Leith Walk is well known mostly for its quirky cafes, restaurants and bars. But venturing further down towards the Shore you’ll stumble across a little blast from the past: Candersons Sweet Shop. A traditional sweet shop, this tiny store truly has every type of candy you could imagine — from the most common fudges to the more elusive sweets from all across the UK lining the walls in a colourful display of jars. One of my favourite choices from this shop is the Chocolate Nibbles – a chocolatey, sugary sweet usually not found anywhere outside the Liverpool area. So, if you’re in Leith and you have a craving for a particular type of sweet, give Candersons a try!
The store is also a hotspot for traditional Scottish fudge and tablet – a favourite with both locals and tourists! The staff in this candy heaven are always friendly and ready to help out with anything you might need. Make sure you pop in for any chocolatey cravings during your stay in Edinburgh!
