Ever catch yourself chomping down on some sweets or chocolate and thinking "this isn't how it used to taste"?
Admit it - they just don't taste the way they used to, but at Hope and Greenwood they have revived traditional confectionery. Miss Hope and Mr Greenwood are in their kitchen, Sugar HQ (that sounds like a kitchen I would like to visit) bubbling, straining, squeezing, shaping and crafting lovingly made collections. Since opening one shop in Dulwich in 2004, they have won Best Original Shop and Great Taste Awards, their products in John Lewis and Selfridges, opened a second UK store and 12 stores in Japan. They describe themselves as "Purveyors of Splendid Goods" and we can certainly back this up!
Are you ready for the delicious list of candy we have on offer from them?
