One of my favourite places in the world, is tucked on the corner of Fawcett Street in Sunderland. It used to be a bit of hidden gem but it recently moved to the opposite side of the street and it's bigger and better than ever.
Sweet Home Alabama is the North East's very own Willy Wonka factory! There isn't a sweet yet that these guys don't have. The walls are lined with jars and pots containing every kind of sweet thing possible. From Candy Floss to Gobstoppers, Sweet Home have it.
The great news is for all you Non-North East people that they now sell online too, so if you're really struggling for your Granddad for Christmas, check out their Liqourice section! I popped in on Sunday for some jelly beans to have while I went to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
If you're in the North East, Sweet Home Alabama is located at 2 Fawcett Street and they're pretty much always open - I guarantee you won't leave empty handed! If you're not local though, don't panic everything is available to view and buy online.
