Hahndorf is the ultimate old-style town in Adelaide, and you can't go there without a trip to Humbugs old-style lolly shop. The building may be small, but inside you'll find a huge range of tasty sweets to treat both young and old. From boiled candy to fresh fudge, everything is on offer here.

Most of the sweets available are made locally, and these are all packaged in sweet plastic bags with the Humbugs logo. These include things like peanut brittle, lemon drops, rhubarb and custard lollies, liquorice, and so much more. You can either buy large bags filled with the sweets, or customise your purchase by grabbing a basket and choosing their pick and mix option. You'll be able to get the exact lollies that tickle your tastebuds.

Not everything is old-style traditional candy, Humbugs still stock all of your modern day favourites. You can stock up on Wonka or Cadbury products, especially hard to find ones that are found in the US or UK. The range can vary, but you'll love looking for things like pop rocks, nerds, and so much more.

Of course, like most old-style lolly shops, the pride and glory of the store is its homemade fudge. Displayed in a glass cabinet, you'll be able to choose from many available flavours. These can vary all the time, but think tasty treats like caramel, peppermint, jaffa, chocolate and more. Fudge lovers can also buy tasty bags of clotted cream fudge.

Humbugs is your typical old-style lolly shop, but the charm of this little store fits perfectly in the surrounding Hahndorf village. It is a must see when you're visiting the old German town, and adds a sweet taste to your trip.
