A tasty addition to the centre of South Molton in the form of traditional sweet shop Bon Bons, is hoping to stick around for a long time to come.
The independent store in Broad Street, with its row upon row of glass jars containing sugary delights in the best tradition of years gone by, is owned by local couple Rachel and Calum Robb, from Filleigh.
"We have been astonished by the response from the public and it has completely surpassed our expectations," said Calum.
"Aside from the fact my wife has a very sweet tooth, we opened Bon Bons because South Molton hasn't had a sweet shop for more than 10 years. The last one was Dave Ducker's Sweete Shoppe on South Street."

Bon Bons stocks far more than glass jars of "gob stoppers," with a vast array of candied goodies of all descriptions plus chocolate, fudge, ice cream, liquorice, nougat and honey, to name a few.
