Sugar Boy

We say

Nostalgia for adults, ecstasy for kids, Sugar Boy is a traditional sweet shop selling traditional sweets in the traditional way – by the quarter (or 100g) from the jar. There are hundreds of jars stacked high on shelves all around the walls, from humbugs and acid drops to fudge and kids’ favourites like millions and cola bottles, all at around £1 per 100g. Jamie Oliver once called this place "the best sweet shop in the world", though ultimately it is much like all sweet shops, simply stacked high with a wonderfully wide selection and seeming to groan beneath the weight. If you've got a sweet tooth we'll say no more, just off harbour street this is the place for you.
