Since 1938 (yup) the family-run Dicks Sweets has manufactured nougat, fudges, Turkish delight, boilings, coconut ices, honeycomb and novelty candies. Dicks Sweets was so in demand that the family decided to open a shop in Montreux (pretty much Northcliff) to cater to the public. Their prices are super low and you can buy in bulk as well. It’s also a great place to find nuts that won’t break the bank.
Not just another sweets store in Johannesburg, Sunrise Sweets in the West Rand also sells party supplies (think Minions paper plates and party horns). But let’s stick to the good stuff for now. Sunrise Sweets stocks almost every kind of candy you can think of. From shoestring jellies to pink lemonade-flavoured Zombie Chews, they’ve got you covered. And what about chocolate? Oh, yes they have that too!
The Moody Cow
All you need to know is that in 2017 you can get some of the best ice cream/gelato/candy in Joburg in a little shop in the West Rand called Moody Cow. They specialise predominantly in gelato and other ice cream treats such as milk shakes and such, but they do have an epic candy section where you can purchase everything from hard boils to biltong.
Lindt Chocolate Boutique
No list of candy shops in Joburg is complete without a trip to the Lindt Chocolate Boutique in Sandton. It’s crazy to think that something which started in 1879 in the Bernese Alps of Switzerland has made its way to the edge of Africa. Either way, we’re glad to be able to dabble in the smoothest, silkiest and most chocolatiest chocolate around. Get your fill of Lindt goodness at their flagship store in Sandton City. There you can find all things Lindt, from their chocolate balls to chilli chocolate slabs.
Creative Sweets Factory Store
Established in 2002, Creative Sweets is a family-run business with the goal of providing top-quality confectionery products to South African consumers. They import and distribute items such as sweets, biscuits, chocolates and novelty toys both produced locally and internationally. Creative Sweets is currently the exclusive import agents for Gum-Bo Ballz, Bebeto, Zed Candy, Oatfield Confectionery, Goudas Gilde and King brands in South Africa.
