Candy Shop Windows for Dawn’s Challenge

Every Thursday, Dawn has her ‘Lingering Windows Challenge’.  This week, I have two very sweet photos for you. The first was taken in Savannah, Georgia. This amazing candy store is housed in one of the waterfront’s old cotton warehouses, and manufactures the best fudge you’ve ever tasted. The wonderful aroma of warm fudge assails your nostrils as you walk up the street, and it’s just a natural reaction, to step inside instead of walking past. Once you’ve succumbed to temptation, there’s no hope for your waistline.

Mr Simm’s Olde Sweet Shoppe in Horsham,England, is based on a pre-war style sweet emporium. With over 1,500 different types of tempting sweets and chocolates, and has often been compared to Willy Wonka’s. On the shelves, there are hundreds of jars of old fashioned sweets, such as sherbet lemons, pear drops, dolly mixtures, wine gums, licorice allsorts, and my own personal favourite, rainbow chocolate drops, which are weighed out and put in a paper bag, just like in the ‘olden days’. As a child, I must have eaten a barrow load of those chocolate drops covered in colourful  ‘hundreds and thousands. My Saturday sixpence pocket money always ended up in Mr Clarke’s cash register drawer. How many of you had a similar addiction?
