Best Bag of Sweets (BBoS)

Best Bags of Sweets (BBoS) has been trading on @St Ives Market and @Huntingdon markets for around 20 years. Over this time we’ve gained a good reputation. With many varieties priced below recommended retail price, we frequently go above and beyond expectations to please customers, who are more like friends than customers, so yes we will return to the markets, as and when appropriate to do so.

We never planned to trade on the internet, but then these aren’t usual times. Staying away from the market during this crisis, we feel was right, due to underlying health problems. So are offering a local, free, home delivery, with prices held from market trading.

We are updating our list of available sweets each time we are making orders up for delivery, hopefully it’ll be fully listed within 2 weeks. Last week we were asked for 2 items that were out of stock, we are hoping that will be remedied this week, so if you’re interested in something we haven’t listed yet, then please let us know asap so it can be included on our order.

Orders can be made through the following link, messenger or by using comments. Mobile number available on request.

Payment can be Cash, PayPal, Bank Transfer or card

Our General Categories are:
General Pick & Mix @ 95p/100g
Sugar Free Pick & Mix @ £1.50/100g
