Welcome to the Beighton’s blog. Here is a place where you can relive fond childhood memories and transport yourself back to the days of spending your pocket money on penny sweets. You can also be safe in the knowledge that you can indulge in the odd sweet or two (who are we kidding), without hearing ‘don’t spoil your tea!’
I believe, it is highly likely that the first purchase you made with your very own money, was something to eat. Also highly likely, it was full of sugar and if you’re anything like me, fueled the sweet tooth that never seems to disappear, no matter how many years go by.
Inside Mrs Beighton’s sweet shop, you will find both children and adults (ok, mainly adults) gazing longingly at all the jars on the shelves… wondering how they can possibly choose.
We hope you do the same here on our website. Although, I must pre warn you… I’m afraid penny sweets, quarters and 4oz are all a thing of the past now.
You will be hearing a lot more from me, so until next time… give into that sweet tooth and enjoy doing so. I know I will (all in the name of research. Obviously)
