The British Lolly Shop - need I say more? Yes this shop sells imported lolly treats, and they also sell some (if not an abundance) of amazing imported chocolate delights. This place is so conveniently located in Sydney's Darling Harbour - inside the Harbourside complex. Alas, another favourite destination along the Thursday night twilight chocolate walking tour. The guests on this tour have always made purchases here, and with Sandra handing out some amazing samples for them to try - the questions come asking on tap.
Some other imported treats
It is easy to lose yourself here. Just be prepared for that wallet to leave this establishment a little emptier. For those of you who did not grow up in Sydney, or even in Australia for that matter - just a word of warning: homesick. For the mother country that is.
Both the English and Irish treats do this to yours truly. Oh my goodness, the Irish Milk Chocolate Coffee Beans (also available in Dark Chocolate) are just so heavenly. The coffee bean has the right amount of coffee hits without being too overpowering. The chocolate is divine.
Some USA delights at a glimpse too
I also love their Dark Chocolate Ginger treats. The latter is not for everyone. Surprisingly, the dark chocolate has been tempered beautifully; however it is the ginger hit inside that is phenomenal. The latter is so like tucking into a real ginger. Good to know this now, and that way you're prepared for when that ginger hit strikes.
Choices in abundance
Their toffee treats are also amazing, and I also love their Milk Chocolate Raspberries. Tuck into some delicious chocolate, and a fresh raspberry lolly reigns inside the chocolate parade.
Getting a wee homesick at this time
So sweet and so colourful. Sandra also provides excellent customer service. She is an asset to this business due to her wonderful persona.

You can find Quality Street chocolate bars, as well as Babe Ruth chocolate bars. Turkish Delight also comes in a smaller pack. Gees, I am homesick again. Sugar over in many parts of Europe is not as sweet and sugary as chocolate is in Australia.
Cannot really buy these anywhere else in Sydney. So cute.
I'll be back with or without hosting another twilight chocolate walking tour with this great establishment of candy paradise in play paradise. A winning combo.
