Frequently Asked Questions.

  • Where is your Sweet Shop based?

Daffy-down-dilly, our sweet shop is based in the beautiful seaside town of Sidmouth in Devon. We count our blessings all the time that we are lucky enough to live and work in this stunning part of the county. All our online sweet orders are packed and dispatched from our shop by trained staff. We hold a 5* Food Hygiene Rating as assessed by the Food Standards Agency so you can rest assured that we ensure that you only receive the very best in quality confectionery.

Our online sweet shop offers our lovely customers that opportunity to buy sweets online at any time of the day or night and is a popular option for many. We deliver throughout the UK and all orders over the value of £30, all retro sweet hampers and American Candy Hampers qualify for FREE delivery

  • Why are you called Daffy-down-dilly?

The name derives from the nursery rhyme – Daffy-down-dilly has come to town in a yellow petticoat and a green gown. We were inspired to use the name following the tremendously valuable work being undertaken by the Keith Owen Trust and so many local organisations and individuals making Sidmouth the town of a million daffodils. You’ll notice that our brand is strongly influenced by the Daffodil – yellow and green is pretty much everywhere… it’s always Spring at Daffy!
