All those old-fashioned English sweets you love but can never find in North America (such as horehound drops and lemon sherbets) are sold in this 20-year-old candy shop.

There's a smaller version, the British Candy Shoppe, 2 blocks away at 638 Yates St. (tel. 250/382-2634).

A huge barrel awaited us, but more impressive were the shelves of candy with unfamiliar names. Too many to choose from for me, so we stuck to the taffy. So where's the downside? The staff seemed a little bored and after leaving we found the taffy a... more
