If you have ever been shamed at the supermarket for bulk-buying bags of lollies and blocks of chocolate when they are on sale, then you might need to consider feeding your sweet tooth in a slightly more surreptitious style. Here are five of the biggest and most unusual online lolly stores in Perth.
Lolly Warehouse Although primarily an online shop, you are allowed to visit the Warehouse itself in Landsdale (Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm) to be dazzled by sheer quantity of sugar in one room. This is where all the brides shop because it's home of the lolly buffet - and you can choose your lollies and chocolates by colour as well as occasion (they have a whole range of Halloween themed lollies and a huge retro section). If a lolly exists somewhere on the planet, chances are you find it here. Check out how to make a lolly buffet here.
Two words: bulk lollies. Whether you are getting married, hosting a birthday party or just have a seriously sweet tooth, get online because Goody Goody Gum Drops deliver across Western Australia every single day with a range of options from 'I can wait' to 'give it to me now.' Most importantly, they have pre-selected lolly buffets ready to go, for those of you who can't make up your mind. Going to a baby shower for a little boy? Buy the Blue candy Buffet that is ready to go ($100). Celebrating a major win – try the rainbow buffet with seven different types of lollies in all the colours of the rainbow ($100).
Funworks You can find Funworks in many of the major shopping centres, but if you prefer to keep your sugar dependency a secret you can also buy online. Funworks doesn't just sell lollies and chocolates, though of course you can buy a huge range of sweets from around the world (including gluten free and vegetarian choices), but Funworks also sells drinks, sugary breakfast treats, hot sauces and chips – making it a totally snackalicious option.

British Lolly Shop Home of the original British Lolly Shop, a trip to Hillarys Boat Harbour isn't complete without a quick trip to buy a bag of your favourite British sweets. But the best thing about shopping British online is their fabulous gift boxes such as the 'Homesick Pommie' ($115) full of British delights both sweet and savoury (Paxo stuffing anyone?), great lolly hampers for new parents (blue and pink) and even dedicated Scottish and Irish hampers. Much more original than sending a bunch of flowers.
Lollies'n'Stuff You have to head to eBay to find Lollies'n'Stuff where you will find a huge range of confectionery from around the world, but you can buy things in bulk that you might not find elsewhere such as multiple packs of Bertie Botts Beans, catering sized boxes of sour straps, bulk packs of nerds and so much more. So much more in fact, that they have almost 1,000 different lollies and stuff for sale.
