“The sweet shop smell is out of this world”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Something sweet has been in the town for a few years now. It relocated itself from one side of bridge gate to the other and to the benefit of the proprietor. Now able to make fudge on its premises, not seen it yet but i was told about it.

So many childhood memories sitting in jars on the shelves transport you back to the 60's, well for me! Very helpful for advice on cough candy and menthol sweets. If in doubts they will happily select a mixture. They are such a lovely team and such a happy little shop

“Just like the sweetshop of your childhood dreams”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

I shop here far more than I should. I buy adult chocolate bars like Green and Blacks dark chocolate with burnt toffee as presents, I buy wine gums to snack on at work and I can buy sweet bracelets for my nephews daughter. The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly regardless of whether you are a grown up buying a large chocolate bar or a small child trying to decide what to have in your mixed sweetie bag. Bit confused by the description of this shop being by the canal though. They are in fact right in the centre of town. Drop in and buy something yummy.

“Cute shop by the canal”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

An excellent selection of old time sweets by the canal - just don't go when the schools have just closed for the day. Very friendly staff.

“a sweetie heaven”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Traditional sweets in a lovely 'traditional' sweet shop. Helpful and amusing staff. I loved the wide range of treats available and seeing sweeties from my childhood made me excited!
Remember to take your pocket money - you are gonna want to buy a bit of everything!

“Candy for all the senses”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

No ordinary sweet shop! Your senses are given a real treat. At something sweet there is something for everyone regardless of your age and tastes! The owners are real gems too. It's an experience you just got to try. Hebden bridge wouldn't be the same without it.
