The absolute best old time sweet shop in Dorset! Jeanette and her team were so helpful even with a full shop of customers, there attention is on your needs and requirement. For a bloke like me to get a gift for his wife who just says ‘dunno what my wife likes, think she likes liquorice’ Jeanette provided me with different options and new treats for my wife to try within her gift hamper.

I can now say I am in my wife’s good book!
Can not fault the shop, the staff or the location.

Will continue to have my custom for years to come and more.

Thank you so much!

Searching for Dorset Knobs , as my previous supplier was not taking orders. I found TS not only had stock, which is a difficulty but they could supply and deliver.
The charge for both the items and delivery charges were very reasonable.
Within days I have been able to enjoy my Dorset Knobs in perfect condition and so I am delighted that I found this supplier and hope they are a success in these difficult times for traders

We're local, and regulars at Truly Scrumptious. We love popping in here to pick up some sweet treats. We're always so spoilt for choice, so it takes us a few minutes to decide, but Jeanette and her team never mind.

We highly recommend her homemade fudge. It's delicious and freshly made, and always a choice of lots of flavours.

The luxury chocolates she sells have made lovely gifts for family and friends. And Jeanette can package them up so they look even more special.

From old fashioned sweets, like Pontefract cakes; to childhood favourites, like cola cubes; and new sweets, like millions. You'll be spoilt for choice.

A visit to Poole Quay isn't complete, without popping into Truly Scrumptious!

The humbugs that I bought from truly scrumptious online "the pink sugar mouse" were not what I expected and they dont even look like their picture on the website. I thought I was buying old fashioned round english humbugs with chewy centres, and they are mint flavour hard boiled sweets. The buttermint humbugs also dont resemble their picture, but at least they are described as hard boiled. . How difficult is it to update the picture of the product when you change supplier ? The mixed toffees all taste the same. Dont waste your money, these are not very nice sweets.

Two very excited nieces were extremely happy with their sweets. Fabulous customer service and such an amazing choice of delicious sweets. I’ve already been told that we MUST go again next time the girls come to visit, but next time apparently I need to buy them even more! Thank you so much for taking the time to allow them to select what they wanted.

Have been visiting this shop since I was a child for nearly 15 years! It is always a pleasure and often we travel to Poole (from Salisbury) just to visit the shop itself. There is something so nostalgic about the shop and the staff have always been nothing but friendly and passionate about the job. Can’t wait to visit again tomorrow!

This shop really is full of Truly Scrumptious traditional sweets. We went in for a few grams of licorice and came out with dolly mixtures, jelly beans and lots more. The lady was very helpful letting me sample the licorice, so many to choose from. I wish Ihad bought more as they were gone in a flash so I ordered extra online and received them quickly. Highly recommend if you have a sweet tooth.
