Hallelujah Willy Wonka is alive!

He’s gone off in his magic lift and set up this amazing sweet shop in Budapest. Sugar Candy Land knows how to respect the sweets – you don’t just go in with a paper bag and fill your boots here, oh no. They have counters filled with different kinds, a seated area to sit and enjoy them in a relaxed environment and the most amazing bathroom I’ve ever seen to wash up in afterwards.

Best sweet shop in the world

Best sweet shop, ever

I was drawn to the syrupy scent from the sun beaten pavements of Budapest, unknowingly stepping into the best sweet shop I’ve ever seen. I proved the worth of the analogy ‘like a kid in a sweet shop’ or some people might say, ‘like a bull in a china shop’. I was like a curious cat with a laser play toy as I tried to take in the rainbow of candy colours in front of me.

I finally chose the Tejberizsekas as it’s a traditional Hungarian dessert. It was kind of like rice pudding but with all the delicacies I put on it, it was a very fatty one. I didn’t know what I was doing and just kept ordering sweets on sweets – I attempted fruit for a sense of health, but they were pickled in sugar, and absolutely delicious. I wolfed the lot down with a coffee – yes, it’s a coffee bar too – and promptly felt the sugar high.

I sat at the bar stools and ogled the rest of the food while I digested the delicacies I’d already had.

The bathroom

Before you leave you should check out the bathroom. It’s genuinely the best one I’ve ever seen in all my years and I will definitely be replicating it, should I ever get a house.

It took all my strength not to go back again the next day. And that means I’ve earned double portions next time I go in my eyes.

By the time I left I definitely felt like a bit of a Veruca Salt, although I did debate the extensive range of ice creams I spotted on the way out.

Could you stop at one sweet treat?

You’ll find Sugar Candy Land at Paulay Ede utca 48, 1061 Hungary, and it’s open until 10pm!
