Jul 14, 2016   //   by shm@rk   //   Latest News, Special Occasion Sweets, Sweets & Treats Store  //  No Comments

It is COLD outside. Winter has well and truly hit Tassie this year with freezing temps,  rain, wind and even snow.  Never fear, we have come up with 5 ways you can stay warm at Sweets & Treats while giving your taste buds a treat at the same time.

Hot Chocolate: Winter at Sweets & Treats means one thing – Hot Chocolate. But not just any hot chocolate, our wintery warm drink is actually made from real chocolate! If you want something a little bit different, spice it up with one of delicious syrups like our amazing Turkish Delight Syrup.

Hot Nut Bar: We can promise you, they taste as good as they smell and they smell as good as they look! Our hot nut bar is the perfect way to warm you up from the inside with an amazing selection including cashews, honey peanuts and macadamias. You’ll be coming back for more!

Coffee, tea and Chai:  Whatever your preference of warm beverages we’ll have you covered. Since our renovation we have the added addition of our amazing new coffee machine which is guaranteed to satisfy even the toughest coffee snob!

Waffle Boats: Yes we admit, there is a bit of a chill factor with our scrumptious waffles with the addition of ice-cream but we think it’s worth it!

Chocolate: Event though our range of chocolate and choc-coated sweets isn’t hot temperature wise, there’s just something about these sweet sensations which seems to make us feel warm and fuzzy all over. Check out our huge range of goodies in store or online.

Stay warm everyone!

Time to put on a thick coat, some gloves and a hat and brave the cold because we have some lovely treats to warm you up from the inside for you in our wonderful new Sweets & Treats store.

Our theme today is Turkish – fresh in this week is a batch of hand made Turkish Delight – cubes of dusted, rose flavoured gooey deliciousness. Or have it chocolate coated and double the fun. Or warm up with an old fashioned cup of Hot Cocoa with a splash of Turkish Delight syrup – you can’t get much better than that.

All of this deliciouness is presented in our beautifully quirky Art Cups to add even more love to the experience. The Echidna design is one of the best so far!

Made In Tasmania

Jul 31, 2014   //   by shm@rk   //   Latest News, Sweets, Sweets & Treats Store  //  No Comments

At Sweets & Treats we pride ourselves on supplying Tasmanian made sweets to our customers. As well as supporting other local businesses, it is giving our visitors a taste of something different that they may not have had the opportunity to taste before.

Amongst the Butterballs and Peanut Brittle, by far one of the favourites in our Made in Tasmania range is the Giant Freckle shaped as a Map of Tasmania. This is a fantastic novelty item and a favourite ‘gift’ for people to take back home with them. Although, we have doubts if these giant freckles made it past the carpark with their amazing flavour!

Check out our full range of Made in Tasmania sweets here.
