A new sweet shop is set to open its doors in Rubery this month. And star of reality TV show The Only Way is Essex Bobby-Cole Norris will be at the big opening event!
The new store, Delightfully Sweet, will sell retro, traditional and imported sweets. There will be over 200 traditional sweetie jars in stock.
Co-owner Lucy said: “We reached our selection after putting this to our Facebook page, asking people what they would like to see stocked from their childhood. We had people requesting Choc Lick, Foiled Icy Cups, flying saucers, teacakes & many many more nostalgic varieties! Its been really fun sourcing everything to make sure our customers are happy.
“We will be selling all of the old fashioned favourites plus imports from America, like the Wonka range, Lucky Charms, Peanut M&Ms etc and also American drinks such as Vanilla Coca Cola, Grape Fanta & Cherry Dr Pepper.” Lucy added.
As well as selling sweets over the counter, Delightfully Sweet will offer Sweetie Buffets for special events such as weddings and birthdays, personalised children’s party bags and wedding favours, and Sweet Trees.
