“If you have small children this is a must..”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We really enjoyed our trip here. The show that was put on for the kids was excellent. The owners have prefected their skills and from start to finish kept both the kids and adults attention (beware) if you not paying attention they will notice and ask your name and repeat or ask question during the show (real runny) you get to see how some of the sweets made and kids get the chane to win some lollypops made during he show. One prize per family and each family get bag of sweets to take home as well. All kids get chance to make candy floss. Very enjoyable visit

“Absolutely brilliant dose of family owned heavenly sweetie (candy) shop”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Kids (and us parents) loved this. Went for the tour of the admittedly cosy (read small) premises but this was part of the appeal. In this day of huge corporate factory machine made products pretending to be made by a granny or some other cuddly character this was a breath of fresh air.

The storytelling and demonstration of sweet making was excellent and of course you get to sample them at the end. Normally commercially made sweet products do not agree with my body (probably due to a plethora of additives and preservatives) but on this occasion I was able to eat the sweets made in front of me with no adverse effects.

It was a great value day out which was different and genuinely enjoyable, uncle Jim was great craic and engaged well with children and adults. Would definitely recommend this.

“A Midget Gem in East Belfast”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

A fantastic afternoon out. Aunt Sandras is a delight to the eyes and nose as soon as you walk in. Like stepping back in time, this is the sort of place you read about in children's books. The show was great, very personal and great fun. I highly recommend a trip to Aunt Sandras!
