Candy from around the world in Bo-Kaap

Cereal and candy from from the UK, America and Turkey at the Sweet Spot

Last updated: Tuesday, 12 July 2022

This new candy store’s range is as broad as the Bo-kaap’s streets are bright. The Sweet Shop stocks treats from the UK, America, Turkey and Mexico. Fill up with Reese’s cups, Hershey’s bars, Sour Patch Kids, Jolly Ranchers and loads of crazy candy flavours. Our South African favourites like Lays are well represented, too, and there are often great deals.

BUY SWEETS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

At The Sweet Spot, which has an interior just as colorful as the iconic Cape Malay houses in the area, candy boxes, chip packets and cooldrink tins fill the shelves and tables with an explosion of colours (and some crazy flavours) from America, Turkey, UK and Mexico.

FEEL LIKE A KID IN A CANDY STORE 

Grab a paper bag and fill it with as much candy as you’d like, there’s plenty to go around. Can’t decide which Hershey’s bar to try first? Why not try all the flavours, from “sprinkles and creme” to “cookies ‘n chocolate” or opt for a more spicy snack like curry Samyang Ramen. Take home a box of Reese’s Cup cereal or Sour Patch Kids and a cherry cola.

They have 10 different varities of Reeses, but you’ll also discover some snacks all the way from Mexico like Tajin (a spicey blend) or Chamoy (a cordial mix of sweet, sour and spicy). Plus, some South African favourites like Lays, but with new flavours like West Indies Hot ‘n Spicey or Chile Lemon.
