelf closest to the entrance to another less obvious place in the shop , the store owner refused to accept it is inappropriate for small children to have access to this kind of confectionery.
His argument was every other shop in Blackpool has it , as a resident of some years and with 3 small children of my own I beg to differ. Most shop owners have some ethical values which sadly escape this 'gentleman' . Perhaps Seafront rock stalls have little alternative space but as this shop boasts over 400 types of sweets this would not be an issue here and I think general ignorance and pigheadedness is a fault the owner displays along with his terrible choice of product placement.

I would like to thank you for your visits to Sweetly Special and for your comments regarding it At Sweetly Special we pride ourselves in providing as wide a choice of sweets and confectionery in order to provide the widest possible choice at vakue for money prices for all age groups, tastes and sections of the community. As such we stock 400 varieties of loose Pick n Mix sweets and many thousands of sweets in total. We have been visited by many thousands of happy customers since we opened our doors in June and have had no complaints about the range of products stocked other than from yourself. As was explained to you during your most recent visit to Sweetly Special, the placement of the product in question was reviewed after your wife's initial complaint but no other suitable place in the shop could be identified for it and it is specifically stocked due to customer demand. Whilst youfind the position on the bottom shelf to be unsuitable I would suggest that this in the circumstances is the most appropriate position for it. The rock section (of which the article in question is part) is as you know located on a low gondola in the central isle of the shop. Were the article in question to be placed on a higher shelf it would be much more visible to children than it is at presenttucked away on a bottom shelf. I would also point out that were it a "Porn Style"item as you claim then the authorities would restrict sales of it to lisenced adult shops and we would not therefore be able to stock it. As explained to you during your last visit, I fully respect your decision not to bring your children into the shop whilst the item in question is held in stock which is only during the tourist season. However, I would suggest that since you and your wife always seem to tightly control the movements of your children (something to be admired in this day and age) the easiest way to deal with this situation is simply to avoid taking your children along the central aisle of the shop and instead keep them to the other two aisles. Thankyou again for visiting Sweetly Special and for taking the time to review our store.
