Whatever your age, a wall lined with tubs of colourful candies is sure to excite. It takes many back to simpler times, where you’d run to the local sweet shop at the end of a school week and buy yourself a paper bag of goodies with your pocket money.
Mr Simms is the UK’s no.1 traditional sweet shop, with 100 stores nationwide. Despite being a chain, each store welcomes you with a homely, local feel. You’ll find all your favourites, plus some more current creations that we have come to love.
Strawberry bonbons, white mice, liquorice wheels, cornflour covered milk bottles, vanilla fudge, cola cubes and black jacks are only a fraction of the extensive pick-and-mix tubs.
Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shop also make their own chocolate slabs, with retro flavours such as rhubarb and custard, bubblegum, coca cola and mint choc chip.
A colour-wheel of Jelly Bean flavours takes up a most of one wall in the Manchester shop.
New to Mr Simms: ‘Retrocorn’ flavoured popcorn. inspired by classic sweets. Chose between rhubard and custard, lime sherbert, pear drops or strawberries and cream, the pick out your favourite childhood movie and settle in for a night of nostalgia.
Sweets are not only for children! There is always a reason for a little treat.
