“A special Gem that really shines out from the rest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

This is a quaint traditional sweet shop with jars a plenty! It really takes you back to childhood fond memories. The owners offer a genuine warm welcome with excellent knowledge and light hearted banter :0) A visit to Hebden wouldn't be complete without popping in for a £1 of sweets.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

This little treasure was THE best shop I found in Hebden, with such lovely, friendly staff who had everything you could possibly think of! I went for the first time about 7 ago, and since then it's always been a treat at the end of the month to get down to Hebden Bridge and buy myself a large bag of delicious homemade fudge, bonbons, bubblegum bottles, anything I could want! It's an absolutely amazing shop with a buzzing atmosphere, and the staff really do make you feel so welcome, chatting to you and making the effort to learn your name; if you get the chance to visit the beautiful little town that is Hebden Bridge, make this your first shop as it will definitely give you a feel for the social, friendly town that it is. It's a brilliant place for gifts, whether they be big or small, for your children, your parents, your partner or even for yourself. Highly recommended, love you Something Sweet!

“The little sweet shop that everyone remembers.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

You know that sweet shop down the road that you remember as a kid?
The one you "Just don't get any more." Well, it's still in Hebden Bridge.
Something Sweet has just about everything you ever wanted and everything you remember you ever enjoyed.
The prices are low and my Mrs usually ends up with three bags choc full of stuff to treat her sweet tooth, and it'd cost double in a supermarket,
They make their own fudge and it has to be tasted to be believed, they also have special truffles to tempt people with a more distinguished palette.
It's owners Bob and Gemma are as friendly a couple as you'll ever meet, they treat you like a VIP and make time to ensure you get what you want. And never fail to crack a smile.
The fact that there is a Facebook fan site called "We Love Something Sweet" should also help you understand what a fantastic little place this is.
But beware, the second you walk through the door you'll be five years old again, and you'll never want to go anywhere else for your treats.

“A Trip Down Memory Lane - and some great old-fashioned values!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

An assault on the senses - in a GREAT way! Smells and sights of 'proper' sweets in a 'proper' sweet shop. There really is something for everyone! The staff are phenomenally helpful, and kind - allowing the children to pose behind the counter for photos, and having a proper old-fashioned chinwag. This kind of personal service I assumed had died out many years ago, but Something Sweet just proves that good customer service is alive and well in Yorkshire!
