The British Lolly Shop was opened in Perth in 2002 by an English (of course!) couple Eddie and Deborah Croft. The idea came from fond memories of growing up in England, saving up their pocket money and heading to the local sweet shop, to make the big decision of what to pick from the many rows of jars filled with brightly coloured sweets. I still have the same problem today.... surely not just me!! The idea became so popular that they have expanded and now have shops in Kings Cross and Darling Harbour in Cairns and in New Zealand. I wonder...will we ever grow too old for the lure of the jar filled with coloured sweets, I hope not!!
