About daisy duke’s american candy store

 

Our History

Daisy Duke’s American Candy Store was borne out of our own deep-seated love of all things sweet and a deep-seated passion for scrumptious, mouthwatering confectionery.

Daisy Duke’s American Candy Store really came about by accident… We were fortunate enough to be brought up eating lots of American confectionery and we loved it – we still do.

A while back, we introduced American candy to our friends in the UK with a 5lb bag of Jolly Rancher hard-boiled candies, some Jelly Belly gourmet jelly beans and a Baby Ruth or two. We were asked to get more… and more…and more.

Individual candy bars packed into suitcases in NYC became cartons, cartons then filled a container, a container became regular freighted candy imports…. The rest, as they say, is history.

Our Mission Statement

Daisy Duke’s American Candy Store came about in 2012. From the beginning, we had big aspirations… we wanted to create the very best online sweetshop where candy fans could buy the best American candy and extraordinary British sweets.

We are continually striving to become the best confectionery shop in the UK. And, for that matter, the very best candy store on planet earth, heck, let’s say the universe... Our aspirations always have been pretty lofty....

Daisy Duke’s American Candy Store’s mission was simple from the beginning:

  • To share our love of American candy with others and introduce the delights of American candy to new audiences
  • To provide the very best American candy and British sweets in the UK and satisfy the most discerning of British sweet fanatics and American candy lovers alike
  • To offer unrivalled customer care and consistently outstanding service and do everything we can to ensure our customers are delighted and tell their friends.
  • To treat our partners, customers, staff and competitors with respect, honesty and fairness.
