Although Mr Simms Worcester is essentially a retro brand, we do have a range of products that suit all ages – from Toxic Waste and Pez Dispensers for young children through Sour Patch Kids for students of psychology and clinical depression to Golden Humbugs for those older people not particularly looking forward to Christmas.
Some of you may remember one of my previous blog posts in which I mentioned Pierre our poltergeist – and that a little boy had confidently told me that ‘he’ was a ‘she’, and called Sarah?
Can anyone tell me who said this: “I have been up against tough competition all my life. I wouldn't know how to get along without it.”
I am a writer and historian with a passion for sweets and football (not necessarily in that order!). I write fiction and non-fiction and, after working in the media for over 30 years, now run a sweet shop with my wife, Michelle, trading as Mr Simms Worcester. I also write about the history of sweets in a series of blog posts: 'A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Sweet Shop.'
