My Trip to The Best American / Old Sweet Shop. Sweet Love!

Mollies Sweet Shop In Welshpool.

I visited Welshpool last weekend for a friend’s Wedding. Her Wedding was amazing, she looked beautiful and I loved sharing their day with them. However, this post is not about their lovely Wedding.

The day after the Wedding, I found this amazing shop. I was so excited, overwhelmed and hungry! My senses were all heightened in this amazing shop. So, here I want to tell you all about it.

The shop was the biggest sweet shop I have ever been in, I spent nearly £20 in here!! Which is A LOT only on sweets, I did however spend some of it on gifts for my Gran and Mother in Law though.


These jars cost £4 and you fill them to the brim with whatever sweets you like from the shop. So, we really did fill them up. (Lovely gifts to say thank you).


These flavoured lollies were 5 for £1, so I bought 5 of these for myself and Hubby. The buttered popcorn ones just sounded amazing.


There was an amazing selection of flavoured fudge. I chose some snickers flavour and butter flavour. I had resist trying them all, as there was so much I wanted in this shop.


They had all kinds of American fizzy drinks, and something for everybody – even if you needed freefrom luxuries.

So many delicious choices here, if you live in or near Welshpool, how lucky are you?!


This shop would be like sweet heaven for children. They had a train filled with sweets traveling around the ceiling of the shop. The shop played lovely Disney songs throughout my visit.

This just made the visit all the sweeter, if that were even possible. 


Chocolate is my most favourite of foods. This selection was my complete indulgence. It was 3 bars for £5, bars with all different coatings on the. I choose these ones. They are amazing!!

my favs

Between my Husband and I, we bought:

A bag of chocolate covered popcorn.

3 bars of chocolate – salted caramel, coffee and chilli.

Chocolate Gingers.

A Thank You Jar.

Dr. Pepper Chews.

5 flavoured Lollies.

A bottle of Cherry Fizzy Drink.

Pecan shortbread.

Snickers Almond.

ButterNutter Bites. 

what i bought

What an incredible shop, that sells so many delicious sweets and choices. The shop s very far away from me, so I was rather indulgent. My friend has said that I can have Mollies goodies as part of my Christmas and Birthday gifts! Lucky me!!


Do you live in or near Welshpool? Have you been to Mollies before?

I would love to hear from you and your thoughts on Mollies and sweets.

Thanks for reading.

    WOW! If we ever get round to the family trip to Shrewsbury we might just have to “nip” over to Welshpool now! Those big tubs are a brilliant idea – who wouldn’t want to receive one of those? And the snickers fudge sounds amazing. I think I’d have bought the whole shop and then spent the rest of the day in a sugar coma ! 🙂

      It was hard to resist buying mountains! When we next visit my friend, I’m definitely going back to Mollies.

      The shop is amazing. I think I might need to ask my friend to send up some Mollie specials. 🙂

    Even though I am lactose intolerant, meaning I can’t have chocolate, this shop sounds unreal! There is a couple of these style shops back home in dublin, but they tend to be much the same to one another and actually very pricy. They were in every area a couple of years ago; but many have shut down because they were too expensive and haven’t gotten business. Mollies sounds amazing! Great post xx

      I was surprised that it wasn’t overly expensive. They had dairy free chocolate, but obviously your choices would be far limited. My Husband is on a very strict fodmap diet, so there is a lot that he can’t eat, but he found a few things too. (not as much as me 😉
      Thank you for reading and commenting Cara. xx

        I have, but I don’t use it much. I really should start using it, but its a learning process. I will go and find you on it and we can link up.

    There are a lot of these type of shops around but these one looks great especially with the train and Disney songs!

    Hi Amanda! I’m so glad you found my blog and linked up with my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party! Thank You :)) That sure is a big candy store…love how it’s called the American Candy Store. Guess that means American’s like me eat lots of sweets lol?

      Thank you for hosting the party. They sold a lot of sweets that we don’t see usually in regular shops, I think those are the American ones, like Herseys etc. Delicious.
