For everyone, there's a time of day when the cravings start. It could be mid-morning, straight after dinner, or even in the dead of night. Once it hits, it's difficult to ignore - you need a sugar fix.

Some people prefer to treat this ailment with chocolate, others opt for gummies, jubes, lollypops and other, less subtle, sugar delivery methods. Both paths are equally good, as far as I'm concerned, and most shops which sell lollies sell chocolate as well, so there's rarely a need to choose.

Of course, any corner store can supply you with some generic chocolate bars and jelly babies, but for those of us with more childish - that is to say, more refined - tastes, typical lollies just aren't enough. Sometimes you want to be able to fill a bag with 500 grams of mint leaves, UFOs, racing cars, jelly turtles and freckles.

And that's just for starters.

Maybe you want a sample of chocolates from all over the world: Yorkies, Lions, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups or Double Deckers.

Shops that provide a selection like this - and serve adults without a condescending smile - can be hard to find. So, where do you go to get old-fashioned lollies at old-fashioned prices? Leave your answers and tipoffs in the comments section.
