Located about halfway along the main street is Port Fairy Confectionery. If this isn’t one of your must do things while you visit the town you must have somehow missed it on your last trip. The huge selection of confectionery is both captivating and addictive. You will go back.
It has the look you expect a lolly shop to have with every wall loaded up with products of every description including those hard to get ones from your childhood. I have a relative that misses English Toffee from when he was a child. Fortunately I managed to find it here and in four different varieties. He was very, very happy when I gave it to him but still don’t think I have made it into the will. Perhaps the licorice next time?
It is not a huge shop so it can get crowded perusing the sweet filled shelves but nothing will deter me from my adventure in confectionery delights. The staff are very helpful and seem to have tried every product in the store as their knowledge seems to come from experience.
On a recent visit I witnessed a lady purchasing licorice sticks that she couldn’t find anywhere else. Here excitement was palpable and you see the happiness on her face. I almost expected her to call the licorice “my precious”, drop into her pocket and vanish before our eyes.
This is a fun place where you can spend time finding treats you never knew existed or resurface long forgotten memories of treats from many years ago. We all need a treat and I believe we all need a lot more fun. After you have chosen your delights there is no need to rush off as you can have a coffee or more appropriately a Hot Chocolate before you leave at the back of the shop.
