A sugary historyWe have been making handmade candy since the forty's!
A long long time ago..
Way back in the forty’s, a little boy lived close to a giant Candy Factory every day he passed the large gates and picked up the smell of the clove rock, brandy balls & chocolate macaroon. This little boy was my uncle Willy (Willy Dunne) and this was when he decided he wanted to make sweets.
Uncle Willy became a master candy maker in that very factory and all was good until he had an accident, losing three fingers! Uncle Willy never returned and decided to open his own shop in Belfast’s Albert Bridge road. He then opened a second in Templemore Avenue, Belfast. Everything went well but he needed help.

Aunt Sandra (1953)
Yes she does exist! Sandra worked with Willy for over 30 years serving the customers & dealing with the orders while Willy made the products. As time went on, Willy got older and Sandra started making the products. Willy finally retired and the shop closed.
