Review:

Hope and Greenwood are delightfully irresistible shops in London that celebrate the best of British confectionery. Inspired by Miss Hope's memories of playing sweet shops in the garden as a child, the shops evoke the Britain of yesteryear, selling everything from sherbet lemons to indulgent chocolate truffles. Miss Hope and Mr Greenwood opened their first shop in Dulwich, South London, in 2004 and following its huge success, opened their second in Covent Garden, London in 2008. They are the winners of a Gold Medal in The Great Taste Awards for their chocolate and have a website, www.hopeandgreenwood.co.uk.
