Here at Ma Humbugs we specialise in Old Fashioned Sweets as well as our own Homemade Fudge. We opened in June 2006 and, having moved premises in 2011, can now be found at Viables Craft Centre in Basingstoke. We pride ourselves on being a proper sweet shop, so if you have an old favourite from years ago then why not come in for a visit?


We have over 100 varieties of sweets, including Aniseed Balls, Chocolate Limes, Pear Drops, Sherbet Lemons, Strawberry Bon Bons and everything in between. We display all our sweets in the old fashioned jars and measure them out for you at the counter. We can also supply personalised party bags, gift boxes and jars of sweets to order.


As well as our range of weigh-out sweets we also have retro favourites such as Wham Bars, Sherbet Fountains, Fizz Wiz (space dust), Dip Dabs, Fruit Salads, Black Jacks and Love Hearts. Our shop has become rather popular with both young and old alike over the past 7 years, and we hope that when you visit us you will enjoy it as much as our regular customers.


Our delicious Homemade Fudge is made on the premises.  We usually have at least 12 different flavours on display including Vanilla, Caramel, Mint & Chocolate, Banoffee, Rum & Raisin and Cherry Vanilla Nut. We are always adding new flavours, so why not drop by and see what’s new.


If you would like to know more about what we have to offer, then please feel free to give us a call on 01256 351733 or visit the shop and we will be more than happy to assist you.
