Hello and welcome to Ye Little Olde Sweet Shoppe!
We are situated in a lovely traditional English town called Pocklington, which is just off the A1079 York to Hull road. Our shop may look small, but do not let that fool you. We have a wide range of weigh-out sweets, from old favourites like the ones you haven't seen since you were a child, to popular everyday treats. We also have a wide range of sugar-free sweets, so everyone can join in the fun. For those of you who are looking for something just that little bit different, we have a large selection of liquorice, including some unusual flavours.
My husband and I took over the shop in April 2011, and we have worked hard to unify the shop and update its ranges to offer you the biggest selection we can at a reasonable cost to you. We both feel it is important to support our local community and are always happy see what we can do to help out local events and charity functions. Our hope for our business is to bring you a smile and a reminder that sweets are there for the enjoyment of all.
If you have a sweet dilemma or you are not sure if what you want is possible, please come in and see us or contact us via the website. We like a challenge and we will most certainly try our hardest to help you.
We can also make you up your very own sweet buffet, to make that special event just that little more remarkable. Sweets can be colour-coded to match your event or you can just pick all your favourites. We will come and set it up for you and collect the display equipment after the event, leaving you just to look after any sweets that may get left over. Delivery within a ten mile radius of the shop is free for buffets; an additional charge is added for events that are further away.
Want to give someone a nice treat but don't know what to put it in? No problem - we have a wide range of attractive jars and boxes that you can choose to fill with sweets. You can have them filled with just one thing or a selection of a little bit of what you fancy.
