Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe

You step back in time as you enter Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe on Uxbridge's busy high street. I was tempted in by the colourful window display and it brought back childhood memories of a traditional sweet shop brimming with colourful choices.

The sweet shop takes on a Victorian style with quite an astounding array of every possible sweet on offer.

Jars of sweets line the back shelves

Lining the back shelves are row upon row of very traditional sweets. Boiled sweets in a rainbow of colours, toffees, fudges, sherbet, marshmallows and more. I defaulted to my childhood favourite of strawberry bons bons.

Just as I remember from my early days, the sweets are measured out from their large jars and poured into a crisp paper bag.

Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe also has an extensive range of pick and mix sweets. The front counter has little trays with every pick and mix sweet treat you could think of and then some more. I would have struggled to remember them all until I saw them laid out.

What's your favourite pick and mix?

If you're looking for more of a gift than a quick treat for yourself, you could select one of their beautifully presented glass jars. They also have displays of seasonal items and anything else you could think of to tempt you. Willy Wonka would be proud of this sweet shop.
