Aunt Sandra’s Candy Factory

Aunt Sandra’s Candy Factory at Castlereagh Road, Belfast, home of hand made chocolates, fudge and boiled sweets, made from 100 year old recipes. A visit to the shop is like taking a trip back in time to an Alladdin’s cave of candy and colour.

Traditional jars of sweets

A viewing window into the small quaint factory allows visitors to look in on the whole production process as well as enjoy tastes and smells of old-time candy-making at its best, using authentic 1950’s equipment.
