I Love Candy is situated on Edinburgh’s Hanover Street and is easy to spot amongst the neighbouring shops. They regularly change their window display to reflect the season and suggest new sweet items to buy.
The shop is quite small but certainly takes you back to old fashioned sweetie heaven. They sell Chelsea Whoppers, Wham bars and other childhood retro favourites – certainly something for everyone.
I Love Candy also has a very small tea/coffee bar in the shop where you can munch on one of Lizzie’s Tea Party cupcakes, which are delicious. You can also quench your thirst with a Slurpie.
It’s my opinion that they don’t make sweets like they used to which is why this place is so great as they stock sweets that will evoke memories from younger years.
Suitable for disabled? There are a set of steps to get into the shop, so not suitable for wheelchair users and not practical with customers wanting to shop inside with buggies.
