CyberCandy as a brand itself has to be my favourite for Retro sweets and Imported candy. They seem to have everything you can think of!
I can Never go to Birmingham without popping in.. the stock at first, does seem quite expensive for what it is but it has been imported directly as most of the products are not available in this country otherwise.
The CyberCandy brand as launched in 1999 as a family-run business initially run from their own dining table! They have built up this business from scratch, all by themselves - no loans or anything involved! Which i think is very impressive. In late 2002 however they moved the business on and now - 12 years after the beginning of their venture, they have 6 shops located throughout the UK and 2 large warehouses.
They are located:
- London - Covent Garden, Islington, Camden Town East Yard and Shoreditch Boxpark
- Birmingham - Bull Street
- Brighton - Gardner Street
They import from countries all over the world including:
- New Zealand
- All parts of Europe
Their stock is extensive! They have stock that uses all sorts of characters from gaming icons such as Mario to cartoons like The Moomins!
If you are a fan of Retro Sweets or are just intrigued by the concept they are well worth a visit!
My favourite items include:
Cherry Dr Pepper
Moomin Lu Biscuits
3-Dees Mario gummy sweets
There are so many more things to explore and they give you an opportunity to try something new every time you visit! Although it's so easy to get carried away and spend!
