Berry's Olde Traditional Sweet Shoppe


Tucked down in the far corner of the basement of the indoor market within Clarendon Shopping Centre is Berry's.

They stock all the traditonal sweets like Uncle Joe's Mintballs, Pontefract Cakes, Humbugs and hundreds more dispensed from their own jars. OK so they sell you 100gm these days rather than a quarter-pound, but they taste just as delicious.

It's like the Tante Emma Laden (Aunt's Emma Shops in Germany). There are old shops to buy food.

I love this. I just read in the newspaper about Raj Patel's book "Stuffed and Starved", about the overwhelming force of supermarkets with their convenience and abundance of fat, sugar and artificial additives. This shop stems from a time in which a candy was still a special treat, a little taste jewel, to spend your last dime to. I also like the neat-and-tidyness very much, how different from the screaming colors urging you to buy "something new"! (I came here via aminus3)

To be fair to the new owners the shop looks fairly similar.
