Come with me! I’m taking you on a tour, a sweet and colourful one. Come visit one of the best lolly stores around: The Lolly Bug in Little Hartley. Grab your basket, drive over the Blue Mountains, if you’re coming from Sydney, and stop when you see the lovely yellow beetle.
Push the door and fall into a world of sugar!
It is funny to stand near the door and look at the face of every single newcomer! Wooooow!
You can even have a bite to eat and a sip a drink while your kids are running wild.
To make you feel good about buying packs of lollies, these guys display ginormous lollipops on the wall.
Not only they sell all these sweet things but for the “adult” audience, the also have a very interesting deli selection including: honey, sauces & condiments, jams, oils and vinegars.
It is so hard to choose… Léonore took a Cinderella-lolly-fan.
There was a vast collection of honey including flavoured ones such as chilli, cinnamon, lavender, ginger or banana!
I took one of each of those berry vinegars. Unlike the ones I used to buy in France, their berry flavour is actually very subtle.
I took one of each of those too. They were all absolutely delicious. The creamed one is really fantastic with home-made baguette and butter.
I couldn’t resist those flavoured honeys… I loved the lavender one.
I love their very traditional wooden display boxes.
And display “pigeon-hole” shelves.
The choice in here is spectacular.
And why not some pistachios…
I didn’t know most of the lollies displayed. They were from all around the world.
We had to buy the necklace lolly bag of course.
Of course, if you are into science, you can get astronauts.
Alex got those.
Very attractive packaging for the Zombie Chews…
I love those beautiful traditional lollies. I wouldn’t really eat them but gosh they do look good in a glass jar.
Oh, and the Rainbow love soft lollies were gorgeous.
Ok, someone has to explain to me how you can chew on these as they wouldn’t fit in an adult mouth…
More shelving… the chocolate section.
These used to be my absolute favourite lollies. We call them snow balls in French. They are soft toffee rolled in icing sugar and possibly starch. The best way to eat them is to keep them in your pocket for a few hours before attacking…
More vintage lollies.
Lollies by the bucket.
These were as big as my head and covered in hundreds and thousands.
The choc bar section with a lot of American specialities.
If you’re not the choosing type, just by the Lolly Bug selection.
And don’t miss the Rocky Road and nougat section.
