Love this shop. Bought 4 pre made sweet hampers before Christmas great value and loved by kids big and small. Staff are very helpfully and there are even sweets for people with food intolerance, which is great for my awkward lot.

Hi we stock a wide range of sugar free sweets. We have aniseed twists, I'm not 100% sure what you mean by candy twist? Are you referring to coff candy twist or just hard boiled twists in general? Thanks John
