This is really bad news for me and Hibiscus, someone just opened up a Sweet Shop next door but one to our little ‘News’ Shop in Virtual Kensington! Both Hib and I have a sweet tooth and we are doing our best to stay away from the candy at the moment, but it’s not easy, there are giant pictures of the goodies on the wall and guess what! you can order them in SL to be delivered straight to your door in real life!
Kensington Manager Seany dropped by the other day and I talked to him about the sweets in the shop and we had both seen the pink candy shrimps which so many British people remember from their childhood, Seany called them foam shrimps, and I know what he means, they are that sort of texture. Poor Hibiscus must have had a deprived childhood in Canada, as she had never heard of the pink shrimps and also she had never tried the sherbet filled flying saucers that made your tongue tingle as they melted! There are many of the famous types of sweets in the shop, smarties, aniseed balls, sherbet lemons, pear drops and even fizzy snakes!! Upstairs you can order a posh box of Belgium chocolates, a nice gift for someone special in your life!
Drop in to ‘Sweetie-World’ (owned by bic Bressig) and take a look for yourself. Hib and I are still keeping away from the Liquorice Allsorts and Jelly Beans for now, but it’s not easy……(www.Sweetie-World.co.uk).
PS There was a sprinkling of snow in Virtual Kensington yesterday, brrrrrr makes me feel cold, maybe I will nip into the sweet shop after all and get a bag of Humbugs to make me feel warm!!
