Truly Scrumptious is truly one of the best sweet shops I've been in. Very traditional with a huge selection of sweets, fudge and ice-cream. Very hard to resist. Good thing it's near to the harbour so you can walk off the calories!

Crammed with sweets from yesteryear. Everywhere you look, you find something amazing and appetising. The ice cream selection is pretty awesome too. Definitely worth seeking out if you’re in town.

Great shop, we loved choosing all the sweets that reminded us of our childhoods. The home made fudge was amazing. It's a shame there isn't one of these shops in every town. Will return again if we are ever in Poole.

Children had their eyes on this shop. Visited in the morning for a bag of sweets each. Hundreds of sweets sold by weight. Enjoyed visit so much, had to go back that evening. Also homemade fudge, unusual flavours of soft drinks and Belgian chocolates.

Visited on the last day of our holiday to get some gifts for family members. There is a sizeable selection of confectionery to choose from, and some other pre-boxed sweet gifts. The staff were welcoming, friendly and happy to help. Will definitely return in future.
