Is this candy actually old?
Although our candy is old-fashioned, the candy itself is not old - it is fresh from the high-quality manufacturers that still make it. We source our fashioned lollies from companies that have been making these sweets for decades, and it’s people like you that are keeping these businesses alive!
Is all of your old-fashioned candy in stock?
If our sweets aren't in stock, you will see an ‘out of stock’ label on our website. If you are looking for something that we have sold out of, contact us, and we will keep you informed about when we will have your favourite item back in stock again.
Do you make the classic Australian lollies you sell?
At Sweets World, we’re not candy manufacturers - we are candy sellers. This means we source our local and international sweets from various manufacturers that exist in Australia and overseas. All of the manufacturers we source our sweets from are highly regarded and have a reputation for quality.
Can I buy your old fashioned Australian lollies in person?
Yes! Our candy is available online as well as in person at our Newcastle store. Our physical shop is called ‘Kards & Kandy’ and was established in 1965. Both our online and physical businesses are 100% Australian owned and family-run.
How long does your Australian confectionery take to ship?
We ship our confectionery all year round through Australia Post. You have the option of standard delivery, which takes 4-7 business days, or expedited delivery, which has the option of overnight or two-day shipping. We’re sure you will love the convenience and speed of ordering with us online - and if you experience any issues with your order at any point, just give us a call and we will fix it.
How should I store my old Australian candy?
In general, we recommend that you store your old Australian candy at room temperature and not in the freezer or the fridge. Although if you live in a particularly warm climate, then yes, confectionery like chocolate should be stored in the fridge!
Do you have Afterpay?
Yes, you can purchase our Australian lollies with Afterpay! This service allows you to pay for our items in instalments, which is really handy if you are on a budget. To get started, all you need to do is make an Afterpay account and then simply click the ‘Afterpay’ button when you buy something on our website.
