Sells exceptional toffees both hard and soft - love the licorice and rooibos tea - the price is good as I tried to buy more at the airport at a later stage - it is nice to watch the production of the sweets as well - well worth a visit.

Loved the staff and array of sweet treats. We tasted the ginger and cardamom and classic and of course bought more to take home.

If you have a sweet tooth (and 0 wobbly or problem teeth) and love toffees then this is the spot for you!!!. From Licorice to Chilli to Mint to Coffee flavoured toffees, theres a toffee for you. You can watch the very talented staff, skillfully and with speed wrap each individual toffee while browsing and tasting. There are tasters so that you can make the best choice, lovely gift boxes for sale too. Worth a visit!

Oh my word. Just as you think you've found the best toffee/caramel, the next one you unwrap, creates a flavour burst in your mouth. So much to choose from, so little time. World peace will prevail if it was filled with the Darling toffees and caramels

Just walk in there and have a taste. You are more or less guaranteed to be hooked. I love the soft caramels, but all are good, and the packaging is my favorite

I cannot tell you just how sad I am...I live in Canada and I bought several packages of the caramels/toffee and gave some as gifts and mine are all gone now and I should have kept them all for myself. LOL They are absolutely delicious and I can't get anymore as they do not ship outside of South Africa! Next time someone that I know is going (Oct 2020), I will tell them that they have to bring me back some... A LOT of them! :)

On our way back from Shelley Point Hotel and spa, we decided to stop in Darling and pop in at Darling Sweets! What a nice experience - the nice elderly lady working there, made us shop more than what we planned on spending!! So interesting and you can taste all of their delicious flavours! She also referred us to the Darling Vleismark and the Udderly delicious cheese shop!

After a week-long seaside break in Paternoster, we decided to stop in Darling before heading back to Cape Town and what a delightful treat that was! Of course, we had to stop a Darling Sweet (which was a first for me) because its all I've ever been told, "when in Darling, go to the toffee factory". You are greeted by a very sweet warm-hearted lady who shared the history of the shop in 10min which is accommodated by tonnes of delicious toffee testers. With a sweet ending to my mid-year break, I walked away smiling & with LOTS of toffee:-)

Large selection of soft and chewy sweets and toffees. The usual flavours are available, but also some lovely surprises. Viewing window through which one can watch the sweet-making process. Bonus: individually wrapped morsels to taste test all the sweets!
