History of the Oldest Sweet Shop
Established in 1827 in the historic and vibrant town of Pateley Bridge in Nidderdale part of the Yorkshire Dales, the Oldest Sweet Shop began selling sweets and luxury chocolates, such as boiled sweets, toffees, herbal & spicy sweets originally prepared, boiled, and made within the sweet shop. Frequented by local mill owners, quarry workers, laborers building the local reservoirs, and of course children, all spending their hard-earned half penny in our shop. Our shop in Pateley became a cornerstone of the local community, a town bustling with busy mills, quarries, and breweries at the height of the industrial revolution.
Solid chocolate was created during the industrial revolution, and the first British chocolate bars were produced by J. S. Fry’s & Sons and Cadbury’s. Many other candies that we now take for granted were also created during this time period and quickly rose to prominence as marvels of the confectionery world. With its jars of sweets, potent boiled sweets, and powerful toffee odors, The Oldest Sweet Shop may have seemed like Willy Wonker alchemy as a pioneer in selling confectionery. It is understandable why The Oldest Sweet Shop gained popularity and notoriety worldwide.
Early in the 20th century, chocolate had a fresh revival, and truffles and other chocolates made in the European tradition gained popularity in England. The Oldest Sweet Shop was able to sell a selection of the finest British chocolate at that time thanks to chocolatiers like Whitaker’s of North Yorkshire and Thorntons of West Yorkshire perfecting and polishing their legacy.
In general, candy throughout the First and Second World Wars became a highly rare and expensive good. Rationing made this more of an issue during the Second World War, but the Oldest Sweet Shop continued to sell treats like Liquorice Root Sticks and Cinder Toffee while also doing something even more important: maintaining the spirits of the many brave young children who had been evacuated to nearby Bewerley Park for safety. Many still visit us today with fond memories and stories to tell.
After the 1950’s sweets became more popular than ever. With advances in production techniques and the discovery of new flavours and ingredients sweets also entered a new renaissance. Black Jacks, Fruit Salads, Refreshers, Kola Cubes, and Whams are but a few that we now refer to as ‘retro’.
Come the 80’s and 90’s the number of sweet shops began to decline due to supermarkets opening across the country with sweets and all the weekly shop in one convenient place but also the advent of pre-bagged sweets which was easier to stock and more profitable – shops replaced the traditional glass jars with rows of plastic bags. The Oldest Sweet Shop however continued with tradition, keeping the glass jars (which are still used today of course – those that haven’t been broken!)
Since little candy stores are popping up all over the country and many of the owners make a trip to our business, the Oldest Sweet Shop is happily still as busy as ever. Old-fashioned sweets and rows of glass jars are becoming popular once again. All of this demonstrates the significance of the institution of candy stores in England, which still exists today. The Oldest Sweet Shop, which has many happy memories and is dear to our hearts, has been dubbed a “National Treasure” by the Daily Mail.
