I am partial to sweets (especially chocolate), it is something that I have had from a very young age. I lived next door to a sweet shop for my first seven years when as a family we lived in Stow on the Wold in the Cotswolds. I therefore consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur when it comes to sweet shops – and it makes me happy when I find a really good one!
I discovered an amazing one in Oxford this week – Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe – (and yes the spelling for the tourists annoys me as well). This has the biggest collection of sweets from all eras I have ever seen. The staff clam it has the best selection in the UK and I believe them!
Quite a wonderful shop – well worth a visit – you will find some sweets from your childhood!
