The stuff of (sweet) dreams

I think it's time to introduce you to one of my favourite shops in London....

and with good reason, as, if you are like me, and have an uncontrollable sweet tooth, you need to know about this place. So let me tell you about Cybercandy.

Okay, imagine a place where you can buy not just sweets from all over the UK, not even all over Europe - but literally sourced from all over the World - well, you'd only think it existed in Willy Wonka films. Well, I can tell you it is possible to find such a place, and not actually very far from Leicester Square or Covent Garden tubes either.

Stepping inside is like entering an Aladdin's Den of confectionery. The walls are piled high with all manner of coloured objects, shiny wrappers, and of course chocolate bars - all enticing you to buy, buy, buy.

The last time I went, there was even a giant Gobstopper dispenser - big enough to hold a person inside (you see I wasn't off with the Wonka references!). It is possible to buy according to country as well as by taste. Some of my current favourites are Japanese Ramune soda (which opens by popping a marble into a chamber in the bottle - so cool!), and Swedish Fish sweets - though with so many options, I'm sure you'll find your own favourites.

With 6 stores to choose from, including more in London and one in Brighton - you have no excuse to starve your sweet tooth - go on, you know you want to ...
