Hi guys, I'm back! I've been on a longer than intended hiatus thanks to a new job, new projects and various other life type things getting in the way.
So, let's get back on track shall we?
I'd like to introduce to you a lovely little business based in North Yorkshire called Bah Humbugs Sweet Shop and to Lucy, the brains behind it all. Bah Humbugs opened in 2004 after Lucy reminisced with friends about classic British sweets from their youth. Soon, Lucy found herself a shop in the Yorkshire Dales and having roped in friends and family to help, sourced the best classic sweets around and started a booming business! Bah Humbugs now has an online shop so you can get your retro sweets wherever you are!
Bah Humbugs sells over 200 different sweets including suckable rhubarb and custards (a personal favourite), chewy Wham bars, soft fudge and fizzy sherbets! They are especially proud of their amazing collection of over 50 liquorice varieties! As you may know, Yorkshire is synonymous with liquorice so Lucy and Bah Humbugs are definitely staying true to their roots! They also offer hampers and party bags so you can share your sweeties with your friends and family (if you can bare to!)
Now, I got a parcel of sweeties from Lucy this morning. Look at them all! I'm so lucky! I've got some plans to bake with some of these delicious treats (but I might have to fight Al for the space dust!)
Bah Humbugs have a great online presence with their blog and their YouTube based Sour Challenge! (I might have to get Al in on that - he's a pro with sour sweets!)
