The original and only Sweet Factory in Somerset open to the public. We make sweets the traditional way and have been doing so for 100 years, which is why our sweet flavours are still just how you remember them.

About Us

The Cheddar Sweet Kitchen was set up in the early 1980's with the intention of producing many of the Old Fashioned types of Confectionery that were made by the local home made sweet shop which was so popular up until the second world war.

Owned by the Mizen family who have been making sweets in the area for over 100 years, 5 generations of the family have now been involved in the business.

History

In the period between the two wars virtually all towns and many large villages had their own small sweet shop where the local Sweetmaker produced a huge range of Hand Made Confectionery, which was only sold and known locally.

When these shops closed many types of favourite products disappeared, The Cheddar Sweet Kitchen set out to remedy this situation and now produces a huge range of old fashioned boiled sweets, toffees, fudges, peanut brittle, rainbow sherbet, rock and lollipops.

Owing to its geographical position, situated in the heart of Cheddar Gorge, it was decided to open a production area with a viewing facility so that visitors could see just how things were done. This has now become one of the area's major tourist attractions, welcoming over 100,000 visitors every year. Now believed to be Somerset's top free visitor attraction.

In a recent survey by a National Newspaper The Cheddar Sweet Kitchen has been listed as one of the Top 20 Free Tourist Attractions in the whole of the U.K.

The Cheddar Sweet Kitchen has been featured on many T.V and Radio programs over the years and filming has been done by the Disney Channel, ITV and the BBC. The CBeebies series of Big Cook Little Cook, made at The Cheddar Sweet Kitchen is shown regularly on the Children's Channel.

Wherever possible Natural Flavoursand Colours are used, when we make our Clotted Cream Fudge many key ingredients come from Somerset Farms.
