Stocking a colourful array of candy from all over the world, Tilba Sweet Spot is an old-time sweet shop that even has its own American-inspired milk bar.

What can I buy at Tilba Sweet Spot?

Kids and adults will find their heaven at Tilba Sweet Spot. Whether it’s that long-lost childhood favourite or discovering a new surprise, you’re guaranteed to leave with bags of treats. Jars of rainbow-hued rock candies, sour taffy, gumballs and Fox’s Glacier Mints line the walls, while freshly cut cherry fudge and tins of lollies sit on the counter temptingly.

For retro appeal, you’ll find Chupa Chups, Hubba Bubba gum, boxes of Nerds, sugared almonds and bonbons in every flavour. After you’ve made your purchases, slip into a red Cadillac-shaped booth at Tilba Sweet Spot’s milk bar for a coffee and cake.

What other gourmet treats can I buy when in Tilba?
