ChocoLoons Sweet Shop, just inside the Diamond Centre on Bridge Street, Coleraine is sweetie heaven! Willy Wonka himself would be envious of the fantastic selection in store.
From old fashioned favourites to sugar free options, American candy and TikTok trending treats like Crazy Candy Factory Fruit Pops or giant Gobstoppers, ChocoLoons has it all.
For those with a real sweet tooth, ChocoLoons gift boxes are the perfect gift, whether it’s Christmas, Easter or birthdays.
Owner Teresa explained: “The gift hampers start from £10 upwards to whatever value you choose.
“We can fill them with absolutely anything. Recently we’ve done a kids TikTok box, an American candy box and even a hamper filled purely with Christmas themed sweets.
“We also offer our smaller gift boxes which you can fill up to whatever value or amount you require.
“Lately we have had requests from people for full jars of their favourite sweets so we can do that too.”
For the customer who isn’t into the latest trends there are old traditionals such as Coconut Mushrooms, Chewing Nuts and Grays Tea Cakes to name but a few; Quality Street’s Purely Purple filled with crunchy hazelnuts and rich caramel and a selection of sugar free options.
“We have a diverse range of people coming into the shop,” added Teresa. “From the very young to the old, we like to cater for everyone.
“We get a lot of people who are diabetic or are on Slimming World or Weight Watchers diets coming in for the sugar free sweets.
“The sugar free sweets can satisfy your need for something sweet with much less of an impact on your blood sugar, so if you have diabetes they are a better choice for keeping blood sugar stable. If you’re trying to lose weight, you can eat the sugar free sweets because they offer sweetness without sabotaging your diet.”
With rows and rows of jars of tempting coloured sweets to choose from your biggest dilemma will be what to choose – why wait for Christmas or a special occasion, why not treat yourself to a ChocoLoons gift hamper today – you really won’t be disappointed.
