Traditional Sweetshop in Bungay, Suffolk

We are a traditional sweetshop, based in Earsham Street in the Waveney market town of Bungay on the border between Norfolk and Suffolk. Located in a Medieval building - once the home of Percy Trott “The Demon Barber” - the shop still retains its old ceiling-beams made from ships' timbers.

Our sweets rekindle childhood memories and introduce the younger generation to the delights of the likes of Sherbet Lemons, Aniseed Balls, Flying Saucers and the many other traditional sweets sold from the 100 to 150 jars we currently stock. We can weigh you 100 grammes or, for the traditionalist, a quarter (although we have to call it 114 grammes!), and we even cater for people with special dietary requirements.

Although we are steeped in history here at 'A Sweet For You', we also pay heed to the present-so we stock a good choice of Pez.

And to wash it all down, cans and bottles of soft drinks.

Looking for a treat or gift for a special occasion? Look no further than 'A Sweet For You', we sell sweets and chocolates for wedding favours, party bags, wedding tables; in fact nearly any event you can think of. What's more, we are able to personalise them to your own requirements.

At 'A Sweet for You' we don’t just stock sweets and ice creams though - we have lots of other great things to tempt you - we have a good range of greetings cards. We also stock puppets from The Puppet Company - they come in all shapes and sizes and include finger puppets, glove puppets and full-body puppets – so there’s something suitable for all ages.

Additionally we have assembled a carefully chosen group of high quality toys-including Fairtrade wooden toys from Lanka Kade, Train sets and wooden toys made by Bigjig, junior gardening sets.

Close to the market towns of Harleston, Beccles and Halesworth, why not use a visit to 'A Sweet For You' as an opportunity to visit Bungay itself.

Few towns can rival the charm of Bungay with its fine Georgian architecture; a walk in the town will expose many of its hidden treasures. It has many individual and specialist shops, some of which have been established for generations. There is also a wealth of antique and craft shops in which you can browse. Bungay is lucky to have many fine restaurants, coffee shops, cafés and ancient Inns – some of them amongst the most haunted in England!. When in Bungay don't miss a visit to Earsham Street Café.

“On the way to school and on the way back we always passed the sweet-shop. No we didn't, we never passed it. We always stopped …to us it was what a church is to a bishop. Without it there would have been very little to live for.” — Roald Dahl, “Boy”
