There were loads of tempting sweets available but as it was a hot day we bought ice creams and were pleased to receive a Friday discount. The shop assistant was very friendly and helpful. We plan to come back and choose some nostalgic sweets.

We visited here as a family to buy some sweets and presents for X Mas.We were amazed at the wide selection of chocolate, fudge, Pic n Mix, sweets and bespoke gifts on offer. This shop has everything to offer from Retro sweet collection boxes, to hand made Belgian chocolates, jars of goodies and bespoke party bags. The staff are very friendly, helpful and give the best welcome in any shop in Penarth.!
Thank you for the ultimate X Mas chocolate experience!
We will be back !! 😊

Umpa Lumpa in a lovely Penarth arcade, exudes warmth and colour both outside and in. Bottom line is, there is no other sweet and chocolate shop like it. I was talking yesterday to Karen(the owner) and Mel, who along with their other colleagues are ‘Oooo’ so ever friendly. If you’re not sure of a particular sweet you can try it first. I buy not only for myself but also my colleagues at work, who all have their particular favourites. I leave with separate little bags of sweets with their names written on.
Last Christmas I bought exquisite hand made Belgium chocolates, picked individually and placed in decorative boxes. What beautiful presents they were, along with sweet stocking fillers and bars of chocolates with pictures of Penarth on the wrapping. I also bought large novelty tools(in my case a spanner and hammer) made out of chocolate. The colouring of the chocolate meant you could not tell that they were not the real article. I very occasionally use Trip Advisor to promote excellence! You take your children to Umpa Lumpa and they will be dragging you back. Although you won’t need much persuading!
