Mark from 'The Sweet Shop' always delivers great customer service and has a wide base of knowledge not just about sweets but also a multitude of other things. Mark is a bit like the traditional family doctor from the good old days, who has a chat and looks after his customers and the sweets are also 'old school' but great value for money.
I ordered 3 lots of "old school sweets" for Christmas presents. When I collect them I was over the moon. They came beautifully presented in large bowls all tied up in bows and ribbons. I would highly recommend you give this shop a try.

I attended an event this week where Mark had brought along samples of type of gifts he could put together. If you know a sweet fan this would make a lovely different gift. The gifts can be made up to suit budget and cater for allergies. Mark is enthusiastic and helpful so if you are stuck for ideas, pop in and see him!
I have been to the sweet shop on lots of occassions however, I was particularly impressed with my last order.
I ordered a sweet gift basket for my sister's Christmas gift. As she has an allergy to strawberries and strawberry flavouring, I asked Mark if he could create a strawberry free hamper. He did so!
It was fantastic, the hamper still contained the popular and retro sweets but in alternative flavours! My sister was over the moon as it's a tricky flavour to avoid when buying sweets!
The hamper presentation was also fab! Lovely gift bow and cellophane wrapped! It really made her smile!
I've used the sweet shop a number of times over the last two years to get some gifts either for birthdays, Christmas presents or just thank you presents. Mark is brilliant not only does he give you a warm welcome when you enter the shop but you can tell that he has a fantastic knowledge and really cares about his products. not only that but he stocks sweets for vegetarians and people who cant eat gluten. On two occasions he has prepared me special sweet hampers for people who are vegetarian which is fantastic. His special gift baskets, hampers and retro 80's tubs are brilliant and thats why they get 5 stars from us.
Always a great atmosphere every time I walk into the shop, I always get greeted with the same caring, happy face that always brings a smile to my face, regardless of my current state of mind. So good, I always try to encourage friends to visit also, and hope they return and get the memories I do when looking at the wide range of sweets you couldn't get otherwise. Thank you for all your custom Mark, and I shall see you again soon.
My mom sends me sweets from there all the time as I live in North Carolina. My family and I were visiting England just recently and had so much fun talking to Mark - my husband loved the shop and loved that he got to sample some of the sweetsYUM YUM
I love this shop, the choice is great and Mark (The Willy Wonka of Walsall) is always so friendly and helpful. The baskets I got for friends and family for Christmas were superb and very reasonably priced too.
I was delighted with our wedding favours and gifts from the Sweet Shop.
We had individual tubs of sweets on each table and they went down a treat! We also gave out sweets as gifts to our bridesmaids, best man and ushers.
Nothing was too much trouble for Mark, who placed personalised labels on each tub. They looked good, tasted great and were very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend.
Hi - thank you for the excellent service today. It was lovely to visit your shop and Mum and I had the hardest choice in deciding what sweets to buy. In the end opted for shrimps, jelly eggs, strawberry sherbets, pick and mix and brazil nuts. I tried one of everything and they were lovely.

This is defiantly the best sweet shop I have ever been to, the staff are friendly and the sweets are amazing, there is every sweet that you can think of, old retro ones to new ones.
