Stepping into Sugar Rush is like stepping into a scene from Willy Wonka. You are met with vibrant and vivid colours that make up a mountain of tasty treats for your eyes alone to feast on.
There are rows and rows of all the sweets you could think of – nougat, jelly beans, cola cubes, gobstoppers, bon-bons, but owner Ray Dixon says the best sellers are old Lancashire favourites, sarsaparilla sticks and coltsfoot rock.
There is a fine balance of sugary produce on offer, from traditional sweets to your more modern fancies such as Brain Lickers. There is also a range of novelty gift packs on sale including giant sweet hampers and candy bouquets, which make a perfect gift.
Likewise, you can buy traditional Fitzpatrick’s cordial in a whole host of flavours including sarsaparilla, blackcurrant and licorice, ginger and elderflower.
Ray has been on Blackburn market for fifteen years, giving him great experience in providing for those with a sweet tooth. This isn’t any old pick ‘n’ mix place and it caters for all tastes and desires, something hard to achieve today. One thing is for certain though – this candy man can!
