Welcome to The Sweetie Jar’s blog, with a nostalgic dip back in time, some of my sweet memories and some great sweet gift ideas!

I’m not an expert in confectionery and we don’t manufacture sweets….I am just someone who has fond memories of visiting my local sweetshop as a child.  It was these ‘sweet’ memories from my childhood days that gave me the idea for ‘The Sweetie Jar’.
