Trick or Sweet Treats?

Trick or Sweet Treats? 2000 1335 The Editor

There are plenty of treats, as well as a few tricks, this Halloween, so we’ve taken the hard work out of finding five of the best sweet shops the Island has to offer…

Sweet Memories, Arreton Barns

Home of some of the most sensational handmade fudge on the Island. With seasonal flavours as well as regular favourites, buy a box of four slabs and indulge! Explore the treasure trove of lollipops, chocolates, pocket money sweets and traditional jars of sweets.

Chocolate Island, Godshill

A chocoholics paradise! The shelves are filled with bags of handcrafted chocolate, like a scene from Willy Wonka. From hollow creatures to luxury filled boxes, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Got a few moments to spare? Pay a visit to the chocolate cafe… the tapas is a must!

The Rock Shop, Shanklin

No visit to the seaside is complete without a stick of rock, no matter the weather or time of year. A shop dedicated to this family favourite, there are varieties and flavours you could only imagine, get choosing!  

The Kandy Box, Ryde

This quintessential, traditional sweet shop has shelves covered with jars, filled with favourites such as rhubarb and custard, sherbert lemons, kola cubes. They even serve them up in old school paper bags! You’ll be so spoiled for choice you won’t just want one bag.

Isle of Wight Sweet Manufactory, The Needles Landmark Attraction

Traditional, artisanal boiled sweets are the order of the day here. Kids and adults alike will watch in awe as you see the sweets being made right in front of your eyes. You can then visit the shop and take home some of the delights including famous Isle of Wight mints.
