What has happened to Cybercandy?
« on: August 12, 2014, 12:13:46 pm »
Unless I am navigating their site incorrectly, the range of stock seems to have drastically reduced. No M&Ms available at all? I was hoping to order some flavoured ones (Mint or Raspberry or Cherry) for my daughter's forthcoming birthday but when I did a 'search' nothing came up.

Also looked for some popular American bars but could not find them. I think a trip to a nearby town with a 'posh' sweetshop is going to be necessary.

What a shame. A few years ago, Cybercandy was heaving with interesting products and browsing their site was a real treat. You felt as if you had eaten the sweets!
Old but spicey!

I think its because the amount of similry shops popping up, my town at one point had two of them.  Even with the higher prices sometimes it still worked out cheaper since you it cuts the PP.

Also supermarkets are doing more american choc too - my local Tesco now has a range of pop tarts, lucky charms, reese's and other stuff. Not a great selection but hopefully they'll improve the range before they drive people like cybercandy out of business.
It is weird that they have such a small selection in cybercandy though (just checked it out) - perhaps they're concentrating on their shops more?

I wish My local Tesco would do a world aisle? Such as Indin, polish, Irish and USA. I had to complain to get Lucky charm into that store, its in the cereal section.
